1989 Honda Accord

The 1989 Honda Accord was the last of that generation. Borrowing an idea from the previous generation, Honda said goodbye to the third generation Accord by offering a luxurious special edition. Otherwise, the Accord stayed mostly the same.

The 1989 Accord came in several varieties, including the DX, the LX, the LX-I and the SE-I. The DX and LX were available as a sedan, coupe, or wagon, and the SE-I was a coupe only. The DX was the base model, while upgrading to the LX gets power windows and doors, while the loaded LX-I gets a bigger engine. The special edition SE-I was luxuriously equipped, with leather seats, a Bose sound system, and alloy wheels. The base engine was a 2.0-liter 98 horsepower four cylinder, while the LX-I and SE-I came with a 2.0-liter, 120 horsepower four cylinder.

The 1989 Honda Accord is beloved for its reliability, good looks, comfort, and practicality. They have excellent reputations as solid, durable cars. Some drivers do find them to be on the small side for a family, and others grumble about the lack of cup holders.
