It looks like the new Accord, Civic and CR-V just recently earned 2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards. These three models were found to have the highest residual value after fiver years of ownership of any vehicle within their respective categories. Winners were chosen based on two major factors: their market value over the first 5 months and the average projected 5 year deprecation based upon the first 12 months after the launch of each model. Just one more reason to go Honda.

Honda is on a roll these past few years starting with the 10th gen civic and snowballing from there. The designs are phenomenal and so is the performance for what you're paying. Good to know that whatever you get on that list, the depreciation is going to be around average if not better.

The real test with the Accord will be how it sells 2-3 years down the road because already things are starting to take a downturn. Honda might have to do a model refresh sooner than usually, similar to what happened to the 9th Civic. Turns out they saved it.

Heard the Camry is the Accords' main rival and that model is killing it, stealing away customers from Honda. Maybe that's why sales are so slow.
A mid-cycle refresh may need too take place if Honda wants to increase sales. Even though I think the new Accord looks great, it could be a repeat of the 9th gen Civic.

Honda doesn't do fleet sales!

Honda will always trail the Camry when you factor in Camry's fleet sales to the total number of units sold. Honda does not participate in fleet sales. When you subtract Toyota's fleet sales the total number of units sold is actually pretty comparable. There's an excellent comparison YouTube review of the Accord and Camry on the Redline Channel. The Accord won the comparison according to that particular reviewer.
