The Honda Accord base spec of a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbo engine provides adequate power of 198 bhp with a Continuously Variable Automatic Transmission (CVT) engine. However, you have the options of an upper trim level as well, which is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that provides an output of 247 bhp with a 10-Speed Automatic Transmission.
The base 1.5-liter provides a slow and steady acceleration, although it’s a turbo. On the highway, it takes a while for the vehicle to pick speed up. But in return, it provides an excellent fuel efficiency of 18.4 (Km/L) as compared to 2.0 liter with 14.3 (Km/L). Honda has come a long way with technology that is continuously improving its fuel efficiency and does a great job at it.
The optional 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder trim is slightly more powerful and is felt while accelerating on the highways. The acceleration is quick and operates with a 10-speed automatic. In my opinion, I would pick the 1.5-liter engine since it is fuel-efficient.
