If there's one thing Honda knows, it's how to build cars right. Anyone buying a sedan this year deserves to enjoy the bounty of features and comforts to be found inside a 2021 Honda Accord. The sleek new design has a mature style, and technology and safety features are generous on every trim. Overall, this midsize sedan feels more like a luxury vehicle than an affordable family car, and you will want to lean into every curve in the road with the responsiveness of its superior performance. The Honda Accord is a car everyone can love, and millions already do.
This year has lots of new features in store for buyers, from a larger infotainment touchscreen to a new Sport trim, but the same roomy comfort of the interior and pleasant driving experience are all still there. On the outside, you'll see a new grille and wheels, while on the inside, you'll find user-friendly technology to make modern life run more effortlessly than ever. Whether you need a family car for little ones or a vehicle that gets great mileage for commuting, the 2021 Honda Accord has everything you need in a vehicle perfect for any lifestyle. Experience the best way to drive anywhere you need to go in the remarkably quiet and elegant sedan that keeps on giving year after year, mile after mile.
Even if you take the same route to work every day, you deserve a vehicle that is a joy to drive. You also deserve a vehicle that saves on gas and reduces emissions, which is one of the many ways Honda stands head and shoulders above most manufacturers. No matter which engine you choose, Honda powertrains are engineered to be efficient and to run smoothly. From the standard turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine to the available turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, Honda offers gas-powered engines that have power without being thirsty.
If you prefer a hybrid powertrain, Honda also offers an Accord Hybrid that sits between the two gasoline engines when it comes to power while offering superior fuel economy. This fuel-efficient engine is easy to drive, and you may be pleasantly surprised by how much power this tidy engine offers when you hit the gas. Critics agree that the hybrid engine is a favorite for both power and fuel savings, and Honda tuned the transmission to balance the switch between gasoline and electricity. Regenerative braking is also seamless and responsive while recapturing energy for the electric motors. Once you slip behind the wheel of either the gas-powered or hybrid Accord, you won't believe how well it hugs the road and takes off when the lights change.
Once you sink into the peaceful cabin of a 2021 Accord, you may find it hard to leave. Even at entry-level trims, the Accord seats are supportive and adjustable, and dual-zone automatic climate control is standard. Simple-to-use buttons and knobs are located below the now-standard eight-inch touchscreen in the center stack, so you won't have to fumble through screens to locate the heating or cooling controls for ventilation. Available heated and cooled seats will make your drive comfortable in any weather, and with the available remote start feature, you can have your Accord heated or cooled before you have to leave the driveway.
The cabin's sound insulation makes highway drives quiet, and the Accord's speed-sensitive volume compensation will automatically adjust the volume of the sound system to match road noise. While you cruise the roadways, utilize the on-board system to operate your phone hands-free so you can answer calls, texts, and listen to your favorite music, radio, and podcasts without taking your hands off the wheel. For more options, Honda provides steering wheel-mounted controls for the audio system and cruise control and even injects a little more adventure into driving with available paddle shifters.
Inside, the 2021 Accord is spacious, even in the rear. Backseat passengers will enjoy over 40 inches of legroom, providing plenty of space for even tall adults, and your little ones in car seats will fit just as easily. For those times when you need to transport large cargo, the folding rear seat can open up the trunk space to more than double its size, though even large items like strollers, large luggage, and golf clubs will easily fit in the 16.7-cubic foot trunk. Even in the hybrid models, you will find the same amount of cargo space, so you won't have to sacrifice room to have an efficient car.
Springing for an upper trim can offer luxuries like a power moonroof, ambient lighting, leather seats, and a driver's seat memory. Even your rear seat passengers can benefit from heated seats in those colder months. No matter which trim you purchase, the 2021 Accord comes with features that will keep you comfortable all year long.
Life is fast-paced when it comes to technology, and Honda is taking it in stride. In the 2021 Accord, buyers can expect even the entry-level trims to come standard with a wide array of technology that will keep them connected while driving. Every Accord comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which will allow you to access apps on your phone through the standard eight-inch infotainment screen. Bluetooth keeps your hands on the wheel by providing you with the convenience of voice commands for your phone and allows streaming your favorite music or other content you love to listen to on the way to your destination.
In upper trims, the head-up display will keep your eyes on the road by projecting data from your dashboard, navigation details, and even incoming phone calls right on the windshield. Available wireless charging and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make charging and connecting your smartphone even easier without the need for plugging in or keeping track of chargers. Upper trims won't ever be lost with Honda satellite navigation because your navigation will always be connected. Other exciting features are offered through HondaLink, which subscribers can access through an app on your smartphone. It provides remote access to starting and locking your vehicle, checking on fuel levels, and much more, and you can do it from anywhere.
Few car manufacturers offer the comprehensive safety of Honda vehicles. Both active and passive safety features work on your behalf to keep you and your passengers sheltered from accidents and can help prevent many types of common accidents entirely. Even better, the incredible features of the Honda Sensing driver-assist safety suite are standard on all trims of the 2021 Honda Accord at no extra cost. A standard multi-angle rearview camera helps you safely drive in reverse, with views of the vehicle's surroundings to help you see better.
Honda continues to innovate new technology to enhance safety and remains one of the frontrunners of manufacturing some of the safest vehicles on the road today. Few of Honda's competitors can match both the engineering and technology offered. With Honda Sensing on the Accord, you can ease into your drive knowing you have a full suite of driver-assisted features to help you. The collision mitigation system will automatically brake if a potential impact is detected, and the road departure system can keep you on the road if you happen to drift without noticing. Road sign recognition can keep track of signs you may miss while paying attention to traffic, so you won't accidentally speed or skip your exit. These life-saving features will be there for you in every Accord.
