When Car and Driver’s 10Best list is released each year, it’s virtually a guarantee that you’ll see the Honda Accord mentioned somewhere near the top. Earning an unprecedented 31st appearance on this year’s list—remarkably, the Accord has more appearances than most manufacturers total—Honda’s premier sedan is showing no signs of slowing down. Read below to discover why the 2017 Honda Accord is such a stud.
A Bona Fide Family Sedan
What truly sets the 2017 Honda Accord apart from the competition? Its family-friendly nature certainly helps.
Though it’s a bit shorter than the 2016 model, the all-new Accord feels far roomier on the inside thanks to intelligent packaging and design choices. Comfortable rear seating provides extensive amounts of legroom, nearly matching what’s offered in the front. The roofline is higher than that of other sedans, so headroom is never a concern. Standard 60/40-split folding seats open up the trunk, pushing its cargo capacity way up from 15.8 cubic feet. Even the material quality adds to the allure.
The Accord is also an impressive road trip-taking sedan. It sips gas like a pro—EPA estimates on the Accord come in at 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway—and comes with nifty features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, multiple USB ports, HondaLink®, rear cup holders, HD audio with Song by Voice®, and dual-zone automatic climate controls. Noise and vibrations are also minimal even when flooring it down to Orlando or taking sharp turns on the pothole-ridden roads of Leesburg.
Visibility is never a concern from the Accord’s driver seat, which can be positioned high enough to overlook the hood. Thin pillars never obstruct the view, and the large windows span from front to back. LaneWatch cameras also aid in keeping drivers alert to blind spots. Numerous Honda Sensing™ systems come standard or are optional, including Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation, and a rearview camera.
Efficient, spacious, and safe, the 2017 Honda Accord is undoubtedly the number-one family car.
