2017 Honda Accord Overview
Featuring a bold sport sedan build and full LED lighting, the 2017 Honda Accord strikes a pose wherever it goes. The Accord has a longstanding reputation for offering expansive seating room in both of its rows. Measuring in at 42.5 inches of legroom in the front seat and 38.5 inches in the back, passengers of all heights and sizes will find it easy to settle into the Accord’s spacious seats.
For 2017, the Accord is available in seven trims, from the base LX to the top Touring, allowing you to pick the features and equipment that’ll work best for you.
Nestled in between the Sport and EX trims, you’ll find the newest Accord entrant for 2017, the Sport Special Edition. This unique Accord variant offers an edgy, track-inspired interior with leather-trimmed upholstery and red accent stitching.
On the road, the 2017 Honda Accord is poised and powerful. Buyers have their choice of a 4-cylinder engine rated at 185 horsepower or a larger, 278-horsepower V6 that delivers effortless acceleration that’s well-suited to driving on the highway.
These two engines offer a 6-speed manual transmission, continuously variable transmission, or a 6-speed automatic. With standard equipment selected, the 2017 Honda Accord earns an EPA-estimated 23 city/32 highway MPG.* Quick-witted steering in the Accord helps you make concise driving maneuvers and handle smoothly around corners.
