Eight generations ago the Accord was Honda’s biggest car but no one foresaw it as a large car. Enter the all-new 2008 Honda Accord, a mid-size sedan that’s grown enough to move into the EPA’s Large Car segment. Introduced at the same time, is an all-new, two-door Honda Accord coupe.
The all-new, 2008 Honda Accord continues refinement and adds more power, room, safety, and features-to-cost value. Content and engines determine the model designator, though all have the same roomy, functional cabins, array of safety equipment, and driving characteristics.
For 2008, the Accord is available with a choice of four-cylinder and V6 engines, two transmissions, and LX and EX trim levels. Further subsets include a new premium package that adds more convenience bits to an LX, and EX-L models that add leather and luxury features.
