The 2018 Honda Accord has been named the Overall Best Buy of 2018 by Kelley Blue Book–and for good reason. In fact, the new Accord also earns the top slot in KBB’s Midsize Car of the Year list, which is just the second of seven total wins for Honda! Sweeping the KBB award season with style, Honda is making its case for being the best auto brand in the country, if not the world. Here’s how Honda fared.
