Refreshed hybrid powertrain debuts in the 2017 Honda Accord sedan

The 2017 Honda Accord was available as a four-door sedan or a two-door coupe, offering generous interior and cargo space and a sporty driving feel. Accord shoppers can choose between three engines, including a four-cylinder, a V6, or a hybrid powertrain that’s strictly for sedans.

Although this version of the Accord is getting on in years, it still represents a strong value for used car shoppers thanks to its modern driving feel and updated technology. It offers an advanced driver assist system, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration on some trims. Inside, the interior is exceptionally roomy, with tons of space even for tall passengers, and ample trunk space as well. The downside is that those more modern systems don’t work quite as smoothly as a more modern car’s, but it’s still better to have them than not.

5 reasons to buy the 2017 Honda Accord

What We Like

Driving: The 2017 Honda Accord is a joy to drive, with excellent acceleration and braking, and responsive and composed handling. In corners, the Accord keeps its composure even over bumps. The four-cylinder engine and CVT pair very well, responding quickly to the gas pedal.

Comfort: Honda has built a midsize sedan that coddles its driver and passengers. The seating isn’t exactly luxurious, but the leather-wrapped front seats are firm and supportive during long drives, with the cloth seat cushions feeling even softer. The Accord’s ride quality is also very good. The only downside is a climate control system that can’t quite keep up on a hot day, requiring the system to be set lower than one might expect.

Interior: The Accord has an exceptionally roomy interior, with wide doors that make it easy to get in and out. The materials all feel a cut above contemporary sedans from the mid-2010s, and visibility is excellent thanks to the high seating position and ample glass area. There’s also plenty of space to spread out, with a 6-foot-tall passenger easily sitting behind an equally tall driver with room to spare.

What Needs Improvement

Technology: Modern technology in the Accord includes a touchscreen audio system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, which works well, if a little slow by modern standards. But the rest of the interface is slow and clumsy to use, further hampered by an overreliance on physical controls, even for volume. Honda does have a suite of advanced driver assist systems available, but it has much more abrupt reactions, lacking the refinement of newer versions of the system.
