1994 Honda Accord: First VTEC Accord

After Honda pioneered the technology in the NSX sports car, the Honda Accord finally received variable-valve timing (VTEC) technology in 1994, with the EX trim package. This proved that high-performance engines weren’t saved for performance vehicles, and that even family-sedans could get great technology. That 2.2L engine put out 145 hp and 147 lb·ft, a healthy amount of power for a four-cylinder engine. Now every Accord is expected with VTEC, from four-cylinder models to V6s.

    That Accord AeroDeck is perhaps the coolest Accord ever, although it bears a striking resemblance to an early 80′s Civic hatchback.  And I agree, much better than the downright awful-looking Crosstour and it’s badge-engineered cousin the Acura ZDX.
