How Do Honda Accord Engine SpecsProduce a Standout Ride?

Honda Accord engine specs help deliver a ride of artful precision and untold power. As perfectly summed up by Motor Illustrated: “The accelerator is easy to modulate, the steering is precise, visibility is flawless, and the cabin’s ergonomics are simple.”

Any driver looking for a midsize sedan capable of delivering engaging performance at all speeds without sacrificing strong fuel economy ratings should seriously consider arranging a test drive in the 2019 Honda Accord.

Honda Accord Horsepower and Torque

The engine will be heart of your driving experience, and the Honda Accord manages to deliver a fantastic blend of power and efficiency from either of its available power plants.

  • 1.5L In-Line 4-Cylinder with Turbocharger: Makes up to 192 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque.
  • 2.0L In-Line 4-Cylinder with Turbocharger: Makes up to 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.

While the 2.0L is certainly going to appeal to drivers thirsty for dynamic performance and spirited acceleration, even the standard engine wildly outclasses rival models. Here’s how the standard engines of rival midsize engines compare:

2019 Honda Accord Engine
  • Mazda6: Up to 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque.
  • Ford Fusion: Up to 173 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque.
  • Hyundai Sonata: Up to 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque.
  • Kia Optima: Up to 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque.

Differences in output make a huge real-world difference. Whether you’re taking off from traffic lights in the city or changing lanes at speed on the highway, having that extra horsepower and torque on your side makes for a more rewarding and engaging drive.

Honda Accord Fuel Economy

Honda hasn’t yet released efficiency scores for the 2019 Accord, but industry experts expect ratings to roughly match those of the 2018 model, which made up to a competitive 30 mpg* in the city and 38 mpg* on the highway.

To ensure that sought-after blend of invigorating power and fuel-friendly efficiency, the Honda Accord allows drivers to choose between three state-of-the-art transmission systems.

2019 Honda Accord Transmission
  • 6-Speed Manual Transmission (6MT): Some like the quick-shift action and direct relationship between car and drive, so the Honda Accord continues to offer manual transmission.
  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode: CVT works by constantly adjusting the gear ratio to match changing conditions without requiring shifts. Power delivery is seamless.
  • 10-Speed Automatic Transmission (10AT): Using 10 separate gear ratios means performance can be refined around anything from low-speed maneuvering to high-speed cruising. Paddle shifters let you upshift or downshift on the fly.

As the Honda Accord’s transmission systems refine power delivery, drivers can use the Eco Assist™ System to coach themselves into a more efficient driving style.

Honda Accord Performance Features

The Honda Accord’s refreshing performance doesn’t come from the engine and transmission alone. Your drive will be constantly refined and sharpened by a wide array of features, including:

  • MacPherson Suspension: Front strut suspension and multi-link suspension works to iron out imperfections in the road for quiet and composed cruising.

  • Adaptive DamperSystem: Actively controlling suspension means providing superior control across uneven surfaces and tranquil driving across even ones.

  • 3 Mode Drive System: Switch between ECON, Sport, and Normal drive modes to adjust performance characteristics around changing conditions and desires.

  • Drive by Wire Throttle System: Replaces mechanical steering components with electrical ones for finer control and the addition of semi-autonomous driving technology.
