When Motor City makes a proclamation about a motor vehicle, consumers should take note. This year, the 2018 Honda Accord has been named the Detroit Free Press Car of the Year.

Detroit Free Press Car of the Year

Despite the fact that many new car buyers are opting for crossovers, SUVs, and trucks over traditional cars, the Honda Accord has maintained strong sales numbers for over 40 years thanks to its well-known reliability, fresh styling, and overall high quality. This tenth generation of the Honda Accord model features a sleeker exterior aesthetic, a more spacious cabin for front and rear seats, the biggest trunk in its segment. Plus, it comes with a 192-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter engine, a first for the Accord model line.

The winner of the Detroit Free Press Car of the Year award is determined after automotive experts thoroughly assess mainstream vehicles in seven categories: value, innovation, design, technology, safety, capability, and efficiency. The judging process is rigorous, but that did not stop the Honda Accord from scoring the top spot.
