Drivers here in coastal Maine have a lot of ground to cover. That's especially true in the Augusta ME area. We all need the power to do it, true enough, but fuel economy to go the distance is paramount. That makes buying a used Honda Accord a great idea. How does it stand apart from other used cars, trucks, and SUVs?

For one, it's a proven performer on the streets of Waterville ME. Later models feature a turbocharged 192-horsepower, 1.5-liter engine at base, ready to churn out 192 pound-feet of torque. That's bested only by a sportier 252-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbo that produces 273 pound-feet. Of course, the car's capabilities reach their apex in models like Honda Accord Hybrid, offering a spirited 212-net-horsepower hybrid system that's great with gas on longer drives to Lewiston ME. Handling's also a breeze thanks to an available 10-speed auto with shift-by-wire and paddle shifters, which enables you to change hears at ten and two with the touch of a button. Of course, there's also an equally smooth-operating e-CVT for hybrid variants that uses deceleration selectors to recoup brake power for use by its electrical system simultaneously.

Best of all, Honda Sensing comes standard in most trims, especially in recent model years. The suite of proprietary drives aids features, for one, collision and road departure mitigation systems, which can help you stay on course while navigating the Auburn ME area, and secondly, lane-departure and forward-collision warnings to keep you situationally aware around Camden ME. Bring lane-keeping assist into the mix, along with the safe distancing capabilities of adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition to keep you up to date on local rules. The takeaway: Honda Accord offers ultimate peace of mind wherever the road takes you.
