Drivers shopping for a mid-size sedan might not consider the stats of its engine at first, but we think that when you get a look at the 2015 Honda Accord specs, you’ll see that you don’t have to settle for a lackluster powertrain, especially if you opt for the available V6 engine. Keep in mind, these engine specs are just a part of the overall picture of the Accord’s success. Let’s take a look.
What’s Under the Hood?
The standard Accord all the way up through the Accord EX-L comes with a 2.4L four-cylinder engine rated at 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, which is already more than the average competing mid-size sedan, but if you’re willing to upgrade, this car can become much more powerful.
The available 3.5L V6 engine has 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque, yet upgrading to the V6 engine barely makes an impact on the fuel economy:
- The 2015 Accord LX with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 36 highway mpg.*
- 2015 Accord Sedans with the 3.5L V6 are rated at an EPA-estimated 34 highway mpg.*
One of the other key reasons we recommend all of our drivers review the specs of a vehicle online before they commit to it is to make sure that their next car won’t feel cramped or have too little cargo room—and we couldn’t imagine such a complaint about the Accord.
- The Accord’s trunk offers up as much as 15.8 cubic feet of cargo storage space.
- Passenger volume on the Accord is one of the highest in its class at 103.2 cubic feet.
With seating for up to five and impressive head- and legroom in both the front and the rear seats, it’s easy to see why so many families choose the Accord as their next sedan: it has room for the whole family.
