The Honda Accord offers surprisingly nimble handling and sprightly performance. For 2016, the Accord gets minor styling revisions and additional safety features.
A mainstay midsize sedan since the days when there were far fewer competitors, this ninth-generation Honda Accord was launched as a 2008 model to compete with a racy Ford Fusion, a stylish Chrysler 200, a sporty Nissan Altima and Mazda 6, and a feature-filled Hyundai Sonata.
Changes to the 2016 Honda Accord consist of a bolder grille, reshaped aluminum hood, and redesigned taillamps with LED brake lights. (Also, the Hybrid model has been discontinued.)
Honda Sensing, a package of driver assistance programs, is new to the 2016 Accord. Honda Sensing includes collision warning and braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, road departure mitigation, and adaptive cruise control.
The base engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with direct injection making 185 horsepower. The four-cylinder is available with a 6-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission that feels like an automatic. The four-cylinder with the CVT is EPA-rated at 27/37 mpg City/Highway.
There’s also a V6, with a 6-speed automatic transmission, rated at 278 horsepower and 21/34 mpg.
Accord’s safety ratings are strong. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives both the Accord sedan and coupe five stars overall, with four stars for the sedan in the frontal crash. The 2015 Accord earned the top Good ratings from the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).
