Honda Accord Model Review

The Honda Accord is a top-selling family sedan known for its high quality, reliability and safety ratings. The current Accord was redesigned for the 2018 model year, with recent models costing between $17,795 to $27,792.

Honda Accord Pros

  • Excellent quality, reliability and value
  • Sublime blend of ride comfort and driver engagement
  • Consistently high safety ratings
Honda Accord Cons
  • Ride quality may be too firm for some
  • Wind and road noise higher than some competitors
  • Volume buttons instead of a knob (depending on year)

Is the Honda Accord a Good Car?

The Honda Accord is among the best midsize family sedans you can buy. This is reflected in the Accord’s reduced ownership costs and high resale value. It’s been a consistent leader in design, quality, fuel efficiency and safety, and it boasts a near-perfect balance between comfortable ride quality and engaging driving dynamics.

Which Honda Accord is Right for Me?

The Honda Accord is available in a variety of trims, ranging from the base LX model to the sporty (and appropriately named) Sport model, to the premium EX and Touring versions. There’s also an Accord Hybrid for shoppers seeking maximum fuel efficiency. Even the base Accord LX comes well equipped, while the top-of-the-line EX-L and Touring models include luxury amenities like leather seating, a sunroof, heated seats, and an upgraded audio system. Shoppers looking for a balance of value and features should consider the Sport or EX trims.

Does the Honda Accord have AWD?

The Honda Accord has never offered all-wheel drive. The Accord offers standard traction and stability control, making it fairly capable and confident on slippery surfaces, but not ideal for deep snow or off-pavement driving.

How Much Horsepower Does the Honda Accord Have?

The current Honda Accord offers either 192 horsepower from its 1.5-liter turbocharged engine or 252 horsepower from its 2.0-liter, turbocharged engine, both of them four-cylinders. Past Honda Accords have featured four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines with horsepower ratings ranging from 177 horsepower to 278 horsepower.

What Year Honda Accord is Best?

The Honda Accord has been a consistently safe, reliable and fuel-efficient midsize family sedan for decades, with no specific year offering a substantial advantage over other years. However, standard safety technology and driver-assist tech like radar cruise control, lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking appeared on the Accord during the 2018 redesign. Fans of the V6 engine will want to consider the 2013-2017 Honda Accord, as the V6 was dropped in 2018.

When Will the Honda Accord Be Redesigned?

Honda Accords are typically redesigned every 5 model years, which means the next Honda Accord redesign is due for the 2023 model year.

How Much can a Honda Accord Tow?

Honda Accords are not primarily meant to tow things, but if a proper tow hitch is attached to an Accord it might be able to tow between 500 and 1,000 pounds, depending on the year and engine power. Always check your owner’s manual or with your local dealer to determine an Accord’s tow capacity.

Current Honda Accord – 2018-Present:

The full redesign of the 2018 Honda Accord included an all-new body with a sleeker roofline and more aggressive front-end styling. The Accord coupe was dropped as part of this redesign, as was the V6 engine.

Two turbocharged four-cylinder engines, a base 1.5-liter offering 192 horsepower and an available 2.0-liter with 252 horsepower, provide motivation. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is paired with the 1.5-liter engine, helping it achieve 33 mpg, while a traditional 10-speed automatic is connected to the 2.0-liter and delivers 27 mpg. For enthusiast drivers, Honda offered a six-speed manual transmission in the Accord with either engine, a rare option in modern family sedans and (sadly) one that was dropped for the 2021 model year. An Accord Hybrid, providing 212 horsepower and 48 mpg, widens the Accord’s appeal to eco-conscious shoppers looking to cut their fuel bill.

Trim levels start at the base Accord LX, with LED headlights and taillights, 17-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control, push-button start and the aforementioned 1.5-liter engine. Standard safety equipment includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning with intervention. The Accord Sport adds a power driver’s seat, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 19-inch wheels, a rear spoiler and an upgraded audio system. The Accord EX provides heated exterior mirrors, a sunroof, heated front seats and keyless entry, while the EX-L adds driver-seat memory settings, a power passenger seat, leather upholstery and a 10-speaker audio system. Finally, the top-of-the-line Accord Touring adds a head-up display, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, front and rear parking sensors, a Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless phone charging and adjustable multiple driving modes leveraging advanced suspension dampers. The Honda Accord Hybrid combines a 2.0-liter, Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine with two electric motors to deliver 47 mpg. The Accord hybrid was offered in base, EX, EX-L and Touring trims.

Honda Accord – 2013-2017:

A complete redesign of the 2013 Honda Accord included a slightly smaller body, but with a slightly more interior space. Offered in sedan and coupe form, the new Accord’s styling didn’t change much from the previous version.

