What’s new

Touring model is no longer available with 1.5T engine
Part of the 10th Accord generation introduced for 2018

The base LX has a ton of features for the money, and the Sport’s unique exterior styling helps it stand out. If you can stretch your budget a little bit, we think it’s worth upgrading to the EX. The additional USB port and rear air vents make it a little more accommodating to passengers, while the heated front seats and keyless entry feature make it a bit more luxurious for the driver. The EX also adds a blind-spot monitor, which checks to see if the coast is clear when changing lanes.

OVERVIEW

No segment in the auto industry has seen more recent changes and updates than the midsize-sedan class. Nearly every model has been refreshed or redesigned over the last year, including the Honda Accord. The 10th-generation Accord debuted in 2018, and in our eyes, its healthy list of improvements and all-around excellence quickly vaulted it to the top of the class. The Accord stays the course for 2019 — the only change is that the top-trim Touring is no longer available with the base engine.

The Accord’s all-around excellence makes it hard to pinpoint just one thing that sets it apart from the rest. It has the practical stuff locked down: The trunk is positively huge, as is the cabin. Honda has the tech front covered, too. A considerable number of advanced safety features are standard, and every model except the base LX comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Accord also retains the fun-to-drive personality of older models, especially when equipped with the larger engine and Touring-exclusive adaptive dampers.

If you’re in the market for a midsize sedan, there’s no reason the Accord shouldn’t be on your short list. The field is stacked with solid choices, but the 2019 Honda Accord offers the best mix of value, practicality and personality.

Notably, we picked the 2019 Honda Accord as one of Edmunds’ Best Family Cars, Best Midsize Sedans for this year.

Honda Accord models

The 2019 Honda Accord is sold in five trim levels: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Touring. The LX is the most affordable model but is still reasonably well-equipped. The Sport doesn’t cost much more and comes with some visual upgrades, while the EX and the EX-L add more convenience features. The top-trim Touring loads up with every feature available.

A turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine (192 horsepower, 192 pound-feet of torque) is standard on all trim levels except the Touring. It comes connected to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) that drives the front wheels.

If you’re looking for a little more excitement, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (252 hp, 273 lb-ft) is available on Sport, EX-L and Touring models. A 10-speed traditional automatic is paired with this engine. A six-speed manual transmission is a no-cost option on the Sport model regardless of engine.

Standard features on the base LX model include 17-inch alloy wheels, LED exterior lighting (headlights, taillights and running lights), automatic high-beam control, push-button ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, Bluetooth, a 7-inch touchscreen, and a four-speaker audio system with a USB port. Standard driver aids include lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

Upgrading to the Sport adds 19-inch wheels, larger front brakes, LED foglights, a rear spoiler, chrome exhaust tips, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a 60/40-split rear bench, cloth and simulated-leather upholstery, an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and an eight-speaker audio system. CVT automatic-equipped models also come with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

The EX builds off the LX model, adding the Sport’s interior upgrades (minus the Sport’s unique upholstery, shift paddles and leather-wrapped steering wheel), 17-inch wheels, heated mirrors, a sunroof, keyless entry and ignition, blind-spot monitoring, heated front seats, rear air vents, an additional USB port, and satellite and HD radio.

The EX-L further adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power-adjustable passenger seat, driver-seat memory settings, leather upholstery and a 10-speaker audio system. A navigation system is optional.

Models with the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine are essentially the same as their 1.5-liter counterparts, but the Sport 2.0T is equipped with keyless entry, heated front seats and blind-spot monitoring. Models with the automatic transmission also come with shift paddles, and all are equipped with the Sport’s larger front brakes and chrome exhaust tips.

At the top of the ladder is the Touring trim, which includes 19-inch wheels, adaptive suspension dampers, chrome exterior trim, illuminated door handles, automatic wipers, front and rear parking sensors, adjustable driving modes, a head-up display, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a navigation system, a Wi-Fi hotspot and a wireless phone charger.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Honda Accord Touring (turbo 1.5L inline-4 | CVT automatic | FWD) and Honda Accord EX-L (turbo 1.5L inline-4 | CVT automatic | FWD).
