Accords are roomy, comfortable and very easy to live with, largely free of niggling annoyances that can make otherwise good cars less appealing. Honda Accord and Toyota Camry have long been the benchmarks for midsize sedans because both do everything well. The Accord has a hint of sportiness that adds appeal.
The four-door Accord sedan competes with the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Mazda 6, and Chevrolet Malibu. The Accord offers roomier front seats than the competition. And the Accord comes off more polished than most, with an emphasis on power, fuel economy and space efficiency.
The stylish Accord Coupe offers a 6-speed manual with the V6, for a rare combination in mid-size cars. It comes with a sporty suspension package and low-profile tires on 18-inch wheels, and goes head to head with the Nissan Altima coupe.
Accord EX-L add leather on the seats and steering wheel, while the EX-L V6 also has two-position memory for the driver’s seat. The four-cylinder EX-L comes standard with the automatic transmission, just like the V6 models. The EX-L models also come with 270-watt audio, XM Satellite Radio, Bluetooth connectivity, heated front seats, compass and exterior temperature indicator, automatic on/off headlights and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
