Transmission

One of the keys to a smooth Riverton drive is a dependable transmission that knows when to shift. With the 2016 Honda Accord, you get three great options:

  • 6-Speed Manual Transmission: If you prefer to have full control over your handling and gear shifting, opt for the Accord models with 6-Speed Manual Transmission.
  • Continuously Variable Transmission: The CVT transmission gives you high fuel efficiency and smoother acceleration, while maintaining your perfect performance. Paddle shifters are available to give you a sportier feel.
  • 6-Speed Automatic Transmission: For a small boost to your fuel economy, try the 6-Speed Automatic Transmission, especially if you prefer to let your car do the shift work for you.
