What the Critics Say

No matter if equipped with the 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four base engine or the upgraded 2.0-liter turbo-four, the sedan has plenty of useful grunt. The Accord with the smaller mill even outperforms every other mainstream midsize sedan with a base powertrain.” — MotorTrend
With a commodious trunk and enough space for four adults to relax in comfort, the Accord is also an ideal road-trip partner, made even better by its comprehensive set of standard driver-assistance features and intuitive infotainment system. There’s a reason the Accord happens to find its way onto our annual 10Best and Editors’ Choice lists: It’s a winner.” — Car and Driver

What’s New for 2022

Back after receiving a mid-cycle refresh last year, the Honda Accord is back for 2022 with no major changes to report. Without a doubt, the Accord has earned its reputation as one of the most successful and proven midsize sedans in automotive history. Today’s Accord gives drivers an opportunity to experience a combination of power, value, and innovation not found on any of its competition.

Proven Performance

Two sophisticated engine options make it simple to find the right Honda Accord to match your driving style. Standard power comes from a 1.5-liter VTEC® Turbocharged 4-cylinder which produces 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. Searching for more thrills? The available 2.0-liter turbo cranks out 252 horsepower along with 278 lb-ft of torque for instantaneous response. An advanced CVT is offered on 1.5-liter models while the 2.0-liter can be equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission for maximized fuel economy. Adaptive dampers actively control suspension articulation for a nimble driving experience with the Honda Accord.

Honda Accord Awards

Car and Driver’s 10 Best

Car and Driver’s 10Best a Record 35 Times1

The Honda Accord has been named to Car and Driver’s 10Best Cars list time and time again. This year marks the 35th time the Accord has made the prestigious 10Best list.

Car and Driver says “the new Accord embodies and expands upon the same virtues that put its predecessors on the list. The chassis, although lighter, is stiffer and feels as rigid as those in luxury cars that cost twice as much; the suspension tuning takes advantage of that to deliver a refined mix of ride quality and handling precision; and all the controls—from steering wheel and pedals to knobs and switches—respond promptly to light and proportionate efforts.”
