2015 Honda Accord performance
The 2015 Accord is part of the ninth generation that spanned from 2013 to 2017. In 2015, the Accord enticed with its shapely body design and newly standard features. When it was new, reviewers, including Consumer Reports, recognized the Accord for its superb balance of fuel economy and performance. CR says the 2015 version is particularly easy to live with because it’s simple, smooth, and accommodating.
You have a few different performance options to choose from for the 2015 Accord. Base models will have 185-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder. This same engine is on the Accord Sport models, but it’s tuned to make 189-hp. Both are available with a six-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic.
The four-cylinder models are polished and enjoyable to drive. But for a quicker experience, shop for Touring variants. The Accord Touring trim has a 278-hp, 3.5-liter V6 and a six-speed automatic. Overall, the Accord is one of the most fuel-efficient options in the class. You may even want to consider the eco-friendlier hybrid models for better gas mileage.
“The bigger surprise is how well Honda implemented the continuously variable transmission (CVT.) The CVT takes the place of a traditional automatic for the four-cylinder (which we tested), yet it does an excellent job of emulating a well-tuned automatic. Some of our drivers weren’t aware it was a CVT. Ratio changes are super-quick and typically very smooth.”Consumer Reports (2015)
