Honda Accord 2001 sedan
Trim Shown: Sedan
The Accord is one of our highest-rated family sedans and is competitively priced. The V6 version is sprightlier and quieter; the Four, more economical. Handling is sound, and the ride is supple. Road noise in the 2000 model was a bit pronounced compared with its competitors, like the Toyota Camry and VW Passat, but Honda claims the 2001 model has been quieted. The Accords interior looks and feels inviting. The front seating is roomy, and a low dash gives short drivers good visibility. The Accord coupe performs very much like the sedan except for a slightly firmer ride; the best-value Accord is the LX V6 sedan.

Road Test

While still a fine, competent car, the Accord is losing ground to newer competitors. Braking, ergonomics and fit and finish remain impressive. But engine performance, ride quality, accommodations, and interior quietness aren't outstanding.
