The 2016 Honda Accord gets a mild refresh this time around. Honda Accord has been the best-selling family sedan for ages. It has a solid reputation for being comfortable, reliable, and safe, even if it is a little bit boring. For 2016, Honda has made sure to pack its family sedan with enough technology and a sporty new look to make sure people aren’t bored anymore. Honda's most expensive sedan starts at an MSRP of $23,005.

The mild refresh brings in an updated exterior design silhouette, with larger wheels on the Accord. On the interior front, Honda now equips its best-selling offering with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto setups. The safety quotient gets a mild update too, as Honda Sensing is now being offered as a standard feature on all the available trims.

Spacious Sedan

Pros - Combo of power and fuel efficiency, Super-active & enaging ride handling, Spacious and upscale interior

Cons - Exterior noise reaches the cabin, Entering and exit is unpleasant due to low seating

Selling it ASAP The seating as well as entry and and exit in the Accord is quite wearisome. For my wife it is a waste of car since she is used to driving SUvs and not sedan. I feel this car has great power and fuel efficiency that covers all the negative aspects of the car. At 5-6 revs the car starts creating transmission noise which is quite a pain for my ears and that is why I am wishing to sell this car as a priority. The safety features installed in this sedan are pretty standard and not cutting edge. Well I did not like the people dealing with my sedan at the first place as they were not wanting to sell a used car. They did not even bother to give me a good leasing offer. I remember that they did not even offer me a test drive at the first place.

Two engines are on offer with the 2016 Accord- a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a 3.5-liter V6 engine. The base engine can be optioned between a six-speed manual and a revised continuously variable automatic transmission, while the V6 gets a six-speed automatic transmission. Further changes to the extent of tuned suspension bits and larger wheels help favor the refresh tag. The Honda Accord has to fight other giants from the segment like Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, Nissan Altima, and more to show off its prowess. Let's find out how it fares?

2016 Honda Accord Pricing and Features

8.5/10

Honda offers a number of trims to choose from. These include LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring to be exact. In the Tour de France of pricing, the Honda Accord rides mid-pack with a sub $23,000 base price and a max price of around MSRP $35,000. Those numbers look even more appealing with the knowledge that the Accord’s resale value rivals the best-in-class.

The base LX trim comes with a good mix of standard features but it misses some important features in the infotainment department. Hence, it is better to buy the EX trim for an MSRP of $25,580 as it adds all the features from the base two trims, and in addition, it also adds satellite radio, smartphone integration, a 7-inch touchscreen display, and a push-button start. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is now available too in the EX trim.

2016 Honda Accord Engine and Performance

9.0/10

All the trim models except for the Touring trim runs on the same 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine. This engine makes 185 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. The Sport trim peps the power slightly to 189 horses and 182 pound-feet of torque. These engines can be paired either to a six-speed manual or a CVT automatic. The transmissions are mostly the same except for a CVT, which gets a bit refined and responsive than the one that came before. Defying a trend towards smaller turbocharged engines, the Accord can be had with a V6 which is very powerful.

The top-of-the-line Touring model comes standard with a 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 that makes 278 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. This engine is also available on the EX-L trim. The six-speed automatic that comes aboard with the V6 is not the smoothest operator. With a stiffer structure, reworked suspension, and re-tuned electric power steering system, the Honda Accord hits once again at that sweet spot between ride comfort and agility.

The Honda Accord tops the table in all the sections. Its powerful engine helps the sedan to achieve the fastest acceleration and quarter-mile timings in this competition. Although the Nissan Altima is behind the Hyundai Sonata in terms of power, it overtakes the latter and gives a good challenge to the Accord in the 0-6- mph test. Meanwhile, with the lowest power outputs and slowest timings, the Toyota Camry slips to the last spot. 

2016 Honda Accord Fuel Economy

9.0/10

There is no one greater than Honda Accord when it comes to fuel economy. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine gets all the praises for its fuel efficiency. Though housing a smaller fuel tank, it delivers an impressive 26 mpg in the cities while the highway mileage rounds off to 35 mpg. Using a manual transmission drops the numbers to 27 mpg combined. Furthermore, the V6 with a six-speed automatic delivers 26 mpg combined mileage.

