2015 Honda Accord Sedan Test Drive

The 2015 Honda Accord sedan is in an area of the market where mild-mannered family sedans are prepared to do battle. With decades of evolution under its belt, the Honda Accord strives to provide a unique blend of style, function, economy and pricing and attract a wide range of buyers. And with all of the various trims build on this ninth-generation Accord chassis, this is a vehicle that can be equipped in such a way as to please nearly everyone.

Powered by either the i-VTEC 2.4-liter 4-cylinder or 3.5-liter V6, the Accord is offered in six trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L V6 and the Touring. Pricing ranges from an entry-level MSRP of $22,105 up to the range-topping Touring at $33,630. Our tester was the well-equipped $33,630 Touring with the potent 278 horsepower i-VTEC V6 motor. With the 4-cylinder having slightly better city fuel economy (21 MPG versus 24 MPG), the V6 incredibly still boasts the same 34 MPG highway as the smaller powerplant with the manual transmission. The Accord is also offered with Hybrid and a Plug-In Hybrid powertrains that offer outstanding fuel economy.

While the V6 models are only available with a 6-speed automatic, the 4-cylinder models can be ordered with a 6-speed manual transmission. A more economical CVT is available on the 4-cylinder trims that boasts fuel economy figures of 27 MPG city and 31 MPG highway.

A solid blend of technology, style and economy, the Accord model range fills many vehicle needs for both individuals and families across the country.
