Let There Be Lights From the get-go, it’s pretty obvious that the Accord got a nip and tuck up front.

In the back, you’re also getting a new set of lights, which keep the refresh subtle and handsome. Hot Wheels Gone are the bland, old wheels, and in their place comes a whole new stable of designs.

Efficiency and Power Like the previous generation of Accord, for 2016, the new sedan gets your choice of either a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine or a 3.5-liter V6. Unlike the old Accord though, Honda ditched the standard automatic transmission on the 4-cylinder engine in place of a CVT. But don’t worry, you can still opt for a six-speed manual or a standard six-speed automatic on the V6 version if you so choose. RELATED: If Honda Builds A New S2000 Let's Hope It Looks This Good
