2018 Honda Accord

Honda Accord details at a glance:

  • 1.5-liter four cylinder engine
  • 192 horsepower, 192 lb-ft of torque
  • Seven-inch touchscreen
  • Forward collision warning

The 2018 Honda Accord is sure to catch your eye for many reasons. There’s its sleek and luxurious styling, comfortable and tech-filled interior, spacious cargo area, and its fun-to-drive nature.

The standard engine is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque and pairs with an efficient continuously variable transmission. Also available is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, which comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Even the base trim is incredibly well-equipped, coming standard with a seven-inch touchscreen, a four-speaker sound system with a USB port, a rearview camera, lane departure warning and intervention, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

2017 Chrysler 200

The 2017 Chrysler 200 is another midsize sedan you might consider, but we think when you look closely, you’ll see that it pales in many areas in comparison to the Honda Accord.

It comes with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 184 horsepower and 173 lb-ft of torque, falling slightly short of the power of the Honda Accord. A 3.6-liter V6 engine is also available.

Chrysler 200 details at a glance:

  • 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine
  • 184 horsepower, 173 lb-ft of torque
  • Four-speaker sound system
  • USB port

Although a four-speaker sound system with a USB port is standard, a touchscreen is not. To get the latest driver assistance features like forward collision warning and lane departure warning, you’ll have to opt for a package at additional cost. Why pay more for something that comes standard on lower trim levels in the Honda Accord?
