2015 Honda Accord Review

Available as a coupe and a sedan, the 2015 Honda Accord is a standout in both of the segments in which it competes. The coupe offers roomy two-door transportation, while the sedan is a benchmark among family haulers.

The Honda Accord is a midsize car that’s offered with a base four-cylinder engine or an optional V6. An Accord Hybrid is also available and covered separately. Four-cylinder Accord sedans come in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and EX-L Navi trims, while EX-L, EX-L Navi and Touring trims are offered with V6 four-door models. Accord coupes come in LX-S, EX, EX-L and EX-L Navi trims with the four-cylinder engine, while V6 models come in EX-L and EX-L Navi trims.

Certain Honda Accord trims receive minor content upgrades in 2015. Four-cylinder EX-L and EX-L Navi coupes and sedans now come with a HomeLink universal remote system that allows you to program codes of up to three devices, such as a home security system or a garage-door opener. Four-cylinder EX coupes add Honda's LaneWatch display, a system using a camera and in-dash monitor to offer drivers a view of the passenger-side roadway. Coupes in EX-L and higher trims now feature an auto-dimming rearview mirror as standard equipment.
