Why doesn't Honda sell the Accord anymore?

If the Honda Accord is such a good car, how come Honda has stopped selling them in the UK?

Answered by Andrew Brady
UK consumers are buying fewer and fewer cars like the Accord, Avensis, Mondeo and Insignia as everyone wants an SUV instead. If people do want a car of that size/shape, they'd usually prefer something premium like a BMW 3 Series. The new Honda Civic saloon is much bigger than previous Civics and essentially replaces the Accord in the Honda range.
