The latest Honda Accord stands out as a comfortable, roomy, and efficient midsized sedan that's nice to drive and easy to live with. While it doesn't have the pizzazz of some competitors, the four-cylinder Accord remains competitive in this class. The Accord is also available with a spirited and economical V6, or as a conventional hybrid (the plug-in model is discontinued for 2016).

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Even though a 4-cylinder engine, it has great acceleration in short amount of time."

JUDY A., NE (2016 Honda Accord)

"This car has Honda Sensing. It has forced me to modify my driving technique, for the better. There are still some software bugs that must be fixed, but it's a good start. Get discount on auto insurance."

STANLEY N., MI (2016 Honda Accord)

"somewhat difficult to parallel park. all my previous cars were better in this regard."

Anonymous, NY (2016 Honda Accord)

"Best acceleration of any 4 cylinder Honda I have ever owned (several)"

BRUCE F., CT (2016 Honda Accord)

"The continuously variable transmission gives this car tremendous acceleration for a 4 cylinder car. Its a peppy car."

Anonymous, GA (2016 Honda Accord)

"Steering has no feeling and with weight over wheels changes direction too quickly. Also the ride is a bit jittery and it feels very front heavy going into turns (V6 model)"

ROGER S., CA (2016 Honda Accord)

"Collision Mitigation system. Way too sensitive in my opinion. Do not like the continuous annunciation on the instrument panel when the system is selected off. Honda should have co-located this caution light with the switch on the lower left panel."

PJ S., WA (2016 Honda Accord)

"I went through quite a process selecting my vehicle this year. Studied, researched, and drove many vehicles in the Accord category, including luxury sedans and coupes. The only vehicle that outdrove the Accord for acceleration and handling is the high end 2 series BMW (M240i). For the dollars spent, I am very pleased with the acceleration and handling, especially with the V6 engine. As much as I would love a high performance vehicle, I don't have the money to shell out for maintenance. Pleased w"

"Car handles very well with very good pickup with the v6"

CHARLES C., NY (2016 Honda Accord)

"Accord continues to be a solid-performing sedan. 6-speed automatic is far more pleasant than a CVT"

BARRY M., NJ (2016 Honda Accord)

"The automatic transmission uphill and downhill shifting is uneven. The 2010 Honda Accord I previously owned was better in this regard."

GERALD S., AL (2016 Honda Accord)

"xcellent pickup. great handling, comfort can't be beat"

Anonymous, MA (2016 Honda Accord)

"Good acceleration ."

DIANE V., MI (2016 Honda Accord)

"Drive is good but seams tight on the highway, It is easy to wonder a little in the lane."

Anonymous, ME (2016 Honda Accord)

"The drive on the Accord is very smooth. Acceleration from low RPM leaves something to be desired but it's a smooth engine and fun to rev out. Handling is also decent for a car this size. Not as good as a Mazda 6 but way smoother."

JONATHAN D., QC (2016 Honda Accord)

"The engine cuts off unexpectedly when I touch the brake pedal, which I do often in city traffic."

MICHAEL G., FL (2016 Honda Accord)

"After driving buick csx Lucerne, acceleration is noticeably slower. Maybe should have gone with v6."

FRED E., NC (2016 Honda Accord)

"great acceleration, terrible turn radius"

Anonymous, WA (2016 Honda Accord)

"The economy mode has issue when you have to hold for another car and need to accelerate. It can/well nearly die when you heavy accelerate after costing."

D O., IN (2016 Honda Accord)

"Acceleration is great for its class.As good or better than Mercedes or Audi and much less money. Handling is not like my M235i BMW but it is not a sports car. It fits my needs perfectly"

TOM G., OH (2016 Honda Accord)

"Handling is excellent. The info system is somewhat confusing and no easy to use. The ride is choppy."

STEPHEN B., MA (2016 Honda Accord)

"CVT is excellent in normal driving but struggles under heavy acceleration. Somewhat of a rubber band effect - engine revs quickly but there is a lag before the transmission catches up and then the car really jumps."

