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.
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.
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:
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 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.
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.
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.
The Honda Accord’s active safety features are there to keep you and your passengers from harm, but they do that by improving performance.
Those features work to detect and correct control issues, which is why your Honda Accord always feels like it’s working with you instead of against you.
