An update of the 2003-2005 model, the 2006-2007 Accord combines sportiness and all-around capability. Both the base four-cylinder and the optional V6 are refined, quick, and relatively economical. The ride is nicely firm and handling is nimble. The front seats are comfortable and the interior is well finished. Electronic stability control became standard on V6-equipped versions. Road noise is our biggest complaint.
