2010 Initial Quality Study Results
2010 Honda Accord
The Honda Accord is a full-size 4-door sedan or midsize 2-door coupe. Designed with families in mind, the Accord Sedan offers much interior room and a long list of standard amenities. The Accord Coupe is slightly sportier than the sedan, yet only a bit smaller. Both models are offered with 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder engines, front-wheel drive, and a choice of automatic or manual transmissions.
The Honda Accord was first introduced in 1976. The diminutive 3-door hatchback was small (it rode on a wheelbase smaller than today's Honda Fit), but American consumers grew to like its fuel-efficient powerplant. A sedan body style joined the coupe in 1979 (a wagon was soon to follow). With the opening of a domestic assembly facility in 1982, the Honda Accord became the first Japanese-branded model to be manufactured in the United States.
In 1998, the Accord sedan graduated from the compact car class to the midsize segment. In 2008, after 32 years on the market, the all-new eight-generation Accord made its debut. The biggest variant yet (it's classified as a Large Car by the EPA in sedan form), the 2010 Honda Accord offers more interior space, more horsepower, and more standard features than before.
