Honda Accord Reviews
Honda Accord Efficiency
The Accord has three engine options, all of which offer great fuel efficiency.
First, are the two turbocharged options. The standard 1.5L VTEC® In-Line 4-Cylinder engine produces up to 192 horsepower. When equipped with the Continuously Variable Transmission, too, the sedan can get an EPA-estimated 30 MPG city and 38 MPG highway in both the LX and EX-L trim levels.1
You can up the power output with the available 2.0L engine, which cranks out an improved 252 horsepower. You can also outfit the Honda Accord with a hybrid engine to really get impressive efficiency.
The 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is paired with a high-voltage battery when choosing the available hybrid configuration and features an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission. This model gets an EPA-estimated 48 MPG city and 48 MPG highway with the Hybrid, Hybrid EX, and Hybrid EX-L trim levels.1
Smooth and Controlled Handling
Along with its efficient powertrain options, the Accord also gives you great handling for smooth and controlled driving. An adaptive damper system can adjust the suspension as you drive to keep you steadily moving along for a comfortable driving experience.
With a curb-to-curb turning diameter of 38.1 feet, you can also make tight turns out of parking spots and U-turns with the Accord. The dual-pinion, variable-ratio electric power steering system will also provide responsive and spirited steering, whether you are making micro adjustments as you cruise along the highways or navigate your way around swerving back roads.
To enjoy an even sportier ride, you can also get the available paddle shifters. With these, you will be able to control the shift points of the transmission, which gives you the control over engine power you want when looking to swiftly pass another car on the highway.
Premium Interior in the Accord
The Honda Accord offers seating for five and has plenty of wiggle room with a passenger volume of 105.6 cubic feet. On top of that, there’s 39.5 inches of headroom in the front and 37.3 inches in the rear.

There are also available leather seats you can choose to have inside this sedan. Available sport pedals add a bold, athletic sense of style to the Honda Accord interior.
More Convenient Tech
The Accord also features additional technologies that add more personal convenience to your everyday commute. The available Head-Up Display will keep you aware of your speed, the exit you need to take, and who is calling all without having to take your eyes off the road. That is because it will display all of this plus other vital driving information right in front of you and the windshield.
