Plush, capable, well-built and reliable
Lacks a little of the original Accord's appeal

Introduction

The second generation Honda Accord was a simple and very effective facelift and upscale of the original car. As part of the upgrade, the engine range was expanded to include a 1.8-litre, which gave the heavier car a some much needed muscle, especially in automatic form. As before, the Accord was offered as a four-door saloon and three-door fastback.

The 1981 Accord represented a number of firsts for Honda - most notably, it was the company's first car to built in the USA; and it sported Honda's innovative  PGM-FI engine management system. EX models offered the ultimate luxury package, with toys including electric sunroof and air conditioning. Still readily available on the classic car market, and unlike similar cars from Nissan and Toyota, they've yet to find a significant following.
