The well rounded Accord's strong points include a compliant ride, responsive handling, and a roomy cabin. The driving position and visibility are excellent. The 2011 freshening improved the refined four-cylinder engine's performance and fuel economy, but diminished cornering and braking performance. Road noise remains pronounced, and cabin features are sparse compared with many competitors.
