No matter what your used car budget is, there’s a Honda Accord out there that’ll serve your family quite well for years to go.
If you happen to have a price ceiling of $20,000, finding a ninth-generation Accord that’s in good shape and low mileage isn’t too challenging.
Sold between the 2013-2017 model years, these Accords sport a reasonable amount of style and plenty of space in the cabin and trunk for cargo.
For the LX, EX and EX-L trim levels, a 2.4-liter I4 making 185 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque was standard.
The I4 engine was available connected to either a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission.
Those looking for more power can get a V6 engine with 278 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque in EX-L and Touring versions.
In EX above versions of the Accord, the Display Audio infotainment system featured a 7-inch touchscreen that was capable of running both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Available driver assist technologies include adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist and Honda’s slick LaneWatch system.
Anyone looking for a more entertaining experience behind the wheel, an Accord Sport was offered with a tighter suspension for improved handling.
The trunks in the ninth-generation Accords are roomy, offering 15.8 cubic feet of cargo carrying capacity.
