How is This Award Decided?

Over a 12-month period, experts from the Good Housekeeping Institute and Car and Driver screen hundreds of 2019 cars to decide which one they want to give the title of Best New Car to. They thoroughly assess different categories, such as value, safety, handling, reliability, interior, technology, and comfort. Then, they narrow down their top choices to select one car in 10 different classes.

In 2019, the 2019 Honda Accord was named the Best New Car in the sedan category by Good Housekeeping.1 While there are many different reasons why the Accord was given this distinction, two of the major reasons are its safety technology and superior engine options.

Why Did The 2019 Honda Accord Win?

Some of the factors that came into play when considering if this sedan deserved the title of Best New Car are its available features, such as the Head-Up Display, and roomy interior that provides up to 105.6 cubic feet of passenger space. However, the Accord truly stands apart from the crowd when it comes the safety systems and refined performance options.

Smooth yet Powerful Performance

The 2019 Honda Accord has two different engine selections, with the standard 1.5L in-line 4-cylinder with a turbocharger generating an impressive 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the available 2.0L engine packs a bigger punch by achieving up to 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. With two engine options clearly equipped to provide smooth and quick accelerations on the highway, it's no wonder the Accord shown through in its class.

Safety Comes First

The Accord places safety as its top priority with Honda Sensing® coming standard on all models. With this suite of advanced safety features, you'll have:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
