Honda freshened the 2006 Accord with some exterior and interior tweaks and upgrades, a bit of engine tuning, and additional standard safety equipment. They've made one of the best selling cars in the U.S. better - consider: for 20 of the 24 years that Car and Driver has been handing out 10Best Cars awards, the Accord has made it onto that exclusive list.
The base VP, new for 2006, replaces the DX trim line. 2006 saw a face lift across all Accord trim lines with a new grille, front and rear bumpers, deck lid, and LED tail lights. The VP has an impressive list of standard features: air conditioning, daytime running lamps, cruise control, power locks and keyless entry.
The standard VP trim engine is a 2.4-liter four cylinder with the i-VTEC variable valve timing system that produces torquey smooth power over the entire rpm range. This year, a drive-by-wire throttle and revised valve timing add to produce 166 hp at 5,800 rpm and 160 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.
Two transmissions are available, either a 5-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual. Reviewers were quite satisfied with the performance of both transmissions citing the "perfect" gear ratios and buttery smooth shifting of the manual and the smooth, tight shifting of the automatic.
Consumer Guide tests saw manual transmission 0-60 times in 7.9 seconds, with automatics doing it in 8.6 seconds. Their reviewers felt the 2.4-liter engines with automatic transmissions "labor in passing maneuvers and climbing steep grades." But no one complained about the gas mileage with a manual transmission EX coupe averaging 22.7-30.6 mpg and the automatic doing 25.2 mpg with 26.1 mpg over 19,000 miles. EPA estimates for the manual are 26/34 mpg and 24/34 mpg with the automatic.
Accords are built with a double wishbone suspension that is engineered to reduce acceleration squat, braking nose dive, and cornering lean. Reviewers were highly impressed by the handling. New Car Test Drive reviewers found the Accord rode smoother and was more comfortable than Nissan's Altima, handled better than the Toyota Camry, and was, "stable at high speeds with crisp handling on winding roads." Consumer Guide found the steering, "quick, informative; tight turning radius." Brakes were good, but stopping distances are not "super short" and they will fade under hard use.
The interior, freshened for 2006, sports a new instrument panel with new satin chrome accents on the vents, new seat fabrics, and a new steering wheel. The instrument panel gets high marks for its layout and clarity. The interior materials are high quality and tasteful with typical Honda finish quality. Reviewers found the seats "great, generously wide" and "the driver's seat provides a one-with-the-car feel." Standard across the Accord line, a tilt/telescope steering wheel adds to that feel. Rear bench seats in the sedan are roomy and comfortable for two people. Reviewers found rear-seat legroom, "slightly better than the Nissan Altima" but gave up an inch to the Toyota Camry. The Accord trunk holds 14 cubic feet, which is 3 cubic feet less than a Camry.
Accords are safe with five-star ratings for driver and front-seat passenger in government frontal crash tests. Honda has enhanced the standard safety equipment throughout its lineup. All Accords come with front dual airbags, side-impact and curtain airbags, and ABS.
The overall reviewer conclusion regarding the Accord is that it represents a bench mark for its mid-size sedan/coupe class.

Honda freshened the 2006 Accord with some exterior and interior tweaks and upgrades, a bit of engine tuning, and additional standard safety equipment. The exterior face lift involves a new grille, front and rear bumpers, deck lid, and LED tail lights.
The newly added Special Edition provides 16-inch alloy wheels, in-dash six-CD changer, body-color side sills and carbon fiber interior accents, four-wheel-disc brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), and steering wheel audio controls. All this is added to the standard LX features which include air conditioning, daytime running lamps, cruise control, power locks and keyless entry among others.
The standard engine is a 2.4-liter four cylinder with i-VTEC variable valve timing system that produces torquey smooth power over the entire rpm range. This year, a drive-by-wire throttle and revised valve timing add to produce 166 hp at 5,800 rpm and 160 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.

