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

The 2022 model year brings no significant changes to the proven Honda Accord. After a mid-cycle refresh last year, the Accord continues to build on its reputation as one of the most acclaimed midsize sedans in automotive history. It’s virtually impossible to ignore the compelling combination of performance, value, and innovation found across the entire Honda Accord model range.

Standard on every Accord, the Honda Sensing® is an intelligent suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies.

SmartVent® Front Side Airbags and Side Curtain Airbags with a Rollover Sensor surround all occupants for added protection in the event of a collision.

Car and Driver’s 10Best

Car and Driver’s 10Best a Record 35 Times1

The Honda Accord has been named to Car and Driver’s 10Best Cars list over and over 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.”
