Honda Accord Makes Car and Driver 10Best List for 36th Time  

The prestigious Car and Driver 10Best award is pretty historic in its own right, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a person who thinks the Honda Accord has to work very hard to make the list year after year. The Accord is a "refined, dynamically engaging and affordable" sedan (according to Chief Brand Officer of Car and Driver), but it's also one of America's oldest sedans. It's actually the bestselling car in America for 50 years and counting. Today's celebration for the model is its 36th straight listing on the Car and Driver10Best list.

2022 Honda Accord Listing

Car and Driver started their list in 1983, when Star Wars movies and toys ruled the earth and MTV was first making its name in America. This was understandably a different time in America, but the Honda Accord had all the right ingredients to be an instant hit with Car And Driver. It fit in back then; it fits in today.

The newest model features a turbocharged 1.5L engine with a CVT transmission and gets up to 252 horsepower. A hybrid powertrain features a 2.0L turbocharged engine and 10-speed automatic transmission for a net horsepower of 212. Most importantly, Honda brings its A-game this year on safety. Every single trim comes with Honda Sensing. You'll have Lane keeping and automatic emergency braking during those times when you get a little too carried away with your driving fun.

Honda was gracious in accepting their place on the list again. Michael Kistemaker is the assistant vice president of Honda National Sales for American Honda Motor Company, and he was issued a very humble but proud statement: "Thank you to the editors of Car and Driver for honoring the Accord for a record 36th year. It never gets old." When you've got a winner like the Accord on your team, you know you're not accepting your last award ever. You can definitely expect it to earn yet another spot on this list and to continue being one of the bestselling cars in America, if not the bestselling. The future for this midsize sedan is bright.
