Top end models can push over $37,000 but even the 1.5 liter, continuously variable transmission (CVT) LX, the Accord is built to please. High-tech entertainment features, reliability, longevity and a reasonable combined fuel efficiency of 33 MPG are reasons the Honda Accord is one of the top auto models.
