All of this adds up to an Accord family—sedan, coupe, and hybrid—that's an improvement on the 2005 edition: smoother, quieter, and more comfortable. Add that to the qualities that have always distinguished Accords, such as excellent road manners, first-rate ergonomics, exemplary reliability, quality construction, high resale values, and a strong element of fun-to-drive, and you have a powerful case for calling this the best family-sedan lineup in the business.
