For many buyers, midsize sedans are the perfect family vehicle. Although they may not be the sportiest or most stylish vehicles on the road, they comfortably seat up to five people and generally get better gas mileage than SUVs. The Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry are two the the bestselling models in the class. As brands, Honda and Toyota are well-known for producing vehicles that last a long time, so Accord and Camry buyers will likely get an excellent value for their dollar.

For many years after that, it held the title of being the bestselling Japanese car in the U.S. The Accord is now in its ninth generation has been sold as a sedan, coupe, wagon and hatchback. In 2013, Honda debuted a Hybrid version of the Accord.
