      My wife has a bad back and was tired of feeling each of the bumps in our deteriorating neighborhood roads. So after seeing the cozy TV commercials and reading "Consumer Reports"'s top rating of the car for ride quality, she decided on the Subaru Legacy 2019. It's a fully appointed car with a suit-case full of manuals, instructions, how-to's for operating all of the "automatic" features of the car. Fine. I'll leave it to the next guy to figure out how to set the cruse control and use the pieces of plastic inside the steering wheel (like swizzle sticks except for the lack of a candied cherry on each). The problem: the ride quality! If this feature distinguishes it from the competition (as CR claims), I can only conclude that the other cars rated by the publication come without shock absorbers and springs! And with the hard leather seats (feeling like plastic) the car registers and transmits each bump and irregular surface detail to the driver and passenger to a more irritating degree than her '07 Mazda 6, which she handed down to me.  

      Who's at fault? Her Subaru? CR's car ratings? Our expectations of what a car can do (no better than my dad's big Mercury from the 1960s?).? What car can offer an improved ride, absorbing the bumps that make the prospect of a long trip in a Subaru Legacy seem tiresome and boring (at best), onerous and even painful (at worst)?

      I think the design is sophisticated and elegant.

      The rear taillights could use a refresh but the front is top notch, love the Acura style headlights and the mean look on it.

      Just sold my 2014 accord. They ride like go-carts, and the seats are really uncomfortable. Glad to be rid of it.

      Yeah, too bad Honda made the new ones fucking ugly as Hell.

      2013-2018 are the best looking accords ever, especially with the full body package.

      Honestly, who in the Hell looked at the finished product and said "Okay, that'll have to do, I guess."?

      That rear end is as ugly as the front end of the 2012 Civic. The first time I saw that car was at a traffic light. It looked cool as Hell from the rear, until the car turned and I got a look at the front.

      I almost threw up and I had to call the suicide prevention hotline.

      Seriously though, I'd take a smart car over the new Accords. Honda, you need to fire your design engineers.

      Agree. That is most likely going to be my choice as well. The Mazda6 or Genesis G70.... both are waaaaaaay better looking than the Accord. Not sure what Honda is thinking with the front end of this car. Ugh.

      Usually I get real cheap car rentals so I can see what you mean. It really is an awesome Accord.

      It is the North America award winning car for 2018. Also value for money it can’t be beat.

      I liked the video format for this presentation. The Accord is really a great All-rounder, except for the looks which seems to be polarizing. The 2.0T +Manual Sport is an awesome sedan!
