Overall Rating

The 2017 model has been updated with a new Special Edition trim that combines many of the most popular options into one model- Autolist

In the midsize sedan segment, the Honda Accord has always been one of the top players. It is loved by many American families because of its competitive offering. Both the engines provide sufficient power, a comfortable ride, and an excellent fuel economy for a daily commuter. Boasting as a family sedan, it offers the roomiest cabin with plenty of features in its class. With Honda Sense available on all trims, the Accord is one of the safest sedans in the market.

The Accord flaunts one of the lowest initial prices in its class. However, the true cost to own the Accord is in line with other midsize sedans in its segment. It costs an average of around $6,650 per year for its maintenance, repair, finance, depreciation, and fuel. It has also strong reliability ratings and stands above most of the cars in its class. The miles per dollar ratio of the Accord is estimated to be 9.61, which is one of the best in its segment.

The Honda Link infotainment system is standard from the EX trim onwards but the lower trims are available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also, the Honda Sense, which is a suite of safety technologies, is available from the base trim itself.

The EX trim is the much-preferred choice from the Honda Accord lineup. It adds a 7-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a moonroof, satellite radio, HD radio, push-button start, and a blind-spot monitor. The EX trim is so well-equipped with features that there is no need for opting for any optional packages.

2017 Honda Accord Engine and Performance


The 2017 Honda Accord is a top-performing family sedan- Edmunds

2017 Honda Accord Engine & Transmission 

Under the hood, you get two engines for the Honda Accord. The base engine is a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that makes 185 hp and 181 lb-ft. of torque. The Sport trim bumps the power and torque slightly to 189 hp and 182 lb-ft. of torque. What's unique in this segment is that this engine is mated by default to a slick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission while a CVT transmission is optional on the LX, Sport, and EX trim.

2017 Honda Accord engine

The EX-L and Touring models get a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 278 hp and 252 lb-ft. of torque. This engine is mated only to a 6-speed automatic transmission that is not always the smoothest in operation. On the other hand, the CVT transmission delivers smooth, efficient operation minus the annoying engine drone that plagued older CVTs. All the power is driven to the front wheels only, 

Models 2017 Honda Accord 2017 Mazda 6 2017 Toyota Camry 2017 Nissan Altima

Drivetrain FWD FWD FWD FWD

The Accord makes the most power among other rivals in this competition. It also comes standard with a manual transmission, unlike its rivals. The Mazda 6 is just one horsepower away to share the stage with the Accord. It is a similar story with the Toyota Camry as it makes one less horsepower than the Nissan Altima while the latter comes with a standard CVT. 

2017 Honda Accord Acceleration

The Honda Accord accelerates from 0-60 MPH in 8 seconds while the quarter-mile run is completed in 16.3 seconds. With the V6 engine, the acceleration test is finished in just 5.7 seconds and further takes on the quarter-mile in 14.2 seconds. The top speed is limited to 120 MPH. With nearly 100 horsepower more than the four-cylinder, the V6 absolutely puts a gap in acceleration.

2017 Honda Accord takes 8 sec to reach 60 MPH

As soon as you punch in, the tires want to spin and it rips off the line. Power comes in quickly and you can get up to highway speeds quickly. The 6-speed automatic makes a big difference in how the car accelerates compared to the CVT in the four-cylinder. The CVT, on the other hand, is tuned more for fuel economy versus performance. Therefore, speed lovers should prefer the V6 over the four-cylinder.

Models 2017 Honda Accord 2017 Mazda 6 2017 Toyota Camry 2017 Nissan Altima
0-60 MPH 8.0 sec 7.4 sec 7.9 sec 7.8 sec
Quarter mile 16.3 sec 15.8 sec 16.2 sec 16.0 sec
Engine 2.4L 2.5L 2.5L 1.5L
Top Speed 120 MPH 139 MPH 120 MPH 125 MPH

The Mazda 6 beats all its competitors to claim the title as the quickest contender in this competition. The Nissan Altima's performance stats is the closest to Mazda while the Toyota Camry is right behind, hanging at the tail of the Altima. The Accord is the slowest sedan here but the story is different with a V6. 

2017 Honda Accord Ride and Handling

With a stiffer structure, reworked suspension, and retuned steering system, the Accord once again lands at the sweet spot between ride comfort and agility. The cornering is sharp enough and there is a lot of grips too. It's no sports car but there are certainly worse handling cars in the market. 

