For The Accord is offered with some powerful engines, and there’s lots of safety kit supplied as standard.

Against The car isn’t as comfortable or as quiet as a family car should be, while the interior isn’t as classy or as practical as those of most rivals. The Accord costs a lot more to buy and run than most of them, too.

The Honda Accord is a decent car in isolation, but when you compare it with newer family car rivals, it trails in a number of key areas. It’s also too pricey to recommend, both to buy and to run.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Of the four engines on offer, we’d recommend the less powerful 2.2-litre diesel. It’s plenty strong enough to haul the Accord around with purpose, and it has the lowest running costs of any engine in the range. Be warned, though; the fuel consumption and emissions figures are some way behind those of newer rivals, so it’s still a comparatively expensive car to run.

Of the four trims available, we’d stick with the entry-level ES. It misses some desirable items like Bluetooth, but it keeps purchase prices down a bit.
