While the 2015 Honda Accord is already one of our most popular models in the Metro Detroit area, if you’re the kind of driver that likes your mid-size sedan to have an extra kick, consider the EX-L V6 or Touring trim levels. Both of these trims have traded in the four-cylinder of the basic model for a 3.5L V6, and while you’ll barely notice the difference in fuel economy, we think you’ll be blown away by the increased performance.
Plenty of Power
Under the hood of each of these V6 Accord models is a 278-hp 3.5L SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine that is capable of 252 lb-ft of torque. By taking advantage of Variable Cylinder Management and switching off as many as three cylinders while cruising, the engine is able to have one of the best fuel economies of its kind without sacrificing the performance you need.
While many drivers choose the standard Accord for its efficiency, the 2015 Accord EX-L V6 and Touring models earn an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 34 mpg,* which is a very small price to pay for a very large return on horsepower and torque.
More Than an Engine
When you drive an upgraded Accord, you get more than just the high-end engine. Both the EX-L V6 and Touring trims have some of the best automotive features on the road, including:
- HomeLink remote system
- Next-generation HondaLink telematics
- 8-inch touchscreen interface
- Honda LaneWatch
- Honda Smart Entry and push-button ignition
- Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio
- Leather upholstery with front heated seating
Honda even has a satellite-linked navigation system with voice commands available, letting you have high-power, high-class, and high-tech all in one sedan.