Anonymous, GA (2016 Honda Accord)

"Lane departure and Collision System work very well, although noone at the agency really knew how they worked, nor was the tiny manual very useful; we had to go online to learn what was happening when it beeped, for example."

ROBERT B., MO (2016 Honda Accord)

"Smooth and easy."

SHEILA G., MD (2016 Honda Accord)

"The 4 cylinder engine is powerful enough to accelerate the traffic on major interstates and handling is tight, responsive and provides confidence."

DANIEL D., PA (2016 Honda Accord)

"Slow to accelerate getting on highway. Have to adjust for lack of power without 6 caldera otherwise no different from 6. 4 is much more fuel efficient."

Anonymous, GA (2016 Honda Accord)

"The 4-cylinder engine has as much pickup as the 6-cyl. engine in my prior 1998 Honda Accord, even though it is a slightly bigger car."

Anonymous, TN (2016 Honda Accord)

"Acceleration not as responsive as I thought the 4 cylinder and CVT would provide. I should have purchased the 6 cylinder w/o the CVT."

JAMES W., TX (2016 Honda Accord)

"The acceleration provided by the 4 cylinder engine is excellent."

PAUL B., NY (2016 Honda Accord)

"rough riding on back roads - noisy. Much better on highway - smooth & quick! We like the right turn camera that shows that it is safe to move over. Storage is pretty good for a sedan - back seats fold down for extra long space."

PATRICA O., MD (2016 Honda Accord)

"The V6 engine has plenty of power and acceleration and we love the way it handles. When you step on it, it GOES!!"

G W., MS (2016 Honda Accord)

"It does a good job."

Anonymous, IA (2016 Honda Accord)

"GREAR ACCELERATION AND HANDLING"

KASPER P., FL (2016 Honda Accord)

"Wanted a V6 for the accelleration as the only thing I wanted to upgrade over my 4 cyl 2010 Accord. Handles great for a sedan. Follows the road and on ramps well. Feels like I'm one with the car just in normal and lively legal speed driving around."

Anonymous, ON (2016 Honda Accord)

"With 189 hp the engine needs greater torque availability. The "Sport" version, which I have, needs a more sport tuned suspension. There's too much body lean."

Anonymous, NJ (2016 Honda Accord)

"Acceleration with the CVT is somewhat sluggish"

JAMES B., NM (2016 Honda Accord)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

BRENT F., UT (2016 Honda Accord)

"Wished I had gotten the auto adjusting drivers seat."

Anonymous, CA (2016 Honda Accord)

"Seating, roominess fine but ride is somewhat less comfortable than heavier cars."

SANFORD L., CA (2016 Honda Accord)

"I am surprised that the driver seat doesn't move farther back to provide more legroom to the driver. It is not uncomfortable as is, but I would have preferred to stretch my legs out a little more on longer rides, and my legs are pretty short."

JOHN J., VA (2016 Honda Accord)

"There is a vibration and noise level when the car is on brake or idle."

Anonymous, CA (2016 Honda Accord)

"I don't think the seats are that comfortable compared to our 2000 Toyota. The garage opener and phone system crashes. We had the car set to open the garage door and it only worked a couple weeks before it crashed. We've set up the bluetooth phone twice but it only works once and crashes."

"passenger seat does not have lumbar support also it is rather low to the ground for getting in/out for older people"

Anonymous, OR (2016 Honda Accord)

"It took a while to get used to the seats, mostly due to the federally-required way-forward position of the head restraints. AC is powerful. A wind whistle at my ear at highway speed was readily fixed as per a TSB. It's quieter than my last Accord, but I'll really know when the Michelin Primacy tires wear out and I go to Premiers.

ROLAND K., MI (2016 Honda Accord)

"The manual driver's seat in the LX adjusts fore and aft when the bottom seat cushion adjusts up and down. This ends up being a slight problem for us taller drivers. This car needs to have an electric seat option in the LX, or a non-black interior option for the sport.
