2017 Honda Accord Review

The 2017 Honda Accord comes well-equipped, and it has a comfortable ride and a quick-shifting transmission. However, its below-average predicted reliability rating and oddly shaped trunk push it toward the bottom of our midsize car rankings.

Pros & Cons

  • Comfortable ride
  • Excellent fuel economy
  • Responsive optional CVT
  • Awkwardly shaped trunk
  • Below-average predicted reliability rating

2017 Honda Accord Overview

Is the 2017 Honda Accord a Good Used Car?

The Honda Accord has a well-earned, long-standing reputation as a good car. However, a used 2017 Honda Accord doesn’t quite live up those standards, mainly due to its subpar predicted reliability rating. Aside from that, this staple of the American road – available as a sedan or coupe – is a decent family or commuter car. It has sufficient engine power, a comfortable ride, and a responsive transmission. Its cabin features high-quality materials, a good number of features, and comfortable seats. Although trunk room is above-average for the class, loading bulky items into the space can be a challenge. A used 2017 Honda Accord is a decent car in most regards, but there are better and more reliable options in the class.

How Much Does the 2017 Honda Accord Cost to Own?

The 2017 Honda Accord’s five-year estimated costs for gas, insurance, maintenance, and repairs is about $24,000. Cost estimates are a little lower for competitors like the Nissan Altima ($22,500) Toyota Camry ($23,800), and Hyundai Sonata ($22,700).

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Honda Accord?

Pricing for a 2018 Honda Accord starts at $23,570, which is $870 higher than the average price of a used 2017 model. That’s not much of a price jump, considering that the newer Accord is fully redesigned for the first time since the 2013 model year. It has a lighter body and a retooled chassis for improved ride. It also gains a turbocharged engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission. Finally, the Honda Sensing suite of safety features – including traffic sign recognition – comes standard with the 2018 model.

There are also a number of newly available features for 2018, including a head-up display, smartphone controls for entry and engine start, 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, and wireless device charging. With the number of appealing technology and safety features offered in the 2018 Honda Accord, it’s undoubtedly the better value.

The 2018 Accord is a great new-car choice, but it’s not the only one. There are other new midsize cars you can purchase for about the same price as a used 2017 Accord. The 2018 Hyundai Sonata is a great option that starts at $22,050. It features plenty of trunk space, comfy seats, great fuel economy, and easy-to-use cabin technology. You should also consider the 2018 Ford Fusion, which starts at $22,215. With ample trunk and cabin space, it’s one of the roomiest cars in the class. The Fusion has balanced handling and a straightforward available infotainment system.

Which Model Year of the Honda Accord Is Best?

The 2017 Accord is the final model year of a generation that began for 2013. While you can save money by purchasing a model from 2015 or earlier, we don’t recommend it. The 2016 model gained several significant upgrades, including refreshed styling, available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and the available Honda Sensing suite of safety features. The 2017 adds nothing grand, so buy the 2016 to save yourself some cash.

Which Used Honda Accord Model Is Right for Me?

The 2017 Accord has six major trim levels: LX, Sport, SE, EX, EX-L, and Touring. The base Honda Accord LX model comes well-equipped with technology and convenience features. Standard features include Bluetooth, a USB port, a 7.7-inch display, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a rearview camera. Unless you want the latest tech and safety features or luxury amenities, the base trim will most likely meet your needs.

The Honda Accord Sport doesn’t add much besides a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and 60/40 spit-folding rear seats. New for 2017, the Honda Accord Sport SE trim gives you leather upholstery and heated front seats.

The Honda Accord EX offers high-tech features and additional audio options. It comes with a moonroof, push-button start, Honda’s LaneWatch blind spot monitor, HD Radio, satellite radio, an additional 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

The Honda Accord EX-L adds leather upholstery, heated front seats, and an upgraded stereo. There are three additional sub-trims: EX-L with Navigation, EX-L V-6, and EX-L V-6 with Navigation. The EX-L and the Touring trim are the only two that offer the V6 engine. The top-of-the-line Honda Accord Touring trim comes standard with the V6, navigation, front and rear parking sensors, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

Certified Pre-Owned Honda Accord Warranty

Certified pre-owned vehicles are a great option for used car shoppers. 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.

Most automotive manufacturers offer a CPO program, but Honda’s is one of the best, according our analysis. Still, there are a few rival brands’ programs that may offer additional services that Honda doesn’t. Among them are Buick, GMC, and Chevrolet.

2017 Honda Accord Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2017 Honda Accord or 2017 Toyota Camry?

The Toyota Camry and Honda Accord are two of the best-selling midsize cars on the market. They both offer a comfortable and fairly composed ride. However, the Accord has a much nicer interior than the Camry. The Accord also has many more standard and available features, as well as a larger trunk. While it may seem that the Honda sedan is the clear winner between the two, the Toyota Camry’s perfect predicted reliability rating pushes it above the Accord in our rankings. The Honda Accord gives you more for your money, but peace of mind may be more valuable.

Which Is Better: 2017 Honda Accord or 2017 Nissan Altima?

The Nissan Altima does a number of things better than the Honda Accord. The Altima uses less fuel, has a better predicted reliability rating, and some of the most comfortable seats in the class. It also comes standard with forward collision warning with brake assist. The Nissan has fewer standard features and a less upscale interior, but it’s a solid car overall. Both are good buys.

2017 Honda Accord Performance

How Does the 2017 Honda Accord Drive?

The base engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission or an available continuously variable automatic transmission. You get quicker acceleration from the available 278-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6, which is mated to a six-speed automatic in the sedan model or a six-speed manual in coupe models.

Does the 2017 Honda Accord Get Good Gas Mileage?

With either engine option, the Honda Accord gets excellent fuel economy for the class. With the base engine and automatic transmission, the Accord returns 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. Expect 21/33 mpg city/ highway with the V6 engine and automatic transmission. For even better gas mileage, check out the Honda Accord Hybrid, which is reviewed separately.

How Many People Does the 2017 Honda Accord Seat?

The Honda Accord seats five, in both coupe and sedan body styles. Up front, the seats are roomy and supportive. The same is true of the rear seats in the sedan, but the coupe’s tight back seats are only suitable for short trips. The cabin has attractive styling and top-notch materials that you can expect to last a long time. 

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2017 Honda Accord?

The rear outboard seats have both upper and lower anchors, and the middle seat has only an upper tether. This LATCH system received the second-highest rating of Acceptable for its ease of use. The Accord coupe’s LATCH system received a Marginal rating, the second-lowest rating.

2017 Honda Accord Features

The Accord comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, a four-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a 7.7-inch display. Options include a power moonroof, push-button start, HD Radio, satellite radio, a seven-speaker premium audio system, navigation, an additional 7-inch touch-screen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

The base Accord has one non-touch-screen infotainment system that displays basic information like radio settings, and it allows you to connect your phone via Bluetooth. Climate and audio settings are controlled via physical buttons and knobs. Upper trims include a second infotainment system that replaces the buttons and knobs with a touch screen that recognizes gestures like swiping and pinching. With this second infotainment system, you’re forced to use the touch screen for commonly used features like audio and climate settings, which can be more time consuming than using the controls in the base model.
