Vehicles with J.D. Power Quality Ratings
After an all-new sedan and coupe were introduced last year, only minor changes are made on mainstream models. The big news for 2014 Accords is the introduction of a regular hybrid model and a limited-production, plug-in hybrid variant.
The 2013 Honda Accord is all new inside and out. Sleeker, rippled sheetmetal defines an exterior that has shrunk around an interior that is magically roomier. The 4-cylinder engine has direct injection and is mated to a CVT automatic transmission for better fuel economy, while the V6 has more power and exceptional fuel efficiency. New trims are Sport to capture younger buyers and, at the top, a Touring version.
Think about a Honda and an Accord will likely come to mind. For nearly four decades the Accord has been a staple for the automaker and a standout among rivals. In the process it has matured from a tiny 2-door hatchback to a full-featured family sedan and sleek coupe brimming with features. Today, the 2015 Honda Accord continues to set the standard in a segment that's crowded with rivals like the Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Chrysler 200 and Nissan Altima. Still fresh off a recent revamp that blessed it with new design and more efficient powertrains, the 2015 Accord also continues to offer its something-for-everyone appeal with easy driving manners and a broad lineup that ranges from a sub-$23,000 family sedan to a premium-quality hybrid.
