Honda Accord Performance

The new 2016 Honda Accord is generally known for its reliability, safety, and efficiency – but some driving enthusiasts know it as the midsize sedan that can keep up on winding roads. It offers class competitive figures for both the standard four-cylinder and the optional V6 engine. Both configurations also offer high fuel economy estimates from the EPA. Take a look at the figures below.

Four Cylinder Accord Performance

The base 2.4L engine in the 2016 Honda Accord cranks out 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque in the base configuration, and you have189 hp and 182 lb-ft at your disposal with the optional Sport trim level’s dual exhaust. The standard configuration with continuously variable transmission earns an impressive EPA estimated 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway/31 mpg combined*.

In testing by Car and Driver, the Accord Sport with manual transmission managed to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 6.6 seconds – a remarkable time for a midsize car with a four cylinder engine. Car and Driver testing of the Accord with continuously variable transmission still managed to hit 60 mph in only 7.1 seconds.

V6 Accord Performance

The upgrade option under the hood of the 2016 Honda Accord is a 3.5L V6 that makes 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. With a six-speed automatic, the V6 model is rated by the EPA at 21 mpg city/34 mpg highway/26 mpg combined. The V6 motivated Accord manages to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a scant 6.1 seconds – a time that competes with quite a few sports cars on the market today.
