How trim affects the price of Honda Accords

The Honda Accord was first introduced to the American market in 1981. Since then, the Accord has been one of the most popular cars on the road. On Mojo Motors, used Honda Accords from the 2010 model year are the most popular and most prevalent. And at only a few years old, many 2010 Accords qualify for a manufacturers certified pre-owned (CPO) programs and have under 40,000 miles.

Shoppers looking to purchase a Honda Accord notice there are a few different trims like LX, LX-P, EX and EX-L. So what’s the difference between all the different Accord trims? We’ll explain, along with the average price for each trim, number of price drops and how much they drop in price before selling.

2010 Accord LX

$15,585 Average Price / 2 Price Drops / $742 Total Price Drop

The Accord LX is the base model that comes with either a stick shift or automatic transmission. It has A/C, cruise control, six airbags, traction control, hubcaps and a sound system with auxiliary input jack. It doesn’t have power seats, but it does have power locks, mirrors and windows. The average mileage for a 2010 Accord LX is about 31,000.

Accord LX-P

$15,852 Average Price / 1.5 Price Drops / $932 Total Price Drop

The Accord LX-P has all the features of the LX, but has a little more pizazz. In fact, the ‘P’ in LX-P’ stands for pizazz. Just kidding, it stands for ‘Premium.’ The LX-P Accord has alloy wheels instead of hubcaps, power seats, alarm system and chrome exhaust tip (shiny!). We recommend spending the extra couple of bucks on the LX-P versus the LX because that extra pizazz makes for a more comfortable ride and contributes to better resale value. The average mileage for an Accord LX-P is about 31,000.

Accord EX

$17,933 Average Price / 2 Price Drops / $972 Total Price Drop 

The 2010 Honda Accord EX and EX-L had an MSRP of nearly $30,000 because the car was loaded with standard features and a host of add-ons like a navigation system, sunroof, heated seats, fog lights and 17″ wheels, just to name a few. The ample standard features for the Accord EX and EX-L is why the average price is nearly $2,000 more than the LX-P and LX trims even though the average mileage for a 2010 Accord EX is 33,000.
