Edmunds' Expert Review
No other sedan puts together all the elements of a family car as well as the 2006 Honda Accord.
Unlike many automakers that launch a new car and leave it to molder for nearly a decade, Honda prefers to keep its vehicles fresh and competitive. So even though the previous 1998-to-2002 Honda Accord was quite fine by any measure, Honda made substantial changes in 2003 to create the seventh-generation Accord model.
Two advanced engines were made available: a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and an extensively revised 3.0-liter V6. Both gained more peak power and torque than their predecessors, as well as improved midrange performance, lower emissions and improved fuel economy. For underpinnings, Honda decided to stick with the previous-generation Accord's double-wishbone suspension front and rear. Modifications in front amounted to revised geometry to suppress body movements during cornering, braking and acceleration. In back, similar changes were employed, along with increased rear subframe stiffness. The result was a tighter ride with less thump and thrum from the underpinnings.
Inside, the 2006 Honda Accord is furnished with attractive, high-quality materials assembled to exacting standards. The stylish cockpit is almost flawless when it comes to ergonomics, and the seats are carefully designed to provide a middle-of-the-road compromise of cushioning and support. In back, the Honda Accord ties with the Camry for best-in-class rear-seat accommodations, and the seat design is such that just about any child's car seat can be installed with minimal hassle. Large cupholders, thoughtfully designed storage areas and a surprisingly good sound system round out the Accord's family-friendly package.
For 2005, Honda introduced the Accord Hybrid, which features the company's third-generation IMA electric assist system matched with a gasoline V6 power plant, making it the most powerful and elite Accord in the lineup. The hybrid works by capturing electrical energy during braking or deceleration and using that energy to help power the vehicle. In addition, the system features the ability to shut off the engine during vehicle stops for further efficiency gains. Combined peak output for the hybrid powertrain is 253 hp, and the EPA gives the Accord Hybrid a fuel economy rating of 25 city/34 highway. This is a good rating for a V6, but it's about the same mileage as a four-cylinder Accord gets. The Hybrid's V6 engine also features a Variable Cylinder Management system (VCM) that can deactivate three of the engine's six cylinders during cruising and deceleration with no impact to vehicle performance or passenger comfort.
Overall, you won't find a more balanced package in the family sedan segment. With its inviting interior, amicable on-road demeanor and exemplary build and materials quality, the 2006 Honda Accord is an easy car to like. Add in Honda's reputation for exceptional reliability and high resale value, and you can't lose. If you're shopping for a practical midsize sedan or coupe this year, make sure the Honda Accord is on your short list.
Trim levels & features
The 2006 Honda Accord comes as a two-door coupe or a four-door sedan. Available trim levels include VP (Value Package, sedan only), LX, LX Special Edition, EX and Accord Hybrid. The VP provides air conditioning, power windows and locks, a CD stereo, keyless entry and cruise control. The LX adds an upgraded audio system and power mirrors. LX Special Edition models include 16-inch alloy wheels, rear disc brakes, a six-disc CD changer and steering wheel-mounted controls. V6-equipped LX models gain 17-inch wheels, heated mirrors, a moonroof and a power driver seat. The four-cylinder EX is equipped much like the LX, though leather seating is optional. EX V6 and Hybrid models come with standard leather, dual power front seats with heaters, satellite radio and automatic dual-zone climate control; a navigation system is optional.
Performance & mpg
Most Honda Accord models come with either a 166-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline four or a 244-hp, 3.0-liter V6. Select the Accord Hybrid, which pairs an electric motor with the standard V6, and you'll get a combined 253 hp and 232 lb-ft of torque and a 25 city/34 highway EPA rating (best in the lineup). Four-cylinder engines are available with a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission that routes power to the front wheels, while V6 Accords take either the automatic or a six-speed manual. The Hybrid sedan is automatic only.
Antilock brakes are standard on all Honda Accords, and side and head curtain airbags are either standard or optional, depending on the trim. Stability control is standard only on V6 models. In government crash testing, the 2006 Honda Accord received a perfect five stars for frontal-impact protection. Four stars were awarded for protection of front occupants in side impacts; side-impact protection for rear occupants rates five stars for the coupe and four stars for the sedan. In IIHS testing, the Honda Accord earned a "Good" rating (the best possible) for frontal-offset crash safety; in side-impact tests, it received a "Good" rating when equipped with side airbags and a "Poor" rating (the lowest) without them.
With 253 hp available, the 2006 Honda Accord Hybrid can out-accelerate about any other family car; however, most buyers will be perfectly content with the power and refinement of the four-cylinder engine. The Accord's steering has a slick, precise feel and the suspension provides a comfortable ride as well as decent levels of road grip while cornering, though sharper-handling cars like the Altima or Mazda 6 are more entertaining to drive. Brake feel is reassuring, though the Accord's stopping distances are a bit longer than we'd like.
Honda tailored the Accord's interior to meet the needs of the American family. The seating arrangements are top-notch, and the interior design and materials quality continue the high-caliber standards established by previous-generation Accord models. The car's backseat is among the roomiest in the segment, and our only complaint is that the trunk is a bit smaller than that of some peers.

Should I lease or buy a 2006 Honda Accord?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
