Check the latest automotive news, and you will notice that the 2017 Honda Accord is finally here, complete with its updates for the model year. The 2016 model already had significant updates, so the changes for the 2017 model are minor. After all, the previous version of the Accord already saw the addition of the Honda Sensing suite, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.
The configurations for the 2017 Honda Accord are familiar, including an option for everyone, whether you want a coupe or sedan and regardless of your engine preferences. The sedan with the 4-cylinder engine is available in five trim levels, including the LX, Sport, Sport Special Edition, EX, and EX-L. The sedan with a V6 engine lets you pick from the EX-L and Touring. The coupe has the same trim options with the V6 and the choice of LX-S, EX, or EX-L with a 4-cylinder. For the 2017 model year, the Honda Accord Hybrid also makes a return, meaning that you can enjoy the styling of this vehicle with even better efficiency.
Engines and Fuel Economy
If you aren’t sure which engine you will want in your 2017 Accord, consider their output and efficiency. The 2.4-liter 4-cylinder gives you 185 horsepower, although this increases to 189 in the Sport trim. The 3.5-liter V6 gets 278 horsepower. These will give you as much as 30 and 25 mpg combined*, respectively. The returned Accord Hybrid is clearly the best choice for those who want to save fuel, giving you an impressive rating of 49 mpg in the city and 47 on the highway*. Keep in mind that those figures are even better than they sound since they are based on the adjusted EPA figures for 2017.
The 2017 Accord will also come with all the standard features most Bradenton drivers want, such as Bluetooth, a rearview camera, cruise and audio controls on the steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The Honda Sensing suite is now available on any trim level, as well.
