Five-year cost to own: $32,528. The midsize Honda Accord sedan has long been a standout for its overall performance, interior comfort, and well-earned reputation for reliability. It holds onto its value well over time, being expected to lose only around 40% of its original cost after five years. It was nicely redesigned for 2018, and while the Accord’s sales have been slipping concurrent with the meteoric rise of CUVs, it remains a solid choice for sedan stalwarts.
