2014 Honda Accord is roomy, comfortable, and fun to drive

Shoppers looking at the 2014 Honda Accord will find midsize sedan and coupe body styles, generous interior and cargo space, and a sporty driving feel. Multiple powertrains are available, including a four-cylinder or a robust V6. In addition, 2014 saw the limited introduction of a hybrid model, and a rare plug-in hybrid.

A key advantage the Accord has over its competitors is its driving dynamics, which hold up well to this day. All of the drivetrains offer confident acceleration, and the sharp steering and sporty but comfortable suspension make the Accord exceptionally competent around even bumpy corners. Its roomy and comfortable interior provide plenty of space for passengers, although the coupe’s rear quarters are a bit tight. Some Accords even came with forward collision and lane departure warning, a rarity for a mainstream sedan in 2014. However, those looking for the latest technology may want to consider a model built after 2016, since the Accord from this year didn’t offer additional advanced driver assist systems such as adaptive cruise control, nor was Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ smartphone integration available.

5 reasons to buy the 2014 Honda Accord

What We Like

Driving: Even though this Accord is getting on in years, the driving experience remains modern and spot-on. All of the available powertrains deliver good acceleration, and the braking, steering and suspension combine for responsive and composed handling. The four-cylinder engine and CVT pair very well, responding quickly to the gas pedal.

Comfort: The 2014 Accord coddles its passengers better than you’d expect for a mainstream midsize sedan. Choose leather, and you’ll find the seats are firm and supportive for long drives, and the cloth versions add a bit more softness. The seats complement superior ride quality that’s even more surprising considering the Accord is fun to drive. The climate control could be more robust though—to keep up on a hot day requires setting the system lower than you might expect.

Interior: The Accord’s wide doors make it easy to get in and out, and once inside everyone except the tallest drivers should find plenty of interior space. The materials inside feel a cut above the Accord’s contemporaries from the mid-2010s, and visibility is also excellent. Opt for the sedan, and a 6-foot-tall rear passenger can easily sit behind an equally tall driver with room to spare.

What Needs Improvement

Technology: While the 2014 Accord had forward collision and lane departure warning available, this is still an older car, and it lacks modern technologies. There’s a USB input for example, but Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto didn’t exist when this Accord was originally sold, so it’s not available. Also, the Accord’s touchscreen interface is slow and clumsy to use.
