Fresh off a redesign in 2021, 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 will be standard on all models, whereas wireless mobile connectivity is very likely to be introduced in higher trims. The powertrain front will be carried over, with the 2.0L NA and the 1.5L turbo-4 engine running on point. Apart from that, rumors have been soaring high of Honda introducing the 2.0L turbo-4 engine from the Honda Civic Type R.



The 2022 Honda Accord's price should be set somewhere around the $25,500 ballpark, and with subsequent feature changes 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 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 2022 Accord will also come in a hybrid model.

2022 Honda Accord Buying Advice

Out of the well-laden trim lineup of the 2022 Honda Accord, we would recommend you to go for the Sport 2.0T model. The valid reason behind this being, apart from the sumptuous feature list Honda has procured for you, you also get treated with the much more potent 252 hp 2.0L turbo-four engine. The Accord Sport was a pretty popular model, as it did come with a 6-speed manual transmission unit earlier on, but come the year 2022, one might have to let do with the CVT. Honda has also offered plenty of customization packages on offer, which makes this trim all the more worthy.

2022 Honda Accord Features

8.0/10

Honda is offering a very attractive trim lineup with the 2022 Accord. Offered in over 6 trim levels, namely LX, Sport, Sport SE, EX-L, Sport 2.0T, and Touring, Honda delivers the latest features on offer with the 2022 Accord. The base model gets a 192 hp engine with CVT transmission, which would appeal for casual usage. But going up the five trim levels, the engine and transmission see a significant bump at each level. The pricing is also very easy to digest, ranging from an estimated $25,500 -$37,000.

Honda has made it rather easy to make a choice with the Accord, and the same will be carried forward to the 2022 model year. Honda will also offer a Hybrid variant for $27,000 to make the lineup more lucrative and also to provide a more frugal choice to the consumers.

2022 Honda Accord Engine and Performance

8.0/10

Given the Accord's 2021 refresh, it's safe to assume last year's powertrain offerings will carry over for the 2022 model year - Motor Trend

The all-new 2022 Honda Accord will have the same powertrain option powering it through, that we saw in the 2021 Accord 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 at 1600 RPM. This degree of power output is pretty average for most of the sedans out there, but it may be seen to struggle a little in steep terrains & hilly areas for sure.

On the other hand, the top trims namely Sport & Touring will expectedly have a 2.0L 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, now that the 6-speed manual transmission unit has been sidelined. All the Accord variants will come with the FWD as standard like most of its competitors.

The 2022 Honda Accord should be able to complete the 0-60 mph sprint in 6.6 seconds, which is the best in its class. This is with the 1.5L turbo unit. Opt for the 2.0L turbo-four engine, and those figures drop down to 5.7 seconds. The Accord also crosses the quarter-mile mark in 15.1 seconds, which also comfortably beats its outright competitors. Other than that, we also get a seamless driving experience with this car, all thanks to its super responsive gearbox and the steering wheel. The driving dynamics of this car also prove out to be one of the best in its class, leaving its rivals behind. Coming to the braking sector too, the 2022 Honda Accord can come to a complete stop in just about 116 ft.

2022 Honda Accord Fuel Economy

8.0/10

Those more focused on fuel efficiency should hope the Accord Hybrid sticks around for 2022—it probably will - Motor Trend

The 2022 Honda Accord should deliver 30 MPG in the city and 38 miles to the gallon out on the highway, with the FWD setup. The AWD Accord, on the other hand, will bring those figures down to 29 and 35 MPG in the city and highway respectively. Opt for the 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, and the figures are rated at 23 MPG in the city and 34 miles to the gallon out on the highway. Since this car hasn’t undergone any changes in the powertrain, it will have the same figures as its 2021 model. The fuel tank capacity of the 2022 Accord remains the same as its predecessor, i.e. 14.8 gallons, which is sufficient for a family sedan.

Then there is the 2022 Accord hybrid on offer too, as it manages to deliver 48 MPG in the city with the base trims, whereas the top Touring trim is rated at 44 MPG. All cars in the competition offer more or less similar fuel economy. But when it comes to range, the Nissan Altima takes the podium 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

9.0/10

We have no reason to believe the Accord's passenger or cargo space would change for the 2022 model year - Motor Trend

The interior of the 2022 Honda Accord has the potential to make you fall for it at the very first glance, despite its low expected price of  $25,500. The interior 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.

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 won’t get any changes in the cargo capacity front. 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 cabin 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. Though the Hyundai Sonata is slightly more spacious than the 2022 Honda Accord, it is the final comfort and fitting that matters, and that is where the Honda Accord shines. It even leaves behind its Japanese counterparts such as Toyota and Nissan.

2022 Honda Accord Exterior

7.0/10

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. As the 2021 Accord iteration did get a mild styling refresh, in the form of a new front grille, new alloy wheels, and new exterior color schemes, the 2022 Accord will carry forward those same changes without bringing about anything extra.

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 into designing the exterior because of which it looks very expensive at the very first glance, although it is very affordable.

All cars in the competition have almost similar dimensions, while Accord is significantly wider. When comparing the curb weight of the sedans, Honda Accord is the lightest of the lot, hence its competitive acceleration times. In the ground clearance, again Honda Accord offers the most at 5.8 inches. Some of the key exterior features of this car are mentioned below-

  • LED Brakelights
  • Chrome Grille
  • Speed Sensitive Variable Intermittent Wipers
  • Auto On/Off Projector beams
  • Alloy wheels
  • Dual chrome exhaust tips

2022 Honda Accord Safety

7.5/10

Honda as a brand has kept on evolving its safety quotient 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. Moreover, coming to the crash tests too, the 2021 iteration did get the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ and the NHTSA 5-star rating. We can also expect the same from the 2022 Accord as well. 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

6.0/10

2022 Honda Accord vs 2022 Toyota Camry

Both of these cars share a deeply laden rivalry every year. 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 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 driving 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, however, the Camry feels slightly better than Accord, but the driving dynamics, responsive feedback of the latter are still unmatched. So we'll still stick with the 2022 Honda Accord, despite it not getting any major updates.
