Comfortable, efficient, well-engineered, family-friendly, and fun to drive, there aren’t many vehicles out there that give the complete package like the Honda Accord does, and it’s easy to see why it has remained such a popular choice for people with all kinds of different lifestyles and priorities.

The Honda Accord was first introduced in 1976 and achieved immediate success. Honda realized the need for small, functional, and efficient cars among Americans looking to be economical and practical. Instead of creating a car that was pure practicality, Honda introduced a hatchback that was also stylish, fun, and high-quality. A four-door Accord sedan was introduced in 1979, with increased power as well as more space. In 1990, the Accord took a big leap in size as well as power through the addition of a V6 engine. It also added more standard features across its trims, and remained incredibly popular throughout the 1990s. The 2003 Accord added some excitement to the Accord family with more engine power, a better suspension, and a refined cabin. The Accord was fully redesigned in 2008 and became still more powerful and larger without losing any of its renowned efficiency.

The 2016 Honda Accord continues the remarkable reputation of this model. This year’s model received updated exterior styling to give the face of the Accord a more fresh, sleek look, and updated its suspension, as well as adding new technology like a seven-inch touchscreen with smartphone compatibility. New safety features are now available through the Honda Sensing package across all of the Accord trims, which include a rearview camera and blind spot monitoring. Today the Accord comes powered by 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. Among the different trims, you have the options of both an automatic transmission as well as a CVT, and a more powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine is available that puts out 278 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque.

The Honda Accord was an exceptional vehicle from its first introduction and didn’t take long to become the beloved vehicle that it is today. As special as the first Accord was, throughout the years this practical and fun car has improved by leaps and bounds, staying practical and efficient as it adds on more power, more fun, and modernizes to bring you the latest technology. The 2016 Honda Accord is the perfect choice for many families, and we’d love for you to come check out the 2016 Accord at our Honda dealership near Annville so you can try it for yourself. We hope to see you at our 1900 Cumberland Street location soon so we can get you behind the wheel of an Accord.
