Vehicle Overview Following some notable revisions last year, the 2017 Honda Accord is essentially a carryover model, and an aging one at that. Even so, most of the midsize-sedan segment is still playing catchup. The current Accord is arguably Honda at its finest. It scores highly in just about every category, and unlike many rivals, it's a genuine pleasure to drive. If you're looking for a family sedan that does it all, the 2017 Accord's across-the-board excellence simply cannot be ignored.
Of course, there's always room for improvement, and that's most apparent in the Accord's so-so touchscreen interface (standard from the EX on up), which isn't as user-friendly as one might expect from the brand. The Honda Sensing safety suite is also an acquired taste, especially its alarmist collision warning system. But Honda Sensing is optional on all but the top-level Touring trim, so you're generally not stuck with it, and a mediocre touchscreen is perhaps a small price to pay for the Accord's outstanding driving dynamics and spacious interior, among other strengths. Resale value is top of class, too, which makes the Accord extra appealing if you're planning to buy one and hang onto it for a while.
The Accord is also sold as a coupe, and it's the only midsize, front-wheel-drive coupe in this price range, though you might consider the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro as sportier, less-practical alternatives. It's a different story with the Accord sedan, as the midsize segment is one of the most hotly contested you'll find. Standout rivals include the sporty and high-tech Ford Fusion, the value-packed Hyundai Sonata and the roomy and refined Volkswagen Passat, while the freshly redesigned Chevrolet Malibu also merits consideration. But the 2017 Honda Accord continues to be one of the very best cars of its kind.
Performance and MPG All 2017 Accords are front-wheel drive, and most are fitted with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. This engine is rated at 185 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. The Sport trim level's less restrictive exhaust system boosts output to 189 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque.
LX, Sport, Sport Special Edition and EX sedans (and LX-S and EX coupes) without the Honda Sensing package come standard with a six-speed manual transmission. Optional for those trims and standard on the rest of the lineup is a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which takes the place of a conventional automatic.
The Accord's available 3.5-liter V6 is rated at 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. A conventional six-speed automatic is the only transmission offered.
According to EPA fuel economy estimates, all CVT-equipped four-cylinder Accords but the Sport should return 30 mpg combined (27 mpg city/36 mpg highway), while the Sport rates slightly lower, at 29 mpg combined (26 city/34 highway). With the manual transmission, the four-cylinder Accord stands at 26 mpg combined (23 city/32 highway).
As for the automatic Accord V6, it's nearly as frugal as the manual four-cylinder, checking in at 25 mpg combined (21 city/33 highway). The automatic V6 coupe drops a tick to 24 mpg combined (21 city/32 highway). With the manual, the V6 coupe brings up the rear at 21 mpg combined (18 city/28 highway).
Even with the base four-cylinder engine and CVT -- the most popular powertrain choice for Honda Accord buyers -- performance is relatively strong. In Edmunds testing, a four-cylinder Accord EX sedan with the CVT sprinted from zero to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds, a quick time for the class. Opt for the V6 and you'll have one of the fastest cars in the segment, as a Touring sedan needed just 6.1 seconds in our testing to hit 60 mph.
Safety Every 2017 Honda Accord comes with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, active front head restraints, front seat side airbags and side curtain airbags. A rearview camera is also standard across the board. Standard on EX and above is the LaneWatch blind-spot system, which switches the 7.7-inch screen's display to a low and wide view of the car's passenger side when the right turn signal is engaged. Note that the Sport, Sport SE and Touring sedans, as well as the Touring coupe, have larger front brakes.
Lane departure warning, lane and road departure intervention, forward collision warning and forward collision intervention with automatic braking are included with the Honda Sensing package (standard on Accord Touring). Although the availability of these features across the lineup is rare and laudable, the systems themselves aren't as good as those of some rivals. The forward collision alert is hypersensitive, annoyingly and frequently setting off its "Brake!" alarm in instances where other such systems would not cry wolf. The adaptive cruise control is also too quick to apply the brakes, too slow to speed back up again and generally not very good at maintaining a constant speed.
In government crash testing, the Accord sedan received five out of five stars for overall protection, with four stars for total frontal impact safety and five stars for total side-impact safety. The coupe earned five stars across the board. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave both body styles the best possible rating of "Good" in its moderate-overlap and small-overlap frontal-offset impact tests, as well as a "Good" rating in the side-impact, roof-strength and seat/head restraint (whiplash protection) tests. The Accord's frontal collision intervention system also earned a top IIHS rating of "Superior" for its effectiveness.
In Edmunds testing, an Accord sedan with the V6 engine braked from 60 mph to a stop in 116 feet, one of the shortest stopping distances we've recorded for a midsize sedan.
Additional Information The 2017 Honda Accord remains a perennial favorite among shoppers in the fiercely competitive midsize sedan and coupe market segment. And with good reason. Perhaps not particularly outstanding in any one area, the Accord gets very few checks in the negative column, offering an attractive balance of pleasing style, intelligent interior packaging, a comfortable ride and outstanding reliability.
The 2017 Accord is primarily a carryover model after significant revisions for 2016, and the only major change for this model year is the addition of the Accord Sport Special Edition. This new take on the previous Sport model adds heated leather seats and special trim to the Sport's already tweaked horsepower, unique alloy wheels and other features.
The standard Accord powerplant is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower (189 hp in the two Sport versions) and 181 pound-feet of torque and comes mated to either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission. An optional 3.5-liter V6 puts out 278 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. The standard four-cylinder model, which handily outperforms most of its competitors, is favored by the majority of Accord buyers. And those who opt for the V6 will find extra levels of performance and smoothness.