2017 Honda Accord rear driving view

The ride quality is soft but not floaty. However, with the larger 19-inch wheels, the ride quality is not that great. Amazingly, there isn't any torque steer, the wheel remains firmly in your hands. The steering is accurate but it's devoid of feel. It also requires a lot of minor corrections to keep the car going straight down the road. 

2017 Honda Accord Braking

The braking performance of the Honda Accord is impressive. In the brake test, the sedan took 117 feet to halt from 60-0 MPH. The wheels are assisted with 11.5-inch disc brakes, both at the front and the back. Compared to other cars in the midsize sedan segment, the Accord really shines in this field. 

2017 Honda Accord brakes

The brakes feel smooth and progressive. Once the pedal is pushed, the brakes show an immediate response and there is no delay in action. The Accord also comes with automatic emergency braking that helps to shorten the braking distance by applying strong braking power at the time of emergencies. 

Models 2017 Honda Accord 2017 Mazda 6 2017 Toyota Camry 2017 Nissan Altima
Brake Front 11.5 in 11.7 in 11.7 in 11.7 in

Curb Weight  3,239 lbs 3,305 lbs 3,310 lbs 3,207 lbs
60-0 MPH 117 ft. 127 ft. 126 ft. 121 ft.

The Accord impresses many buyers with its amazing braking performance that leads to the shortest braking distance.  The Nissan Altima is the second place holder as it takes 121 feet to stop from 60 MPH. Having similar curb weights, the Mazda 6 and the Toyota Camry stay at the same level in terms of braking distance.

The 2017 Honda Accord delivers impressive fuel economy, and that's not just with its base 4-cylinder engine- The Car Connection

According to the EPA, it returns 27 MPG in the city, 36 MPG on a highway, and 30 MPG combined. If you get the Sport trim then that drops to 29 MPG combined. 

2017 Honda Accord rear angle view

If you get a manual transmission, things drop a little further to a combined mileage of 26 MPG. The more powerful V6 engine returns 25 MPG combined, which is still good considering the power it makes. The Accord is fitted with a 17.2-gallon fuel tank, owing to which it delivers a combined driving range of 541 miles. This reduces to 464 miles with the V6 engine. 

Models 2017 Honda Accord 2017 Mazda 6 2017 Toyota Camry 2017 Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima beats the Accord to claim the title as the most fuel-efficient car in this segment while the Accord stands in second place. The Mazda 6 also has good fuel numbers for the power it makes but is slightly less than the Accord. On the other hand, the Toyota Camry is the least efficient, returning only 27 MPG combined.

2017 Honda Accord Seating and Comfort

The Honda Accord seats up to five people while its interior layout is minimalistic and functional. Cloth upholstery is standard but the EX-L and Touring trim add leather-trimmed seats. As far as comfort is concerned, both the front seats are exceptionally comfortable. They are heated and power-adjustable on higher trims. The steering is tilt and telescopic, which allows the driver to attain a comfortable driving position. 

2017 Honda Accord dashboard

The rear doors open wide so getting in and out wouldn't be an issue. Where the Accord really excels over a wide variety of competition is in the back seat. It has plenty of head and legroom both front and back and that combination of quality and quantity is exactly what the Accord delivers. Adults are going to be very comfortable at the back. The rear-seat passengers also get a soft-padded center armrest with two cupholders. 

Models 2017 Honda Accord 2017 Mazda 6 2017 Toyota Camry 2017 Nissan Altima
Passenger Capacity 5 5 5 5

The Mazda 6 offers slightly more rear legroom but lacks a bit of headroom. The Nissan Altima offers the least rear-seat passenger space in this competition. The front passenger space in the Toyota Camry is comparatively less than the Accord. Overall, the Accord has the roomiest cabin in this class. 

2017 Honda Accord Infotainment System

A 7-inch touchscreen display is the main center house for all the infotainment functions in the Honda Accord that is standard from the EX trim. Lower trims get a 7.7-inch display that performs basic functions such as AM/FM radio, Bluetooth, etc. This system is paired to a 4-speaker stereo on lower trims while a sound system with 7 speakers is standard from the EX-L model. 

2017 Honda Accord infotainment system

The graphics may be crisp and easy to read but there's a little logic to the menu layouts. Honda's insistence on removing all the volume knobs from the Accord remains a sore point but the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the options list for the lower trims is a pretty decent offering. Smartphone integration is a standard feature from the EX trim onwards. 

