Exterior Honda Accord Features

Starting off the lineup, the base Accord LX has automatic headlights, 16-inch alloy wheels, and LED taillights.

The Sport trim stands out with its rear decklid spoiler, 19-inch wheels, LED fog lights, daytime running lights, and dual exhaust tips.

The EX trim drops the dual exhaust tips and spoiler and gets 17-inch wheels. It also adds a sunroof, heated mirrors, keyless entry plus ignition, and remote ignition.

The mirrors on the EX-L have a power-folding feature for convenience. To return to dual exhaust tips, go with the EX-L V6.

The top-of-the-line Touring trim has 19-inch wheels, automatic high beam control on the LED headlights, a rear decklid spoiler, and automatic wipers.

Interior Honda Accord Features

The base Accord LX will give you cruise control, full power accessories, and dual-zone automatic climate control. This trim also has height adjustment for the driver, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and a rear seat that folds in one piece.

For extra style, the Sport trim has cloth seating and leatherette bolsters, 2-way power lumbar and 8-way power adjustment for the driver, leather on the steering wheel, shift paddles, and a 60/40 rear seat.

The Accord EX is based on the LX, but it has the power front seat of the Sport. For more luxury, choose the Accord EX-L with its leather upholstery, memory for the driver’s seat, heated front seats, and 4-way power for the passenger seat. It also adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The shift paddles come back in the EX-L V6 trim, but they are removed in the Touring trim. This trim adds heat to the rear outboard seats.

Honda Accord Technology

All Accord trims come with at least four speakers, a CD player, a USB port, an auxiliary audio jack, Bluetooth for phone and audio, Pandora compatibility, and a 7.7-inch display for infotainment. Once you reach the EX trim, you also get HondaLink with smartphone connectivity, Siri Eyes Free, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an extra 7-inch touchscreen, six speakers, an extra USB port, and HD and satellite radio. The EX-L gives you seven speakers. For navigation, opt for the Accord Touring.

Honda Accord Safety

Standard safety on the Accord LX includes a rearview camera. The EX trim adds the blind spot system known as Honda LaneWatch. The EX-L features an upgraded rearview camera with multiple angles. The range-topping Touring trim comes standard with the Honda Sensing package that is optional on the other trims. It also has parking sensors in the front and rear.

Accord Engines

The base trims come with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine generating 185 horsepower and a torque of 181 pound-feet on most trims. The Sport increases this to 189 horses and 182 pound-feet. The EX-L V6 trim has the 278-horsepower, 252-pound-foot, 3.5-liter V6.