With excellent fuel estimates, the Honda Accord enjoys its throne on the top of the table. The Hyundai Sonata also shares the same combined mileage of 30 but with a larger tank. The Toyota Camry also flaunts good fuel economy with 28 mpg combined. Thanks to its larger fuel tank, the Nissan Altima offers the best range in the city and on the highway.

8.4/10

Climb aboard the latest Honda Accord, and you’ll enjoy quality materials and ample passenger space upfront. All five seats get cloth upholstery as standard, while leather seats are available. Comfort and support levels are supreme in the Accord. The rear seat headroom slightly trails its rivals, but for most people, the Accord’s rear quarters are just fine.

Enhancing the experiences are good outward visibility and a quiet cabin aided by active noise cancellation. Outback, the nicely finished trunk offers a competitive 15 and a half cubic feet. Carrying larger items are tricky due to a narrow pass through.

The Hyundai Sonata and the Nissan Altima offer impressive legroom in the front row, while the other two rivals excel in the rear row legroom. Also, the Sonata offers the segment-best cargo capacity of 16.3 cubic feet, while the other three rivals stay together in mid 15 cubic feet. Some of the best interior features of the Accord include:

  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • A power moonroof
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Remote start
  • 4-way power passenger’s seat
  • Heated front seats
  • Aluminum pedals
  • Keyless entry

How intuitive is the 2016 Honda Accord’s infotainment system?

Honda is still sticking to its buttonless, no volume knob, two-screen setup even though it has not been very popular. The same standard 7.7-inch screen that displays lane watch and the optional navigation system is supplemented on higher trims by a 7-inch touchscreen used to control audio and phone functions.

The new infotainment screen also understands smartphone gestures like pinch, swipe, and tap. The Accord is also the first Honda to get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, integrating your smartphone has never been easier. Some of the other features include:

  • A 7-speaker audio system
  • HD radio
  • Satellite radio
  • USB port
  • Navigation system
  • Bluetooth connectivity

2016 Honda Accord Exterior

9.0/10

The new Accord gets a bunch of styling updates starting with more chrome, new wheels, a tweaked bumper, and new LED headlights up front. It still looks like an Accord but it gets nips and hugs all around, so it’s a little bit sharper and more aggressive than it used to be. The front end is unmistakably Honda with a familiar smiling grille and the chrome garnish but it does look tauter than the older version.

2016 Honda Accord Sedan Interior

The length and width are a little less but the height is a little bit more, giving this car an overall more compact look. The rear, however, still has that big heavy feel. The Sport variant is which has got the most updates, with new 19-inch wheels, a decklid spoiler, and dual exhaust tips.

Some of the exterior highlights of the Accord include:

  • 16,17 & 19-inch alloy wheels
  • Dual exhaust pipes
  • Fog lights
  • Automatic high-beam LED headlights

2016 Honda Accord Safety

8.8/10

The 2016 Honda Accord received a solid five stars from NHTSA, while the IIHS honored the sedan with the designation of ‘Top Safety Pick’. Perhaps, the most significant addition to the refreshed 2016 Accord is Honda Sensing, a suite of technologies available on all trims that helps shield the driver from the burden of facing an accident.

2016 Honda Accord Sedan Crash Test

It’s a golden era for inattentive drivers. Furthermore, changes in the form of better structural reinforcements also help in the safety aspect of the car.

Some of the major 2016 Honda Accord safety features include:

  • Forward Collision Warning with Brake Assist
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Dynamic Cruise Control
  • Honda LaneWatch

2016 Honda Accord Final Verdict

Like a good server at a restaurant, the Honda Accord impresses quietly doing its job with zero drama. Although this car still has serious competition, even though it is one of the best-selling family sedans in America. Depending on your specific taste, there are certainly reasons to look elsewhere, but if what you need is an all-purpose family sedan, the Honda Accord is an easy solution.
