Honda Accord is one of the best-selling mid-size sedans in its segment and has been breaking the sales charts since it debuted in 1976. Honda has been selling more than 400K units every year on average, which speaks volumes for its impressive appeal in the car market. The 2022 Honda Accord is not very likely to get any major revisions but some minor tweaks in the infotainment sector are expected. A bigger infotainment screen, Apple Carplay & Android Auto will be standard on all models, whereas wireless mobile connectivity is very likely to be introduced in higher trims. Its price is very likely to start from $ 25,500, and with a change in trim levels, it may go up to $37,500. Despite having a very affordable price tag, the car’s opulence matches some of the top luxury cars in this industry. 

The Honda Accord’s looks carry similar charm and versatility that we usually see in the cars from Audi, BMW, Mercedes, etc. Over the years, they have been improving in a very positive manner. It has been able to deliver all the qualities that we expect from a family car like spacious cabin & trunk, comfortable and supportive seats, good driving experience, etc. Moreover, Accord was also able to bag the highest safety rating from NHTSA and Top Safety Pick+ award from IIHS last year. The all-new Honda Accord will be available in 6 trims that will compete with some of the best mid-size sedans in the market such as Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, and Hyundai Sonata. Other than the 6 trims, the Accord also comes in a hybrid model.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The new 2022 Honda Accord will also come in 6 trim levels, which includes a hybrid model also. The price is not very likely to increase drastically, but it is rather expected to be a little more than its predecessor. The base model will start nearly at $ 25,000, and with an increase in trim levels, it is very likely to climb up to $ 37,500.

2022 Honda Accord Features

Honda is offering a very attractive trim lineup for the Accord. The base model gets a 192 hp engine with CVT transmission, which would appeal for casual usage. But going up the trim levels, the engine and transmission see a significant bump at each level. The pricing is also very easy to digest. Honda has made it rather easy to make a choice with the Accord, and the same is expected to be carried forward to the 2022 model year. Honda has also offered a Hybrid variant for $26,570 to make the lineup more lucrative and also to provide a more frugal choice to the consumers.

We recommend

We recommend picking the Sport trim for the most bang for your buck with its 10 speed automatic transmission and turbocharged 2L engine. It's better to avoid the lower trims with the CVT transmission. For a more performance-oriented use case, the Touring packs a strong punch and is recommended over the Sport trims.

Release Date:

The release date of the 2022 Accord is not yet confirmed by Honda, but we expect it to roll towards the fall of 2021, and the bulk production of this car is very likely to start from mid of 2021. But these dates are not confirmed yet, and they may get delayed because of the current scenario with the pandemic.

2022 Honda Accord Engine and Performance

The all-new 2022 Honda Accord will have the same powertrain option that we saw in the 2021 model. As standard, the base avatars of the Accord will contain a 1.5L Turbo inline-4 engine that will make 192 HP and the same 192 lb-ft of torque. This degree of power is very average for most of the sedans out there, but it may be seen to struggle a little in steep terrains & hilly areas.

On the other hand, the top trims namely Sport & Touring will have a 2.0 L turbocharged inline-4 engine that will churn out 252 HP and 273 lb-ft of torque, and it will be mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid model of the Accord will have a 1.5L Turbo inline-4, and it will be connected to twin electric motors. Together they will be able to churn out 212 HP and 232 lb-ft of torque. All the models will come with the FWD as standard like most of its competitors.

.* 2021 MY data taken for reference

Accord completes the 0-60 mph in 7.2 seconds, which is the best in its class. Whereas, it completes a quarter-mile in 15.3 seconds, which also beats its competitors. Other than that, we get a seamless experience in this car, all thanks to its super responsive gearbox and the steering wheel. The dynamics of this car also remain to be one of the best leaving its rivals behind. When comparing the power output, Toyota Camry offers the most at 203 hp.

2022 Honda Accord Fuel Economy

Since this car hasn’t undergone any changes in the powertrain, it will have the same figures as its 2021 model. The fuel economy of the 2022 Honda Accord is very good, indeed it has one of the best figures in the city. The sedan offers 30 mpg in the city, 38 mpg on the highway, and 33 mpg combined. The fuel tank capacity of the Accord remains the same as its predecessor, i.e., 14.8 gallons, which is sufficient for a family sedan.

All cars in the competition offer similar fuel economy, but all the rivals stay 1 mpg behind Accord in the combined mileage. But when it comes to range, the Nissan Altima takes the trophy home thanks to its larger 16.2-gallon fuel tank as it manages to offer 453 miles in the city, 631 miles on the highway, and 518 miles combined.

