Honda Accord: The Best Just Keeps Getting Better
Midsize car buyers in Louisiana know what they are getting when they choose to get behind the wheel of a Honda Accord. It’s always been known as one of the most dependable and reliable automobiles on the market. Many Accord owners report getting ten or more years of use out of their vehicle, and the Accord is consistently one of the top sellers in the competitive midsized car category. Honda has maintained the vehicle’s quality craftsmanship over the years, but has also recently injected a new sense of style into the Accord’s exterior design. Today’s Accord doesn’t just offer a reliable mode of transportation, it’s also fun to drive and a definite head turner in the “looks” category.
When you combine the Accord’s reliability with its incredibly high resale value, it’s easy to see why it continues to roll off dealer lots in droves year after year. Honda of Slidell has a great selection of new Accords to choose from and they’re all on sale at our Slidell, LA dealership. Now’s the time to get your new Accord and experience the true value, sophistication and style of this perennial best-selling midsized car.
A Brief Look at the All-New 2018 Accord
Honda has completely redesigned their flagship vehicle for the 2018 model year. The Accord now features a bold, new style along with more incredible interior features and tech options. This year’s Accord is shorter, sits lower and is wider than the outgoing model. The cabin now features even more legroom for rear seat occupants.
The factory made sure to make the highly popular Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functions available on the 2018 Accord via the eight-inch color touchscreen inside the car. In addition, the Honda Sensing Safety package comes standard on every trim level of the 2018 Accord and includes features such as Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Traffic Sign Recognition.
A Look into the Honda Accord’s Past
The first Honda Accord hit the North American market in 1976. It followed the debut of the Honda Civic which arrived during the oil crisis of the 1970’s. While the Civic had been a hit with buyers, Accord was an even bigger success as it offered the fuel economy advantages of Civic with more room and power. The Accord was initially available as a two door hatchback and impressed buyers not only with its performance, but also with its standard equipment that domestic cars charged extra for at the time. After three years of steady and strong sales, Honda launched a four door sedan version of the Accord in 1979. Engine power was increased in this model Accord and Honda continued to refine the equipment and features on the vehicle based on consumer feedback. Over the next decade, Accord sales continued to grow as import vehicles began to find more favor with the American car buyer. Honda made the decision to add a V6 engine to the Accord in 1995 and this marked a trend toward an increase in overall vehicle size for the next generations to come. This was the beginning of the emergence of sport utility vehicles in the market and buyers wanted vehicles with more room. During the next two decades, the Honda Accord continued to evolve with the changing tastes and needs of the American car buying public. The Accord has consistently been one of the top selling midsized cars in the USA over the years and shows no signs of slowing down.
