1979 Honda Accord: First Accord Sedan
The Accord first debuted in 1976, and was only available as a two-door hatchback. For the 1979 model year, the Accord grew two more doors and took on the Toyota Corona and the Mazda 626 sedans. The vehicle used the same platform, but was nearly 9 inches longer than the two-door hatchback, proving to be more family friendly. The sedan was clearly a popular addition to the range since a two-door hatchback Accord isn’t in production.
