Current Model
    The Accord is available with a choice of two turbocharged, four-cylinder engines. The base version gets a 192-hp, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission, a combination that is mostly unobtrusive and delivers adequate power.
    The uplevel turbocharged 2.0-liter brings 252 hp and a slick 10-speed automatic transmission but features an unintuitive push-button gear selector. The Hybrid gets an impressive 47 mpg overall without sacrificing acceleration or trunk space. The infotainment system includes easy-to-use knobs for tuning and volume adjustment. Handling is responsive, and the ride is comfortable. Standard active safety features include FCW and AEB with pedestrian detection, while BSW and RCTW are optional.

    2018-2021
    2018 Redesign Year
    This generation of Accord has a coupelike silhouette and a lower stance. Two turbocharged, four-cylinder engines are available.
    The base version is a 1.5-liter that's shared with the Honda CR-V SUV and the Civic compact car. The new 192-hp engine is mated to a CVT, a combination that is mostly unobtrusive and delivers adequate power. The uplevel turbocharged 2.0-liter brings 252 hp and a slick 10-speed automatic transmission but features an unintuitive push-button gear selector. The Hybrid gets an impressive 47 mpg overall without sacrificing acceleration. The new infotainment system is a big improvement, and includes knobs for tuning and volume adjustment. Handling is responsive, and the ride is comfortable. Standard safety equipment includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assistance. For 2021, the Accord loses its manual transmission option. Other updates include refreshed exterior styling, a standard 8-inch infotainment system, and rear-seat reminder system. Higher trims get wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

    2013-2017
    2013 Redesign Year
    With the 2013 redesign, the Accord shrank in size but remained very accommodating and family-friendly. Four cylinder models got a CVT (continuously variable transmission) that contributes to an excellent 30 mpg in our tests.
    V6 versions remain with a regular automatic. EX and higher trims come with a more complicated radio and LaneWatch, which shows an image of what's on your right side when using the right hand turn signal. We think it's no substitute to blind-spot detection system that covers both sides. The Sport trim sharpens the handling a bit, but compromises ride comfort. High end models come with standard forward collision warning. 2016 updates slightly improved the ride and made the Honda Sensing safety suite, including forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking, available on almost every trim.

    2008-2012
    2008 Redesign Year
    The 2008 redesign made the Accord a larger, roomier car with an immense rear seat. Most importantly, this vintage comes with standard electronic stability control on all versions, a vital safety feature which in itself justifies looking only at 2008 or newer Accords.
    Ride and handling are very good, and the four-cylinder engine is smooth, powerful, and economical. The V6 is smoother, quiet and powerful, but gets just 21 mpg overall. Controls remain a model of clarity and driver visibility is generous. Try to focus on an EX, which is has a power driver seat, sunroof, and alloy wheels.

    2003-2007
    2003 Redesign Year
    The Accord is a good used-car choice by virtue of being roomy, reliable and having clear controls. EX trims are the pick of the Accord line with alloy wheels, a sunroof and better audio system.
    Most samples will have a four-cylinder engine that, together with the automatic, makes for a smooth, unobtrusive powertrain. High-end versions have a slick, powerful and quiet V6. Handling is quite nimble, the ride is steady and controlled and switches and gauges are intuitive. If you can, focus on a 2005 or newer model since it came with standard curtain airbags that provide more protection. 2006 and later models with the V6 come with standard stability control, making them particularly desirable.

    1998-2002
    The Accord has been one of our top-rated sedans for years. While smoother and quieter than the standard four-cylinder engine, the larger V6 engines made the car more front-heavy and less nimble.
    Interior space is fine for four, tight for five. Controls are very easy and big windows provide excellent visibility. If you're interested in a model of this generation, make sure to get an EX with standard ABS.
