The Honda Accord is a masterful take on the refined sedan experience. Amongst a sizable list of competitors, the Honda Accord stands out as the pinnacle of quality over quantity. Sometimes, there’s no need to spend extra money on unnecessary features – sometimes, you seemingly pay for the brand name with some manufacturers – so why not save money and purchase a guaranteed winner? The 2024 Honda Accord is the very definition of practicality.
It has all the features that assist your daily commute to be ultimately more comfortable and delightful, along with qualities that allow this midsize sedan to be the irrefutable choice for the occasional out-of-state adventure thanks to incredible fuel efficiency. Almost fifty years since the Accord made its grand debut, the 2024 Accord is part of its ever-growing family. It arrives only one short year after a generational leap, so you can expect all the great additions from its predecessor to carry over.
The 2024 Accord springs into action with an MSRP of $27,895 for the LX trim.[a] Between the availability of powertrains, luxury features, and a list of trims to buy – the 2024 Accord always succeeds in the practical – but if you have the money to spring for more, the 2024 Accord EX starts at an MSRP of $29,910.[a]
This extra cost gets you more premium amenities like heated seats, dual-climate automatic climate controls, and a power moonroof, to name a few. Everything the 2024 Accord offers its drivers has a reason to be there, and that’s because Honda knows what drivers –especially commuters – want: comfort, efficiency, entertainment, and safety. Out of any manufacturer that caters to commuters and practical-vehicle-seeking drivers the most, it’s unambiguously Honda.

Torque (lb-ft): 192
Fuel Economy (city/hwy MPG): 29/37
The 2024 Honda Accord keeps the powertrain situation simple. Your 2024 Honda Accord, whether that’s the LX or EX model, will come with a turbocharged 1.5L I-4 engine. Paired with this engine is a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which has quickly become a staple of the modern-day driving experience, especially for automotive manufacturers that have used turbocharged engines.
Although not every turbocharged powertrain on the market pairs with a CVT, the one in the 2024 Accord does, so you can expect acceleration that beats out anything you’ve ever driven regarding the smoothness of when you’re gaining speed. Some people have likened the feeling of a CVT to the slick acceleration you feel if you were driving a go-kart – arguably, driving becomes more fun, and not to mention, your car will be quieter when traveling.
People have been discussing amongst themselves for years now – the conversation is only becoming more relevant – that CVTs are the way to go moving forward. There are still plenty of drivers who don’t drive a CVT vehicle out of a specific want for a manual transmission, for example. Still, there’s no denying that as vehicles become more user-friendly and especially more environmentally sound, CVTs are becoming a preferable replacement to the traditional automatic and manual transmissions that you may likely already be using. More experienced drivers know nothing but the traditional transmission methods, but even most old-school drivers can find immense enjoyment in the smoothness a CVT delivers, like the one in the 2024 Accord.
With the turbocharged 1.5L I-4 engine, the 2024 Honda Accord pushes out 192 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque. This makes the 2024 Honda Accord one of the most powerful midsize sedans on the market, and thanks to the turbocharged powertrain, it’s also one of the most fuel-efficient sedans of the 2024 models. The 2024 Accord comes with front-wheel drive, so both the LX and EX output the same type of fuel efficiency. The EPA-estimated fuel ratings for the 2024 Accord are as follows: 29 MPG in the city, 37 MPG on the highway, and 32 MPG combined.[b] The turbocharged engine’s most noteworthy benefits – power and efficiency – are both accounted for with articulate precision and its reasons, like performance, make the 2024 Accord more enchanting than others.
It’s a monumental task to list the benefits of each feature of the Accord, from its tech, interior, exterior, and more. But one thing that’s mutual between every last feature built into the 2024 Accord is a sense of place. Nothing feels out-of-place in the Accord, and depending on how much you spend on your Accord, you’ll never feel like you’re getting less than what you paid and what you may be expecting.
Starting with the base model – the Honda Accord LX – you get Honda’s flagship safety suite, Honda Sensing, and you also have a 7-inch infotainment center and USB ports that serve two purposes: you can plug in a USB device for either charging or data transfer. For example, if you simply want to charge your smartphone, you can plug in the proper USB cable. You can also use your phone’s connection to unlock the potential of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The Accord EX also comes with power-adjustable heated seats, which is worth noting for everyone, whether you’re a commuter or not.
It’s become somewhat of an unspoken rule that infotainment centers worth their salt include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto because it can greatly increase the versatility of these media centers without any extra software development on the end of the vehicle manufacturer. Some apps that are popular on suites like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can be downloaded from their inner app stores, such as apps like Waze for maps or Spotify for music, among many others.
Honda Sensing is one of the greatest parts of the Accord, from the EX onwards. Buying any 2024 Accord means you’re getting a Road Departure Mitigation System and Lane Keeping Assist System with Traffic Jam Assist. You’ll also have a sedan that can stop itself before various collisions because Honda Sensing comes with Honda’s Collision Mitigation Braking System. Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow is also with each Accord, as well as Traffic Sign Recognition. Honda Sensing can be taken further by purchasing a higher-tier trim, which will add features like Blind Spot Information with Cross Traffic Monitor and Parking Sensors.
The Accord is a refined sedan built on decades of experience. Honda knows how to do interiors, and the Accord has seen its fair share of interior rearrangements, features coming and going, and various headroom and legroom measurements. Still, the 2024 Honda Accord is a perfect combination of everything. The 2024 Accord has 16.7 cu.ft. of trunk space, making it one of the more cargo-capable midsize sedans on the market and one of the most passenger-friendly, with a passenger volume of 105.7 cu.ft. on the 2024 Accord LX, and 102.8 cu.ft. on each of the other trims.
If you’re using the 2024 Accord as your go-to ride for getting around both on your work days and weekends, you’ll have plenty of stretching room. Given that the 2024 Accord LX doesn’t come with the power moonroof, it has two additional inches of front-row headroom, 39.5 inches instead of the 37.5 inches in each of the other trims. The front-row leg, shoulder, and hip room are the same across the six trims, unlike the headroom – 42.3 inches of front-row legroom, 57.9 inches of front-row shoulder room, and 55.4 inches of hip room.
Sedans regularly don’t switch up interior measurements too greatly between the front and back rows of seats. The 2024 Accord has 37.3 inches of headroom in the rear row, but any model that’s not the LX has 37.2 inches. Legroom is identical across the trims for the rear row like it is for the first, with 40.8 inches of stretching room for rear-seat passengers’ legs.
Second-row passengers in the 2024 Accord have 55.4 inches of hip room, matching the front-row hip room measurement, and the 2024 Accord’s second row also has 56.5 inches of shoulder room. Honda has refined sedans down to a science, and when you’re sitting in the Accord and driving it down the road, you’ll get the satisfaction of a more open interior, which can make longer drives not seem so mentally and physically draining.
