If there’s one thing that the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan is known for, it’s fuel economy. The Accord Sedan’s LX, Sport, Sport Special Edition, and EX trim levels each come standard with a 2.4L In-Line 4 engine and a responsive 6-speed manual transmission. These models get an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.** Many drivers, however, will find that the Accord Sedan’s continuously variable transmission better suits their needs as a driver. It’s available on all the trims we’ve mentioned so far, and it even comes standard on the EX-L! LX, EX, and EX-L CVT models will all get an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.** The Accord Sedan’s aggressive Sport and Sport Special Edition trims offer an EPA-estimated 26 city mpg and 34 highway mpg.**
Detroit area drivers who prioritize power over fuel economy can choose to upgrade their Accord Sedan to its EX-L V6 or its Touring trim levels! These builds come standard with 6-speed automatic transmissions and 3.5L engines, and what they lack in gas mileage, they more than make up for in assertiveness and energy. Fuel economy estimates for the EX-L V6 and Touring models are similar to those for manual Accord Sedans: each 3.5L build provides an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.**
Drivers who take the time to explore their options will be able to choose an Accord Sedan that offers the exact amount of power that they desire. The 2.4L Inline-4 engine that comes in the LX, EX, and EX-L Accord Sedan trim levels gives drivers control over 185 hp at 6,400 rpm and 181 lb-ft of torque at just 3,900 rpm! Sport and Sport Special Edition models are equipped with the same engine block, but their power ratings are slightly higher than those of the non-Sport trims. Here, drivers will enjoy 189 hp at 6,400 rpm, and 182 lb-ft of torque at 3,900 rpm. Some Detroit area drivers will no doubt gravitate toward the Accord Sedan’s high-powered EX-L V6 and Touring trim levels. As noted above, these options offer a 3.5L V6 engine that offers more horsepower and torque than you’ll know what to do with! A writer at Edmunds.com agrees: “Acceleration and braking are among the segment best with the V6 model being quicker than many base model luxury sedans.” Each gets 278 hp at 6,200 rpm, and 252 lb-ft of torque at 4,900 rpm. We should also note that these last two trim options come standard with multi-point fuel injection and variable cylinder management, which help to maximize your drivetrain’s power in real-world conditions.
No matter which Honda Accord Sedan trim level you choose, you’ll receive safety features like Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, electronic brake distribution, and a tire pressure monitoring system.