Honda freshened the 2006 Accord with some exterior and interior tweaks and upgrades, a bit of engine tuning, and additional standard safety equipment. The exterior face lift involves a new grille, front and rear bumpers, deck lid, and LED tail lights.
The top of the line EX comes with a long list of comfort and safety equipment which includes: alloy wheels, in-dash six-CD changer, four-wheel-disc brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), and steering wheel audio controls. Leather upholstery, XM Satellite Radio, a voice activated DVD navigation system and many other options were also available.
For the top of the line EX, the standard engine is a 2.4-liter four cylinder with the i-VTEC variable valve timing system that produces torquey smooth power over the entire rpm range. This year, a drive-by-wire throttle and revised valve timing add to produce 166 hp at 5,800 rpm and 160 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.

Honda freshened the 2006 Accord with some exterior and interior tweaks and upgrades, a bit of engine tuning, and additional standard safety equipment. The exterior face lift involves a new grille, front and rear bumpers, deck lid, and LED tail lights.
The mid-level LX V6 trim has an impressive list of standard features which include air conditioning, daytime running lamps, cruise control, power locks and keyless entry among others. In addition, with the V6 level, heated side mirrors, a power glass sunroof, and other luxury equipment are included.
The 3.0-liter V6 has also been tweaked for 2006 delivering 244 hp and 211 lb-ft of torque. The i-VTEC equipped V6's torque range begins down low in the rpm range. Reviewers loved the V6's performance. Consumer Guide saw 0-60 come up in 7.0 seconds in an automatic coupe. The standard transmission is a 5-speed automatic. Reviewers were quite satisfied with its performance citing its smooth, tight shifting. EPA gas mileage for the automatic is 21/30 mpg.
Accords are built with double wishbone suspension that is engineered to reduce acceleration squat, braking nose dive, and cornering lean. Reviewers were highly impressed by the handling. New Car Test Drive reviewers found the Accord rode smoother and was more comfortable than Nissan's Altima, handled better than the Toyota Camry, and was, "stable at high speeds with crisp handling on winding roads." Consumer Guide found the steering, "quick, informative; tight turning radius." Brakes were good, but stopping distances are not "super short" and they fade under hard use.
The interior, freshened for 2006, sports a new instrument panel with new satin chrome accents on the vents, new seat fabrics, and a new steering wheel. The instrument panel gets high marks for its layout and clarity. The interior materials are high quality and tasteful with typical Honda finish quality. Reviewers found the seats "great, generously wide" and "the driver's seat provides a one-with-the-car feel." Standard across the Accord line, a tilt/telescope steering wheel adds to that feel. Rear bench seats in the sedan are roomy and comfortable for two people. Reviewers found rear-seat legroom, "slightly better than the Nissan Altima" but gave up an inch to the Toyota Camry. The Accord trunk holds 14 cubic feet, which is 3 cubic feet less than a Camry.
Accords are safe with five-star ratings for driver and front-seat passenger in government frontal crash tests. Honda has enhanced the standard safety equipment throughout its lineup. All Accords come with front dual airbags, side-impact and curtain airbags, and ABS with Electronic Brake-force. The V6 models all add 17-inch wheels, Vehicle Stability Assist and brake assist.
Honda has made one of the best selling cars in the U.S. better - consider: for 20 of the 24 years that Car and Driver has been handing out 10Best Cars awards, the Accord has made it onto that exclusive list.

Honda freshened the 2006 Accord with some exterior and interior tweaks and upgrades, a bit of engine tuning, and additional standard safety equipment. The exterior face lift involves a new grille, front and rear bumpers, deck lid, and LED tail lights.
The top of the line EX comes with a long list of comfort and safety equipment which includes: alloy wheels, in-dash six-CD changer, four-wheel-disc brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), and steering wheel audio controls. Leather upholstery, XM Satellite Radio, a voice activated DVD navigation system and many other options were also available.
The 3.0-liter V6 has also been tweaked for 2006 delivering 244 hp and 211 lb-ft of torque. The i-VTEC equipped V6's torque range begins down low in the rpm range. Reviewers loved the V6's performance. Consumer Guide saw 0-60 come up in 7.0 seconds in an automatic Coupe, with Car and Driver wheeling a six-speed manual EX Coupe to an impressive 5.9 second 0-60 run.
A six-speed manual or five-speed automatic are no cost options. Reviewers were quite satisfied with the performance of both transmission options citing their smooth, tight shifting. EPA gas mileage for the automatic is 21/30 mpg. Consumer Guide recorded 22.4 mpg in a city/highway mix with 26.1 mpg in mostly highway driving for the automatic.
The Accords are built with a double wishbone suspension that is engineered to reduce acceleration squat, braking nose dive, and cornering lean. Reviewers were highly impressed by the handling. New Car Test Drive reviewers found the Accord rode smoother and was more comfortable than Nissan's Altima, handled better than the Toyota Camry, and was, "stable at high speeds with crisp handling on winding roads."

