Honda Accord is among the best of a crop of superb midsize cars. Accord comes in four-door sedan and two-door coupe versions and offers a wide variety of engine and transmission choices for different types of buyers and budgets.
For 2014, an all-new Accord Hybrid sedan joins the line boasting an EPA-estimated 50 mpg City rating from a smooth, advanced two-motor gas-electric hybrid powertrain. Completely redesigned and re-engineered for the 2013 model year, the rest of the Accord lineup carries over unchanged.
The 2014 Honda Accord comes standard with a 185-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. It’s a smooth, enjoyable engine and, on Accord sedans, gets an EPA-estimated 27/36 mpg City/Highway with the CVT continuously variable transmission or 24/34 mpg with the 6-speed manual gearbox. The Accord Sport Sedan and Accord Coupe models get about a mile per gallon less in fuel economy.
A 3.5-liter V6 engine is available that delivers 278 horsepower and an EPA-rated 21/34 mpg City/Highway with the 6-speed automatic transmission; V6-powered Accord Coupes rate 21/32 mpg with the automatic. The Accord V6 coupe is also available with a sporty 6-speed manual, which rates 18/28 mpg, much less than the four-cylinder.
