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.

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.

Continued quality

This is my second Honda Accord. Top notch. I recommend to all my friends. It is dependable, extremely safe, economical on gas and looks very sporty. I really like the Honda family.

Reliable Beast

This is my first Honda. 1.5 liter engine has more pep and power than my prior car which had more horses. although it is a midsize, when you climb inside it feels like a large. The seats are extraordinarily comfortable. POV is excellent and the infotainment does not disappoint. Because I have the base sport model I do not have remote start. Which is strange as you can buy the exl fob, program it and bam you have remote start.

Worst car ever owned!

This car is crap! Bought it brand new with 0 miles. At 5,000 miles it starts making a grinding /humming noise. I have all the warranties they say nothing they can do because they can’t duplicate the problem at dealership! Wow Also acceleration is horrible
