This version of the Honda Accord stands out as a comfortable, roomy, and efficient midsized sedan. It's also nice to drive and easy to live with. When matched with the smooth continuously variable transmission, the standard Accord's 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine squeezes out an excellent 30 mpg overall and 40 on the highway. That's better than most smaller compact cars and even some subcompacts.

What Owners Say

“This is my 4th accord. Definitely no longer fun to drive. Not sporty at all. CVT transmission takes the fun out of driving too. The increase in fuel efficiency from the CVT is negligible in every day driving. Bring back more manuals and real automatics.”

Anonymous, NY (2013 Honda Accord)

“I am very impressed with the acceleration of my Accord. This may have a lot to do with the fact that I've only owned compact cars in the past that weren't as fast, but regardless, I am satisfied with my Accord's acceleration.”

BRIAN C., TX (2013 Honda Accord)

“Fantastic power when required. The rest of the time, the car kind of "disappears" around you when driving, no great personality, but also nothing to distract you.”

Anonymous, CA (2013 Honda Accord)

“When I first got the car (used), it would often jump a bit or lurch forward when first accelerating from a stop, or when near stopping when braking. That seems to have mostly gone away on its own over time.”

“Great acceleration and good handling; steering feels a bit light for my taste, but it's precise.”

“Acceleration is minimally satisfactory and ideally would have a little more torque.”

JOHN S., FL (2013 Honda Accord)

“Acceleration on my 4-cylinder is outstanding. I nearly always get away from a stop light too rapidly. Handling also is outstanding, immediately responsive. A rougher ride offsets much of the satisfaction from the outstanding acceleration and handling.”

“good power for a 4 cylinder great handling”

WESLEY W., BC (2013 Honda Accord)

DONALD B., PA (2013 Honda Accord)

“The automatic is a CVT and we are not familiar with them nor what exactly to expect. Often there is a little driveline shudder when applying the gas from a stop even if slow and gentle. In fact I think it's mostly in that case. Okay when you take off moderately or faster. Maybe no time to notice then. But creeping around the parking lot there is sometimes that odd feeling. A coworkers Nissan with a CVT never does this.”

I had a 2001 Acura and the seats didn't show any wear until after about 8 years. Honda uses cheap stiff leather.”

Anonymous, AB (2013 Honda Accord)

Right turn screen display is useless---side view mirror gives exact same information. Keyless start is dopey, but I guess it's the latest big thing. Dashboard is ugly. Too much chrome and glitz.
