2014 Honda Accord review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2014 Honda Accord?

The 2014 Honda Accord is a mid-size car that's available as a coupe or sedan. It competes with the Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima. Available sedan trim levels include the LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Touring. The Honda Accord coupe is available in LX-S, EX and EX-L trims, and a V-6 engine is available in the EX-L trim and standard in the Touring. The Honda Accord Hybrid is covered separately.

What's New on the 2014 Honda Accord?

For 2014, the Honda Accord LX includes premium upholstery.

How Does the 2014 Honda Accord Compare to Other Mid-Size Cars?

The Accord is offered as a coupe, but its competitors are available only as sedans. In addition, the Accord sedan has better fuel economy than the Chevrolet Malibu, Toyota Camry and most Ford Fusion models, but the Nissan Altima is more efficient among four-cylinder models. While the Ford Fusion and Toyota Camry have a slightly lower starting price, the Camry's interior isn't as nice.

What Features on the 2014 Honda Accord Are Most Important?

The 2014 Honda Accord is offered with a 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine or a 278-hp, 3.5-liter V-6. All models are front-wheel drive. The Sport sedan trim increases the power output to 189 hp. Models equipped with a four-cylinder engine can be outfitted with a six-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission. The V-6 comes standard with a six-speed automatic.

Significant standard features include 16-inch alloy wheels, a chrome exhaust tip, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, seating for five, an 8-inch infotainment screen, USB/iPod compatibility and Bluetooth connectivity. Available features include foglights, full-LED headlights, a trunklid spoiler, power moonroof, 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels, a navigation system, heated leather seats and power front seats.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags, an electronic stability system with traction control and a backup camera. The Accord can be equipped with forward collision warning, lane departure warning and a LaneWatch system.

Should I Buy the 2014 Honda Accord?

The 2014 Honda Accord is a good choice if you value a well-designed interior, strong crash-test ratings and a quiet cabin. In addition, strong visibility and a wealth of standard features make it easy to recommend. However, the V-6 version of the Accord coupe is underpowered, and all models suffer from underwhelming steering feel. The folding backseat isn't split, and the sedan's trunk opening is small compared with other brands.

Love My 2014 Honda LX, Hate My Local Dealership

I purchased the Accord LX new in October 2014. Overjoyed with the fact that I found this with a manual transmission. After 6 years of ownership and 68K miles later, I'm still very pleased with the car give or take a few hiccups. Disappointed that after 2020, the Accord will no longer be produced with a manual transmission as an option. Summer 2018: Took a road trip to SC and discovered my AC was no longer working, and was blowing lukewarm air. Got a can of the recharge stuff and fixed it myself. First time in my Honda ownership that the AC has crapped out on me. January 2021: Smelled burning oil and discovered my oil was very low in vehicle. Took to Honda dealership and was told I have a valve cover gasket leak. Shocked because I'm never had gasket issues of any kind in my previous Hondas. Another Honda ownership first. Everything else has been routine maintenance. Change oil, rotate tires. 1 new battery in Jan. 2021. Had to have new brakes put on all around and swap out brake fluid in Feb 2021. That's the first major money I've spent on the car. Fixing gasket issue next month but local mechanic said it's not a major concern. Other than that, the car has been a trooper. Minor complaints about seat/door materials getting a white filmy substance from my elbow resting on the window ledge. All Hondas could use lumbar support in lower trims. Plenty of leg room for rear passengers. I typically stick with the entry level trims. Less stuff to go wrong.
