177-hp, 2.4-Liter, 16-Valve, DOHC i-VTEC® 4-Cylinder Engine (LX, LX-P, SE)
The DOHC i-VTEC® system enhances the effect of VTEC® on Accord's 4-cylinder engines by adding Variable Timing Control™, or VTC™. Accord EX and EX-L models feature a higher-revving, more powerful 190-hp 4-cylinder engine.
190-hp, 2.4-Liter, 16-Valve, DOHC i-VTEC® 4-Cylinder Engine (EX, EX-L)
Accord EX and EX-L models feature a higher-revving, more powerful 190-hp 4-cylinder engine.
271-hp, 3.5-Liter, 24-Valve, SOHC i-VTEC® V-6 Engine
The Accord V-6’s single overhead camshaft i-VTEC® system is designed to deliver outstanding performance at any engine speed. And with Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®), you get the best of both worlds: fuel efficiency[1] and thrilling acceleration.

Double Wishbone Front Suspension
The double wishbone front suspension uses both lower and upper control links. This allows Honda engineers the flexibility to tune the suspension for predictable cornering feel and emergency maneuvering, to ensure a smooth and stable ride.
Drive-by-Wire Throttle System
The Drive-by-Wire throttle system helps enhance the driving character of the Accord Sedan. With smart electronics connecting the throttle pedal to the throttle butterfly valve in the intake manifold, the engine response can be optimized to suit the driving conditions and to better match the driver's expectations.
Grade Logic Control
The Accord automatic transmission features Honda's Grade Logic Control system. This system differs from other computer-controlled shift programming because it can detect vehicle driving situations and then set appropriate shift points for the car. This feature avoids gear hunting on climbs and descents, and downshifts when appropriate for added engine braking.
Independent Multi-Link Rear Suspension
The independent multi-link rear suspension provides high lateral rigidity for more spirited handling.
Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®)
The Accord Sedan's V-6 features Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) technology. This system can activate and deactivate the engine's cylinders as needed to meet the demands of both acceleration and fuel savings. When maximum torque is required, all six cylinders are firing. During steady cruising speeds, VCM shuts down one bank of cylinders. In this mode, the audio system's Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC) function generates out-of-phase sound waves to cancel out any undesirable noise that may be due to the harmonics of 3-cylinder operation. As cruising speed increases the engine moves to a 4-cylinder mode for extra cruising power. To help keep engine vibration from reaching the cabin in every mode, active engine mounts automatically adjust their firmness to help absorb energy. The transition between the three operating modes is nearly seamless and goes unnoticed by the Accord's passengers.
