The 2021 Honda Accord has been revealed and sales have already started in mid-October. The new facelift comes not only with design upgrades but also with technological upgrades that are necessary to attract new customers to the luxury sedan.
When it comes to the facelift, Honda has only changed the front fascia by removing all unnecessary bells and whistles. Instead, the front-end represents a more elegant and stylish look. The front-grille has been widened to blend in with the sleek headlights, while the fog light openings have been reduced in size to give the sedan a sense of practicality. Honda has also improved the LED lights to illuminate more of the front allowing the driver to see further down the road. The changes apply to both the low beam and the high-beam functions. Moreover, a new color has been added to the line-up called, ‘Sonic Grey Pearl’, which will only be available on selected trims.
Inside the cabin, the standard display has been upgraded to the 8.0-inch infotainment system that hosts both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If you opt for the EX-L and Touring variants Honda gives you wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. What’s more, the rear passengers also get two USB ports along with the standard two ports in the front.
The Japanese auto giant has not changed the powertrain specifications for the 2021 Honda Accord, but it has improved the engine’s performance via an upgrade in the software. As a result, the engine will drive smoother and will become more efficient as it depends more on the hybrid system.
When it comes to safety, the Honda Accord gets a better lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control along with a rear-seat reminder, and a rear seatbelt reminder. The higher trims get an additional feature called the low-speed braking assist that will prevent any accidents while parking.
