2022 Honda Accord for Sale in West Springfield, MA
Trims and Powertrain
The front-wheel-drive 2022 Honda Accord comes in five trims: LX, Sport, Sport Special Edition (SE), EX-L, and Touring. The powertrain for all trims but the Touring consists of a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine (192 horsepower and 192 lb.-ft. of torque) with a continuously variable transmission (CVT); the Sport and Sport SE get paddle shifters. For the LX and EX-L, the EPA-estimated fuel economy is 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway; for the Sport and Sport SE that changes to 29 city/35 highway.
Honda’s robust turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 252 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque is standard on the Touring and available on the Sport; it gets a 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The EPA estimates for this powertrain are 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.
The well-appointed LX has fabric seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, LED auto on/off low-beam headlights, LED taillights, push-button ignition, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, a fold-down rear seatback, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Honda Sensing comes standard to add technologies for safer driving (collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane-keeping assist, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and traffic sign recognition. The 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system has smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), Bluetooth, four speakers, and access to the HondaLink smartphone app. There’s a pair of USB ports to keep the occupants charged.
The Sport gets some noteworthy upgrades, some of which – a rear spoiler, sport pedals, and 19-inch alloy wheels – help it earn its name. It also has full LED exterior lighting, a 12-way power driver’s seat with lumbar control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob (base engine versions only), and a 60/40-split folding rear seat. There are even more upgrades that come in conjunction with the available 2.0-liter engine upgrade: remote start, heated front seats, a power moonroof, heated side mirrors, proximity keyless entry, and – in the driver-assist category – a rear-seat reminder and blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert. In the infotainment department, the Sport with either engine adds SMS text messaging and a pair of back-seat USB ports while also moving up to a higher-wattage sound system with eight speakers. The Sport with the 2.0 engine is further enhanced with wireless smartphone integration and SiriusXM satellite radio.
Sport Special Edition (SE)
The SE, as it’s known for short, is equipped like the base-engine Sport, retaining plug-in smartphone integration and other features. But it gets its own series of upgrades: heated side mirrors, an active shutter grille for optimal fuel economy, proximity keyless entry, leather seats (heated in the front row), and a four-way power front passenger seat.
This advanced trim goes back to the 17-inch alloy wheels and receives some goodies seen on the Sport 2.0: remote start, a power moonroof, a driver’s position memory system, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Audiophiles will appreciate that the sound system moves up to a 450-watt, ten-speaker setup with a subwoofer.
The Touring includes all of the equipment from the EX-L, plus an adaptive suspension, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a head-up display, and wireless smartphone integration and charging. Its wheels are stylish 19-inch alloys, and its infotainment system is stacked with navigation and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
