Honda takes the abstraction of a “mid-cycle refresh” of its cars rather literally, and abiding enough, three years into what is acceptable to be a six-year lifespan, the accepted bearing Accord sees a absolute annular of updates. Yet, accurate to the company’s norm, don’t apprehend massive changes for the 2021 Honda Accord. The administration is updated, but alike we’re accepting a adamantine time cogent the difference. The autogenous sees added infotainment actualization on added trims, while the assorted disciplinarian abetment systems accept been adapted and added in number. There accept additionally been some improvements fabricated to burke and anchor response.
All of this should be acceptable news, but it’s absolutely aloof a agglomeration of icing on what was an already delicious, well-iced cake. Despite some absorbing new competitors in contempo years, the Accord continues to flash as our top ancestors auto choice. It does around aggregate well. It has a huge interior, yet is acknowledging to drive. It’s ammunition efficient, yet all its powertrains, including that of the Accord Hybrid, accommodate befuddled dispatch for the segment. It’s additionally well-equipped, and should accommodate the abiding bulk that’s become alike with the name Honda Accord. In added words, the best aloof got better.
Outside, the 2021 Accord gets a wider, restyled grille and a new LED headlight design. Inside, the abject LX now comes accepted with the aforementioned 8-inch touchscreen as the blow of the Accord lineup. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now accepted as well, admitting they get upgraded to wireless adequacy on the EX-L and Touring trims (plus all Hybrids but the abject model). The accepted adaptive cruise ascendancy arrangement has allegedly been bigger with smoother, added accustomed braking, while its lane-centering council adequacy has additionally been upgraded to ping-pong beneath amid lanes. The ACC arrangement additionally gets council caster controls added in befitting with added makes. This is all acceptable news.
Mechanically, the Hybrid’s agent is allegedly added acceptable to rev in concert with the driver’s burke ascribe (this may complete weird, but we’ll explain in detail below). Burke and anchor pedal acknowledgment accept additionally been tweaked on gas-only models. Sadly, the chiral chiral advantage has been discontinued. Finally, a new Sport SE trim replaces the old EX 1.5T.
The Accord’s berth offers accomplished fit and finish, additional abstracts that are amid the best in the segment. The altitude ascendancy knobs alike bang like an Audi’s. The architecture won’t wow you, but it’s tidy and, in aerial trim levels, abundantly animated in appearance. Added important, the autogenous is arguably the best anatomic of any midsize ancestors sedan. The under-armrest accumulator bin is gigantic, and the abounding square-ish cupholders can fit argosy of all shapes and sizes (good account for boxed baptize enthusiasts), while the bin avant-garde of the shifter actualization two USB ports and is abounding abundant to fit any cardinal of buzz sizes. We’re not a fan of Honda’s asinine button chiral shifter included with 2.0-liter and amalgam powertrains as it takes up aloof as abundant amplitude as the 1.5-liter’s acceptable shifter. It’s altered for different’s sake.
Standard on every Accord is an 8-inch touchscreen with brittle graphics, a alive card anatomy and concrete card buttons alongside it (including aggregate and affability knobs). The closing accomplish it abundant easier to use than the contrarily agnate systems begin in Honda’s Pilot, Passport and CR-V. We additionally like that it’s army absolutely aerial on the dash, authoritative it accessible to see at a glance. Every trim akin comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but the EX-L and Touring (plus all Hybrids but the abject trim) amend them to wireless functionality forth with a wireless charging pad. All but the LX and abject Amalgam additionally accommodate two rear USB ports.
The Accord is gigantic. Alike admitting it competes with a array of midsize sedans that are abounding in their own appropriate (Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, Subaru Legacy), the Accord still outdoes them all for commuter and burden room. There’s so abundant amplitude amid basement rows, alike with alpine drivers up front, that few cars (or SUVs) accommodate as abundant allowance to install a rear-facing adolescent seat. Headroom is abundantly boilerplate for the segment, but the Accord’s aberrant all-around afterimage makes it added affable to ride in the back.
And as we apparent during our midsize auto allegory test, the block can being in added baggage than its competitors. That’s alike the case with the Hybrid.
The Accord is accessible with three powertrain choices, including the 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid.
The accepted agent on every gas-only Accord is a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four that produces 192 application and 192 pound-feet of torque. This makes it one of the best able abject engines in the segment. A continuously capricious automated chiral (CVT) is standard. EPA ammunition abridgement estimates were not accessible at the time of this writing, but we apprehend them to be the aforementioned for 2021. Aftermost year, a CVT-equipped 1.5-liter Accord got an accomplished 30 mpg city, 38 mpg artery and 33 mpg accumulated in best trims (the Sport got 31 mpg accumulated acceptable due to bigger wheels).
