2014 Honda Accord Touring

· Comments Closed · Honda

The 2014 Honda Accord Touring model is the first luxury sedan redesigned platform. Like all Touring models Accord, which has a 278-horsepower 3.5-liter V6. Since one of our long term car is a 4 cylinder Accord EX​​-L, this made for some interesting comparisons in the office.  As expected, everyone agreed that the V6 offers more grunt than our long-term EX-L 4-cylinder. But most of us also found the extra power was not needed. After all, the EX-L 4-cylinder that makes 185 horsepower and reaches 60 mph in less than eight seconds. That’s not far behind, especially for a midsize sedan.

Beyond its engine, transmission Accord Touring left us satisfied. The four-cylinder models use a CVT, while all V6 Accords use a 6-speed automatic. That’s interesting, because it shows that the CVT once maligned have taken important steps in the refinement in recent years. The agreement is the 6-speed automatic seems to hunt for the right engine speed. It offers everything you’ve always done big Agreement. For example, the interior is spacious and comfortable, with seating able to manipulate the units of length. Style is sober – or, as one tester said, “not wildly overstyled.” There are many luxury features. And the cabin is composed of high quality materials.

2014 Honda Accord Touring Interior

Inside the cabin, the Accord Touring was anything but your typical midsize sedan, as it was better than the Acura loaded before it, which was quite strange considering they are built by the same company. The leather seats are soft, flexible and supportive, the steering wheel feels good, despite numbness on the back seat is very large and the camera blind spot is just fantastic.  One thing I did not care for was the learning curve in the infotainment system, as some features are buried within the menus and sometimes I felt lost. Also, although it was well equipped, I felt the interior was rather boring and lacked real character.  Back to good things though; Rear seats have 38.5 inches of legroom, which is plenty for most adults, and the trunk holds a respectable 15.5 cubes load.

Under the hood of the 2014 Honda Accord Touring is the 3.5-liter V-6 we’ve seen in many models of Honda and Acura. This engine is a little tired, and it’s really due for an update soon. Fortunately, remains competent to move around the sedan, thanks to 278 horses and 252 foot-pounds of torque. The engine mates to a six-speed automatic transmission with “Sport” mode. While this mode “Sport” it’s a cool feature, do not expect other than a revised point change for a more efficient use power band anything.  One thing I loved about the Agreement, despite its outdated engine, which is still pretty fast. Sixty mph happens in just over six seconds, making it one of the fastest in its class, and is rated at 21 mpg city, 34 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined. Not a sports car, but it’s still a hoot to hammer the accelerator and feel this carrier shift to a family hauler ass.
