The 2015 Honda Accord brings sedan and coupe body styles, generous interior and cargo space, and a sporty driving feel to the mainstream midsize market. A four-cylinder, or a robust V6 are available, as well as a hard-to-find hybrid.
The driving dynamics of the 2015 Accord hold up very well to this day, with confident acceleration with either engine, sharp steering, and a suspension that’s comfortable around town but still competent around corners. Its roomy and comfortable interior offers up plenty of space for passengers, although the coupe’s rear quarters are a bit tight. Some Accords were even offered with forward collision and lane departure warning, a rarity for a mainstream sedan at the time. However, those looking for the latest technology may want to consider a slightly newer model, 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.

Driving: The best thing about the 2015 Honda Accord is the driving experience. When equipped with any of the available powertrains, acceleration was considered good for the time, and the braking, steering and suspension combine for responsive and composed handling, but still delivering a comfortable ride. The four-cylinder engine and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) pair very well, responding quickly to the gas pedal.
Comfort: While no luxury car, the Accord coddles its driver and passengers. The leather seats (EX-L, Touring trims) are firm and supportive during long drives, and the cloth versions (LX, LX-S, EX, Sport trims) feel even softer. The seats complement the superior ride quality, especially considering that the Accord is fun to drive. We do wish that the climate control system was more robust; keeping the Accord cool on a hot day requires setting the system lower than one might expect.
Interior: Unless you’re a pro basketball center, you’ll find the Accord’s interior exceptionally roomy, with wide doors that make it easy to get in and out. Visibility is also excellent, and the materials inside feel a cut above contemporary sedans from the mid-2010s. In the sedan, there’s enough room for everyone to spread out, with a 6-foot tall rear passenger easily sitting behind an equally tall driver with room to spare.
Technology: There’s no getting around the fact that this is an older car, and thus lacks certain modern technologies. We like that forward collision and lane departure warning were available as options, and suggest seeking out Accords that have them. But although there is a USB input for music, there is no Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™, and the Accord’s touchscreen interface is slow and clumsy to use.
