What does it mean for a sedan to have a low ownership cost? In the case of Kelley Blue Book, it means their experts have examined the five-year cost to own the Accord and it beat out every other vehicle in its class. The five-year cost to own takes into account value depreciation, financing and insurance costs, fuel expenditures, maintenance and repair, and even includes state fees for new models. And when looked at as a whole, the Honda's sedan comes out ahead.
For drivers familiar with the Accord, this may not come as much of a surprise. Always a powerful contender in its class, the 2013 model had game-changing standard features that launched it ahead of competition, taking home plenty of awards, and it looks as though it will continue to stay in the lead while other automakers play catch-up.
The 2014 Honda Accord has been available for a little while now, and drivers are not without their share of choices. In addition to the trim levels available, there is also an optional V6 engine upgrade. The standard engine is rated at 185 hp, but upgrading to the V6 unlocks 278 hp.
And drivers of even the entry-level Accord LX get access to that incredible standard features package that includes: Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, Honda's i-MID infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera system, and steering wheel-mounted audio and technology controls
