The 2015 Honda Accord is a mid-size front-wheel drive sedan and coupe powered in its base trim by a 2.4-liter inline-four engine trim that produces 185 horsepower and 181 foot-pounds of torque paired with a six-speed manual transmission. A continuously variable transmission, V6 engine and hybrid powertrain are also available.
The base LX model of the 2015 Honda Accord comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, power accessories and infotainment options including an 8-inch screen and Bluetooth connectivity. The Sport upgrade package adds 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler and a freer-flowing sport exhaust that ups power output to 189 horsepower and 182 foot-pounds of torque. The EX trim adds 17-inch wheels, a sunroof and power driver's seat, while the EX-L version incorporates leather upholstery and a standard CVT transmission. Finally, the V6 and V6 Touring trims of the Accord add a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 278 horsepower and 252 foot-pounds of torque, as well as many of the additional options of the EX trim. Option packages for the Accord coupe are similar, though larger 17-inch wheels are standard on these cars.
The Accord Hybrid uses a dual 2.0-liter four-cylinder combustion engine and electric motor setup good for 196 horsepower in combined operation with a fuel efficiency of 47 miles per gallon in combined driving. Trims are based on the EX and EX-L trims of the standard Accord. A plug-in option is also available for the Accord Hybrid that allows it to run for short periods on electricity alone.
