The Honda Accord is a midsize sedan that combines power, efficiency, and technology to make it a solid option for a daily driver. Add its modern style, and the 2020 Accord is a well-rounded choice in its segment.
There are three powertrain options to choose from under the hood of the 2020 Accord. The standard engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which is paired to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). This combination allows the Accord to put out 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque, while also achieving an EPA-estimated fuel-efficiency rating of up to 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway1.
A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is also available on certain trim levels. It comes paired to a ten-speed automatic transmission. This engine produces 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque while earning an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway2.
If you opt for the Sport trim, both of these engines are also available with a six-speed manual transmission.
For those looking to cut back on the cost of gas, the Accord Hybrid is a solid option. This hybrid sedan uses two electric motors alongside a 2.0-liter engine to offer a combined output 143 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque. It gets up to 48 mpg in the city and 47 mpg on the highway3.
