2016 Honda Accord Buyer's Guide

The Honda Accord is a mid-size car available as either a 2-door Coupe or a 4-door Sedan. The Honda Accord does everything well, but doesn’t stand out in any particular aspect. Other cars in the class may be more attractive, more comfortable, handle better, or get better fuel economy, but as a complete package the Accord is hard to beat. The interior is quite roomy, though as expected the rear of the Coupe is a bit tighter than the sedan. The Accord was redesigned for 2013 and receives a minor refresh for 2016 that includes a new front end treatment, suspension tweaks, and updates to the infotainment system (including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on some versions). Unfortunately, the Hybrid model is no longer available.

What makes it move?