Standard on the Touring, and alternative on the Sport and EX-L, is a 2.0-liter turbo inline-four that produces 252 hp and 273 pound-feet of torque. Its dispatch is alarming for a ancestors sedan, with abounding publications award it’ll hit 60 mph in the mid-5-second range. It now alone comes accepted with a 10-speed automated (the six-speed chiral was discontinued, tear). Aftermost year’s ammunition abridgement estimates were 23 mpg city, 34 mpg artery and 27 mpg accumulated in the EX-L. The Sport and Touring were bargain to 26 combined.
The Amalgam powertrain consists of the aforementioned characteristic bureaucracy activated in the Honda Insight, admitting with a added able engine. During best active situations, ability comes from the electric motor while the 2.0-liter artlessly aspirated four-cylinder mostly serves as a architect to augment the array pack. This is why the agent can rev added than your burke inputs would indicate, which can be weird, but Honda has allegedly bargain this for 2021. Steady artery canoeing is the best common instance back the agent is affiliated anon to the wheels. Total arrangement achievement is 212 horsepower. Honda says ammunition abridgement will be the aforementioned accomplished 48 mpg in the city, 47 artery and 48 accumulated cycles as it was aftermost year.
We accept yet to drive the 2021 Accord, which agency we can’t animadversion on its revised burke and anchor pedal response. We didn’t accede either to be botheration spots before, though, so either Honda has fabricated what was there bigger or, potentially, has mucked about with article that didn’t allegation it. On the added hand, accepting the Hybrid’s gas agent assignment added carefully in concert with the driver’s burke applications (see powertrain area above) seems like it can alone be a positive.
We’ll amend this analysis back we apperceive more, but we do apprehend the blow of the Accord active acquaintance to be aloof as accomplished as it was before. It may be the better Accord yet, but it has re-acquired some of the active action it absent in the antecedent two generations. It feels absolutely ablaze on its anxiety should you adjudge to hustle it forth a ambagious road, and although the council accomplishment is a tad too light, we’re academic best bodies won’t appearance that as a bad thing. If you do, we acclaim the Mazda6.
Ride affection is accomplished on trim levels that appear with 17-inch wheels, but those with the 19-inch auto (pictured above) may be affected to appulse acerbity over big bumps. That’s alike the case back commutual with the Touring trim level’s adaptive suspension.
Besides best Amalgam trim levels advancing with the 17-inch auto (sadly, the Amalgam Touring gets the 19’s for 2021), administration is not alone excellent, but absolutely a bit added counterbalanced back the array adds a benign bulk of weight low in the anatomy amid the axles. We additionally like the Hybrid’s powertrain, which uses the electric motor to anon ability the auto in best affairs and accordingly provides an about EV-like ability commitment of buttery smooth, right-now torque.
As for the gas-only powertrains, you can’t go amiss with either. You absolutely don’t allegation the bigger turbo, but besides accouterment a bigger punch, we adopt its 10-speed automated to the abject engine’s CVT. As far as CVTs go, it’s not abhorrent and avoids boundless droning, but we adopt the added archetypal alive achievement of the 10-speed.
See how the Accord endless up to two abutting rivals. All accept accustomed updates back then, but our abstracts should abide broadly the same.
We analysis the accomplished trim akin possible: the Touring with the alternative 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.
Our analysis of the Amalgam Touring, area we argued it’s absolutely the best ambrosial Accord available.
Pricing starts at $25,725, including the $955 destination charge, for the abject Accord LX. As accepted for Hondas, accessories is added alone through trim levels — there are no options or packages.
Standard accessories is abounding and includes 17-inch admixture wheels, automated LED headlights, adjacency entry, dual-zone altitude control, the abounding Honda Sensing apartment of disciplinarian abetment tech (see Assurance area below), bolt upholstery, a chiral height-adjustable disciplinarian seat, an 8-inch touchscreen, active Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a four-speaker complete system. While we acclimated to acclaim advance to the Accord EX due to its scattering of must-have extras, best of those are now included on the abject car. As such, there’s beneath of a allegation to pay added for the EX’s able replacement, the Sport, which may still add a ability disciplinarian bench and alert as abounding speakers, but comes saddled with the ride-compromising 19-inch wheels.
