2024 Honda Accord Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

This preview of the 2024 Honda Accord will be updated once final photos, specs, and prices are available.

What kind of vehicle is the 2024 Honda Accord? What does it compare to?

With a potent hybrid option and room for five passengers, the 2024 Honda Accord stands out in a competitive but small class of mid-size sedans such as the Hyundai Sonata, Toyota Camry, and Nissan Altima. 

Is the 2024 Honda Accord a good car?

The Accord was redesigned for 2023, ushering in the bestseller’s 11th generation. It has fewer emissions and a better infotainment interface, but keeps its strong value and engaging handling. For the 2023 model year it earned a TCC Rating of 7.0 out of 10, and we expect more of the same for the new model year. (Read more abouthow we rate cars.)

What’s new for the 2024 Honda Accord?

We expect the Accord to carry over unchanged for 2024 after last year’s full redesign.

It’s wider and longer, more modern and cleaner than Accords of the past, and it follows suit with recent Honda design. That’s most apparent in the front end, with a low focal point and broad grille reminiscent of the Civic. 

The nose incorporates most of the additional length, which sweeps into a fastback roofline for a sporty look; available black-finished 19-inch alloys enhance the effect. The looks aren’t backed up by performance, though. Comfort and efficiency take priority, and Honda distracts from the absence of the discontinued 252-hp turbo-4 by pointing to the revised hybrid powertrain.

A 192-hp 1.5-liter turbocharged-4 powers LX and EX models, driving the front wheels through a CVT. It’s coarse compared to the Accord Hybrid, but is still good for 32 mpg combined.

The hybrid system pairs the revised 2.0-liter inline-4 with two motors for 204 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque. The system is smooth and feels effortless, and its reliance on the electric power helps yield ratings of up to 48 mpg combined, or 44 mpg combined in models with 19-inch wheels. Balanced handling and direct steering yield good driving dynamics for a front-drive sedan.

A new seat frame design for 2023 results in more support for front riders, and there’s plenty of legroom in the second row. Thin pillars offer good outward vision. With 16.7 cubic feet of trunk capacity, the Accord is one of the best in the class, and even better, the Hybrid’s cabin and trunk measurements are the same.

Crash-testing isn’t yet complete though Honda expects the Accord will continue to earn the NHTSA’s five-star rating and the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick+ rating. The standard safety package includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, and active lane control, while features like wide angle cameras and radar detectors enhance detection.

How much does the 2024 Honda Accord cost?

The 2024 Honda Accord LX should cost about $30,000. The 1.5-liter turbo-4 engine likely will come in LX and EX versions, which include features like LED front lighting, 17-inch alloys, cloth seats, a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and two USB-C ports. 

The 2024 Accord Hybrid will also likely be available in Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, and Touring grades, priced from about $33,000 to about $40,000. 

Where is the 2024 Honda Accord made?

Marysville, Ohio, since 1982. Honda is moving production of the Accord to another factory soon, to make room for new battery-powered vehicles.
