Practical and sporty, the 2017 Honda Accord is the ultimate mid-size car. From the moment you slide behind the wheel, a feeling of being connected with the vehicle takes hold. Passengers will truly appreciate the ample interior space, plus numerous conveniences which abound. Sophisticated exterior looks are the icing on the cake, ensuring the Accord is dressed to impress, no matter where you travel.
For 2017, Honda makes the Accord as a sedan or coupe. Six different trim levels ensure you get a car matched perfectly to your needs and wants. A number of different options and accessories are available, further enhancing this solid vehicle.
Two different engines are available. First up is a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder good for 185 horsepower and 181 lb.-ft. of torque. Even more capability is provided by the available 3.5-liter V-6, which is rated at a solid 278 horsepower and 252 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines use i-VTEC technology to conserve fuel. The four-cylinder comes with direct fuel injection, while the V-6 uses a multi-point setup. Incredible response comes via a drive-by-wire throttle. Active noise cancellation and active sound control help ensure you can hear music or conversations while traveling, instead of the engine.
A six-speed manual transmission is standard on most trims with the four-cylinder engine, while a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is available for more effortless driving. V-6 models use a six-speed automatic transmission with a sport mode, increasing performance and responsiveness.
The sporty, precise handling you feel with the 2017 Honda Accord comes in part from the MacPherson front strut and multi-link rear suspension. An electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering setup, plus antilock brakes further enhance the car.
Just as important, Honda has engineered the Accord with safety in mind. The first line of defense involves numerous active systems, which are designed to prevent accidents. Electronic brake distribution, brake assist, tire pressure monitoring and a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines are included on each trim. Daytime running lights are as well, which use LED technology on all but the base LX version of the car. Collision mitigation braking, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control and road departure mitigation can be added, further protecting against incident. Honda Lane Watch is included on the EX and higher trims.
As a second line of defense, passive designs guard against serious injury in a crash. An advanced compatibility engineering (ACE) body structure is made to soften the blow of a wreck. The standard airbag setup includes not only side curtains for both rows, but also SmartVent front side bags.
Every day you drive the Accord, comforts and useful conveniences will make it an experience you love. The standard dual-zone automatic climate control system means drivers and front passengers can find individual settings they alone prefer. Cruise control, front and rear cupholders, a sunglasses holder and a rear window defroster are included on all trims. The standard sound system includes Bluetooth connectivity, speed-sensitive volume control, a text message manager and Pandora compatibility. To enhance the car further, you can opt for a self-dimming rearview mirror, leather upholstery, heated seats, satellite radio and more.
