2020 Honda Accord: Efficiently Powered
Honda provides three available engine options for the 2020 Honda Accord. The standard engine is a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). This configuration generates 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque while retaining a high fuel economy. In fact, the 2020 Accord receives an EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway/33 combined MPG for LX, EX, and EX-L 1.5T trims.*
Now, here’s the split for our performance-oriented and eco-friendly drivers. The Sport trim has an available 2.0-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder paired with a manual 6-speed transmission. This configuration is capable of producing up to 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.
Choose hybrid Accord, and you’ll have a smaller displacement engine with a supplemental electric motor and an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (eCVT). While it only makes up to 143 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque, it gets an EPA-estimated 48 city/47 highway/48 combined MPG for hybrid trims.

Interior Conveniences in the 2020 Accord
There’s a multitude of technologies that you’ll immediately notice in the 2020 Honda Accord. Take a seat in the cockpit or front-passenger’s seat to access a 7-inch customizable multimedia screen in the LX trim or an 8-inch touchscreen display in the Sport, EX, and EX-L trims. This controls your audio system as well as navigation prompts depending on the trim level and available smartphone integration.
All five passengers can stay comfortable at their preferred temperatures thanks to a Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System. The LX trim has a push-button start, cap-less fuel filler, and programmable auto-locking doors—all to make your driving experience better.
2020 Honda Accord: Safety First
When it comes to safety, Honda doesn’t mess around. You won’t need to upgrade trim levels to receive basic driver-assistive features—unlike other manufacturers. These Honda Sensing® features include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow and a Collision Mitigation Braking System®. What’s neat about the ACC is that it can automatically maintain a certain following distance from the car in front of you.
You’ll have other standard systems, such as a Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), and a Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR). As for regular safety features, there’s a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines and a Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control.
