Honda Accord Voted the Best Family Sedan

Chatham Honda Presents: Honda Accord Voted the Best Family Sedan

The Honda Accord has once again claimed the title of Best Family Sedan in the highly regarded 2023 AutoTrader Awards.

Evolution from the Previous Generation

Despite the outgoing 10th-generation model's presence since 2018, the Honda Accord continues to reign as the Best Family Sedan, surpassing its relatively newer counterparts. Although the details of the new 11th-generation Accord are still emerging, it’s evident that Honda has employed an evolutionary approach in enhancing its winning formula rather than pursuing a complete overhaul. The Accord's underpinning and general updates have received revisions, ensuring that it maintains its status as a modern and competitive family sedan.


Windshield Care


Visibility is key in snowy conditions. Ensure your heater and defrosters are working efficiently. Use a quality ice scraper to clear your windshield, and remember to regularly top up your windshield washer fluid with a type containing antifreeze. This practice prevents ice buildup and maintains clear visibility. Also, turn off your wipers before shutting off your car’s engine and power to prevent them from freezing in place, which can damage the motor.

Superiority Over Competitors

The Honda Accord faced tough competition from rival sedans. Each competitor brings its unique attributes to the table. The Hyundai and Kia duo boast an array of advanced features and bold styling, while the Camry showcases the best hybrid system within this segment. The Legacy offers standard all-wheel drive, with the Camry offering it as an optional feature. Despite this fierce competition, the Honda Accord effortlessly navigated its way to victory by presenting a well-balanced combination of features, value, styling, and driving experience.

Trim Levels and Powertrain Options

The 2024 Honda Accord offers three distinct trim levels to cater to various preferences and requirements. The lineup starts with the base EX trim, followed by the Sport Hybrid and Touring Hybrid at the top end. While the shift towards electrification provides new possibilities, driving enthusiasts may lament the absence of the spirited 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which was a flagship powertrain in the previous generation. 

Additionally, the manual transmission, which was discontinued a few years ago, does not make a return in any trim level. However, the Sport Hybrid and Touring Hybrid models deliver adequate power, utilizing a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated gasoline engine coupled with two electric motors. 

The combined output amounts to 204 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque, providing a dynamic and efficient driving experience. On the other hand, the base EX trim retains the reliable 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, generating 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. Expect more details on fuel efficiency ratings as we await a comprehensive road test.

Stylish Design and Interior Features

The 2024 Honda Accord exhibits refined yet conservative styling, aligning with the design direction seen in the new Honda Civic introduced in the previous year. Its length has slightly increased on a similar wheelbase, resulting in similar passenger cabin volume with slight enhancements in cargo space. Inside, incremental improvements are apparent, further enhancing the already impressive 2023 model.
