  • Four-cylinder and V-6 engines available
After an extensive redesign last year, the 2014 Honda Accord midsize car returns mostly unchanged for the new model year.

Changes for 2014 are limited to new seat fabric in the LX trim and an updated auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The flexible Accord is offered as both a sedan and a sporty coupe, and this latest edition also comes as a Hybrid or Plug-in Hybrid (both covered separately) for those who want a side-helping of electric power. From the outside, the Accord’s handsome styling is a bit more conservative than competitors like the Ford Fusion and Mazda Mazda6 but it will appeal to many buyers in this segment that aren’t looking for something head turning. 16-inch wheels are standard, with 17- or 18-inch alloys optional. Higher trim levels get full-LED headlights, a feature not usually found in this segment.

Under the hood the 2014 Accord offers plenty of powertrain configuration options. The base engine is a 185-hp (189-hp in the Sport Sedan), 2.4-liter four-cylinder that is mated to a six-speed manual or a CVT. Those looking for a boost in performance can opt for a powerful, 278-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 that is mated to a six-speed automatic in the sedan, while the coupe also includes the option of a six-speed manual. The Accord’s fuel economy is very class competitive, topping out at 27/36 mpg city/highway in four-cylinder models with the CVT.

The interior reaped the largest benefits of the redesign, getting a serious upgrade in materials and fit-and-finish. There is also tremendous value in the Accord, which features an impressive standard features list that ensures you get a lot of car for your dollars. Dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, USB/iPod port, and a stereo with an 8-inch color touchscreen and Pandora internet radio compatibility are all standard. Leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a navigation system are also available. Both the coupe and sedan seat five.

Another big selling point on this latest Accord is its crash test ratings; it earned a full five-star overall rating from the NHTSA and a prestigious Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS for acing the new small overlap frontal crash test. The Accord also features some of the latest safety technology, including an optional LaneWatch system. LaneWatch is activated when the right turn signal is engaged, and shows the view from a camera located on the side mirror eliminating blind spots on the passenger side where other vehicles can lurk.

The 2014 Honda Accord is a formidable contender in what is perhaps the most competitive automotive segment there is. It's impeccable safety ratings, great value and reliability, and increased fuel economy make it a great choice for those in the midsize market.

Secret 1
Consumer Incentives

 

Zero percent financing, employee discount, cash back, out-the-door price tags...

Most dealers work hard to offer the public competitive prices. These incentives can grab your attention, but they can also obscure the actual terms you're getting on your purchase.

How can you fully understand incentives to get the lowest possible price on your car?

Finance & Insurance

 

Most state franchise laws prohibit manufacturers from selling cars directly to the public, so the dealer will be your middleman. But in terms of financing and insurance, you can choose a bank or the dealer directly.

How can you determine what's in your best interest?

Dealer Holdback

 

The car manufacturer holds back a fraction of the price of all vehicles the dealership sells. Then, it returns the money to the dealership, usually on a quarterly basis.

Dealer holdback began its life as a safety net that ensured the manufacturers would have a security deposit of sorts if a dealership missed payments, and the dealerships would have money on hand to cover overhead costs when the holdback was returned.

How can you take advantage of dealer holdbacks to get the bottom line price?

Dealer Incentives

 

Unlike consumer incentives, dealer incentives are factory-to-dealer incentives that reduce the dealer's true cost to buy the vehicle from the factory to below invoice.

Manufacturers offer these incentives on a regional basis to generate sales on specific models. These incentives are sometimes referred to as "spiffs," and they can touch off competition among dealers to move slower-selling stock.

For instance, a dealer incentive may kick in when a certain sales target is reached, with each subsequent sale resulting in a higher factory-to-dealer rebate. How can you benefit from that?

Additional Costs

 

Destination charges, taxes, license and title fees, advertising fees... When going to a dealership, you must ask for an explanation of any fee you don't understand. But you need to choose your battles wisely. Your local car dealer may have taken a loss or slim profit along the way, and your fighting over something like a doc fee when the deal is nearly wrapped up may be counterproductive.

In any case, there are many fees and charges in the sale process: some inevitable, others questionable. How do you tell them apart?

Trade-in Value

 

If you currently own a car, it probably represents profit. The question is, whose profit will it be?

With few exceptions, you'll get the most money for your used car by selling it privately. That's because dealers pay wholesale prices — not retail prices — for used cars, and they sell them at retail.

Your current car's value can be used to lower the price on your new car. However, most people underestimate their used car's value when going to a dealership. How can you maximize your value?
