Front view of the 2022 Honda Accord

The Honda Accord, one of America's best-selling sedans, is racing into the 2022 model year with more of what you love, including a new Sport trim for the Accord Hybrid

Since the Accord received a major design refresh last year, the 2022 model won't be boasting significant upgrades. But, it's still worth taking a deeper dive into this year's Accord because it has so much to offer that isn't apparent at first glance. 

Here's what you have to look forward to with the 2022 Honda Accord sedan.

2022 Honda Accord Models

The 2022 Accord lineup features 10 unique models, including a new Hybrid Sport model, which replaces the Hybrid EX. Main highlights of the Sport model include a black rear spoiler, 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps and fog lights, heated front seats, and sport pedals. 

Honda Accord full 2022 lineup: 

  • Accord LX
  • Accord Sport
  • Accord Sport SE
  • Accord EX-L
  • Accord Sport 2.0L
  •  Accord Touring 2.0L
  • Accord Hybrid
  • Accord Hybrid Sport (new for 2022)
  • Accord Hybrid EX-L
  • Accord Hybrid Touring

The Accord Hybrid models are a popular choice among customers because not only do you get the same good looks and fun driving dynamics, there's also the added benefit of EV mode. When selected, the hybrid powertrain will automatically use only the electric motor in certain situations, further improving the total driving range of the vehicle. 

Starting MSRP for the 2022 Honda Accord is $25,470, while the fully-equipped Touring model starts at $37,400. 

2022 Honda Accord Exterior

For as long as I can remember, Honda's design team has been putting out some great vehicle designs, and the Accord ranks high on the list for me in terms of best looks. 

Its overall form embodies a modern sophistication that hints at all the technology it's packing inside. Plus, the continuous shoulder line combined with the sweeping roof profile give the Accord a feeling of motion even when it's parked. 

19-inch alloy wheels - which are standard on Sport, Sport SE, Touring, Hybrid Sport and Hybrid Touring models - help emphasize the Accord's athletic stance. At the rear, the fastback-inspired shape means rear passengers get more head room without compromising cargo space. 

And to show off your personal style, eight exterior paint color options are offered for the 2022 model year (selection varies based on model): 

  • Crystal Black Pearl
  • Lunar Silver Metallic
  • Modern Steel Metallic
  • Platinum White Pearl
  • Radiant Red Metallic
  • Sonic Gray Pearl
  • San Marino Red
  • Still Night Pearl

Additional exterior highlights include a chrome exhaust finisher, active shutter grille, gloss-black decklid spoiler, and courtesy lights. Of course, you can always opt for accessory packages like All Season Protection, Black Accent Package, or Bronze Accent Package to further personalize your Accord.

2022 Honda Accord Interior

On the inside, Accord is well-known for its spacious and comfortable cabin, featuring tall-people-friendly headroom and legroom for both front and rear passengers. 

The elegant and uncluttered interior offers available leather-trimmed seats as well as available heated seats for everyone, with ventilated front seats for hot summer days. The driver and front passenger are treated to additional comfort thanks to available 12-way power adjustable seats. And you won't have to worry if someone moves either seat because both feature the ability to save two positions to memory. 

In terms of connectivity and infotainment, the Accord has you covered on all bases. At the center of the dash is a luxurious 8-inch touchscreen that supports wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto, giving you easy access to the communication, navigation and music/podcast essentials on your smartphone. This system can also be equipped with Wi-Fi hotspot capability, allowing your passengers to work or play on their laptops and tablets. 

The Accord can be equipped with up to 10 audio speakers, and features standard active noise cancellation to deliver distraction-free music listening, or simply a peaceful ride. 

Additional interior highlights include an available wireless phone charger, available head-up display, optional one-touch power moonroof, and standard 60/40 split folding rear seatback.

2022 Honda Accord Performance

The 2022 Accord gets its agile and fun driving dynamics from one of three available powertrains: 

  • 1.5-liter VTEC Turbocharged Engine: 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0-liter VTEC Turbocharged Engine: 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque
  • Two-Motor Hybrid System: 212 total horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque

All three of these systems offer a peppy and responsive on-road experience that fans have come to expect from any Honda vehicle. And the Accord gives you the opportunity to be part of the action with available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for both the continuously variable transmission and 10-speed automatic transmission. 

The standard adaptive damper system also helps deliver a sportier nature by actively controlling the suspension movement - you'll get a comfortable and confident ride that's refined but not too soft. 

Fuel economy for the 2022 Honda Accord is an EPA-estimated 30 mpg city / 38 mpg highway, and the Accord Hybrid ups the estimate to 48 mpg city / 47 mpg highway.

  • Honda Sensing Suite includes:
  • Adaptive Cruise Control w/ Low-Speed Follow

In addition to Honda Sensing, each Accord also has numerous standard safety systems in place.

Select Accord models will offer a blind spot information system with cross traffic monitor, while the Touring model features exclusive low-speed braking control which automatically applies the brakes when a frontal or rear collision is unavoidable.
