Our Opinion - 2024 Honda Accord Review Even though SUVs are popular now, people still want a reliable and affordable mid-size family car, and the 2024 Honda Accord is the best of the bunch. Most of Honda’s four-door cars have a fuel-efficient four-cylinder hybrid system. However, the base models have a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Front-wheel drive is the only choice, no matter what type you pick. After getting a makeover last year, the Accord now has a new sheet metal look that is one of the best the car has had in years. Inside the Accord, there are two rows of wide seats, a big trunk, and all the modern infotainment features you’d expect from a car. But the main reason we like it so much is that it is a pleasure to drive, and you can tell from the first mile on. A well-damped suspension, predictable driving, and precise steering all help the driver feel confident and happy. Another year, the Accord made our list of the ten best cars for 2024. In an automobile, it has everything that one could ever want. What's New? The Accord was completely reworked last year, and as 2024 approaches, there have been no major changes or tweaks. Pros and Cons Pros Managed well. Beautiful decorations inside. Very good safety measures. Cons The road makes a lot of noise. The types that drive the best need better features. Not as big screens on cheaper models. Engine, Transmission, and Performance The Accord LX and EX have a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that sends power to the front wheels through a CVT. This engine makes 192 horsepower. As with older Accords, it doesn’t come with all-wheel drive. The hybrid engine stands out from the rest. The only engine option for the Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, and Touring cars is this 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with two electric motors that make 204 horsepower. It took the Accord Hybrid 6.5 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph during our test drive. Honda says that by changing the suspension and steering, they made the family car easier to drive and smoother to ride in. We only noticed a few differences between this model and the one that came before it during our short test drive. Even with all of that, the Accord is still a very nice-looking and fun-to-drive car. People trust how the Accord is being handled. Our writers really like how well this car handles, how well the body moves, and how smooth the ride is. Safety All Accord models come with Honda Sensing, a set of tools that help the driver. The package of features includes basic techs like automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning, as well as useful techs like adaptive speed control and traffic sign recognition. Visit the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) webpages to learn more about the Accord’s crash test scores. Some important safety factors are: Most automatic emergency brakes can tell who is on the road. Normal lane exit alarm that helps you stay in your lane. It comes with adaptive speed control. Internal and External Cargo Capacity Like the outside, the inside of the Accord is current and includes parts from the newest Honda models, making the two cars feel like they belong together. For example, the HVAC air vents are hidden under a large piece of honeycomb trim. This is a smart design choice that was used on both the new Civic and the CR-V SUV. Honda says that the front seats of the Accord have been remade to support your body better, and the trunk has been carefully shaped to hold up to 16.7 cubic feet of stuff. The LX, EX, and Sport trims have cloth seats, while all the other models have leather seats. Fuel Economy and Actual MPG The EPA says that the Accord hybrid gets 51 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the highway. The regular Accord gets only 29 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway, which is better than the hybrid. On the other hand, the Accord EX with the nonhybrid engine only got 40 mpg on our highway fuel-economy route, which we drove at 75 mph. We looked at a hybrid car that got 39 mpg on the highway and could go up to 490 miles without needing to be refueled. Infotainment and Connectivity The Accord’s infotainment system is easy to use with a 7.0- or 12.3-inch tablet display that stands upright. All models, no matter the trim level, come with a 10.2-inch digital gauge display as standard. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay can be used on all models, but only the ones with the bigger 12.3-inch tablet can do so wirelessly. The most expensive Touring models come with a 12-speaker Bose audio system, a 6.0-inch head-up display, and a charging pad for your phone that is wireless. Price and How to Choose You should go to the EX-L Hybrid. It has a hybrid engine with 204 horsepower, a bigger 12.3-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, leather seats, a sunroof, automatic climate control for two zones, and parking sensors in both the front and back.
