If you’re shopping for a brand-new sedan that meets a high standard for safety and reliability, you can’t get much better than a 2022 Honda Accord. The Accord is available with two different powertrains: a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 192 horsepower or a more powerful 252-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The powertrains come paired to either a continuously variable transmission or a 10-speed automatic transmission, both offering smooth shifting and optimal performance.
The 1.5L turbo I-4 powertrain offers the best possible fuel efficiency. You’ll get an EPA-estimated 30 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway, so wave to the gas station attendant as you pass by because the fuel tank holds enough gas to deliver you to the weekend road trip destination nonstop.[b] Opting for the more powerful 2.0L turbo I-4 engine still gets you plenty of fuel economy. On average, you’ll see a very respectable EPA-estimated 22 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway.[b] Whether you go with an Accord, you’ll enjoy category-leading low fuel costs.
The Honda nameplate is synonymous with safety, as evidenced by the Honda Sensing driver-assist safety suite that’s standard across the entire trim range. It features more systems than nearly any other competing sedan, all designed to keep the driver alert and all occupants out of harm’s way. These systems rely on sensors, cameras, and radar to continuously monitor the area surrounding the vehicle, nudging or alerting the driver when conditions change.
The Collision Mitigation Braking System and Forward Collision Warning combine to help drivers avoid an accident. The warning system senses when a collision is possible and alerts the driver to slow down. Meanwhile, the mitigation system will apply the brakes automatically to help avoid or minimize the severity of a crash. Adaptive Cruise Control is included in the suite and helps drivers automatically stay a set distance away from the vehicle ahead. The system adjusts speed with traffic flow to maintain enough space for safe braking should it be required.
The Lane Departure Warning and Road Departure Mitigation System each complement the other, with the former alerting the driver when it senses the vehicle drifting out of its lane and the latter sending gentle steering nudges to encourage the car back where it belongs. Meanwhile, the standard Traffic Sign Recognition System keeps an eye on changing speed limits, notifying the driver when a change in speed is necessary. All Accord trims also feature Auto High-Beam Headlights, taking the tedious chore of manually switching out of the driver’s hands.
While Honda equips every Accord trim with tons of standard features, the highest trims are the most luxurious. Sometimes, only the best will do, even if the first item on your must-have list is practicality. The 2022 Honda Accord Touring is reserved for discerning buyers who want all the bells and whistles. This trim is loaded with comfort and convenience features, along with plush interior finishes that rival many German imports yet cost a fraction of the price.
Slide into the perforated leather driver’s seat and take advantage of the 12-way power adjustments to dial in a customized fit. You can select from heat or ventilation to dial in the ideal temperature for your front seats as you settle in for the driver. Next, dial in your favorite playlist on the standard 10-speaker 450-watt audio system with an included subwoofer for concert-grade sound throughout your commute. The Accord Touring also includes a HomeLink Remote System featuring programmable buttons for your garage door. An automatic-dimming rearview mirror is also standard.
Honda doesn’t reserve luxury only for the most expensive trims. All passengers will love the standard dual-zone automatic climate control found on every Accord trim, along with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. A push button start is also included in the long list of standard equipment on every Accord, and all but the base LX feature automatic on/off LED headlights.
While not commonly considered a luxury feature, the Accord’s 16.7 cubic feet of available trunk space and 105.6 cubic feet of passenger volume feel expansive, even to back seat passengers. The Accord’s back seat is roomier than that of its competitors, which is great if you have a family you drive around. Only the top-tier trims come with leather seating, but even the cloth seats on less expensive versions are appealing and comfortable.
Like most 2022 cars, trucks, and SUVs, the Accord is loaded with connected features and infotainment capabilities. Unlike most mid-size sedans, Honda equips all Accord trims with a generous 8-inch infotainment touchscreen. It’s compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so connecting a smartphone and interacting with apps and phone navigation systems is a snap. The touchscreen has a high-resolution display, and Honda throws in a set of knobs that the primary controls, a great redundancy for old-school tech-wary drivers.
Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard on the Sport when it’s equipped with the larger 2.0-liter engine, the EX-L, and the Touring. Honda also throws in a standard wireless device charger on the EX-L and Touring models. The Accord’s audio system is designed to vary the volume to compensate for road noise as speed increases, giving drivers a better acoustic experience. That’s great news for Touring trim buyers, who will love the 450-watt premium 10-speaker audio system that includes a subwoofer. All but the base model receive an 8-speaker system, and the base LX is equipped with a 4-speaker stereo.
The Accord Touring adds connected navigation to the list of amenities. The system offers real-time traffic updates via its satellite-linked connectivity, so you’ll always be able to display the fastest route to your destination. The robust subscription-based HondaLink connected services are also found on the Touring, allowing drivers to equip their smartphones to act as a remote key. A Wi-Fi Hotspot is also included in the long list of connected technology found on the top-of-the-line Accord Touring.
Safety goes high tech on the 2022 Accord with a generous suite of semi-autonomous driver-assist systems added as standard across the trim range. The suite includes a surprising variety of features, including the Traffic Sign Recognition System, which can read and interpret typical road signs, like speed limit signs, and translate that information to the driver. Automatic high beam headlights are also included, relieving the driver of the monotonous chore of switching back and forth.
