The Honda Accord is a midsize car and has been a prominent part of the automaker’s lineup since it was introduced in 1978. Apart from Japan and the United States, it has been sold under the same nameplate and under different nameplates in several other countries as well. The 1995 Accord has the distinction of being the first car manufactured in the U.S. by a Japanese automaker when production began in Honda’s Ohio plant.
Body Styles: coupe, sedan, station wagon
Engines: 2.2-liter four-cylinder, 2.7-liter V-6
Transmissions: four-speed automatic, five-speed manual
Models: Honda Accord DX, Honda Accord LX, Honda Accord EX, Honda Accord LX V6, Honda Accord EX V6
The 1995 Honda Accord comes with a brand new V-6 engine. However, the mandatory automatic transmission with this engine dampens its impact on the performance. The models with V-6 engines fitted (LX V6, EX V6) are slightly different in appearance from the other models. It has a different front styling because of the increased size of its engine bay. These models come with anti-lock brakes as standard.
The 1995 Honda Accord is based on the CD chassis. It is wider than the previous generation, but its length has also been reduced. In terms of the difference between the V-6 models and other models, the V-6 models have taller front fenders and a different hood. However, the truth is that these differences are difficult to spot when both model types are placed side by side. All three body styles have a wheelbase of 106.9 inches and a width of 70.1 inches. The sedan and coupe have a length of 185.6 inches, while the wagon and V-6 sedan have a length of 188.4 inches.
The 1995 Honda Accord is wider than its predecessor by three inches, and this translates to greater interior space. Legroom is more than adequate up front and at the rear. However, headroom is strictly average. Visibility is good for the driver in all directions because of the thin pillars and low cowl. The trunk is also wider than before, making it easier to load bulky items. If the need arises, all models can be acquired with a foldable rear seat to boost trunk space. Be advised, however, that the seatback does not fold flat.
Performance & Handling
The 1995 Honda Accord offer two versions of the 2.2-liter, four-cylinder engine. The first version is rated at 130 horsepower, while the second one is rated at 145 horsepower. Both engines are available with both automatic and manual transmissions. However, it's most effective when they are combined with the five-speed manual transmission. It loses a lot of its power with the automatic shift. The new 2.7-liter, V-6 engine is the highlight, delivering 170 horsepower. While there is only a slight difference in the power of the four-cylinder engines and the V-6, the latter works better with the automatic and is smoother and quieter. It also offers a nice boost of power during passing situations.
The 1995 Honda Accord receives four stars for driver safety and three stars for passenger safety during frontal impact tests conducted by the NHTSA.
