For nearly a half a century the Honda Accord has set the standard for all other midsize four-door sedans to follow. So it comes as no surprise that the new 2017 Honda Accord for sale near Phoenix at your Valley Honda Dealers recently garnered Car And Driver Magazine’s prestigious “10Best Award” for a record 31 times. In fact, the publication ranks the Accord #1 in family sedans, ahead of the Mazda6, Chevy Malibu, Toyota Camry, Kia Optima, and Hyundai Sonata.

With one look, it’s easy to see why the new 2017 Honda Accord continues to smash sales records as America’s most popular family four-door sedan. The Accord is more beautiful than ever, owning the highway with a distinctive style that is sporty, sophisticated, and singular.

The Accord’s brilliant design is illuminated by a string of available jewel-like LED headlights and daytime running lights that give it an upscale, “Acura-like” appearance. Creases along the contoured aluminum hood slope inward at an angle, meeting at the bold chrome grille, proudly wearing the Honda “H” badge. The muscular lower fascia is framed by two available horizontal LED fog lights. The Accord’s eye-catching profile features a coupe-inspired roofline, available five-spoke sport alloy wheels, and chrome door handles set inside oval recesses.

The Accord’s rear stance is stylish and sporty, with an integrated decklid spoiler, dramatic new horizontal LED taillights, and available chrome-tipped exhausts. Additional chrome accents artfully frame the window sills and grace the lower rear bumper and rear deck lid. The overall effect is sophisticated, contemporary, aerodynamic, and sporty.

Honda also takes the art of automotive interior design to new levels of quality and comfort. The design maximizes space and outward visibility, with ample leg and headroom for both front and rear passengers. Swathed in available leather, the supportive front seats feature available 10-way power adjustment with two memory presets.

Everywhere you look, the 2017 Accord’s cabin oozes with style. Wood and chrome accents, along with soft-touch materials, give the interior a rich and substantial feel. Honda has also crafted an interior space where everything fits just right. From the available leather-wrapped sport steering wheel and sport gauge cluster to the chrome and piano black-accented center console with large storage bin and oversized cup holders, everything about the Accord’s cockpit is designed with your convenience in mind.

You’ll also appreciate not having to take your keys out of your pocket with the available keyless remote with push-button start/stop feature. And everyone will find their perfect comfort zone thanks to the Accord’s Dual Zone Climate Control. When you add the available HomeLink® to your Honda package, you’ll be able to control up to three remote devices around your home, such as your garage door, security system, or lighting, with the touch of a button.

The Ultimate In Convenience.

The 2017 Honda Accord is a multi-talented high-tech artist. Honda demonstrates its forward-thinking innovation with an array of advanced features and functions designed for convenience and to enhance your driving pleasure.

The Accord literally puts you in the lap of luxury with an accommodating interior featuring available 10-way power adjustable seats, optional heated rear leather seats, premium wood-grain accents, and top quality materials. You’ll also be impressed with the high degree of craftsmanship throughout the Accord’s roomy and quiet cabin. In fact, you may even think you’re driving an ultra-lux sedan costing thousands more.

We all know that the summer heat is brutal here in the Valley. But with the available Remote Engine Start feature, just push a button on your intelligent key fob to start the engine and begin cooling down the cabin before you get inside.

A Talent For Tech.

This superbly crafted sedan also puts on quite a show when it comes to keeping you entertained, informed, and connected. In fact, you won’t skip a high-tech beat from your home to your car thanks to available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration. Just plug your compatible smartphone into the handy USB port and access your favorite apps and functions on the large 7-inch Display Audio Touchscreen.

And, thanks to HondaLink®, a Honda exclusive, you can download app from either the Apple Store or Google Play that allows you to stream music, access social media, and even schedule service appointments. Use Bluetooth® to send and receive calls with a touch of a button on the steering wheel. Or wirelessly stream your personal playlists so you can enjoy your favorite music through the available 360-watt, 7-speaker Premium Audio System with Subwoofer.

The Pinnacle Of Performance.

What sets the Accord apart from the crowd is how it outperforms and outhandles many of its rivals. Built for performance and fuel efficiency, the Accord’s standard Earth Dreams i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine delivers 185 horsepower via either a snappy 6-speed manual transmission or silky smooth continuously variable transmission (CVT) with G-Design Shift technology. You’ll also be impressed with the Accord’s thrifty nature. The CVT-equipped, 4-cylinder gets up to an EPA-estimated* 36 mpg highway/27 mpg city.

Kick your driving fun up a notch with the Accord Sport Special Edition model. It features handsome 19-inch alloy wheels, race-inspired drilled pedals, an exclusive “San Marino Red” exterior paint option, sport interior with red contrast stitching and paddle shifters, a sprightlier 189-hp engine, and sport-tuned suspension.

But if you really want to get out ahead of the pack, or for effortless merging, passing, and highway cruising, then you’ll want to step up to the Accord’s powerful Earth Dreams i-VTEC V6 that puts a potent 278 horsepower at your disposal. The V6 also achieves excellent fuel economy, too, thanks to a cylinder-deactivation feature that shuts off two of the six cylinders when you don’t need them.

Confident Handling.

This is also one four-door family sedan you’ll want to take for long drives that have lots of twists and turns so you can show off the Accord’s confident handling prowess. Honda’s new MacPherson strut suspension creates the perfect balance between a smooth, comfortable ride with just the right amount of taut, nimble handling. Honda also dialed in the Accord’s electric power steering for the proper weight and feel that calls “…one of the more confidence-inspiring setups for those who like to drive.”

Innovative Safety.

Safety innovation runs deep at Honda. In fact, Honda was one of the first automakers to offer a rear backup camera with guidelines as standard equipment.

As a world leader in automotive safety, Honda takes its groundbreaking safety technology to new levels in the 2017 Accord. So it’s no surprise that calls the Accord “…among the safest midsize cars in its segment.”

Honda’s exclusive “Honda Sensing™” suite of advanced safety features play a significant role in earning the Accord top safety ratings from the IIHS and the NHTSA. This available system combines several key technologies designed to alert you to potential road hazards, as well as automatically react to certain adverse situations. Lane-Keep Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward-Collision Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking, and Road Departure Mitigation work together to keep you and your passengers safe no matter where the road may lead.

America’s Best-Seller.

We trust that by now you’ll better understand why, after 40 years as America’s best-seller in this competitive segment, the 2017 Honda Accord continues to dominate the midsize family sedan market. And because it’s a Honda, you’ll also appreciate driving one of the most dependable and reliable cars on the road today. According to a recent IHS-Polk automotive survey, 78% of all Hondas built within the past 25 years are still on the road today.
