Straddling the traditional midsize and large sedan segments in size but not price, the 2022 Honda Accord sedan can hold five people and up to 16.7 cu.-ft. of cargo in its trunk. You can choose between two turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engines and a gas-electric hybrid powertrain. Every Accord has front-wheel drive.

Separately, the 2022 Accord Hybrid comes in four levels of specification:
- Accord Hybrid — Honda equips the least expensive Accord Hybrid like the Accord LX, but it has a more powerful and efficient gas-electric hybrid powertrain and aerodynamic 17-inch alloy wheels.

What’s New for the 2022 Honda Accord?
The Honda Accord enters its fifth year of production since a complete redesign for the 2018 model year. After a freshening for 2021, the 2022 Accord sees few changes. The most notable one is a new Hybrid Sport trim level that gives buyers who like the standard Sport model’s 19-inch wheels and competitive price a more fuel-efficient alternative.
Honda Accord Competitors for 2022
Because many consumers increasingly choose crossover SUVs as their favored mode of transportation, the midsize sedan segment is shrinking. The Accord, however, remains a popular choice for people who still want a traditional four-door family car. Primary rivals include the Hyundai Sonata, Kia K5, Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry. The Accord also competes against the Chevrolet Malibu, Subaru Legacy, and Volkswagen Passat.
