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.

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.
