Honda Accord Overview

The basic four-cylinder Accord is our Top Pick among family sedans. It rides and handles well, has a roomy and well-finished interior, and gets and impressive 30 mpg overall with its unobtrusive CVT. The 3.5-liter V6 is lively and refined, and with the six-speed automatic gets a very good 26 mpg overall. The Hybrid model gets 40 mpg overall and operates smoothly, but it doesn't ride or handle as well as other Accords. A Plug-in version available in some states has a claimed electric range of 13 miles. Higher end models have had problems with the touch-screen infotainment system.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
