Seiji Kuraishi, Honda's chief operating officer, said: "Basically, we have been trying not to get caught up in a price-cutting race." The Accord, which was long one of the nation's best-selling nameplates, has quickly lost ground, notwithstanding great reviews for the most current version of the sedan, build for the 2018 model-year. The demand was off 3.1% in July and has descended 5.9% for the current year. In contrast, Honda's popular CR-V crossover grew by 2.5% in sales last month.
