While the Honda Accord does happen to be a superb vehicle to own, sales of the flagship vehicle have been falling ever since the start of 2016. One of the reasons is that most people have been going for the 10th generation of the Honda Civic instead of the Accord.
The Honda Civic is more economical, its lighter and it offers up good performance. It’s also almost as big as the Accord too and this is one of the main reasons why the Civic is chosen over the Accord.
The Honda Accord needs a big upgrade if it is to take the title of being a special midsized car again. Now we are hearing that this may happen as the Accord could come with SH-AWD.
This is the same drivetrain that Acura use on their vehicles and it could mean that the Accord is dropping SH-AWD on the Acura. Should the Honda Accord offer up the SH-AWD it would offer up a driving character that is unique and this would be something that the Civic wouldn’t be able to copy.
