What more can you ask for? Congrats to Honda for its impressive winning streak.”

Available with Accord’s dramatically styled exterior and spacious class-above interior are a trio of powerful and fuel-efficient powertrains, including a 192-horsepower (SAE net) turbocharged 1.5-liter with CVT, a 252-hp (SAE net) 2.0-liter turbo with 10-speed automatic, and the upgraded 2-motor hybrid powertrain which offers a best-in-class 212 total system horsepower and a 48 mpg combined EPA rating. All Accords boast top-class refinement and driving dynamics.
