Visit Honda for more information on the Honda Accord.

This year's version of Honda's popular car is the 17th Accord to be named to Car and Driver's "10 Best" list in the past 21 years. With a record like that, the manufacturer doesn't even need a marketing campaign-the car will practically sell itself.

For 2004, satellite radio is available with Honda's midsize car. Curtain side airbags are also offered in an expanded role. Safe, reliable, durable and refined, there is really nothing wanting with the 2004 Honda Accord.

Available Models
The 2004 Honda Accord is offered in two-coupe and four-door sedan body styles. There are six trims in total: DX, LX, LX V6, EX, EX-L and EX V6.

Interior Features
Both sedans and coupes seat five passengers, with comparable cargo volume numbers. The diversity of models available lets customers really have a choice in terms of standard features.

The base DX model gets you such things as an AM/FM/CD player, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, cloth upholstery, a center console, a folding rear seat and power windows. Uplevel EX-L models throw in dual-zone automatic climate controls, leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats and the new satellite radio.

One of the optional pieces of equipment for 2004 is a navigations system with voice recognition.

Exterior Features
The look of the 2004 Honda Accord is clean and flowing. It comes in eight distinct colors this year. More refined than flashy, it doesn't mind getting noticed-but it doesn't need to either.

Two engines drive the 2004 Honda Accord. DX, LX and EX models all come with a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine. It can be mated to either 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission, and it produces 160 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 161 lb-ft of torque at 4500 rpm.

Not surprisingly, the 2004 Honda Accord LX V6 and EX V6 models feature a V6 engine. It is a 3.0-liter motor, and it cranks out 240 horsepower at 6250 rpm and 212 lb-ft of torque at 5000 rpm. 5-speed automatic is the sole transmission offered with this engine.

The 2004 Honda Accord has double wishbone suspension to give occupants a smooth ride. It glides over bumpy roads and highways and handles dips quite well. Not an off-roader by any stretch of the imagination, it still manages to dampen the effects of weather-battered pavement.

Safety and Security
All models have dual front airbags and antilock brakes. Starting with the LX V6, traction control and front side airbags become standard. EX-L models add curtain side airbags.
