2007 Honda Accord Ex V6 6-speed Detailed

By: Ally Wahlberg

For this year model, there are no much changes; but still the 2007 Honda Accord EX V6 6-Speed is worth your time and money.

The 2007 model has reduced weight, especially at the rear where the full-width taillight decorate the '03-'05 models. A center stop light mounted in the rear window gives way to separate LED taillights mounted at the rear edge of the trunk. Minor revisions are also in the grille and front bumper. One difference of the 6-Speed from other V6 models is its 17-inch alloy wheels.

The EX trim is given an upscale specification by Accord's interior design, leather upholstery, and navigation system. Ambience is further improved by the 6-Speed's good soundproofing. The "carbon fiber-look" trim around the window of all 6-Speeds lifts on the doors and on the instrument panel and console give it a fitted sporty look.

Interior details include interior door panels scooped to further improve elbow room. Easy to see in all lights are the bright, back-lit instruments. For perfect driving position, heated, power-adjustable seats and a steering wheel manually-adjustable for both tilt and reach are available. Additional light is provided by a tilt-and-slide glass sunroof. Storage pockets with bottle holders are on all doors. The navigation system controls audio and the climate system through the touch screen at the top of the center stack. The interface is simple and has voice control. Aside from a huge trunk, the rear seat also has plenty of room.

Many useful interior storage spaces are found inside the car. A dual-layer console box/armrest with a power point in the lower section and a cord pass-through to the top for phone charging and a very useful storage box at the bottom of the center stack are just few of the examples.

All Honda Accords have safety features like dual-stage front airbags, front side airbags with a passenger-side occupant detection system, side curtain airbags, daytime running lights, and antilock brakes, which, in V6 models, are four-wheel discs. Vehicle Stability Assist is standard on all V6 models. The Accord receives a five-star frontal impact rating from the U.S. Government and a ``Best Pick'' rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Excellent ride and handling is provided by 17-inch alloy wheels and low-profile, 50-series tires last year. V6 Accords got firmer so smooth sailing ride is provided by the vehicle. Changes were not massive, but they result in improved steering response, from the shorter tire sidewalls, and an added improvement in suspension control. Comfort is assured with a more European suspension tuning.

Honda's VTEC variable valve timing system gives the Accord V6 good low- and mid-range power. But the engine still likes to rev from the 5000-rpm torque peak, where 211 lb-ft are produced. Peak horsepower (244) is at 6250 rpm. Shift action is quick and smooth, thus adds enjoyment. Unlike many expensive sports sedans, the Accord V6 uses regular unleaded gasoline, not premium. EPA fuel economy is 21mpg in city and 30 along the highway.
