2015 Honda Accord Review

The 2015 Honda Accord ranks well thanks to a spacious cabin, plentiful engine power, and great fuel economy. However, it has dull steering responses, and its available infotainment system is tricky to use.

Pros & Cons

  • Brisk acceleration
  • Fuel-efficient base engine
  • Roomy, inviting interior

 

  • Numb steering
  • Frustrating available infotainment system

 

2015 Honda Accord Overview

Is the 2015 Honda Accord a Good Used Car?

The Accord is an excellent value among midsize cars, thanks to its well-rounded performance and comfortable, upscale interior.

Used 2015 Honda Accord Performance and Interior

Most Accord models feature a four-cylinder engine, but some have a V6 instead. A six-speed manual transmission comes standard with both engines. With four-cylinder models, a continuously variable automatic transmission is available, and V6 models offer a six-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard. Four-cylinder-powered Accords are surprisingly spry, and the V6 is even livelier. Gas mileage is good for the class: 18-27 mpg in the city and 28-35 mpg on the highway. The Accord is agile for a midsize car, though some classmates have more responsive steering. We review the Honda Accord Hybrid separately.

The Accord seats five and boasts a stylish cabin, with quality materials and impeccable fit and finish. Cloth seats come standard, and leather upholstery and power-adjustable heated front seats are available. The Accord is available as a sedan or a two-door coupe. The front seats are roomy with either body style. In the Honda Accord sedan, rear-seat passengers have plenty of room, but the coupe’s rear quarters are cramped (a common complaint of two-door cars). There are two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors in the rear outboard seats and a tether-only connection in the middle seat.

Dual-zone automatic climate control and an infotainment system with an 8-inch display come standard. The system has straightforward controls, and you can use the standard Bluetooth, USB input, or Pandora integration to connect to your music. Upper trims employ an available dual-screen HondaLink touch-screen system that has a complicated menu structure, so it’s best to avoid if possible. Available features include a sunroof, push-button start, a proximity key, satellite radio, and navigation.

How Safe Is the Accord?

The Accord has impressive safety scores. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named it a 2015 Top Safety Pick, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave it a perfect five-star overall rating.

A rearview camera comes standard, and the Accord offers a good amount of available driver assistance features. Upper trims add forward collision warning, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and Honda LaneWatch, which uses a camera in the passenger-side mirror to help you see your blind spot by showing the camera's feed on the center-stack display screen.

Should I Consider Another Used Accord?

The 2015 model is part of the Honda Accord’s ninth generation, which began with the 2013 model and ends with the 2017 Accord (2018 launches the Accord's 10th generation). Go for a 2013 or 2014 model. Both come with similar features as the 2015 Accord but typically cost less.

Which Used Honda Accord Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Honda Accord comes in six trims: LX, LX-S, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring. The EX trim is the smart choice for most shoppers. It comes with features like Honda LaneWatch, push-button start, a proximity key, fog lights, and a sunroof.

A certified pre-owned Accord costs more but gives you added coverage. Honda extends its original new-car limited powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles for all certified pre-owned models, and it extends the new-car non-powertrain warranty to four years or 48,000 miles. If the CPO Honda you purchase is more than four years old or has more than 48,000 miles, you’ll receive a one-year/12,000-mile non-powertrain limited warranty. Honda CPO vehicles must pass a 182-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read Honda’s warranty page carefully.

2015 Honda Accord and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Honda Accord or 2015 Toyota Camry?

The Toyota Camry comes with a well-appointed interior, comfortable seats, and lots of room. The Accord is the sportier option, with its nimble handling, coupe body style availability, and optional manual transmission. Unlike the Camry, the Accord comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control and a larger 8-inch touch screen. The Camry, however, earns a class-leading predicted reliability rating, which attracts buyers in droves.

Which Is Better: 2015 Honda Accord or 2015 Mazda6?

The Mazda6 is one of the sportiest midsize cars you can buy. The Mazda touts spry acceleration and sharp handling, and it achieves better fuel economy ratings than the Accord. Unlike the Accord, however, the Mazda6 lacks a more powerful available engine, and it occasionally has a stiff ride, especially when equipped with larger wheels. If athletic road manners are a top priority, go for the Mazda6. If you’re looking for a well-rounded car with a higher reliability score, get the Accord.

Which Is Better: 2015 Honda Accord or 2015 Hyundai Sonata?

Compared to the Accord, the Hyundai Sonata has better fuel economy estimates and a larger trunk than its Honda counterpart, but the Accord's rear seats are roomier. Two four-cylinder engines are available for the Sonata, including a turbocharged power plant that makes V6-equivalent power. Both cars have numb steering, but the Sonata’s blander road manners make the Accord the sportier choice. Each sedan earns above-average safety and predicted reliability ratings, so make your choice based on model availability and your personal preferences.

Which Is Better: 2015 Honda Accord or 2015 Honda Crosstour?

Like the Accord, the Honda Crosstour has a high-quality interior, four-cylinder and V6 engines, and spacious seating. The Crosstour’s larger cargo hold, hatchback/wagon body style, and available all-wheel drive set it apart from the Accord. However, your wallet will appreciate the Accord’s lower average price and superior fuel economy. The Crosstour comes with a power-adjustable driver’s seat and a moonroof, while the Accord has standard dual-zone automatic climate control and hands-free text messaging. The Accord also has available adaptive cruise control, which you can’t get in the Crosstour.
