What Is the 2017 Honda Accord?
The 2017 Honda Accord is a five-seat mid-size car that's available as a coupe or a sedan. It competes with the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima and Ford Fusion, among others. The 2017 Honda Accord is available in eight trim levels: LX, LX-S, Sport, Sport SE, EX, EX-L, EX-L V6 and Touring V6. The LX-S is a two-door coupe, and the EX, EX-L, EX-L V6 and the Touring V6 are available as a four-door sedan or a two-door coupe. The Accord also comes in hybrid form, which is covered separately.
What's New on the 2017 Honda Accord?
For 2017, the Accord now has a Sport Special Edition that's slotted in between the Sport and EX trim levels. It features Special Edition badges as well as heated leather seats.
What Features in the 2017 Honda Accord Are Most Important?
The 2017 Honda Accord has a standard 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available continuously variable automatic transmission. The Sport models deliver 189 hp. An optional 278-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. Significant standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, cruise control and a backup camera. As required in every new vehicle, the Honda Accord comes with front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.
Significant available features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, full LED headlights, a navigation system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, power moonroof, power front seats, heated leather seats, lane departure warning with steering assist and the LaneWatch camera system that displays adjacent traffic.
Should I Buy the 2017 Honda Accord?
Shoppers looking for a mid-size sedan or coupe will appreciate the refined drivetrains that the 2017 Honda Accord offers. You'll get good gas mileage and this car offers good visibility as well as plenty of standard features. That being said, the Sport and Touring models deliver a firm ride, and when the time comes to equip your car, there are fewer luxury options than some competitors. While passenger space is good, the cargo opening with the backseats folded is narrow, and some trim levels have arduous touch-sensitive controls.
