October 22nd, 2020 by

Excited about the 2021 Honda Accord? You should be! This car has received a classy redesign, from technology updates to the interior and exterior. Although the Accord that we all know and love is not drastically changing, there are some noted updates to consider that push the Accord above its competitors. The exterior of the 2021 Accord now has a modern redesigned front grille and LED headlights addition. The high and low-beam lights offer great assisted lighting in low lit areas. In terms of the interior, the Accord won’t look much different from its predecessor. It will still have its 8-inch modern floating infotainment screen, now standard on all models. With this comes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration that is also now standard on all trims unlike before. 

Connectivity doesn’t stop with Apple and Android integration, but the 2021 car is also available with wireless charging and additional USB ports for easy and convenient connectivity. 

New safety additions include a rear seatbelt reminder system standard on all models. This safety update helps remind those in the vehicle that rear passengers have not yet bucked their seatbelt. The available front and rear braking system, or the Low-Speed Braking control system is a new safety upgrade that helps sense objects at low speeds to aid the driver to stop for those objects. 

What’s under the hood of the Accord has also received a fresh new update. The original two turbocharged engines have received updates to improve internal software as well as the throttle of the Hybrid vehicle. These small changes have created a better and more powerful Accord than ever before. The Accord also has a standard 1.5-liter VTEC Turbo engine that provides 192- horsepower, with a 252- horsepower, 2.0 VTEC turbo engine offered on the Sport and Touring (highest level) trim. 

The Sport Special Edition trim is a new model added to the Accord lineup that replaces the EX 1.5T trim level. Although the Sport SE is not available with the 2.0T motor, the Sport SE does have some other great additions that are sure to enhance your overall driving experience. For example, this new trim offers available features including: 

  • Remote Engine Start
  • 8-inch Infotainment System
  • 12-Way power driver seat 
  • Heated Power Side Mirrors 
  • 19-inch Machined Alloy Wheels 

The 2021 Honda Accord has an array of new updates, redesigns, and add ons that help to give it a modern and sophisticated new appearance! While these changes are not drastic to the body and interior of the Accord, they still provide a great refreshed look and feel to the car.
