    Watch the Honda Accord Take on a Ford Mustang, Subaru WRX, and VW GLI

    You might not believe it, but the Honda Accord can hold its own pretty well

    Throttle House has shined a very bright light on the Honda Accord’s impressive performance, specifically the model with the 2.0-liter, turbocharger, inline-four. In this video, the channel has put the Accord up against the Ford Mustang EcoBoost, Subaru WRX, and the Volkswagen Jetta GLI. All of these vehicles pack a turbocharged four-banger, and it appears as if all feature the an automatic transmission. So, we’re on level ground here… kind of.

    In the first race, which happens from a standing start, the Jetta and WRX make use of their launch control systems. The Jetta lost miserably in this race, most likely something that can be attributed to its crappy tires. The WRX, Mustang, and Accord all manage to cross the line fairly close together. The Mustang won, but the Accord came in second, beating out even the WRX.

    Without launch control, the results are the same, but the Mustang gets tot eh line a bit faster. The WRX started to gain some extra momentum near the end, but it was too little too late, as it still couldn’t overtake the Accord. The poor Jetta GLI is proving itself as the true undog of the pack yet again.

    The third race you get to see has all three vehicle take off from a rolling start. The Accord actually gets the jump here, but it eventually falls victim to the Mustang – not by much, though as they both finish at almost the same time with the Accord falling just a hair shy. This time around, the Jetta actually comes in third, with the WRX failing miserably. I guess every dog has his day, right?

    The point here is that the Honda Accord actually delivers some pretty impressive performance – especially for a car that has a modest 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque under the hood. Naturally, the Subaru would be a little more competitive had there been snow on the ground, but this just wasn’t the season for it to shine its brightest.
