2006 Honda Accord Sedan Review

The Car Connection Expert Review

(2005 model shown)

Honda's first six-cylinder vehicle to incorporate its hybrid Integrated Motor Assist system, a gas/electric-powered Accord Hybrid sedan was introduced this past spring, and it actually out-performs the standard V-6-powered sedan, but with fuel economy that bests the four-cylinder gasoline model. The Accord Hybrid uses its gasoline engine as the dominant propulsion source, with the electric motor providing additional power as conditions warrant. Changes to the 2006 Hybrid include a newly standard Vehicle Stability Assist system, power moonroof, and temporary-use spare tire; exterior revisions include a restyled rear spoiler, front chin spoiler, taillamps, and heated side mirrors.

The conventional coupe and sedan continue to come powered by a choice of 166-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder and 244-hp 3.0-liter V-6 engines. A five-speed-automatic transmission is standard on V-6 Accords, while the EX V-6 coupe may be fitted with a six-speed-manual gearbox.

Exterior updates for 2006 include fresh front- and rear-bumper, grille, and decklid designs, restyled alloy wheels, and new exhaust finishers. Inside, there's a new steering wheel design, updated seat fabrics, a new shift knob on automatic transmission models, and a restyled instrument panel with satin chrome vent accents. The V-6 models get suspension tweaks and newly standard Vehicle Stability Assist, while the LX V-6 adds a power moonroof and heated side mirrors.

The numbers don't add up - but it's still a smart buy.

You really can't go wrong with a Honda, but I do recommend sticking with the 4 cylinder engine, it is a chain driven engine versus the 6 cylinder which is belt driven. If you forget to change the belt as... + More »
