2014 Honda Accord Overview

Is the 2014 Honda Accord a Good Used Car?

The 2014 Honda Accord is a good midsize car. Its cabin features upscale materials, an intuitive dashboard layout, and an easy-to-read display. The seats are comfortable and roomy for all occupants. In fact, the Accord’s back seats are some of the roomiest in the class. Trunk space is decent, but the lack of a split-folding rear seat makes carrying longer items impossible when you have rear-seat passengers. The Honda Accord’s agile handling makes it ideal for drivers who prefer fun over comfort. It also returns good fuel economy estimates. Still, several rivals provide a better value by offering similar benefits with lower ownership costs.

Which Model Year of the Honda Accord Is Best?

Honda fully redesigned the Accord for 2013, and it received no significant changes for 2014 or 2015. The Accord was refreshed for the 2016 model year, receiving updated exterior styling and available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Additionally, the Honda Sensing package of active safety features became optional for all trims. There were no changes for 2017 – the last model year before the Accord’s complete redesign for 2018.

Unless the Honda Sensing or smartphone integration packages are important to you, consider the 2013 Accord, which offers the lowest average price and the same features as newer 2014 and 2015 models.

Which Used Honda Accord Model Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Accord sedan has six trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L V6, and Touring. The 2014 Accord Coupe has four trims: LX-S, EX, EX-L, and EX-L V6. The base LX sedan and LX-S coupe are equipped with a 185-horsepower four-cylinder engine. They also come with desirable standard features like dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, and a USB port. These base trims should satisfy the majority of shoppers.

The Honda Accord Sport offers a few design elements and a 3-horsepower boost. EX models add a moonroof and proximity key. The EX-L V-6 and Touring trims come with the available V6 engine, making them the best option for shoppers who want maximum power.

What Does Honda's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Honda offers two levels of certification for its certified pre-owned vehicles: HondaTrue Certified and HondaTrue Certified+. Both levels come with a seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, roadside assistance, up to two oil changes within the first year of ownership, and a 90-day SiriusXM satellite radio trial subscription.

The vehicle’s model year determines which program and repair coverage it qualifies for. HondaTrue Certified covers vehicles from the 2014 through 2020 model years. For vehicles still under the new-car warranty, Honda extends coverage to four years from the original sale date or 48,000 miles. For vehicles outside the new-car warranty, Honda offers a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty. HondaTrue Certified+ is for 2018 to 2020 Hondas still under the new-car warranty. Honda extends these warranties to five years from the original sale date or 86,000 miles. Additional benefits may be available, so read Honda’s warranty page carefully.

According to our analysis, Honda’s CPO program is better than that offered by many other affordable carmakers. Still, Chevrolet, Kia, and Hyundai have better programs.

2014 Honda Accord Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2014 Honda Accord or 2014 Mazda6?

While the Honda Accord has relatively agile handling, the 2014 Mazda6 is even more fun-to-drive, and it returns better gas mileage. Both cars have roomy back seats, but unlike the Accord, the Mazda6 has split-folding rear seats. Despite the Mazda6’s appeal, the 2014 Honda Accord is the better choice for used car shoppers due to its higher reliability rating.

Which Is Better: 2014 Honda Accord or 2014 Hyundai Sonata?

The 2014 Hyundai Sonata doesn’t offer the lively driving dynamics of the Accord, but it does have some performance highlights. It offers a stronger base engine and a balanced ride, delivering both sportiness and comfort. Like the Accord, the Sonata has a nice-looking interior with a good number of features. The Accord is a bit roomier, but the Sonata is a better car overall, mainly due to its above-average reliability rating and lower ownership costs.
