Offering 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, this engine delivers 4-percent more horsepower and 12-percent more torque compared to its predecessor, while operating on regular unleaded fuel and meeting the strict PZEV and ULEV-2 emissions standards. With its high-flow exhaust system, the Accord Sport Sedan 4-cylinder engine generates 189 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque.
