Spacious accommodations. The 2022 Honda Accord is one of the more spacious midsize sedans on the market, which makes it a good option for consumers that aren't ready to get into an SUV yet. The sedan can seat up to five people in comfort, though four passengers will be far more relaxed. Passengers in the back get 40.4 inches of rear legroom, which handily beats a lot of its competitors.

Cargo capacity in the Accord is also impressive. The sedan offers an enormous trunk that offers up to 16.7 cubic feet of cargo space. This figure is larger than the majority of midsize sedans in the class, too.

Punchy turbocharged engines.Honda continues to offer a duo of turbocharged engines with the Accord. Both offer a good amount of power while bringing competitive fuel economy.

The base engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 192 horsepower. This may be the base engine, but it feels more than powerful enough for daily use. Usually, the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is the worst part of any powertrain. We’re happy to report that the one found in the Accord works wonderfully. It operates smoothly while responding promptly. We wish all CVTs operated this well.

For extra power, there’s the available turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 252 horsepower. This engine is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The 2.0-liter engine is well worth the upgrade, bringing seriously strong off the-line-performance and peppy acceleration. The 10-speed can hunt for gears at times, but that’s normal for a gearbox with this many gears to choose from.

Other competitors have come a long way in handling, but this generation of the Accord has always been athletic around corners. The sedan features a capable chassis, which is paired with light steering, minimal body roll, and firm suspension. We don’t think many Accord owners will seek out a curvy road, but for the ones that do, they’ll be pleasantly surprised at how competent the sedan is. With the 2.0-liter engine, the Accord manages to straddle the line of being a practical family car that has similar moves to a sports sedan.

Well-equipped trims. Every Accord comes with a lengthy list of standard equipment and Honda’s decision to not offer the vehicle with any optional packages means all you really have to focus on is finding the right trim with everything you want.

Even the base Accord LX has an impressive list of equipment. An eight-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, two USB ports, four audio speakers, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, and remote keyless entry are standard on the entry-level trim. Additionally, the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety features is also standard on the Accord.

Our pick of the bunch would be the Sport trim, as it’s the first in the lineup to be offered with the available 2.0-liter engine. It also adds eight audio speakers, 19-inch alloy wheels, a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and chrome exhaust tips.

A jack of all trades. The Accord may not come with the same cutting-edge tech features as some of its rivals or have the most powerful engine. It also doesn’t have an eye-catching design that you’ll find on other options. What the Accord offers, though, is an excellent blend of versatility, performance, comfort, and technology to be a do-it-all vehicle. Whether you want a sedan to use for ride-sharing or something for the family, the Accord is up to the task.

While the Accord’s design won’t win any awards, it’s an unobtrusive look that will age well. The profile of the vehicle looks similar to a fastback, while the front air intake that leads directly into the grille and headlights is one of the bolder elements on the sedan.

The interior is even better with a sleek, modern design. Honda still fits the Accord with physical buttons and dials, which makes everything easy to use. It may not be the most high-tech cabin, but it’s intuitively laid out and simple. Both are great things with today’s overly complicated cars.

Final thoughts. For consumers that are still interested in sedans, the 2022 Honda Accord is one of the best options on sale. It does everything really well, making it a leader in the midsize segment. There aren’t many downsides to the Accord, beyond not being available with all-wheel drive.

Shoppers looking for more technology should check out the Hyundai Sonata. It’s available with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and Hyundai’s Digital Key. It also has a gorgeous design and a powerful N Line trim. For even more performance, there’s the Mazda6. It’s upscale, offers a potent turbocharged engine, has sharp handling, and features a timeless design.
