Honda first unveiled the Accord in 1976 after the success of the smaller Civic convinced the company to soldier on as an automobile manufacturer following a string of product flops. The company chose the name "Accord" to reflect "Honda's desire for accord and harmony between people, society and the automobile," and sales quickly climbed, as Americans embraced its practicality, fuel efficiency and reliability. Honda gave its flagship midsize sedan a pretty dramatic redesign for 2018, canceling the coupe version, giving it a larger interior, widening and lowering the car, moving to an all-turbocharged four-cylinder engine lineup and adopting the Civic's more athletic quasi-fastback styling. The Accord is offered in five trim levels — LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Touring — and the Sport models are available with a six-speed manual transmission for those who like to drive stick. An Accord Hybrid is also now available, though we'll mostly focus on the regular versions of the sedan. Use this buyer's guide to help you make an educated decision about whether to buy the 2018 Honda Accord. We'll include safety and reliability ratings, engine specs and horsepower, fuel-economy ratings and pricing. We'll also summarize Autoblog's professional review of the 2018 Accord.

IIHS gives the 2018 Accord "good" ratings on all of its crashworthiness metrics and a "superior" rating for front crash avoidance and mitigation.
