2020 Honda Accord Overview

The midsize Honda Accord entered its tenth generation for the 2018 model year. For 2020, it goes unchanged, offering the same LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring trims.

The Accord gives you the choice of two engines. A turbocharged 1.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, which makes 192 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque, comes standard with LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L trims and either a 6-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Those with a greater need for speed can select a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, good for 252 hp and 273 lb-ft, and either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 10-speed automatic transmission with a push-button shifter. All Accords are exclusively front-wheel drive (FWD). Fuel-economy estimates are as high as 30 mpg city, 38 highway, and 33 combined with the 1.5-liter engine. With the 2.0-liter, estimates drop slightly to 23/34/27.

The base LX trim comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime-running lights (DRLs), Bluetooth, and a 7-inch color infotainment system. Other trims get remote engine start, larger wheels, power front seats, a power sunroof, an 8-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, memory seating, and premium audio.

Every Accord comes with the Honda Sensing suite of safety technology. It bundles forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, and traffic-sign recognition. A multi-angle reversing camera, automatic high beams, and a driver-attention monitor are also standard. The only options are blind-spot monitoring and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The Accord earned a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as recently as 2019.

The Accord remains a strong choice for shoppers who want safety and style.