The base 2.4-liter drivetrain received new direct-injection technology, which paired with the Accord’s first continuously variable transmission (CVT) to improve both performance and fuel efficiency. With 185 horsepower (189 in Sport models) this Accord offered strong acceleration, and a combined 30 mpg fuel rating (29 in Sport models) was a 10 percent jump over the previous Accord. A six-speed manual was also offered with this drivetrain, though combined mileage dropped to 28 mpg. The optional 3.5-liter V6 egnine, producing 278 horsepower, was paired with either a six-speed automatic (available on EX and above sedans) or a six-speed manual (but only on the coupe). This was the last version of the Accord to offer a V6 and manual transmission combination. Fuel efficiency ratings for the V6 dropped to 25 mpg with the automatic, or 22 mpg for the six-speed manual coupe. The Accord Hybrid used a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine combined with an electric motor to provide 196 horsepower and 47 mpg.

The Honda Accord’s familiar LX trim was the base model, with standard equipment that included 16-inch wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth phone connectivity, an auxiliary audio jack, a CD player, and iPod integration through a USB port. The LX-S trim (offered only on the coupe) mirrored these standard features. A Sport trim bumped horsepower to 189 and added 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler and a power driver’s seat, along with paddle shifters when equipped with an automatic. The EX trim gave the Accord 17-inch wheels, a sunroof, heated mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, a six-speaker audio system and LaneWatch technology, including an exterior video camera that displayed the car’s blind spot in the gauge cluster. The EX-L trim added leather seats, along with a power passenger seat, a 7-speaker premium audio system, Hondalink with smartphone integration and safety technology in the form of forward-collision and lane departure warnings. EX-L with Navi added a navigation system while the top-line Accord Touring added LED headlights and adaptive cruise control. Shop for the 2013-2017 Honda Accord

Honda Accord 2008-2012:

The 2008 Honda Accord redesign resulted in the largest Accord ever, officially putting it (just barely) in the “large car” category according to EPA specifications. This Accord was offered in coupe and sedan body styles with four- and six-cylinder engines.

Two versions of the Accord’s 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, plus a larger 3.5-liter V6, gave buyers plenty of powertrain choices. The base four-cylinder produced 177 horsepower and delivered 21 city and 31 highway mpg. The upgraded 2.4-liter, offered on EX sedans and all coupes, delivered 190 horsepower and same (21/31) fuel economy. Those fuel efficiency numbers reflect the Accord’s five-speed automatic, but a five-speed manual transmission was offered with either four-cylinder engine. The V6 engine provided 268 horsepower and delivered 19 city or 29 highway mpg when paired with the five-speed auto. A six-speed manual transmission was available with the V6 engine, delivering 17 city and 25 highway mpg, but only in coupe form.

The base Honda Accord LX sedan included 16-inch steel wheels, keyless entry and a six-speaker audio system with auxiliary input and a single CD player.

Honda Accord versus the Competition

Honda Accord versus Honda Civic

While the Honda Accord and Honda Civic are both cars from the same manufacturer, they occupy different slots in Honda’s lineup. The Honda Accord is a midsize family sedan with plenty of room for four or five adults, a comfortable ride quality and a large trunk. The Honda Civic is a compact sedan with adequate space for four adults, more engaging driving dynamics and less noise insulation.

Honda Accord versus Toyota Camry

The Honda Accord and Toyota Camry are both high-quality, highly refined family sedans with excellent safety equipment and high fuel efficiency. The Camry edges the Accord on pure refinement, ride quality, and resale value, while the Accord wins on driving dynamics, interior design and exterior styling.

Honda Accord versus Mazda 6

If there’s a midsize sedan that consistently outguns even the Accord’s excellent driving dynamics, it’s the Mazda 6. The Mazda 6 also features consistently attractive exterior styling and intuitive interior controls, along with fuel efficiency on par or better than the Accord. But resale value and refinement aren’t quite at Honda’s levels.

Honda Accord versus Acura TL

The Honda Accord and Acura TL are both four-door sedans engineered and sold by American Honda. The Honda Accord is a midsize family sedan while the Acura TL is a sporty luxury sedan. Both offer roomy interiors and a refined ride, but the Acura TL has more luxurious interior materials and can be ordered with all-wheel drive. The Honda Accord is priced lower than the Acura TL, both as a new or used car when comparing similar years, miles and condition.

Honda Accord versus Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima matches the Accord on horsepower and interior space, while arguably outclassing it on style. But it’s drivetrain is not as refined as the Accord, interior materials have often lagged behind the Honda, and the Altima’s quality/reliability, while strong, isn’t up to the Accord’s level.

Honda Accord versus Hyundai Sonata

Hyundai’s Sonata has long offered excellent value, and over the last decade it’s been able to meet, or arguably beat, the Accord on styling, too. Hyundai quality and reliability has also been on the rise, as have interior material quality and safety tech, putting these two much closer in overall desirability in recent years.

