So we got a 2017 Honda Accord (or two)
The Honda Accord got a major frontal facelift for 2016 in America, and it took a year to come here as a 2017 model. Now that they’re here, we took a spin in both the V6 and I4 versions to see if the changes are more than skin-deep.
The V6 now pretty much looks like an Acura product, with fancy LED headlights and BMW-style tail lamps. The I4 gets basic projectors up front and slightly smaller alloys, but retains the LED fogs and tails, while our tester even had an optional body kit.
Inside, it’s largely unchanged except for an upgraded infotainment system that gets rid of knobs and buttons, for better or worse. Space remains immense.
We still believe the Honda Accord is one of the best offerings in its segment right now, although they still drive largely the same as the pre-facelift models. More on that in the full review.
