About Honda Accord
When someone says the name “Honda” it is very likely you’ll also think of the car model “Accord.” It is understandable, because Accord has been a staple in the Japanese automaker’s line-up for more than four decades.
The Accord started as a small, two-door hatchback. Eventually, Honda made it into a family sedan that has made it one of the best-selling sedans in the world. Despite getting a lot of competition from models like the Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion, the Honda Accord remains as the best in its class.
Here are the specs of the 2015 Honda Accord:
- Engine: 2.4 liter 4 cylinder inline
- Power: 185 hp at 6400 rpm
- Torque: 181 pound feet at 3900 rpm
- Fuel Efficiency Ratings: 24 mpg city driving, 34 mpg highway driving
- Transmission: Six speed manual
- Drive Train: Four wheel drive
- Total seating: Five
- MSRP: $23,725
There are actually three engine options for the 2015 Honda Accord.
The base engine is a 2.4 liter, inline 4 that can produce 185 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 181 pound feet of torque at 3900 rpm.
If that engine isn’t powerful enough for you, opt for the 3.5 liter V6 engine that can produce 278 horsepower at 6200 rpm and 252 pound feet of torque at 4900 rpm. Fuel efficiency ratings of this engine expectedly pale in comparison with the base engine, with 18 mpg for city driving and 28 mpg for highway driving versus the 24/34 of the base engine.
There’s also the hybrid model powered by a 2 liter inline-4 124-kW AC synchronous permanent magnetic motor with total horsepower of 196 hp and fuel economy ratings of 50 mpg for city driving and 45 mpg for highway driving.
One of the reasons why the Accord has remained a best-seller 40 years since its inception is its good power for acceleration and passing. The new Accord continues that tradition. The three engines can assure exceptional fuel economy, which is something that most motorists would want from a family sedan.
Credit should also be given to Honda for making the Accord Hybrid. It can transition from gas engine to electric power smoothly. There’s a slight whine coming from the electric power train but it is not too loud to cause any concern or distraction.
Exterior and Interior
Unlike most midsize sedans that have been incorporated with prominent grills, elongated headlights and other modifications in a bid to sell well, the Accord’s looks have remained conservative. It retains its sloping roofline and forward stance which may pale in comparison with the designs of other sedans, but should likely age well.
The Accord’s five-passenger cabin isn’t the most stunning but it feels sophisticated. There’s a lot of room inside, and drivers won’t be complaining about peripheral vision. The controls are also easy to reach.
There’s the standard eight inch screen that is located in the dash for infotainment purposes. Higher end trims also have a secondary screen for Bluetooth wireless streaming and touch-operated audio.
Passengers at the back would not complain as there’s enough room for three adults. The front seats are also comfy and supportive.
Standard equipment includes dual zone climate control, AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth connectivity and USB input. For the Sport models, standard features are 18 inch alloy wheels and power driver’s seat. For the EX models, standard features include leather seating, improve audio system, heated front seats as well as lane departure warning.
Like most of its competitors, there are also a lot of optional add-ons for the Accord. There’s satellite navigation, multi-angle rearview camera, a seven-speaker audio system, blind spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control. You can also customize the car by adding a rear spoiler, sport grille, and illuminated doorsill.
The Honda Accord is a top safety pick of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, getting a score of ‘good’ in five tests. It also has a five star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with good scores in frontal crash, side crash, and rollover crash tests.
Standard safety features include passenger air bag, driver air bag, side head and rear head airbags, and four-wheel ABS. There’s also electronic stability control as well as child safety locks.
The 2015 Honda Accord has a base price of around $23,000. Add $800 for a car with automatic transmission. The high-end V6 touring sedan has a price of around $34,000. The hybrid Accord is around $30,000.
The price of the Accord is within the price range of rivals like the Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, and Chevy Malibu. Slightly lower are models like the Subaru Legacy, Kia Optima, Hyundai Sonata, and Mazda 6.
With such impressive features and reasonable price, it is not surprising that the Accord remains at the top of its class.
