Year-to-year changesEdit

1991Edit

The Honda Accord has been neck and neck with the Ford Taurus for "best-selling model in America" for years. In its fourth generation, the Accord was available as a notchback coupe, 4-door sedan or 5-door station wagon. The coupe was available in three trim and equipment levels, base DX, midlevel LX and high-line EX, while the sedan also included a Special Edition. The wagon came only with LX or EX trim. 

1995Edit

The midsize, front-drive Accord competes with the Ford Taurus, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, Mitsubishi Galant, Mazda 626, any number of front-drive GM sedans and the new Cirrus/Stratus from Chrysler and Contour/Mystique from Ford.   It got new bodywork last year and a long-awaited V6 engine option for 1995. Compared to former Accords, the current cars are larger, smoother, quieter and more luxurious. 

The 2.2-liter 4-cylinder engine is available in 130-hp or 145-hp VTEC tune with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. 

The new 24-valve 2.7-liter 170-hp V6 was developed from the old Acura Legend V6 (the current Legend's 3.2-liter V6 is a completely different engine). To accommodate this bigger, more powerful engine, the hood on V6 models is slightly higher and the car about 2 in. longer than 4-cylinders. The V6 is available only on LX and EX sedans, with automatic transmission and 4-wheel-disc ABS standard.

Brakes on the base models are disc/drum, but the all-disc ABS is optional. Unlike many more expensive cars that still use MacPherson strut suspension, the Accord has racing-style independent upper and lower A-arms front and rear. These give more consistent handling and a better ride.
