The 2012 Honda Accord is part of the model's eighth generation of production (2008-2015); when this generation debuted in 2008, it featured a sleeker design than its predecessor, along with a new 3.5L V6 engine option. For the 2012 model year specifically, USB audio connectivity became standard equipment on every trim level.
Honda Accord Engine Options
A 2.4L four-cylinder engine at 177-189 hp (varies by model year) is standard on all eighth-generation Honda Accord models, as is a five- or six-speed manual transmission. An automatic transmission is optional on every trim, and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) also became available beginning with the 2013 model year.
A more powerful 3.5L V6 engine at 268-278 hp (varies by model year) is also optional on the EX and EX-L trims for those who want a little more power under the hood.
Honda Accord Storage Space
Throughout most of its eighth generation, the Honda Accord boasts a spacious 14-cubic-foot trunk on its sedan and 11.9 cubic feet on its coupe body styles. However, later model years do see a slight increase in trunk space; the 2015 Accord sedan, for instance, has a 15.8-cubic-foot trunk, while its coupe offers 13.4 cubic feet of storage behind its rear row.

Reviews for 2012 Honda Accord
Best daily driver coupe
Great car. Awesome reliability and build workmanship. Very high quality feel. Integrity of the vehicle inside and out is top notch. Great styling. Wonderful v6 engine. A little behind in technology. Still has keyed ignition and only up to 5 speed on automatic. The variable cylinder management system can get quirky with quick changes in power output demands also. Overall this car is a fluid daily driver with style and confidence in performance. It's more like a companion than just a car!

Mileage, Go Honda
I needed a car to commute with. So, gas mileage was very important, my last calculation of gas mileage put me a 32 mpg. I live in the mountains at Bass Lake, so that is impressive. The car has all the options which makes it very comfortable to drive 2 hours per day. I was looking at other makers, but the Honda keep pulling me back, I'm glad Honda was my choice
