Let’s take a look at performance and fuel economy real quick. The 2014 Accord comes standard with a 2.4L four-cylinder engine producing 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.

Similarly to Edmunds, Autotrader were fans of the Accord. They especially like how the new Accord offers a number of standard features, saying, “You no longer have to spring for the pricey EX if you want cool features, because even the mainstream LX comes standard with alloy wheels, Bluetooth, USB connectivity and dual-zone automatic climate control.”

Consumer Guide had three different reviewers take a look at the 2014 Honda Accord, and they were all pleased. One reviewer was quite enamored with a particular safety option: “a feature that first appeared on the Accord is a camera built into the right-side rearview mirror. It automatically switches on whenever you activate the right turn signal, displaying an image of what otherwise would be your blind spot on the dashboard screen. Very handy. And safe.”
In addition to the standard rearview camera, drivers can also get the Honda LaneWatch system. Once activated, a camera in the right side mirror is show in the eight-inch display screen. It’s easy to get used to and makes changing lanes very simple.
