2016 Honda Accord Sedan
Citrus Heights Loves the 2016 Honda Accord Sedan
There’s a lot to like about the 2016 Honda Accord sedan, just ask anyone from Citrus Heights. The four door sports a modern new face and a top-quality interior. Its safety credentials are outstanding. Finally, the Accord’s handling is responsive and crisp for a mid-size family sedan.
For 2016, the Accord comes with a more rigid body, a refreshed front grille, and more standard equipment on select trim levels. The new Honda Sensing package comes either standard (Touring) or is available as an option. Road-departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist are just some of the advanced safety features that come with this package.
Each Honda Accord sedan is powered by either a four- or six-cylinder engine. The former is offered on the base LX, Sport, EX and EX-L trim levels, while the latter is found on the EX-L and Touring. All come with standard four channel anti-lock disc brakes with brake and hill start assist; stability with traction control; a tire pressure monitoring system; a rearview camera; and front, front-side, and side-curtain airbags. The NHTSA gave five out of five stars in overall safety to the Accord sedan while the IIHS awarded its highest rating of “Good” to the car in various crash tests like roof strength.
2016 Accord Puts Up Impressive Mileage and Performance Numbers that Wow Citrus Heights Area Honda Buyers
Citrus Heights area Honda buyers love the four-cylinder engine found in the LX, EX and EX-L because it churns out 185 horsepower and 181 lb.-ft. of torque to the front wheels. Output of the Sport’s specially tuned engine is slightly higher at 189 and 182 respectively. Transmission is either a six-speed manual or CVT with the subsequent fuel economy ranging between 27 mpg in combined driving with the manny to 31 mpg combined with the CVT.* The reviewers over at KBB had this to say especially about the Accord’s CVT: “Plenty of carmakers offer CVTs these days to improve fuel economy, but the Honda Accord's available CVT is one of the smoothest, responsive CVTs in the business. It's almost imperceptible in its operation, which is a huge compliment for a CVT automatic.”
For Citrus Heights area Honda Shoppers looking for a little more performance, the V-6 engine powering the EX-L V-6 and Touring is rated at 278 horsepower and 252 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. The EPA rates V-6 Accord sedans to get an estimated 26 mpg combined, an impressive figure for a gas powered vehicle in the segment.
The Honda Accord sedan is also offered in a couple of hybrid models. They are not covered in this review.
