2016 Honda Accord Review
The Honda Accord is one of the most popular midsize sedans in the country. Offering a spacious interior, poised handling, and a long list of standard technology, the 2016 Honda Accord charms a wide range of buyers. This year’s refresh brings a number of updates to the much-admired Accord coupe and sedan.
Denver, Centennial, and Aurora area sedan shoppers looking for high value and versatility can read on to learn more about the Accord’s exciting new features and capabilities.
Let There Be LEDs
While this year’s Accord carries on its signature sleek profile, a little something different may catch your eye. The addition of blue-hued LED fog lights (on the Sport and above) and stylish LED taillights on all models makes the redesigned Honda Accord shine brighter than ever before.
The Same Savvy Powertrain
The Honda Accord’s base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine lives on in its 2016 version, pumping out 185 horsepower and providing willing acceleration to the base model. The Accord’s upper engine is a 278-horsepwer 3.5-liter V6 that ups the oomph and provides crisp get-up-and-go for highway travel.
Four-cylinder seekers can stay with the standard six-speed manual transmission or opt for the continuously variable transmission that provides smooth automatic-esque function.
With a renewed suspension and new electric steering, the 2016 Accord provides innate handling that quickly responds to driver input. These changes have also worked to make the sedan a quieter place to cruise by removing any extraneous engine noise that may have been lingering in the previous model.
The 2016 Honda Accord has a stylish and classy inner realm where cozy meets contemporary. With so many standard tech features included, the base Accord cabin doesn’t feel empty or bare like many of its competitors’ base models. The Honda Accord’s 7.7-inch display screen on top of the dashboard presents key vehicle information to drivers in an array of crisp colored graphics.
The 2016 Honda Accord’s major technology debut comes in the form of its new 7-inch touchscreen interface (on trims EX and above) that features HondaLink app integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. HondaLink hosts a myriad of media capabilities, allowing you to access satellite and HD radio in addition to phone programs, messaging, and more.
Standard features are still at an all-time high in the Accord and include Bluetooth phone and audio, dual-zone auto climate control, and a rearview camera.
The Accord also continues its reign as the midsize with one of the roomiest backseats on the market. Plus versions above the base LX now have the option of partial backseat use. A new 60/40 rear split gives drivers the power to fine tune their mix of passengers and cargo.
Safety Sense That Steps In
Honda Sensing, which comes standard on the Accord Touring trim, is now available as an add-on for all lower models. This superior set of driver assistance technologies is at your side at all times. The Forward Collision Warning system alerts you if there’s a dramatic decrease in traffic speed. If the distance between you and the car in front of you gets too close for comfort, the system’s Automatic Braking can even help you come to a stop.
In crash test ratings, the 2016 Honda Accord was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and received an overall rating of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The 2016 Honda Accord is a solid family pick that excels in nearly every category. Denver, Centennial, and Aurora area shoppers can get behind the wheel for their own evaluation by scheduling a test drive with Mile High Honda. Don’t wait to check out this polished and well-appointed ride.
