Engine and Fuel Economy

The Accord's standard 2.4L 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC engine generates 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, and it can reach up to 189 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque on higher trim configurations. The available EX-L V6 trim has a 3.5L V6 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC engine with 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque for a hearty boost of power.

The fuel economy figures are as follows:

  • When equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, the Accord produces an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway*.
  • The coupe model with a 3.5L V6 engine and 6-speed manual transmission has 18 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway*.
  • Choose the Continuously Variable Transmission for 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway*.

Transmission and Suspension

Accord models have three transmission choices, so drivers can achieve the performance that they want. Models come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission, but there is an option for a Continuously Variable Transmission with Sport Mode. The Sport and Sport Special Edition have the option for paddle shifters. The EX-L V6 comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission Sport Mode-push the Sport Mode button for a performance boost.

The refined suspension system creates premium handling on the road. The suspension system consists of front MacPherson struts and rear multi-link system. The Sport trim and higher have a front shock tower bar to reduce flex during cornering. The front of the model has a 17-inch stabilizer bar, while the rear has a 14-inch stabilizer bar. The EX-L V6 trim, however, has a 19-inch front stabilizer bar and a 15-inch rear stabilizer bar.


The Accord engine is made of aluminum-alloy for a lightweight design that aids in optimal fuel economy. Additionally, the Eco Assist System helps drivers learn how to maximize efficiency with helpful Eco Coaching tips. The Accord design also includes Active Noise Cancellation for a peaceful cabin experience-you can enjoy hearty performance without having to hear the engine and transmission work.
