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.

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.
