Honda Accord Overview

The well-rounded Accord's 2.4-liter four-cylinder works well with its unobtrusive CVT and got an impressive 30 mpg overall. The 3.5-liter V6 is lively and refined, and with the six-speed automatic gets a very good 26 mpg overall. Handling is quite agile and secure, and the ride is compliant but not as good as some competitors'. The cabin is roomy, with supportive seats. Top-trim models have a fussy radio. A plug-in hybrid, with an EV range of 10 to 15 miles, is available in selected states, while a regular hybrid is also available. Reliability of the redesigned four-cylinder sedan is average, but the V6 sedan and coupe versions are below average.
