2010 Honda Accord review and price

2010 Honda Accord

The 2010 Honda Accord Affordable Midsize Cars. The Honda Accord has been one of Car and Driver's 10 Best for 23 straight years. After its 2008 redesign, the Honda Accord was named Motor Week's Best Family Sedan. Reviewers praise the 2010 Honda Accord for its roomy interior (so large that the government classifies the Accord as a large car, though most reviewers treat it as a midsize), strong reliability history and high resale value. The Accord is an outstanding choice for many buyers. But the class of affordable midsize cars is changing.

Last redesigned in 2008, the Honda Accord enters 2010 with few significant changes. You’ll need to step up to a more expensive 2010 Honda Accord trim level to get
Among popularly priced midsize cars, the Honda Accord is an unbeatable brew of smart engineering, efficient packaging, and rewarding road manners. Available as a four-door sedan and a two-door coupe, Accord is one of America’s most-popular cars, and we judge the EX sedan with the four-cylinder engine as the top all-around value in the Accord lineup.

Should you buy a 2010 Honda Accord or wait for the 2011 Honda Accord?
The only 2010 Honda Accord styling changes are newly available dress-up items designed by renowned Honda racing-accessory purveyor MUGEN. Available for the Accord sedan, they lend a sporty look to a design introduced for model-year 2008. In both wheelbase and overall body length, Accord is among the largest cars in the midsize class. Sedans come in four basic models labeled LX, LX-P, EX, and EX-L.

Coupes come in three models: LX-S, EX, and EX-L. Visual differentiation is subtle: models with the V-6 engine have dual exhaust outlets, and the LX sedan rides on 16-inch wheels with wheel covers while all other Accord sedans have alloy wheels in 16- or 17-inch diameter. Coupes have 17- or 18-inch alloys. Like every other midsize car, Accord has front-wheel drive, which puts the weight of the engine over the wheels that propel the car. LX and LX-P sedans have a 177-horsepower four-cylinder. The LX-S Coupe and all four-cylinder EX and EX-L models have a more advanced engine with 190 horsepower. EX and EX-L models are available with a 271-horsepower V-6. Four-cylinder Accords use a five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automatic. Also for 2010, EX sedans and EX-L sedans and coupes gain new rear-seat ventilation ducts for better rear-passenger airflow. In Honda tradition, Accord offers no options packages, instead increasing the level of equipment as you ascend the model line. EX-L models are the only Accords eligible for a navigation system.

The 2010 Honda Accord prices are slightly higher than base prices for most rivals. This reflects Honda’s practice of equipping Accords with standard features for which many others charge extra. The 2010 Honda Accord LX sedan is priced at $21,765 with manual transmission and $22,525 with automatic. The 2010 Honda Accord LX-P sedan is priced at $22,765, or $23,525 with automatic transmission.

The "2010 Honda Accord" EX sedan with the four-cylinder engine is priced at $24,540, or $25,340 with automatic transmission. The 2010 Honda Accord EX sedan with the V-6 engine is priced at $27,515.

The "2010 Honda Accord EX-L sedan price is $26,740 ($27,540 with automatic) and $29,815 with the V-6. The 2010 Honda Accord Coupe prices range from $23,265-$29,590 for four-cylinder models and from $30,015-$32,015 for V-6 versions".
Honda’s engineers will argue that Accord’s five-speed automatic transmissions suit it perfectly. Dashboard and controls: Accord’s dashboard also reflects the engineer’s eye. The 2010 feature changes are welcome but leave Accord vulnerable to aggressive competitors.
