Each year, the Editors of Car & Driver look across the entire landscape of American cars, picking from hundreds of different models, and choose the ten best in the country. Imagine how great it would be for a vehicle to achieve this 10Best designation even once. Now imagine that one car has made the Car & Driver 10Best list for an astonishing 36 years in a row. That car is the Honda Accord available at Saccucci Honda in Middletown RI.

Accord: The most honored 10Best award winner of all time

No other vehicle in America comes close. The Honda Accord has the most 10Best awards in the history of this very respected recognition. In addition, Honda is the most frequently-recognized brand among all the 10Best winners with a total of 66 awards. At least one Honda model has made the list since it was started back in 1983. This long-running commitment to excellence is one reason the Accord is so popular in communities like Newport, RI.

Honda Accord: The best-selling U.S.-made car over the last 50 years

It's not just automotive experts who admire the Honda Accord. It's also a whole lot of regular people. According to Wards Intelligence, Honda Accord has outsold every other passenger car in America since 1970. The Accord has total cumulative U.S. sales of more than 14 million and American production of more than 12 million since Honda became the first Japanese car maker to produce U.S.-made cars nearly 40 years ago.

Accolades from industry experts with high standards

Eddie Alterman, Car & Driver's Chief Brand Officer, noted that the Car & Driver editors keep recommending the Honda Accord, not only to their readers but also to their family and friends. He called the 2022 Accord "the benchmark of the mid-size sedan class" and described the new Accord as "refined, engaging and affordable." It's no wonder that so many millions of people rely on the Honda Accord for its reliability, efficiency and style.

The Honda Accord never stops moving ahead

As the leader of the mid-size sedan classification, the new Accord brings dynamic exterior design and a refined interior to the market. Sedan buyers can choose from three powertrains that include a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 192 horsepower, another four-cylinder turbo with 252 horsepower and a hybrid with a four-cylinder gas engine and two motors that together can achieve a combined EPA-estimated rating of 48 miles per gallon.

For 2022, the Honda Accord Hybrid lineup is adding a new Sport model to replace the EX trim. Some of the more attractive new standard features available on the Sport trim are the integration of wireless Apple CarPlay┬« and Android Auto™ functionality, 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and fog lights, Sirius XM radio and an audio system with eight speakers, all suitable for long-distance road trips from Providence or South Kingstown, RI.

What's available in the new Accord at higher levels

The highest-level Accord is the Touring trim. For 2022, it offers heated and cooled leather front seats, heated seats in the rear and the on-road clarity of a head-up display. It's a system that projects vital driving data like vehicle speed, weather updates and even where to turn next on your way to Bristol RI or Dartmouth MA, all shown easily and unobtrusively on the windshield right in front of you.
