The 2014 Honda Accord earns good marks from professional car reviewers for its spacious interior, good fuel economy and handling that's sportier than many other mid-size sedans.
I am Jim Sharifi, Senior Editor for US News Best Cars. Should the Honda Accord be your first choice in the competitive mid-size car class, let's find out!
The Honda Accord was redesigned for the 2013 model year and moves into 2014 with few changes. It's available as a Sedan or Coupe and comes standard with a 4-cylinder engine. A 6 feet manual transmission is standard, although a continuously variable transmission or CVT is also available.
Fuel economy is an EPA estimated 27 miles per gallon in the city and 36 on the highway which is good for the class. The Accord comes in several trims with a base price starting at about $22,000. The 2014 Accord is also available as a hybrid or a plug-in hybrid.
Reviewers say that the Accord's 4-cylinder engine should be adequate for most buyers but that the optional 6-cylinder engine makes the Accord feel much quicker. Both the manual transmission and CVT get good reviews with several experts saying that the CVT feels particularly smooth and refined.
When it comes to handling, test drivers say that the Accord feels sportier than many affordable mid-sized cars, but some point out that its ride can be a little harsh. The interior of the Accord earns good marks with simple design and high quality materials. In both the Sedan and Coupe, reviewers say that the front seats are roomy and comfortable. They also remark that the Sedan's back seats are among the most spacious in the class. Experts also praise the Accord's controls and tech features for being straight forward and easy to use.
