2018 Honda Accord Named ‘Best New Car’ by Good Housekeeping
The all-new 2018 Honda Accord has taken the streets by storm, garnering attention and praise from many different critics and writers. This list now includes Good Housekeeping, which recently named the new Accord its Best New Car* for the sedan category in 2018! The winners, which also included the 2018 Honda Odyssey, appeared in this month’s issue of Good Housekeeping. Here are just a few of the things people are loving about the all-new Accord!
This 2018 Honda Accord marks the 10th generation of the familiar midsize sedan. The Accord was reimagined for this release, raising the bar for premium style, safety, and performance. Good Housekeeping especially noted the Accord’s roomy interior and large trunk. During its reimagining, Honda engineers made sure that this midsize sedan feels luxuriously large inside. You’ll be amazed at the legroom and cargo space you find in the new Accord, especially when you find it’s still easy to parallel park! The Accord is the perfect size for navigating tight urban streets or merging easily in traffic, yet it still feels amazingly spacious inside.
Good Housekeeping also took note of the Accord’s above-average standard safety features. For the first time, the 2018 Honda Accord provides the Honda Sensing comprehensive safety suite as standard equipment on every trim level. This set of active safety and driver-assist features gives you a suite of intelligent technology to help keep you safe on the road. The Road Departure Mitigation System and Lane Keeping Assist System help you avoid accidents by helping you stay in your lane and on the road. There’s also Collision Mitigation Braking System, to help lessen an impact or avoid it altogether. To make your drive easier, it also includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow for the open roads or even light traffic. Finally, 2018 Honda Accord models also include Traffic Sign Recognition, a new feature to help you stay alert and aware of your surroundings.
In the “Standout Features” section of their test, Good Housekeeping testers particularly like the location and setup of Honda’s new infotainment center. The 2018 Honda Accord benefits from the new-and-improved system, which includes both a full-color LCD touchscreen and traditional manual controls. Testers also noted that the Accord’s system is located a little higher on the dashboard than other cars. It’s helpful especially for drivers who need to glance at the available built-in navigation without turning your head away from the road. Honda’s state-of-the-art Satellite-Linked Navigation System includes 3D renderings of terrain, buildings, and road signs, as well as lane guidance and live search functions. It also offers HD Digital Traffic and simplified voice recognition, as well as other handy features. It’s available on the EX-L trim, and comes standard on the 2018 Honda Accord Touring.
In choosing the Best New Car Awards, Good Housekeeping Institute works with experts at Car & Driver magazine. Their assessments cover hundreds of new vehicles, and they focus on things that drivers care about most. Using their research data, Good Housekeeping Institute evaluates the value, safety, performance, reliability, handling, interior design, comfort, and technology that new cars have to offer. Experts at Good Housekeeping put the cars through their paces, too. They test-drive the year’s vehicles on over 3,000 miles of track and open roads to make sure their assessments are good! Their final say on the 2018 Honda Accord? “LAB LOWDOWN: You won’t find a better ride at this price.”
