The beloved Honda Accord rolled into dealerships last week for the 2019 model year — and straight to the top of our weekly list of most popular car-news stories. The Accord was joined for the ride by brand brethren the 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback and that model’s high-performance Type R variant; both Civics hit dealerships just a few days after the Accord.

The nation’s car buyers may be abandoning sedans like snowbirds fleeing the Northeast and Midwest for warmer climes right now, but the Accord remains a perennial top seller.
