The base LX includes a 2.4-liter inline-four that makes 184 pull and 180 lb-ft of torque. Its smooth operation is exemplary and expected: this motor is imparted to the Honda Accord, which was named one of our 10Best Cars. The two motors can be had with front-or all-wheel drive. Honda likewise refreshed its all-wheel-drive innovation to be more adaptable and skilled. We found the setup consistent and, other than amid sudden throttle inputs while cornering, for all intents and purposes undetectable.