Honda freshened the 2006 Accord with some exterior and interior tweaks and upgrades, a bit of engine tuning, and additional standard safety equipment. The exterior face lift involves a new grille, front and rear bumpers, deck lid, and LED tail lights. Introduced in 2005, Honda continues its Accord Hybrid.
The 3.0-liter V6 used in the Hybrid set up has been tweaked for 2006 delivering 253 hp. The Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) - the electric motor - adding 16 hp and 100 lb-ft of torque under full acceleration with the hybrid system's regen efficiency upped to 95.2 percent. The V6 is equipped with an electronic system that deactivates all the valves on the rear bank to reduce the engine to a three-cylinder operation below 3,500 rpm whenever coasting or cruising. All six cylinders join for low battery recharge, high rpms, or a call for significant acceleration. A five-speed automatic flows the power to the front wheels. Acceleration is brisk with 0-60 zipping by in 6.7 seconds, which is faster than the non-hybrid automatic Accord V6 sedan.
Gas mileage, which is the purpose here, is EPA rated at 25/34 mpg (down from 2005 due to the addition of a sunroof and spare tire). However, Consumer Guide saw an average of 27.5 mpg over 17,000+ miles. Tom Incatalupo averaged 26 or 27 mpg on most of his trips and after "crunching the numbers" concluded, "If you really want to same money on fuel but still drive an Accord, opt for a four-cylinder model" - EPA estimates 24/34 mpg.
The Accords are built with a double wishbone suspension that is engineered to reduce acceleration squat, braking nose dive, and cornering lean. Reviewers were highly impressed by the handling. New Car Test Drive reviewers found the Accord rode smoother and was more comfortable than Nissan's Altima, handled better than the Toyota Camry, and was, "stable at high speeds with crisp handling on winding roads." Consumer Guide found the steering, "quick, informative; tight turning radius." Brakes were good, but stopping distances are not "super short" and they fade under hard use.
The interior, freshened for 2006, sports a new instrument panel with new satin chrome accents on the vents, new seat fabrics, and a new steering wheel. The instrument panel gets high marks for its layout and clarity. The interior materials are high quality and tasteful with typical Honda finish quality. Reviewers found the seats "great, generously wide" and "the driver's seat provides a one-with-the-car feel."
The Hybrid is equipped with leather, dual zone automatic hybrid climate control, eight-way power driver's seat, XM satellite radio, and a six-disc CD changer. Standard across the Accord line, a tilt/telescope steering wheel adds to that feel. Rear bench seats in the sedan are roomy and comfortable for two people. Reviewers found rear-seat legroom, "slightly better than the Nissan Altima" but gave up an inch to the Toyota Camry. The Accord Hybrid trunk holds 11.2 cubic feet, which gives up 2.8 cubic feet from the standard Accord for the battery and its ventilation system. The Hybrid employs an aluminum hood, bumper beams, rear suspension uprights, and some magnesium engine bits to make up for the weight of its additional technology.
Accords are safe with a five-star rating for driver and front-seat passenger in government frontal crash tests. The coupe scored a five-star rating for front- and rear-passengers in the side-impact test. Honda has enhanced the standard safety equipment throughout its lineup. All Accords come with front dual airbags, side-impact and curtain airbags, and ABS with Electronic Brake-force. The V6 models all add 17-inch wheels, Vehicle Stability Assist, and brake assist. The Hybrid adds traction control.
While the Accord Hybrid is still an Accord - one of, if not the best, mid-sized sedans available - hybrid technology has made great strides past this point.
