The reason why the Honda Accord has been shining for so long, try it at Longueuil Honda near Boucherville and Brossard

It’s a very good sign when a vehicle has been on the market for many years, and the Honda Accord has stood the test of time. It was launched in May 1976 and has undergone a huge transformation, winning numerous awards and recording record sales.

The Longueuil Honda Dealer on the South Shore, just minutes from Montreal, has been contributing to the success of the brand and its Accord model for many years. In fact, Longueuil Honda is also recognized for its longevity and experience.

The Honda Accord through the Years

When the Japanese manufacturer decided to launch a compact sedan in 1976, they planned to have the model evolve over time. Based on the Honda Civic's platform, the Japanese auto maker quickly became successful with its first-generation Accord (1976-1981) due to its moderate size and high fuel economy. Initially a three-door sedan, the Accord quickly became a four-door sedan and made its debut in more elaborate versions, such as the SE Accord, as well as the LX and hatchback versions.

With its second generation (1981-1985), the Honda Accord made a triumphant debut in the United States, where the Japanese manufacturer decided to build the SE, LX and hatchback versions on American soil in Marysville (Ohio). Over the next 15 years, the Honda Accord would become the best-selling imported model in the United States and the Japanese car maker would have improved the interior and exterior of its vehicles, with velvet seats, air conditioning, cruise control, power steering, injection engine and much more. These years allowed the Japanese manufacturer to gain serious market share outside of the Country of the Rising Sun.

The third generation ran from June 1985 to 1989 and this era was marked by the Accord’s new design, with its hidden headlights and the expansion of powertrain options for the Japanese, European and North American markets. The vehicle's finishings had been significantly improved with the introduction of heated mirrors, a sunroof, cruise and temperature control, as well as heated seats and headlamp wipers. A coupe prototype would later replace the more practical and user-friendly hatchback version.

The fourth generation (1989-1993) was marked by the discontinuation of the 3-door sedan on the international market and the arrival of a more intermediate sedan. This period is also marked by significant technical changes as the 2.2-litre, 16-valve aluminum engine replaced the previous 2.0-litre 12-valve model, an improvement that would give the sedan more performance and power. In Canada, the LX, EX and EX-R versions were launched and the Japanese manufacturer also developed new passive safety features during this period of time.

The fifth generation ran from 1994 to 1997 and with new opportunities opened up for the Japanese manufacturer. The model was particularly successful in Australia and New Zealand, not to mention the production of different versions for the European (Honda Rover 600) and North American markets.

The sixth and seventh generations, which ran from 1997 to 2007, were mainly marked by a split of the Accord models for the European, Japanese and American markets and the development of an Honda Accord model for Europe, Japan and North America. But what is most remarkable about these two periods are the safety awards won by the Honda Accord through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which gave it the top spot for five consecutive years.

The eighth generation (2007-2012) marked the model’s extension to China’s market of more than a billion people, which had long been coveted by the Japanese. The Honda Accord made a triumphant entry into China and is still selling like hot cakes.

From 2012 to 2017, the Japanese manufacturer introduced the Accord Coupe and redefined the sedan, and during the same period Honda exported its model to China, Africa and the Middle East.

With the tenth generation introduced in 2018, the Honda Accord is now equipped with advanced technological features, such as Honda Sensing, power moonroof, and chrome finishes that restore elegance to the vehicle. With its 2.0-litre turbocharged VTEC four-cylinder engine, 10-speed all-wheel drive transmission and innovative features, the 2019 Honda Accord is more beautiful, powerful, efficient and comfortable than ever. It takes you where you want to go, and with this mid-size sedan you can now travel long distances to explore Quebec, Canada and the United States in luxury, comfort and ample space.
