The well-rounded Accord is our top-rated affordable family sedan. The new 2.4-liter four-cylinder works well with the CVT and got an impressive 30 mpg overall. The unobtrusive CVT acts like a conventional automatic. The 3.5-liter V6 is punchy and refined, and with the six-speed automatic gets a very good 26 mpg overall. Handling is quite agile and secure, and the ride is supple and controlled. The cabin is comfortable, with supportive seats, but the rear bench is snug for three. A backup camera is standard. Top-trim models have a fussy radio. A plug-in hybrid, with an EV range of 10 to 15 miles, is available in selected states. A regular hybrid arrives this fall.
