2017 Honda Accord Values & Cars for Sale | Kelley Blue Book (2023)

Whether you’re looking for the Labrador retriever of family-friendly midsize sedans, a stylish and powerful coupe, or a refined hybrid that kisses 50 mpg, the 2017 Honda Accord delivers like few others. Long loved for its faithful reliability, great resale value and inherent ability to please a wide palette of buyers, the 2017 Accord remains a highly recommendable car even as rivals clamor for its benchmark status. The Accord just marked its 40th anniversary, and it shows no sign of resting on its laurels. The standard model was upgraded last year with features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and automatic emergency braking, and this year marks the reintroduction of a hybrid model. We continue to like almost everything about the Accord except its optional touch-screen controls.

Used 2017 Honda Accord Pricing

The 2017 Honda Accord has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting just over $23,000 for a base, manual-transmission sedan. Most buyers will opt for an automatic transmission, an extra $800. We think you’ll be even more satisfied in a Sport or Sport Special Edition model, which sits in the mid-$20,000 range, also the point at which Accord Coupe models begin. A top-line Accord Touring model sits above $35,000 in both sedan and coupe form. Finally, the new Accord Hybrid starts just over $30,000 and tops out at nearly $37,000 in Touring form. At these prices, the Hondas are in step with longtime rival the Toyota Camry, as well as the Ford Fusion and Nissan Altima. Do check the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for their Accord, which is expected to hold its value well, just below the Toyota Camry and Subaru Legacy.

Driving the Used 2017 Honda Accord

All Accord models are brisk, compliant and comfortable, with each particular model offering more or less of those traits depending on drivetrain. The bread-and-butter 4-cylinder Accord with an automatic transmission finely balances the comfort/agility equation while offering one of the best continuously variable transmissions (CVT) in the business. V6-powered sedans and coupes are surprisingly quick, and the larger engine boasts deep power reserves. The few buyers who opt for a manual transmission will be rewarded with crisp, easy shifts. The new Accord Hybrid accelerates swiftly, similar to an electric vehicle when it is being powered via electric motor. Transitions between its gasoline and electric powerplants are smooth, but the gasoline engine and electronic continuously variable transmission (e-CVT) drone under hard acceleration. We found the available lane-keep assist system so-so; it can nudge you back into the lane, but doesn’t work 100 percent of the time, especially on twisty 2-lane roads.

Interior Comfort

All 2017 Accord models accommodate five passengers, though the coupe has less legroom than the sedan. Rear-seat passengers in the sedan are also treated to a good view out thanks to large side windows. Up front, higher trims of the Accord have a pair of screens. The top one displays audio info and the rearview camera, while the other below shows navigation and other functions. However, the lower screen is touch-only, lacking traditional knobs for volume and tuning. Lower-trim models don’t have the secondary screen, and instead offer easy-to-use controls. In hybrid Accords the rear seat doesn’t fold due to the battery pack.

Exterior Styling

The 2017 Honda Accord pulls off quite a feat when it comes to style: It looks handsome, contemporary, yet timeless. This is a well-proportioned vehicle whose design will likely hold up well as the years pass. The Accord coupe, too, looks elegant, sporty and more expensive than it is. Among the few traits of which we’re on the fence is the way the grille wraps into the elongated headlights; it can be a little too sweeping. Hybrid Accord models look similar to their gasoline-only counterparts, except for their small hybrid badges and blue accents on the grille, headlights and taillights.

Favorite Features

This safety system has been around a few years and still impresses. Via a camera mounted under the right-side mirror, it displays a real-time view of what’s happening in the next lane when you activate the turn signal, showing whatever may be in your blind spot so you don’t collide.

One of the best things about the reintroduced Accord Hybrid — aside from its nearly 50-mpg rating — is that it looks just like a regular Accord. For buyers who want great fuel economy but don’t want way-out-there looks, the hybrid Accord is an excellent choice.

Standard Features

Including the new Sport Special Edition, the 2017 Accord sedan is available in seven trims. At the lowest end, a base LX includes rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, 4-speaker AM/FM/CD player with Bluetooth connectivity and USB and auxiliary inputs, and an 8-inch color display. We recommend stepping up to at least the Sport or Sport Special Edition, which include 10-way-power-adjustable driver’s seat, LED fog lights and daytime running lights, split-folding rear seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and in the Special Edition, leather interior with heated front seats. The Accord’s standard safety features include antilock brakes and stability- and traction-control systems.

Factory Options

Most extras come by climbing trims, with a notable exception being the HondaSensing suite of features that we heartily recommend. For $1,000, it includes lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, collision-mitigation braking, and road-departure mitigation system. HondaSensing is standard on top-line Touring and all hybrid models of the 2017 Accord. Other extras available depending on trim include the LaneWatch blind-spot monitoring system, navigation, upgraded audio, HomeLink integrated garage opener, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, and the HondaLink smartphone connectivity system.

Engine & Transmission

The Honda Accord sedan and coupe are available with 4- or 6-cylinder engines tied to both manual and automatic transmissions, while the gasoline-electric Accord Hybrid is offered as a sedan only. Gasoline models with the 4-cylinder with an automatic transmission use a CVT that feels natural, while V6 models have a traditional 6-speed automatic. If you want a V6 Accord with a manual transmission, that combination is available in coupe form only. At up to 36 mpg, even a standard Accord is highly efficient. For those seeking the most efficient Honda Accord, the hybrid model earns a 49-mpg EPA rating. The hybrid uses both a 4-cylinder gasoline engine and a pair of electric motors. A lithium-ion battery pack sits in the rear of the car.

KBB Vehicle Review and Rating Methodology

Our Expert Ratings come from hours of both driving and number crunching to make sure that you choose the best car for you. We comprehensively experience and analyze every new SUV, car, truck, or minivan for sale in the U.S. and compare it to its competitors. When all that dust settles, we have our ratings.

We require new ratings every time an all-new vehicle or a new generation of an existing vehicle comes out. Additionally, we reassess those ratings when a new-generation vehicle receives a mid-cycle refresh — basically, sprucing up a car in the middle of its product cycle (typically, around the 2-3 years mark) with a minor facelift, often with updates to features and technology.

Rather than pulling random numbers out of the air or off some meaningless checklist, KBB’s editors rank a vehicle to where it belongs in its class. Before any car earns its KBB rating, it must prove itself to be better (or worse) than the other cars it’s competing against as it tries to get you to spend your money buying or leasing.

Our editors drive and live with a given vehicle. We ask all the right questions about the interior, the exterior, the engine and powertrain, the ride and handling, the features, the comfort, and of course, about the price. Does it serve the purpose for which it was built? (Whether that purpose is commuting efficiently to and from work in the city, keeping your family safe, making you feel like you’ve made it to the top — or that you’re on your way — or making you feel like you’ve finally found just the right partner for your lifestyle.)

We take each vehicle we test through the mundane — parking, lane-changing, backing up, cargo space and loading — as well as the essential — acceleration, braking, handling, interior quiet and comfort, build quality, materials quality, reliability.
