The Accord offers two four-cylinder engines: a base 1.5-liter and a new 192-hp engine that’s mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Also available is an uplevel turbocharged 2.0-liter and a hybrid version.

Honda Accord runs neck-and-neck with Toyota Camry for the title of best-selling car every year because they are both known to last. The Accord also ranks as one of the most common cars kept for longer than a decade. For the best value, go with a four-cylinder engine.