2022 Honda Accord Interior

The interior of Accord has the potential to make you fall for it at the very first glance. Except for the infotainment sector, the 2022 model has not undergone any major changes. The interior of the 2021 model has been good enough and hasn't left any room for complaints, so it will continue with the same charm as its predecessor. Honda as a brand has never compromised with its quality, and its interior reflects its commitment towards perfection. The seats along with the shift knobs and steering wheel are wrapped in premium perforated leather for comfort and luxury. The seats are very supportive, and headroom and legroom are abundantly available for both the driver and passengers.

As we said before, the infotainment system will now come with Apple Carplay, Android Auto, and a big touch screen display this year. Other than that, a new software update will likely boost the responsiveness and will give you a more seamless experience. The cargo space of the Accord had always been better than most of the competitors, as a result of which, the 2022 model didn’t get any increase in the cargo capacity. The trunk shape and its width will remain the same for this model year, and the dimensions of which will be dominant for the upcoming year also.

The only down point of this car is that unwanted noise is quite high as the cabin is not well isolated from the outside world. Other than that in this price range, it has the best luxury and comfortable cabin in the segment. When comparing the cargo space of the sedans in the competition, Accord offers the most, followed by Hyundai Sonata, Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry at 16, 15.4, and 15.1 cubic feet, respectively. Major infotainment features includes-

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Bluetooth and USB connectivity
  • 8 inch infotainment display comes standard with 
  • Best in class 450 watt music system in the EX-L trim
  • Wireless connectivity 

2022 Honda Accord Exterior

The exterior of the 2022 Honda Accord looks very sophisticated and has a ton of similarities with the German luxury sedans. The 2022 model year has followed the same traits of its predecessor in terms of design, and no major changes were noticed from spy shots. The design layout of its exterior is kept pretty modern and edgy, and it perfectly suits a family car. Honda has poured all their engineering skills in designing the exterior because of which it looks very expensive at the very first glance, although it is very affordable.

2022 Honda Accord Safety

Honda as a brand has kept on evolving from time to time and has taken the latest safety measures that will keep you safe inside its cabin. The 2022 Accord is further based on the same platform as Civic that has proved itself on being very tough and rigid over the years. The 2022 Accord has the same safety measures that we saw in the 2021 model, and no additions have been made for this year. It has been laid out with all the basic safety features that include airbags, stability control, rearview camera, traction control, and much more. Mentioned below are some of the standout safety features of the Accord that makes its cabin one of the safest place to be in-

  • Lane departure warning
  • Forward collision warning
  • Blindspot monitor
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Low tire pressure monitoring system
  • Emergency braking assist

2022 Honda Accord Competition

2022 Honda Accord vs 2021 Toyota Camry

Both of these cars share rivalry every year. Like IOS and Android in the tech industry, these two cars are very dominant in their own segment of a mid-size sedan. Talking about Camry, it comes out to be slightly better in features when it comes to comfort & safety. But the Accord has much better dimensions. Both cars offer a great driving experience, engines, etc. But the plus point of the Camry is that it comes with a V6 engine option, which is not available in the Accord. In this comparison, we think Toyota is a clear winner by a slight margin.

2022 Honda Accord vs 2021 Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima doesn't seem to beat the likes of the Honda Accord, but it does have some good things about it which set it apart. Altima comes with an All wheel drive option and a more affordable price point. But Accord has better power, a more comfortable and spacious cabin as well as trunk space, and obviously great driving dynamics which is way better than the Altima. So, in this comparison between these two cars, the Accord seems to be a clear winner for us.

2022 Honda Accord vs 2021 Hyundai Sonata

The Honda faces stiff competition from its South Korean rival, the Sonata. Sonata has multiple safety accolades in its arsenal, and also rides a bit smoother with its smaller wheels. But in the past few years, Sonata’s rather over-the-top styling has soured the taste of many long time enthusiasts. The Honda Accord on the other hand offers more tasteful aesthetics along with a roomier interior. The Accord also has punchier engine choices than the Sonata.

2022 Honda Accord Final Verdict

The 2022 Honda Accord fulfills all the basic requirements that we usually expect from a family sedan like good comfort, spacious trunk and cabin, good dynamics, and fuel economy. When we compare the Accord side-by-side with its competitors, it lacks in certain segments such as cabin noise and tech features. At this price range, Camry feels slightly better than Accord, but the dynamics, responsive feedback of the latter is still unmatched. This car could turn up to be a great companion, but you should definitely check out the Camry at least once and compare them before making a deal.
