With impressive acceleration and fuel economy the 2017 Honda Accord does have some shortcomings, one of them being overly sensitive driver aids especially frontal collision warning.

Starting from the price range of $22,355, the base model is well equipped. Honda Accord Sedan is offered with an inline-four cylinder that produces 185 horsepower and 181 ft-lbs. of torque.

2017 Honda Accord Features

7.7/10

The sedan variant is available in multiple configurations namely the LX, Sport, Sport Special Edition (Sport SE), EX, EX-L, EX-L V6 and Touring trims. Among the many appreciable features of the Accord is that even the base trims are generously equipped and powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine paired to a six-speed manual transmission or continuously variable automatic transmission along with some other features like 16-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7.7-inch central display, Bluetooth, a rearview camera and a height-adjustable driver seat among others.

Climbing up the trim level you can get more power with the Sport model that would add 19-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights and fog lights, a 60/40-split folding rear seat a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cloth seating with imitation-leather bolsters and a power driver seat. Almost all of the variants can be fitted with Honda Sensing package, which includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning and mitigation.

We Recommend

With a range of options to choose from it can be a daunting task to get the right pick. However, it can be safely said that the Sport model would satisfy most buyers as it packs handling and braking enhancements, including 19-inch wheels, which could certainly please the enthusiast in us.

2017 Honda Accord Engine

"The 2017 Honda Accord is a top-performing family sedan. Acceleration and braking are among the segment best with the V6 model being quicker than many base model luxury sedans. Handling is responsive and composed, and its easy-to-drive nature makes it accessible to any driver."- Edmunds

With a dozen configuration at its disposal, the Honda Accord doesn't miss out to provide its customers an array of powertrains to fit its expansive lineup. The base trim comes with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that is capable of producing 185 horsepower. On the other hand, the Sport model makes 189 horsepower to a high-flow, dual-exhaust system. A slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission is standard with this version, while a CVT is available as a standalone feature.

Engine 2.4L 16-Valve DOHC i-VTEC I4 2.5L DOHC 16-Valve I4 2.5L I-4 DOHC SMPI \u202f1.5L turbo DOHC 4-cylinder

Horsepower 185 hp @ 6400 rpm 184 hp @ 5700 rpm 178 hp @ 6000 rpm 160 hp @ 5700 rpm
Torque 181 lb-ft @ 3900 rpm 185 lb-ft @ 3250 rpm 170 lb-ft @ 4100 rpm 184 lb-ft @ 2500 rpm

The 3.5-liter V-6 engine makes an interesting leap as it can pump out 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque which is quite impressive in its class. The Accord attaches a six-speed manual transmission on its LX, Sport, Sport Special Edition, and EX sedan models. Buyers are given the option of CVT as it comes standard with EX-L sedan and can be attached with 1-4 engine-equipped models. The competitors of Accord do fairly well in terms of performance and Toyota Camry LE stands out with 4100 rpm of torque making it one of the highest performing vehicles of its class.

Acceleration

When equipped with the more popular CVT, the Honda Accord provides effortless acceleration and surprising speed barely taking 7.3 seconds to sprint from zero to 60 mph which is decent in its class. From this buttoned-up sedan you can expect a good thrust and the V6 engine's silky power is both powerful and refined.

If equipped with the manual transmission the Honda Accord improves its performance and the four-cylinder can sprint from zero to 60 mph in 7 seconds. Both Toyota Camry and Mazda both perform fairly well and puts up around same number as that of Accord. Though Chevrolet Malibu L takes a full 8.0 seconds to reach 60 mph.

Ride and Handling

There is no doubt that the 2017 Honda Accord is a top-performing family sedan as its easy-to-drive and has responsive and composed handling. The steering may not be as responsive as its distant Honda cousins but is considerably light in effort and drivers can feel precise and fluid in its movement.

The Accord maintains its composure during sharp turns and doesn't affect the drive-in mid-corner bumps. Regardless of the big wheels and tires the sedan rides very comfortably and even the suspension works well whether you're driving on rough terrains or on the highway.

Braking

The braking capacity of the Accord's V6 model is among the best in the segment as they are quicker and efficient than many base model luxury sedans out there. The brake pedals feel firm and has the right amount of grip even during panic brake tests. The car comes to a halt from 60-0 Mph in just 117 ft. coming second just after Chevrolet Malibu which puts up the number at 113. Other sedans like Mazda Sport and Camry takes 9ft and 12ft more than Accord to come to stop during brake test.

2017 Honda Accord Fuel Economy

8.1/10

The EPA rates the base engine of the Honda Acord at 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. The 2.4-liter base engine performs well when compared to the Camry's base model. Even the V6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic performs remarkably well in terms of fuel economy and achieves 35 mpg on real-world highway fuel-economy test.

MPG (city) 27 26 24 27
MPG (highway) 36 35 33 36
MPG (combined) 30 29 27 30

Fuel-conscious drivers can opt for the four-cylinder Accord that sips less fuel and can travel 600 miles on the highway with a full tank of gas. Camry LE proves to be the most fuel sucking model as it gets combined 27 mpg by the EPA.

