If you have been shopping for a mid-size sedan that is powerful, fuel-efficient, and can protect your precious cargo, then you must see the Honda Accord. Honda's popular Accord consistently ranks as one of the best-selling cars in America, and the latest version improves on everything that Accord owners love about this mid-size sedan. Vatland Honda proudly serves residents near Ft. Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Sebastian, and Palm Bay & Fellsmere as one of the area's go-to Honda dealerships. We invite nearby drivers to visit our Vero Beach, FL showroom to test drive the stylish new Honda Accord. You can shop our substantial inventory of Accords and other Honda vehicles right here on our website; then, stop by our dealership location to speak with one of our helpful sales team members.

The Vatland Honda website is useful for more than shopping our current inventory; you can also research Honda's models, like the new Accord, and even compare them to the competition. Let's see how the 2016 Honda Accord stacks up against one of its classic rivals, the Subaru Legacy.

Standard Fuel Economy

Honda vehicles have a well-deserved reputation for being highly fuel-efficient, and the Accord is no different. Its standard 2.4-liter inline-4 engine sips fuel with the best of them in the mid-size sedan class, achieving up to an EPA-estimated 27 city and 37 highway mpg rating -- with 31 mpg combined. Believe it or not, that puts the Honda Accord mid-size sedan inline with some smaller, compact cars when it comes to fuel economy! Subaru's Legacy sedan is a bit off the mark set by the Accord; the 2016 Legacy returns up to an EPA-estimated 26 city/36 highway (and 30 mpg combined) with its standard 2.5-liter engine. The 2016 Accord's more powerful available engine, the 3.5-liter V6 i-VTEC, is also incredibly fuel-efficient, while providing robust power for any driving situation. No matter which Accord powertrain you choose, you will be filling up at the gas pump less frequently than many of its mid-size sedan competitors!

Standard Horsepower and Torque

The 2016 Accord's standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine not only sips fuel, but it is also plenty capable of transporting you and your family or friends around town or cross-country. Developing a highly capable 185 horses and 181 lb-ft of torque, the Accord's 2.4-liter engine delivers its power to the front wheels via your choice of either a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a 6-speed manual gearbox. In comparison, the Subaru Legacy's 2.5-liter boxer engine produces ten less horsepower than the Accord's standard engine, and is only available with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Given that the 2016 Accord weighs over 200 pounds less than the Legacy, you will certainly feel the extra ten horsepower; in fact, it will feel like much more than a ten horsepower advantage out on the road! If you would like even more power when you step on the throttle, then be sure to test drive a Accord equipped with a V6 engine. The available 3.5-liter V6 i-VTEC engine provides a commanding 278 horses, or nearly 100 hp more than the already very capable standard Accord!

Passenger Space and Comfort

If the comfort of your passengers is on your mind when shopping for a mid-size sedan, then be sure to choose one with plenty of space for all five passengers, like the 2016 Accord. Featuring more front shoulder room and hip room, as well as more second-row headroom and legroom than the Legacy, the 2016 Accord will provide comfort for all five of your passengers. It is clear that if you value space for all of your passengers, then the 2016 Honda Accord sedan is the way to go!

Cargo Capacity

Mid-size sedans have grown quite drastically over the years; for instance, the latest Accord is larger inside and out than previous generations. One area where the Accord has certainly grown is in its trunk space. The 2016 Accord offers one of the larger cargo capacities in the mid-size sedan class, with 15.8 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats. The available 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback expands the Accord's cargo space into the second-row of the cabin when the rear seats are not occupied, making the Accord even more versatile as a cargo-hauling vehicle! The 2016 Legacy gives up nearly one cubic foot in cargo space to the Accord, which is quite a difference -- especially when you are trying to cram all of your family's cargo in the trunk for a long weekend. If you want versatility in your next mid-size sedan, then choose the 2016 Honda Accord!

Standard Interior Features

If you are looking to get into a new mid-size sedan that is well-equipped even in base trim, then be sure to test drive a 2016 Honda Accord LX. Standard on the 2016 Accord you will find direct injection, automatic dual-zone climate control, and an anti-theft stereo, none of which are provided as standard on Subaru's 2016 Legacy. Stylish and durable alloy wheels also come standard on the 2016 Accord, but are optional on the Legacy. As you can see, Honda offers a more complete and well-rounded list of standard features on the Accord than what comes with the base Subaru Legacy.

Safety Features

If you are in the market for a mid-size sedan, the chances are that you will be transporting family, friends, or other loved ones around on a regular basis. Well, you will be happy to know that the 2016 Honda Accord is offered with a whole host of innovative safety amenities, including driver-assistance, active safety, and passive safety features. In addition to its full coverage of standard front, side, and side curtain airbags, the Accord is packed with available safety features like Honda Sensing™, Honda's suite of safety and driver assistive technologies. While Subaru's Legacy is also available with driver assist technologies, you often have to upgrade to one of the more expensive models to get the similar features. Honda allows shoppers to add these important safety features onto nearly any Accord model, making the Accord a smart choice for drivers or families who want to prioritize safety over spending thousands more for additional technology and convenience features that they may not use. The 2016 Accord's Multi-Angle Rearview Camera provides drivers with a better view of what is behind, thanks to its three different angles: normal, top-down, and wide. Additional safety features that are available on 2016 Accord models include:

  • Lane departure warning system
  • Lane keeping assist system
  • Lane sway warning system
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Radar- or camera-based collision preparation system
  • Automatic braking, high-speed or partial
  • Forward collision warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow (ACC)
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines

Safety Ratings

Both the 2016 Accord and Legacy mid-size sedans offer a nice list of standard safety features, and both achieved top scores in crash tests performed by the NHTSA. The NHTSA has awarded the 2016 Honda Accord with the highest, 5-Star Overall Crash Test Rating -- meaning that the Accord's safety can't be topped by any other sedan on the market! The Legacy, to its credit, also received a perfect score. So while the safety ratings of the two may be a wash, keep in mind that the Accord can be had with a more extensive list of advanced safety technologies, such as Honda Sensing™.
