2017 Honda Accord Touring sedan

Pros: Impressive ride and handling balance; spacious back seat; all-around visibility is among best in class; availability of sporty coupe models

Cons: Attaining some desirable features means stepping up to high-end trim levels; trunk space and accessibility

CG Says: For 2017, Honda Accord adds a new trim level and the Hybrid returns after skipping a year. The Sport Special Edition adds leather upholstery and heated front seats to the Sport model. Otherwise, non-hybrid Accords are essentially unchanged for 2017. The Hybrid has a new drivetrain that combines a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with two electric drive motors for a total of 212 horsepower. A more compact battery design allows an increase in trunk room. Accord’s traditional strengths include a fine ride/handling balance, a spacious back seat, and a solid, cohesive overall feel. Worthwhile technology features, competitive fuel economy numbers, and high-quality cabin materials are other high points. The rare-for-the-class 2-door coupe versions offer a bit more sporty style. Now more than ever, the hyper-competitive midsize-car segment is filled with excellent vehicles, but in all its forms, Accord remains among the best in the class.
