2016 Honda Accord Touring Offers The Best of Accord Range


Nothing makes the heart of an auto dealership swell with pride like a glowing review from a respected publication like the New York Daily News, which is why we were so glad to see their Jim Travers recently write a review for the 2016 Honda Accord Touring model lauding it for balancing practicality as a family vehicle with the speed, power and agility of a sports sedan. While any Accord model could make consumers plenty happy, this particular trim, currently sitting atop the Accord lineup, is arguably the most desirable iteration of one of our best-selling automobiles. In other words, it’s every bit as good as Travers claims.


The reasons why are manifold, but they of course start with the zippy and entertaining powertrain, a V6 capable of producing an impressive 278 horsepower. It’s an engine that the New York Daily News calls “punchy and refined,” and coupled with an unbelievably smooth steering setup, a tight suspension, 19-inch wheels with special tires, larger brakes and suspension damping, it should be pretty clear—at least on paper—that the Accord Touring is every bit as fun to drive as the article claims it is.

Of course, what separates the Accord from much of its competition is its spacious and affordable interior, which offers some of the most comfortable seats in its segment and also features a ton of great new technology. The dash features faux wood, the seats are leather and heated in both the front and rear of the vehicle and the infotainment system is incredibly easy to use. Quite simply, it’s hard to find something to complain about in regards to this vehicle. The Accord itself is a great car, but the Accord Touring adds performance to practicality in an attempt by Honda to generate arguably the most desirable Accord model yet.
