Honda introduced the Civic to the United States in 1973 as a fuel-efficient alternative to the large gas guzzling domestic vehicles manufactured by Ford and GM. The Civic quickly gained popularity with its 50-horsepower engine and 1500-pound body.
Honda introduced the Accord in 1976. It premiered as a larger, more powerful option to the Civic and maintained the fuel efficiency and reliability consumers had come to expect from Honda.
