2010 Honda Accord Sdn 4dr I4 Auto EX-L

There's little wonder that, as of this writing, the used Honda Accord is second only to the Ford F-Series in U.S. sales. The current generation arrived in late 2007, and it continues to offer enough qualities to land it high on any family-car shopper's list. Alas, not all is perfect. Honda has dropped the ball in a few areas, and it's particularly evident when you compare our test car, a midlevel Accord EX, with what similar money buys from the competition.
Typical of a family car, the Honda Accord sedan offers a four-cylinder or V-6 engine with manual or automatic transmissions. In ascending order, trim levels are the LX, LX-P, EX and EX-L. An Accord Coupe is also available; it comes in LX-S, EX and EX-L trims. This time we tested a four-cylinder EX sedan with an automatic, but I've driven most other Accord variants, too.
For 2010, Honda introduced a wagon offshoot dubbed the Accord Crosstour. Little has changed between the 2009 and 2010 Accord. The Accord's four-cylinder makes 177 horsepower in LX and LX-P models. It's tuned for 190 hp in EX and EX-L sedans, and in all four-cylinder Accord coupes. The differences between the engines are only apparent when merging onto the freeway or pushing the car hard on hilly terrain. With virtually identical torque, stop-and-go oomph is similar. Both are quick enough, albeit not as sprightly as a four-cylinder Nissan Altima or Suzuki Kizashi.
A five-speed manual is standard. The optional five-speed automatic upshifts smoothly, but its lower gears — particularly second — feel awfully long; this is where a six-speed automatic might come in handy. Acceleration aside, Honda's five-speed doles out quick downshifts and generally puts you in the gear you need. I'll take that over an indecisive transmission regardless of its gear count. Two things stand out about the cabin. One, it's big. The Accord's interior volume ranks it in the EPA's full-size category, and it shows. Headroom and legroom up front are abundant; the gearshift sits low, and there's enough room sculpted out around it for your knees to go where they may. Equally impressive is the backseat — there's room to stretch out, and the seat is large enough and high enough for adults to have ample thigh support. Too many competing backseats have one but not the other.
