For the 2021 model year, the Honda Accord will see some changes. This midsize sedan is set to sport a more athletic style while also boasting a more high-tech vibe on the interior.

The Honda Accord updates begin with the exterior. Its restyled grille has a modern feel, making the sedan look sportier than before. With new high- and low-beam headlights, you will also get better visibility, which is helpful during long winter nights in Elizabethtown, KY. The top-level Accord models will also have new alloy wheel designs to further enhance the sedan’s presence.

On the inside, the 2021 Honda Accord comes with a new standard 8-inch touchscreen display, which was originally only available on the second-tier trim. You will also be able to keep connected with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, while EX-L and Touring models will have the wireless version of this technology.

The 2021 Accord will also have newly positioned USB charging ports, which have found a new home at the front of the center console for easy access. In the back, the majority of the Accord’s trims will come with two 2.5-volt USB ports so your passengers can keep their electronics charged as well.

Every Accord will also come with a brand-new feature — a Rear Seat Reminder System. You will also get a low-speed braking control system on the higher trim levels in addition to the standard Honda Sensing® suite of safety technologies.

Honda Accord and Civic Honored Once More in Car and Driver 10Best List

Honda Accord and Honda Civic

Although it comes with little surprise, it’s an honor worth celebrating: the 2019 Honda Accord and the 2018 Civic have once again been named to the Car and Driver 10Best list. The Accord Hybrid was included under the Accord title, and the Civic Hatchback Sport, Si, and Type R were named the specific trims that earned the Civic a spot on the list. This is the Accord’s 33rd time being featured on the list, and the 7th time for the Civic.

These two Hondas have been favorites for decades now, and the new models continue to impress. 2018 saw the beginning of the tenth generation for the Honda Accord, and it innovated the segment with its superior performance, sophisticated style, and fantastic hybrid option. From front to back, Honda has thought of everything for the Accord, from advanced connectivity technology like Apple CarPlay™ integration, to standard Honda Sensing® safety and driver-assist technology that will elevate your confidence while driving.

The Civic lineup has something for everyone, from sedans to hatchbacks, from elegantly simple designs to upscale, sporty interiors. The Civic Sport, Si, and Type R are particularly notable for their sophisticated and dynamic performance. Car and Driver even described the Civic Type R as “quite possibly the highest performing and most satisfying front-wheel-drive car on the market today.” Despite being a vehicle line that has been around since the 70s, the Civic remains undeniably modern with its cutting-edge features.

This win hardly comes as a surprise. The 2018 Accord delivers amazing bang for its buck, turning heads as it goes. The Accord has made big changes in recent years, as it’s now built on a lighter platform that makes it even nimbler on the road. Under the hood, it boasts the nameplate’s very first turbocharged engine options that beautifully combine power and efficiency. The 2018 Accord has also been noticed for its ample interior passenger space, offering both comfort and practicality.

Mark Phelan, an auto critic for the Detroit Free Press, applauded the Accord for its game-changing design for mid-size cars: ““SUV sales are soaring and traditional sedans are in retreat, but the sleek 2018 Accord raises the bar for a class of vehicles that remains important to hundreds of thousands of buyers every year.”

The Detroit Free Press isn’t the only publication that has noticed the Accord. The Accord has received multiple accolades, including Overall Best Buy of 2018 by Kelley Blue Book and Car of the Year Finalist by Motor Trend.
