2020 Honda Accord Sedan for sale in Edmonton, AB
There was a time when the midsize sedan segment was probably the most fiercely contested areas of the auto market and the Honda Accord was one of the most highly regarded among its peers. The focus of the market may have shifted in recent times, but the 2020 Accord is better than this staggeringly consistent model has ever been and it's a car you should definitely give a second look to even if you're leaning towards an SUV.
The 2020 Accord is an enticing mix of style, practicality, interior space, quality and affordability, and it definitely shows that sedans are still more than relevant in today's market. Fashions come and go, but this type of style and quality endures.
Classy lines and lots to admire
There's a definite theme running through the styling of the entire Honda portfolio these days, and it's probably fair to say that a lot of it stems from the Accord. The way the exterior styling of the Accord has been honed and developed over the years has been something of a blueprint recently for the Civic, CR-V and other hugely successful Honda models, and the 2020 Honda Accord Sedan is a great example of why that is.
The latest Accord is sleek, contemporary and stylish from every angle, but it's also an extremely practical car that suits a wide range of different buyers and applications.
Inside the Accord there's comfortable seating for five and there's an amazing amount of room for passengers, especially for those in the rear seats. In some configurations, the Accord is just about big enough inside to be classed as a full-size sedan rather than a midsize. If you’re torn between an SUV and the Accord it's worth noting that the 40-inches of rear legroom in the Accord is the same as you'll find in the CR-V.
Four cylinders all the way
These days, both engines you'll find under the hood of a new 2020 Honda Accord are four-cylinder units. The standard powerplant is a 1.5-litre turbo-four that develops a very symmetrical 192 horsepower and 192 lb.-ft. of torque, which is sent to the front wheels through either a six-speed manual or a CVT transmission.
If you'd like more power under the hood of your midsize Accord sedan, the two top trim levels feature a 2.0-litre turbo-four which this time gets you an impressive 252 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. The Accord Sport comes with this engine and a six-speed manual transmission, but a 10-speed automatic box is available and it's standard in the top-of-the-range Accord.
The best fuel economy ratings come from models equipped with the 1.5-litre engine and CVT transmission, which are rated at 7.9 L/100km in the city, 6.3 L/100km on the highway and 7.2 L/100km combined. The Accord 2.0-litre models with the 6-speed manual use the most fuel with ratings of 10.7/7.3/9.2 L/100km for city/highway/combined driving, while a 2.0-litre with the automatic transmission is a little better at 10.4/7.4/9.1 L/100km.
Plenty to choose from
Buyers can choose between six impressive versions of the 2020 Honda Accord, which start with the entry-level Accord LX and then go to the Sport, EX-L, Touring, Sport 2.0 and the top-of-the-range Touring 2.0. Only the two Sport models come standard with the six-speed manual transmission, although the 2.0-litre version is available with the automatic if you prefer.
LX, Sport, EX-L and Touring trims come with the 1.5-liter engine, so you'll have to go for a Sport 2.0 or a Touring 2.0 if you want the bigger engine.
There's no such thing as a sparsely equipped 2020 Accord. Even the entry-level LX models come standard with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. LX models also feature Wi-Fi tethering, active noise cancellation, dual-zone automatic climate control, steering wheel-mounted controls, a 12-way power-adjustable driver's seat and heated front seats.