2017 Honda Accord Interior Features

The Honda Accord's cabin is feature-rich and hence, it is one of the top players in its segment. These features include:

  • Tilt & telescopic multi-function leather steering wheel
  • Push-button start
  • Remote engine start
  • Power front heated seats
  • Cloth & leather upholstery
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • 7.7-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • 4 & 7-speaker sound system
  • Voice recognition audio system
  • SiriusXM

2017 Honda Accord Cargo Volume

The Honda Accord offers a cargo capacity of 15.8 cu-ft., which is one of the best in its class. The EX-L, Sport and Touring models flaunt a reduced 15.5 cu-ft. of cargo storage. Nevertheless, it still remains a class leader in this field. Also, the rear seats come with spit-seat functionality, except for the base LX trim.

2017 Honda Accord cargo volume

But there are some flaws in this trunk. You can't put two full-size suitcases side by side, sliding all the way to the seatback. That's because the wheels intrude the space. Also, Honda didn't provide any handle on the inside or slot to put your fingertip in the Accord. There are many other sources for interior storage in the cabin as well. 

Models 2017 Honda Accord 2017 Mazda 6 2017 Toyota Camry 2017 Nissan Altima
Cargo Volume (cu-ft.) 15.8 14.8 15.1 15.4

The Accord is clearly the most practical sedan in its class while the Nissan Altima skips to second place and is slightly less than the Accord. At 15.1 cu-ft., the Toyota Camry offers a decent cargo space, which is on par with most of the cars in this segment but the Mazda 6 is the least practical sedan in this segment.

2017 Honda Accord Dimension and Weight

As the Honda Accord received a refreshed styling last year, there are no major updates this year. The bold chrome bar goes all the way from one headlamp module to other, with a large Honda logo in the center. LED DRLs and LED fog lights are standard throughout the range except for the base model. Also, only the top-end Touring trim gets LED headlights while the rest of the models come standard with halogen headlamps. 

2017 Honda Accord front angle view

The Accord has the shortest wheelbase but that does not affect its rear-seat passenger space and the credit goes to Honda engineers. The Accord sits 5.8 inches from the ground, which is decent for a sedan. Speaking of wheels, they are 17 inches for low-end models and 19 inches for Sport and Touring trim. Coming to the back, you get a large chrome strip on the trunk lid and on the lower fascia. The LED taillights stretch from the trunk lid to the body. 

Models 2017 Honda Accord 2017 Mazda 6 2017 Toyota Camry 2017 Nissan Altima

The Mazda 6 has the highest ground clearance in this competition. Therefore, it is less likely for the vehicle to get its underbelly scraped. The Nissan Altima and the Toyota Camry share the same wheelbase, which is around 2 inches more than the Accord. As mentioned before, the Accord's rear-row feels more accommodating than the other two rivals. 

2017 Honda Accord Exterior Features

Some of the noticeable exterior features of the Accord are mentioned below:

  • LED headlights, taillights and DRLs
  • LED front fog lamps
  • Chrome door handles
  • Dual exhaust chrome tips
  • Chrome grille
  • Rear decklid

2017 Honda Accord Competition

2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Mazda 6

The Mazda 6 is highly praised for its excellent agility although it makes as much power as the Accord. Moreover, it delivers such performance without hampering its fuel efficiency. In terms of passenger space, both the sedans stand at the same level but the Accord is ahead with more trunk volume. It's a tie between two sedans when it comes to safety ratings as both of them won awards from IIHS and also boast good safety features. 

2017 Mazda 6

2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry is a true rival to the Accord. It makes few horses less than the Accord and yet, it shines on both performance tests. However, it is not best considered when it comes to fuel economy. The Camry's cabin offers similar space as the Accord but the Accord has a much nicer interior and more standard features. The Camry has earned the same safety ratings as the Accord but its top reliability is the real deal-breaker. 

2017 Toyota Camry

2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima's power figures are less but its acceleration is better than the Accord. It is one of the competitors that use a CVT transmission like the Accord and hence, its fuel efficiency is even greater than the Accord. The Altima also has strong reliability ratings but lacks enough rear-seat space while its interior is also less upscale. With regards to safety, the Altima and the Accord stand together but the former's offers more safety features.

2017 Honda Accord Final Verdict

It is a very tough battle in the midsize sedan segment but like a good server at a restaurant, the Honda Accord impresses quietly doing its job with zero drama. Besides its long list of features, the Accord has an efficient engine lineup that delivers enough power when needed. Also, its rear-seat accommodations are one of the best in the class. Depending on your tastes, there are certainly reasons to look elsewhere but if what you need is an all-purpose family sedan, the Honda Accord is an easy solution.
