Merge onto freeways, climb steeps hills and power through city streets with a commanding presence, thanks to the standard 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine. It provides the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan with a stout 185 horsepower and 181 lb.-ft. of torque. The alternative is a 3.5-liter V-6 capable of churning out 278 horsepower and 252 lb.-ft. of torque. Both options make use of i-VTEC to provide great fuel economy and on-demand performance. Hill start assist is included on all models, plus a thrilling drive-by-wire throttle.
With the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, the standard transmission is a 6-speed manual. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is optional, adding extra efficiency and more ease-of-use. Sport and Sport Special Edition models with the CVT also feature paddle shifters on the steering wheel, so drivers can change how the transmission behaves at different intervals. Getting the V-6 engine means a 6-speed automatic transmission is the only option. No matter the engine or transmission, all 2017 Honda Accord Sedan models feature front-wheel drive.
One of the great aspects of this sedan is the level of control drivers feel, no matter what kind of road they're traveling on. Part of that sensation is from the MacPherson strut front suspension, plus a multi-link suspension in the rear. The electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering provides a level or precision you'll definitely love when attacking canyon roads or other twisty, winding pathways. Power-assist and antilock brakes also keep the powertrains in check.
Safety is a big deal, and that's why the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan comes loaded with passive and active systems designed to keep everyone free from harm. Vehicle stability assist with traction control keeps the car going in the desired direction, even in slippery conditions. Excellent panic stopping power is facilitated by the electronic brake force distribution and brake assist. With the multi-angle rearview camera, drivers can choose the angle best suited for each situation, giving them a commanding perspective of what's going on behind the sedan. Collision mitigation and road departure mitigation are both optional, aiding the driver when it's most needed.
While avoiding accidents is of course ideal, it's not always possible. Passive safety features in the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan raise the chances of walking away from a wreck. Included in the standard airbag setup is SmartVent technology for the side front seat-mounted airbags, meaning they can detect when someone is in the way and actually not inflate all the way. With an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, the car is designed to absorb the blow of an impact, minimizing its effect on the people inside.
You'll find the interior is a refined space, designed for excellent functionality and practical comfort. Among the many features is a multi-function steering wheel, with controls you can easily reach at any time. An available driver memory seat can be adjusted 10 different ways, plus has two savable positions so you can get going quickly. A dual-zone automatic climate control system, HomeLink remote, wireless phone charger and many more conveniences are included or can be added.