2017 Honda Accord Interior

7.8/10

"The Honda Accord seats five, in both coupe and sedan body styles. Up front, the seats are roomy and supportive. The same is true of the rear seats in the sedan, but the coupe’s tight back seats are only suitable for short trips. The cabin has attractive styling and top-notch materials that you can expect to last a long time. "-Cars.USnews

Seating and Comfort

The Honda Accord is spacious with adequate head- and legroom in both the front and rear seats. It is better than Subaru Legacy as it suffers from tighter spaces but at the end, the Volkswagen Passat comes out as the real winner as it offers class-leading 39.1 inches of stretching room. Accord is a good car for long drives as the optional leather-covered front seats are firm and are super comfortable.

37.5/56.5/38.5 37.1/55.5/38.7 38.1/56.6/38.9 37.5/57.1/38.1

Honda Accord can give many entry-level luxury cars a run for their money as the sedan's level of comfort, quietness and overall refinement is unparallel. It can easily carry 5 passengers and the 6 footers in the rear would definitely find enough space to sit comfortably. 

Infotainment System

Almost all the sedan models of the Accord don't come with user-friendly touchscreen interface. They also lack redundant buttons which could have made navigation between the functions quite simpler and easier. The average response time of the touchscreen interface is among the slowest in its class. However, the Honda Accord is sure to please its budget shoppers with its relatively high level of connectivity and infotainment features, which includes: -

  • Pandora streaming compatibility
  • Text-messaging integration
  • Bluetooth audio
  • Bluetooth phone
  • AUX input
  • Dual-screen display

Cargo Volume

Being a class leader in terms of utility the Honda Accord boasts of a well-spaced trunk with abundant small item storage and a roomy backseat. The sedan has 15.8 cubic feet of trunk space in its base models whereas the higher trims like the EX-L and Touring models have 15.5 cubic feet. Except for the base LX all the variants do come with a 60/40-split folding rear seat.

Model Honda Accord LX Mazda 6 sport Toyota Camry LE Chevrolet Malibu L
Cargo Volume (ft.3) 15.8 14.8 15.4 15.8

Among its competitors, the Chevrolet Malibu offers 15.8 cubic feet and Toyota Camry has the maximum capacity of 15.4 cubic feet of space which is in line with that of Accord. Mazda 6 sport is the only sedan which has one cubic feet less space than others.

2017 Honda Accord Exterior

9.1/10

The 2017 Honda Accord pulls off quite a feat when it comes to style: It looks handsome, contemporary, yet timeless. This is a well-proportioned vehicle whose design will likely hold up well as the years pass.-KelleyBlueBook

Dimension and Weight

Many point out that the design of Accord is a bit bland but still carries the identification of a Honda. Like its previous models, the Accord gets a snub-nosed chrome grille, a pair of long thin headlights, and a perky, proportional rear. Buyers are given the option to get the sunroof in EX trim and above but it does certainly shave off precious headroom for the passengers in the rear.

2017 Honda Accord Competition

Mazda 6 Sport vs Honda Accord

Mazda 6 Sport comes with a very responsive engine and its transmission make it feel faster than most family sedans. Having a competitive fuel economy, it comes in par with any other sedans in its class. Drivers would enjoy riding the 6 Sport as its reassuring handling makes it entertaining. The car also flaunts one of the best technology interfaces in the class. The manufacturers have gracefully styled the Mazda 6 Sport. The complaint one would have against this car is that the ride quality of 6 sport is a tad bit stiffer than many of its rivals.

Toyota Camry LE vs Honda Accord

Not only the interior of Toyota Camry LE is comfortable and spacious but the seats are roomy as well. The outward visibility of the car is better than most of the entry-level luxury sedans. All the models of Camry are well endowed and have distinct luxury and sport characteristics. Its interior controls are easy to read and operate and so is its touchscreen interface. Except the middling fuel economy, the Toyota Camry LE is a good option to consider.

Chevrolet Malibu L vs Honda Accord

Often called as a tall-person-friendly car, the Chevrolet Malibu has a lot of interior space and has comfortable seats. The fuel-efficient Hybrid also has respectably brisk acceleration. The 8-inch touchscreen interface works efficiently and is responsive and intuitive as well. Around the turn, it considerably prevents body roll and has sporty handling. Though this car suffers from limited outward visibility. Budget shoppers should consider before opting for the base L trim as its 1.5-liter engine has mediocre acceleration and is also sparsely equipped.

 

2017 Honda Accord Final Verdict

The 2017 Honda Accord may not be the most exciting car on the block, but it certainly has some stand out qualities that makes the car worth considering. If thoughtfully outfitted the car can prove to have an excellent value for money in addition to being efficient and reliable. This well-balanced sedan performs admirably, with plenty of space for passengers and storage. In this hotly contested segment the Honda Accord has withstood the test of time and offers something for nearly everyone with its wide range of body styles and engines.
