Honda unveils 2021 Accord sedanOctober 12, 2020
Honda has unveiled the 2021 model year version of the Accord midsize sedan. The car has received an updated appearance, as well as many new technologies. The prices for the new car are also known.
Virtually all of the styling changes on the new Accord are in the front, and they come together to give the sedan a slightly less cluttered look. The false radiator grille has now become wider – due to this, the designers were able to more accurately integrate the radar into the “nose” of the car. The front bumper has smaller holes for the fog lights. The LED headlights have been improved to shine farther in low beam. The high beam is longer and wider. Sonic Gray Pearl is a new exterior color available on the Sport, Sport Special Edition and Touring trims.
The 8.0-inch infotainment screen, which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto services, is now standard on all trim levels.
The composition of the engine range of the 2021 Honda Accord remains the same, but there are still minor changes. Both turbocharged engines and plug-in hybrid engines have changed the software for the electronic engine control unit – as the company assures, improved throttle response. Hybrid engines now have increased range in pure electric mode.
Adaptive cruise control provides smoother braking, while Lane Keeping Assist provides more natural steering adjustments. All versions of the 2021 Accord have a reminder that there is someone in the rear seats so that drivers cannot leave a child or pet in the car. For the new assistant to work when braking at low speeds, sonar is used – there is the possibility of automatically stopping the vehicle to avoid a collision in conditions such as being in a parking lot.
The sedan will now be available in a new Sport Special Edition, which replaces the EX 1.5T. The newest car comes standard with leather upholstery, heated front seats, 12-way adjustment of the driver’s seat, heated mirrors and remote engine start. As with standard Sport trim, the exterior of the sedan features 19-inch wheels, a trunk spoiler, LED fog lights and a dark chrome grille.
Under the hood is a 192 horsepower (260 Nm) turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a variator.

Not so long ago, we wrote about what the sporty Honda Civic Si could be. Renders of the next Honda Civic Si hit the web. If the Japanese automaker still decides to release a new generation of the “hot” version of the Civic Si, then it may well appear to buyers in just such a performance.
