Honda recently hit an impressive milestone. The 2022 Honda Accord was been named a 2022 Car and Driver 10Best pick, marking the 36th time the Accord has made the prestigious list. This title makes the Honda Accord the most awarded vehicle in Car and Driver 10Best history by a wide margin.
“Year after year we find ourselves recommending the Honda Accord to friends and family looking for a fun-to-drive, safe and fuel-efficient sedan,” said Eddie Alterman, Chief Brand Officer of Car and Driver. “Refined, dynamically engaging and affordable, the 2022 Honda Accord is the benchmark of the midsize sedan class.
