What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The button operated-tailgate and easy-fold seats are great, as is the boot. The car drives smoothly, too

Against Running costs and restricted rear visibility are a pain. The Mazda 6 is as practical but cheaper

Verdict The fine drive, good boot and high equipment levels are great, but it's a pricey car

Go for… 2.2 i-CTDi Sport

Avoid… 2.4 Executive

Honda Accord Tourer
  • 1. The load bay is huge, and the seats drop at the click of a single catch to leave a flat floor
  • 2. Diesel engine needs regular top-ups of oil, which can be irritating - and adds to your running costs
  • 3. Servicing an Accord at a main dealer costs about half as much again as for a Ford Mondeo or Vauxhall Vectra
  • 4. Accords suffer few problems, but some have needed their wheel bearings replaced earlier than expected
  • 5. No complaint about the space inside - the Accord is roomy throughout