Honda Accord versus Kia Optima/K5

The Kia Optima holds up well against the Accord, with exterior styling, interior design and material quality, and value-for-the-money on par (or better?) than Honda’s family sedan. The Optima doesn’t quite match the Accord in terms of drivetrain refinement, but Honda’s advantage here is minimal.

Honda Accord versus Chevrolet Malibu

The Chevrolet Malibu has improved dramatically in recent years. And while recent models have displayed quality, refinement and fuel efficiency on par with segment benchmarks, like the Accord, the Malibu’s longstanding reputation of struggling in these areas always hurt its resale value, giving the Accord the advantage in ownership costs.

Honda Accord versus Ford Fusion

The Ford Fusion’s exterior styling and driving dynamics are where it holds its own against the Honda Accord. In the areas of refinement, quality and longevity the Fusion can’t live up to the Accord’s high standards, as reflected in the Fusion’s much lower resale value compared to the Honda.

2018 Honda Accord

Along with its arch nemesis the Toyota Camry, the Honda Accord defines the midsize family car. In terms of both sales and critical acclaim, the Accord is one of the all-time top cars and it seems to just keep getting better as the generations pass.

The 2018 Accord is all-new for Honda and the biggest departure from past models since its 2003 modernization. The new Accord brings a fresh new look inside and out, all-new drivetrains including two outstanding turbocharged engines, and standard safety that puts it at the top of the list in its own class and in every segment.

Honda gambled here, but hedged its bets. The changes are sensible and smart, and Honda made no blunders with this new Accord that might give Camry an edge. Rather, Honda made certain that in almost every regard, the Accord moves the bar higher and to a new level we feel that most automakers will have trouble reaching with their competitive models.

2016 Honda Accord

As the 2.4 liter 185 horsepower Earth Dreams inline 4-cylinder shot towards its 6800 RPM redline with the speed of a rifle bullet and with the same amount of mechanical precision, in our minds we were no longer behind the wheel of just any old family sedan with a bag of potting soil flying around in the trunk. We were Burt Reynolds in "Smokey and the Bandit" escaping from the police with Sally Field by our side, we were inside the Michael and Janet Jackson duet "Scream" which was playing on the very impressive standard 160-watt 6-speaker audio system at full volume to complement the VTEC symphony from under the hood.

We couldn't remove the stupid grin on our face as we approached the turn to head home where we decided, "screw it, let's go for a drive up the coast." We didn't return home for another six hours. What car induced this temporary bout of motoring madness? Um, a 2016 Honda Accord EX? Yes, we went for a joyride in a family sedan with a 4-cylinder engine and a CVT automatic all for a very sensible price. But something about this family sedan still possesses a wild streak that is absent from rivals like the Altima, Camry and pretty much every nameplate we can think of barring perhaps the Mazda6.

But then the Mazda6 lacks the Accord's one trump card that is so head and shoulders best in class that it is comedic. Having tried every infotainment system out there from Sync3 to Entune to more premium offerings like iDrive, the Apple Carplay application in our test 2016 Honda Accord EX was easy to use, had zero learning curve and performed flawlessly. And yes, to answer everyone's first question, Siri performed every task and understood all of our commands perfectly over the seven-day test which never happens with any voice operated system usually.

2014 Honda Accord

Considering that the Japanese Kanji letter meaning "Dream" is carved into a large, clear sculpture at the entrance to Honda's enormous historical museum near their Twin Ring Motegi Race Track facility near Tokyo, you got to figure the guy meant it. So when the very first generation Honda Accord went on sale on these shores, keep in mind that it was just less than a year before the era when Fleetwood Mac would rule the charts with its record simply titled "Rumours." And we all know that Honda has been the victim of many negative "rumors" in the automotive media regarding an allegedly subpar 2012 Civic and the widespread assumption that the 2014 Accord would be similarly disappointing.

Now, the Accord was not the instant sales powerhouse in this country like that Fleetwood Mac album we spoke of earlier, but even in its infancy this family car always was always willing to "go its own way" to paraphrase the title of one of that albums biggest hits. Over the years the Accord stood as not always the most stylish looking family sedan choice but it was always the most involving to drive and felt the most like a true technological advancement as a piece of engineering.

2013 Honda Accord

The front-wheel drive Honda Accord, one of the top-selling cars in the U.S., is completely redesigned for 2013 with new styling, new features, a new four-cylinder engine and an updated V6. Winner of numerous awards, the Honda Accord is available in coupe and sedan versions, with the sedan the most popular. Trading top spot with the Toyota Camry off and on for years, the new Honda Accord has other rivals in the midsize sedan class, including the Nissan Altima, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Malibu.
