0-60 time: I4 vs V6

Hey guys. My first post here at the forums. I was doing some research on my 2006 I4 Accord EX Sedan and stumbled upon from MSN Autos (scroll all the way down). These can't be right, can they? Is the I4 really only 0.11 secs slower than the V6?!

that is wrong. those look like the numbers for the i4, manual vs auto

the v6 6m does 0-60 in 5.9, i think the auto is like 6.3

could be actual observed data. In my experience the v6 takes off like a raped ape once the RPMs get up there past 3000 rpm, so stoplight to stoplight they aren't fast unless you have a manual and like to roast your clutch.

The V6 does make the car noticeably heavier so stopping/handling should be better in the I4.

I think acceleration times will vary depending on how they conduct the tests. Car and Driver has tested both the I4 and V6 Accord multiple times. Here are their results...

2007 Honda Accord I4 MT
0-60 mph: 7.5 seconds
1/4-mile: 16.1 sec 87 mph


2007 Honda Accord I4 AT
0-60 mph: 8.1 seconds
1/4-mile: 16.4 seconds 85 mph


2006 Honda Accord V6 MT
0-60 mph: 5.9 seconds


2006 Honda Accord V6 AT
0-60 mph: 6.6 seconds
1/4-mile: 15.1 seconds 95 mph

Yep... that's the whole VTEC design.

I can’t compute 0-60Mph (Because Mph cannot be measured at the drag strip unless associated with a known distance; IE: How fast are you moving at the 100’ mark) but I sure can understand the 1/4ET & Mph. First, the Mph for the 244Hp is probably spot on with a density altitude of close to sea level. I was able to Mph 93.95Mph, 93.71Mph, 93.21Mph, 93.16Mph & 93.09Mph in my wife’s 2007 Accord EX-L coupe J30A5 automatic. Now my Mph is at a NHRA track (Houston Raceway Park) where the Mph is an average of the top speed generated at two points on the track 1254’ & 1320’.

Now the ET that they publish is defiantly way off. My guess is they left off idle and let the transmission in drive; but it still is slow as I was able to pull down a 15.26ET & a 15.33ET in drive with a best of 15.149ET manual shifting 7000Rpm (Perfect!) and (Brake torque 1000Rpm). It’s possible they may have measured their time going uphill?

Drag racing results 15.149ET 93.95Mph

Now let’s look at the numbers for the 2006-2007 Accord sedan K24A8 automatic. The Mph seems way high as the best I was able to pull down in my 2004 160Hp manual EX-L sedan was 86.30Mph with a 15.89ET. I believe the 16.22ET is maybe just possible but optimistic for the 2006-2007 Accord sedan K24A8 automatic, but not probable that it could run 4.5Mph faster in the ¼ mile than the “older” 160Hp 2004 manual Accord.

I won’t get my 2007 Accord EX-L sedan K24A8 manual to the track until next January (Maybe) where I predict a 15.75ET 88Mph. The bottom line here is that the manual transmission Accords can be (If launched properly without wheel hop) much quicker in the ¼ mile than the automatic versions. It’s all in the 60’ (That’s 60 foot) time and the automatics launch on a sticky drag strip with the ferocity of an 18-wheeler!

2004 EX-L manual 15.892 86.30Mph in the ¼ mile

Does it really matter if both are "slow" anyway? IMO the benchmark for a quick car would be decent muscle-car performance back in the late 60s and early 70s, which is a 13-second 1/4 mile at around 100mph.

I own both engine/tranny cars, and there is at least a full second difference between the two, if not more.

I think the most commonly quoted 0-60 for V6 AT Gen 7 is 7 sec.

1999 Honda Prelude, base 5 speed.
2008 Yaris Liftback, auto.

/ />
7.5 seconds to 60 for the 2006-2007 I4 is just right (for me) for a family sedan. Anything in the 6s is definately nice to have but with these gas prices I either wouldnt use it or I'd feel guilty about burning my $$ at every stoplight. Brisk acceleration is still possible in the I4 without too much of a penalty so I'm personally happy with the 2.4L. Now if only we could see what the 2.2L diesel was like...
