|Honda Accord: A look back
The eighth-generation Accord grew bigger in every dimension. With an interior volume of 120 cubic feet, the 2008 Accord moved from a mid-sized sedan to a large sedan based on EPA classifications. An available 3.5-liter V-6 engine produced 268 horsepower -- the most ever in an Accord. The 2008 Accord was a finalist for North American Car of the Year, but lost to the Chevrolet Malibu.
