History of Honda Accord at Pacific Honda

As a perennial favorite among our loyal San Diego customers at Pacific Honda, the 2016 Honda Accord is a versatile vehicle that’s been delighting owners for decades. Available in a variety of body styles, including the popular sedan model, the Honda Accord sets the gold standard for reliability and style. Redesigned for 2016, the new Honda Accord continues to evolve with several innovative additions to the inventory of new Honda vehicles, including the 2016 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2016 Honda Accord plugin.

The dependable Honda Accord initially launched in Japan in 1976 as a three-door hatchback vehicle. After being hailed for its spacious cabin and excellent fuel economy, it was introduced to U.S. drivers the following year as a four-door sedan and received an exceedingly warm welcome. In addition to its stellar performance, the first-generation Honda Accord was one of the only vehicles of its time to include cloth seats, a tachometer and an AM/FM radio as standard features. Beginning in 1982, production of the Honda Accord moved to a facility within the United States, making it the first Japanese vehicle to be built stateside. Subsequent generations have included a number of modifications to both the Accord’s body style and interior design, and the vehicle’s first Hybrid edition was released in 2005. If that’s not enough, over the course of its long run of form, the Accord has been named one of the 10 Best Cars of the Year by Car and Driver magazine more than 30 times!

If you’re considering the 2016 Honda Accord, you can look forward to getting your hands on the latest iteration of a great legacy of performance and durability, as well as some slick new features. For 2016, the Accord includes brilliant LED fog lights, stunning 19-inch alloy wheels and a tech-infused interior cabin that’s sure to win over gadget lovers. The refined cabin includes an easy-to-use 7-inch touchscreen display that allows drivers to adjust vehicle settings with the swipe of a finger when connected to a compatible smartphone. Moreover, practical features like the vehicle’s multi-view rearview camera and 60/40 split seats help make the Honda Accord both practical and safe. In fact, this year’s Honda Accord was a 2016 IHSA top safety pick.

Though the 2016 Honda Accord is a long way away from the unique three-door hatchback that thrilled U.S. drivers more than 30 years ago, it’s got even more to offer car shoppers, especially those who want a vehicle that’s stylish, efficient and built to last over the long haul.
