Honda built a new engine for the Accord, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with direct injection. Output of only 185 horsepower does not seem that much for the displacement, so it seems Honda tuned this mill for fuel efficiency.

The front-wheel-drive Accord uses a fixed suspension, but Honda did a very good job of tuning it for both comfort and handling. The ride quality in the cabin gets enhanced by active noise cancellation, which makes the ride quieter.

Instead of offering a host of options, Honda builds its cars to trim, so what you see is what you get. The EX trim does not offer navigation, nor the new HondaLink connected feature. It does, however, come standard with LaneWatch blind-spot monitoring.
