The playful and engaging Accord offers more than you’d expect, no matter how much you spend. A 185-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder and six-speed manual are standard in both the coupe and sedan; Sport models get a slight bump to 189 hp. A CVT is optional as is a 278-hp 3.5-liter V-6 paired to a six-speed automatic; you can get a six-speed manual on the coupe. EX and above models feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but some may find the button-less infotainment system annoying and fussy – Car and Driver

Honda Sensing is a sophisticated set of passive and active safety features, including Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, Road Departure Mitigation and Adaptive Cruise Control. These technologies are just starting to trickle down from the premium brands to the popular brands, and that’s a good thing. I’m a big fan of Adaptive Cruise Control, especially on long drives or in stop-and-go traffic – Forbes.com

I’ve just listed nine rivals for the 2016 Honda Accord, and yet the Accord may never notice it has competition. It’s been leading the sales charge for years now. Why? After spending some seat time in the 2016 Accord, I’ve concluded that Honda’s money-printing sedan, through the combination of body styles and trim levels, is the rover of its segment: competent in every category a midsize sedan consumer would value — but confined to its generalist designation

Honda declares that it has tweaked the handling and steering feel for a more dynamic ride, quieted the cabin, made the chassis more rigid and the body more aerodynamic, improved the ride comfort, and further modernized the safety and convenience technology.

The 2016 model year Accord is easy to distinguish thanks to its revised front and rear fascia, with styling inspired by the 10th generation Civic concept. LED headlights, turn signals, and taillights, optional 19-inch wheels, and a more steeply descending hood freshen the new Accord’s appearance. There are also three new exterior colors for the sedan: Kona Coffee, Lunar Silver, and San Morino Red, and two new colors for the coupe: deep-opal metallic and lunar silver – Digital Trends
