2014 Honda Accord Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
