The 2009 Honda Accord grows even larger with this latest generation introduced last year, and reviewers have mostly positive remarks about the space and interior appointments.
Edmunds reports "ample supply of front and rear passenger room" inside the Honda Accord Sedan. Kelley Blue Book says there is "an interior volume increase big enough to move the Accord into the EPA's Large Sedan category, [providing] room for wider seats and a big, two-arm center console." ConsumerGuide asserts that "seats have grown for 2009 and are more comfortable as a result...sedans have good headroom, vast legroom, and comfortable seats...[while] larger door openings and a higher roof contribute to easy entry and exit." MotherProof, on the other hand, gripes that the "seats are a bit hard."
Kelley Blue Book assures buyers "there are plenty of bins and cubbies throughout and the backseat and trunk qualify as roomy in every dimension." ConsumerGuide describes the trunk as "large, deep [and] usefully shaped," while noting "a smallish opening may prevent loading of bulkier items" and "intrusive hinges force cautious loading of crushable items." MotherProof reports that "the rear seats do fold down, through a lever found in the trunk," providing "14 cubic feet of trunk space, which is at least a cube less than its major competitors," states Edmunds.
Interior materials are upscale in nature. According to Cars.com, the "new [2009 Honda] Accord's cabin treads ever-closer to the domain of Honda's luxury brand, Acura, with its use of high-quality materials, good fit and finish." MotherProof says the 2009 Honda Accord Sedan's available "leather interior has a sophisticated, tailored look and feel."
ConsumerGuide reports that in the Honda Accord "road noise is fairly pronounced, with less sound isolation from traffic din than might be expected." Edmunds, however, thinks it's "quieter thanks to additional sound-deadening materials and body-stiffening measures."
