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.
