3. Honda Accord

Totally redesigned for this year, the Honda Accord earns a high position in our midsize car rankings. The sporty Accord is spacious and comfortable. It also receives top safety scores for its combination of crashworthiness and available safety features. Fuel efficiency is another of the Accord’s strengths, yet it remains peppy and fun to drive.

A 7-inch display, Siri Eyes Free, a rearview camera, and the Honda Sensing active safety package all come standard.

Considering the Accord’s many practical attributes, it should be no surprise that it was a finalist for our 2018 Best Midsize Car for Families award.