Although not especially exciting, the Accord's exterior design is free of gimmickry, effectively striking a balance between elegance and functionality. The sculptured aluminum hood, LED lighting, and modernized front and rear ends from the 2016 update remain in place. Although some shoppers may find that the styling falls short on a wow factor, the Accord's sales figures indicate that it works well for large numbers of buyers.
Still, it's the interior that probably remains the Accord's strong suit. Although comparable to its competitors on the outside, the Accord provides drivers and passengers with an impressive amount of headroom, legroom and shoulder room in both the front and rear, as well as comfort and convenience features that rival those of any other model in its class. Quality materials abound, and one of the quietest cabins in the segment helps enhance the ride experience.
Fuel economy for the base four-cylinder engine equipped with the automatic transmission is rated by the EPA at 30 mpg in combined driving (27 city/36 highway). The six-cylinder option is rated at a combined 25 mpg (21 city/33 highway).
Even the base Accord LX comes equipped with a host of convenience and safety features, while the EX, EX-L and Touring models ramp up the comfort and luxury. Buyers looking for a bit more oomph might want to check out the extra performance and handling offered by the Sport and Sport Special Edition models. Whatever your particular needs, let Edmunds help find the perfect 2017 Honda Accord for you.

Vehicle EX w/Honda Sensing 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
Review I've owned this vehicle for seven months now, and so far it seems to be a good investment. Driving is easy, and acceleration is very smooth: engine RPMs barely get above 3k when accelerating from a stop light, and the car gets up to speed easily with very little struggle (compared to my previous 2013 hybrid that red lined while accelerating to 45 mph). The interior is very quiet and comfortable with good visibility. Love the Honda sensing with the camera on the passenger side - very helpful when passing vehicles on the highway or making sure you're parking close enough to the curb. I wish I had a camera on the driver's side as well! Adaptive cruise control works great - the furthest distance setting provides a very comfortable 3-second following range which is a bit far in some driving situations. The closest distance setting is also comfortable, giving about a one-second following distance. Love the lane keeping system - when off, it gives you a visual warning when you are departing your lane; when on, it helps to gently guide you to the center of your lane - the car almost drives by itself! And the lane departure is a gentle reminder - some cars I test drove nagged at you when you started to leave your lane, and the loud notification beeps were quite distracting. It has pretty good smartphone integration - if I plug my Android phone into the USB port, I can use Google navigation that's on my phone (and it automatically shows up on the console screen) - that saved me a few hundred bucks since I didn't have to buy the trim with navigation (and Google maps is generally more user-friendly than most car navigation systems). I also have access to music on my phone and Amazon music. You can also use Pandora or other streaming services or use Honda's "A-Ha" music app. I can get phone calls through the car speakers, and the system will even read texts & give me the option to provide a voice reply. Android Auto will also read my emails to me once the vehicle is parked. Overall, very good technology and integration that I've only just begun to explore. Other notes: - Fold down rear seats are only operable from the trunk, and you can't access the trunk from the back seat. This provides the opportunity to securely lock the trunk so the valet driver can't get in without the key. You can also lock out the glove compartment so you need the physical key to get in. - Rear seat room is comfortable, even for a 6'3" adult. - This trim level has two center dashboard screens - the upper screen cycles between music info, trip info, or an uploaded photo & clock. You also have the option to combine music info and trip info on the same screen. The lower touch screen displays music, cell phone, Android Auto features (e.g. navigation) & trip info (trip mph and duration, including previous trips) - seems a bit redundant though to have some of the same info displayed on both the upper and lower screens. - Below the bottom touch screen are simple, easy to operate dual-zone climate controls that keep the passenger compartment very comfortable. - Car has a number of driving modes. The transmission itself has "Drive" and "S" (which I assume means "Sport," but it's not defined in the owner's manual as such). "S" gives a little more power for faster starts, probably at the expense of fuel economy at highway speeds. "S" is also used for models with paddle shifters, for towing, for increased engine braking, or in hilly terrain. Drive, I assume, gives you the advertised 185 hp and 181 ft-lbs torque. You also have an "Econ" button: Econ mode restricts both the climate system and engine power to maximize fuel economy. The A/C doesn't blow as hard, and it takes a bit longer to cool the vehicle on warm days. I suppose you could drive in Sport mode with Econ activated, but it seems like it would be counter productive. I generally leave the car in drive with Econ mode activated, and it seems to do fine, even on the hottest summer days. I've had no problem with acceleration or speed while in Econ mode, though I've noticed that with cruise control on, the vehicle slows a bit when going up hills, and it doesn't return to the ordered speed as aggressively. I suppose if you want something a little more responsive, either don't use Econ mode, drive with the transmission in "Sport," or buy the V-6 or sport model. With about 5000 miles on the car, I'm getting about the advertised 30 combined mpg (advertised at 27/36 mpg & 30 mpg combined). Most of my driving is on the highway, and I've seem mpg up to 42 mpg. Yesterday, I turned off Econ mode and still got 36 mpg highway. Overall, a very good mid-size sedan. While it doesn't have all the luxury features that are out there, it is very well equipped, and very well made. And if buying a domestic vehicle is on your agenda, my previous Ford was built in Mexico, but this Honda was built in Ohio. I probably put more groceries on tables in America with this car purchase than with my "domestic" Ford.
