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

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 Tourer around with purpose, even when you’re loaded up, 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.
