2020 Honda Accord EX-L 1.5T CVT SedanNew Search Select Other Trims
2020 Honda Accord Sedan OverviewThe 2020 Honda Accord comes with three different drivetrain combinations. The base engine is a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder producing 192 horsepower. Transmissions available with this engine include a 6-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission that can alter gear ratios on the fly. Meanwhile, the optional V6 from years past has also been replaced with a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. This one displaces 2.0L and makes 252 horsepower, slightly less than the V6 engine it replaced. However, the new engine does make significantly more torque than that old V6 while also producing better mileage, so overall, it's a tradeoff most buyers would be happy to make. Power is sent to the front wheels via either a 10-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual with the 2.0L engine. The optional hybrid drivetrain uses a 2.0L non-turbocharged engine in combination with two electric motors to send power to the front wheels while sipping a minimum of gasoline.
The Honda Accord comes in four basic trims, LX, Sport, EX and Touring. LX trim is available with the hybrid drivetrain or the 1.5L. It includes 17-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights, dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera displayed on a 7-inch color LCD screen, Bluetooth connectivity, USB ports and a push-button starter.
Sport models can be configured with either turbocharged engine and can even be had with a 6-speed manual. Standard features on the Sport include 19-inch wheels, aluminum pedals and an 8-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If buyers option the Sport with the bigger engine, they'll also get heated front seats, a power moonroof, a blindspot warning system, SiriusXM satellite radio and a remote starter. If buyers want all those options with the 1.5L or hybrid powertrain, they should opt for the EX.
Top-of-the-line Touring models are offered only with the 2.0L engine and come even better outfitted with a power-adjustable passenger seat, a 10-speaker premium audio system, a navigation system, full LED headlights, adaptive dampers in the suspension, a heads-up display, wireless charging for phones, ventilated front seats and additional noise insulation.

2020 Honda Accord Sedan Value
The Honda Accord is a mid-sized sedan, competing in a crowded segment against the Toyota Camry, the Nissan Altima and Chevy Malibu. The Accord offers savvy buyers an interesting alternative in a category often populated with uninspiring sedan options.
The Accord however, no matter the engine or the transmission (including the increasingly rare option of a 6-speed manual) the sedan manages to successfully balance dynamic performance and strong fuel economy. Combined with the Accord's excellent ergonomics, roomy interior and all the storage space a family might need, there's no doubt why it consistently tops reviewers' best-of lists and is one of the best-selling vehicles in North America.
