Performance & Drive:
The 1.5 liters of a small-displacement engine is-expected to work a little harder, but it is both powerful and fuel-efficient. Mostly the midsize cars are not sporty, and so is the Accord. It does not give you a sporty-ride and may feel-agile around turns, but it does not affect the-overall-performance of the car. The firm suspension system of the Accord gives a comfortable ride, especially on highways. The city driving experience of the Honda Accord may not be impressive a lot compared to many of its competitors because the rough pavements and bumpers can make the drive a little harsher. Honda Accord gives you front-wheel driving performance, and the engine delivers enough power to run the front wheels efficiently. The all-wheel-drive feature is not available yet in Honda Accord models. The acceleration of the Accord is good, and it does not feel short on power. The continuously varying automatic transmission is responsive, delivering you a smooth drive with its balanced throttle changes. Handling-techniques of the 10th generation Accord is playful, making drive fun, and its steering wheel is light that allows easy control of the vehicle. The vehicle does not lean much when turning it around the corners, and the braking system of Accord is also-improved. It has electric parking brakes with an auto-hold feature that let the drivers have full confidence when parking the cars. Two Driving modes options are present that can be selected/utilized according to the requirement. These driving modes include ECON with ECO assist and Sports mode.
Econ mode reduces the amount of fuel you’ll consume while accelerating without affecting your low-end and high-end throttle responses, and you’ll only notice the difference on the highway, and that makes Econ mode ideal for city driving. Sports Mode is for maximum performance during the drive, and when activates, there will be an increase in throttle responses that could be felt clearly both in the city and on the highway.
