The 2015 Honda Accord EX-L is the only trim on the vehicle that can be had with either the standard four-cylinder or available V6 engine, and we want you to know the difference so that you can make the right choice when you visit a Capital Region Honda Dealer near you for a test drive. While it’s hard to actually put into words what separates these engines, we at least have some specs that you can compare.
The Differences Between the Engines
The 2015 Honda Accord has a standard four-cylinder engine that you’ll find on all models, sedan and coupe, up until the EX-L trim level. This standard engine is rated at 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, and 2015 Accord LX Sedan models with a CVT earn an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 36 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city.*
But what if you want a sedan with more power? Well, on the Accord Coupe EX-L V6, Sedan EX-L V6, and Sedan Touring, you’ll find Honda’s 3.5L V6 engine. You only sacrifice a bit of fuel economy—2015 Accord Sedan models with the V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission earn an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 21 city mpg*—and receive a huge power boost in exchange. The V6 engine is rated at 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque!
Now, we can’t choose the right engine for you, but if you’re eyeing the EX-L trim, you can get all of the benefits—leather seating, heated front seats, Honda LaneWatch, and more—on either engine. All you need to do is decide if you want a high-power V6 or a conservative four-cylinder under the hood of your next Accord.
And what better way to figure that out than with a test drive?
