The sedan marketplace in North American has routinely been a strong suit for the Honda brand. For nearly four full decades, the Honda Accord stands as the vanguard in the battle for the mid-sized family sedan crowd. Built on a reputation of quality and value, the Honda Accord has offered a four-cylinder or six-cylinder engine choice since the 1990s. Within the compact sedan segment, the Honda Civic has proven to be a benchmark for economy and efficiency wrapped into an affordable vehicle. Hybrid versions of both the Accord and Civic have been offered along with a plug-in hybrid version of the former mentioned model. For several years, Honda also sold an exclusive gasoline/electric hybrid called the Insight as a sedan-like, five-door hatchback.
