In accordance with Honda tradition, the trim level you choose largely determines how your Accord is equipped -- options and packages are essentially non-existent.
The Accord LX sedan kicks off with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 185 horsepower and a six-speed manual transmission, or an optional CVT automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is the only setup for the Accord. Other equipment includes dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth handsfree functionality, a 160-watt four-speaker audio system with streaming audio and USB input, 16-inch alloy wheels and a backup camera.
The LX-S Coupe adds paddle shifters to the automatic transmission and 17-inch alloy wheels.
The Sport trim adds to the LX sedan a slightly more powerful 189-horsepower engine, as well as 19-inch alloy wheels, paddle shifters for the automatic transmission, 10-way power driver's seat, rear spoiler and front fog lights.
EX trim nets 17-inch alloy wheels, power moonroof, keyless entry and start, a six-speaker audio system and Honda's LaneWatch system. Coupes get a touchscreen radio.
-EX-L adds automatic transmission, leather upholstery, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, heated front seats, two-position memory for the driver's seat, 4-way power passenger's seat and a 7-speaker audio system with touchscreen radio, satellite radio and multi-angle backup camera.
-EX-L Navi adds a navigation system with voice recognition, illuminated steering wheel controls for the system and Song By Voice.
-EX-L V6 adds a 3.5-liter 278 horsepower V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic. Also included are LED daytime running lights. Coupes get 18-inch alloy wheels and offer a six-speed manual.
-EX-L V6 Navi adds the navigation system with voice recognition, illuminated steering wheel controls for the system and Song By Voice. Coupes also add 18-inch wheels and are available with a six-speed manual.
Finally, the range-topping Touring sedan adds to the EX-L V6 Navi automatic LED headlights and adaptive cruise control. It also comes with a price that puts it within punching distance of premium-brand competitors.
For those seeking a dose of sport with their practicality, the Accord offers one of the few manual transmission in the category and it's a good one. It's worth hunting one out. And the V6 Coupe with a manual is another best-kept secret. But for most buyers, the four-cylinder EX is by far one of the most practical buys right now, as it's blessed with a long list of equipment for a reasonable price.
