A standard eight-inch LCD display mounted up high performs backup camera duty (the camera is standard), and also provides entertainment details -- sadly in the smallest font known to man
The Accord still feels like one of the biggest cars in the segment, with two roomy and extra-comfortable front buckets and a back bench you and two friends can stretch out on.

Even with full-grown adults up front, there's ample room in the rear for jolly-green passengers.
...buttons in the center stack are replaced with another LCD touchscreen, ostensibly in the name of reducing clutter. What it does, in fact, is occasionally display the same information in a different format and confuse the driver with illogical menus.
Even though the 2014 Honda Accord is just a bit shorter than the last-generation model of a couple years ago, its interior is packaged better than ever. You'll find excellent back-seat space, a roomy trunk, and some of the best cabin refinement in any sedan this size--better, even, than some with a luxury badge.
Thanks to a rather low beltline, there's plenty of window glass all around, and that lends a sense of airiness and spaciousness. with thinner-than typical front and rear pillars—should not only keep your rear passengers from needing Dramamine but also helps you stay safe with a better view outward.
Additionally, the driving position is nice and upright, and you won't need to sacrifice some front-seat legroom if you want to fit adults in the back seat. Trunk space is not only larger (15.8 cubic feet) but the cargo floor is now flat.
One thing that we (and some shoppers, we're sure) would like to see in the Accord is a split-folding back seat. All Accord Sedans include a rather inconvenient single-folding seat arrangement.
The Accord is one of the quietest mid-size sedans inside, and all Accord models include both Active Noise Control and Active Sound Control, which help cancel out road noise especially. Just beware that models with the larger 18-inch wheels--and V-6 models in general--tend to have a bit less composure on bumpy roads than base models.
Butdget-minded mid-size shoppers are going to find everything they'd expect to find inside the 2014 Honda Accord—including lots of passenger space and a more 'premium' feel than some other mid-sizers.
