2020 Honda Accord review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Honda Accord?

The Accord is Honda’s five-seat mid-size family sedan. Now in its 10th generation, the front-wheel-drive Accord comes with a standard 192-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine or an available 252-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. A six-speed manual transmission is available for both engines. The 1.5-liter engine can also work with a continuously variable automatic transmission while the 2.0-liter engine can pair with a 10-speed automatic. There’s also an efficient Accord Hybrid with a two-motor hybrid powertrain that incorporates a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and gets an EPA-estimated 48 mpg combined. Competitors include the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima and Chevrolet Malibu.

What’s New on the 2020 Honda Accord?

There are no significant changes this year.

What Features in the 2020 Honda Accord Are Most Important?

Standard features include push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control and a multimedia system with a 7-inch screen; an available 8-inch touchscreen system adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Other options include a head-up display, upgraded audio systems, navigation, wireless device charging, leather-trimmed seats, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats.

Standard active safety features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and automatic high-beam headlights. Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and front and rear parking sensors are optional.

2020 Honda Accord Vs. 2020 Toyota Camry: How Do They Compare?

The Accord and Camry long have been popular choices in the family sedan class. The Accord has been the sportier, better-driving sedan of the two, but the Camry closed the gap considerably with its latest redesign. Both cars offer fuel-efficient gas-electric hybrid variants, but if you want a V-6 engine you’ll need to look at the Camry; the Accord doesn’t offer one.

Should I Buy the 2020 Honda Accord?

The Accord is an impressive mid-size sedan — it beat the Camry and Altima in a Cars.com comparison test — that packs a wealth of standard safety features. Both the gas-only and hybrid versions drive well, and the available turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder delivers strong acceleration. Interior quality is a bit inconsistent and ride quality is busy with the available 19-inch wheels, but the Accord is nonetheless a worthy contender in the mid-size class.

Great certified vehicle. Best way to buy used car

Great car. Gas mileage is excellent. Wish interior was a lighter. I would also like to have the safety features a little bit easier to know if activated or not.

Honda Accord Sport. Awesome!!

I purchased a used 2020 Honda Accord Sport and love it. 41 to 48 miles per gallon. Runs and rides awesome. Always wanted one and will stick with Hondas going forward.

Glad I bought this car

This is the "bottom of the line" 1.5L Turbo Accord and it regularly gets over 40 mpg on the highway. If you need power in a hurry, stomp the gas and feel the turbo kick in. The seats are a little low but what can you expect when the car design is so sleek? It holds the road like no car I've ever owned and is very responsive accelerating or just driving. Road noise can be a nuisance but the ride is smooth. I personally don't like the screen interface sticking out of the dashboard and I think all levels of Accord should come with an electric driver's seat. The paint job is great, the car looks great, and it is a real value for your money
