The Honda Accord comes in sedan and coupe versions. Either way, the Accord is big on efficiency, be it getting the most power and range from a gallon of gas with the least emissions, making the largest interior available given the exterior space it takes up, or providing the smoothest, quietest ride possible with the lightest weight. Whether moving four people comfortably or enjoying the long way home, the Accord is up to the task.
The Accord was completely redesigned for 2008, when it grew in exterior dimensions and interior roominess, safety, and value. The two model years since have brought little change.
For 2010, all Accord models with leather interiors come with a Bluetooth hands-free phone link. Sedans with EX trim and above add rear seat ventilation ducts, and climate controls on all models have new colors and graphics for easier identification.
The Accord is available with a choice of four-cylinder and V6 engines, manual or automatic transmission, and essentially four trim levels.
The Honda Accord sedan competes primarily against the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Mazda 6, and Chevrolet Malibu.
The stylish, two-door Coupe is available with a six-speed manual and V6, the only Accord with that combination, and it comes with larger anti-roll bars and low-profile 18-inch tires and wheels. The Accord Coupe competes directly with the Nissan Altima coupe.
