As you take the wheel of the Honda Accord, you’ll probably notice all the infotainment technology decorating the ride. Depending on your trim level, this may include a standard 7-inch touchscreen display or an available 8-inch touchscreen display.
Whether you keep the standard system or upgrade, you’ll have Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and Streaming Audio as a constant feature. This lets you wirelessly connect your smartphone to your Accord audio speakers to stream music or answer phone calls without taking your hands off the wheel.
If you decide to upgrade to the 8-inch Display Audio system, you’ll get a high-resolution electrostatic touchscreen. It includes hard keys that allow you to easily adjust the primary controls without having to search for text on your touchscreen display while driving.
This comes with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ integration, too. These apps fully integrate your smartphone with your infotainment system so that you can access applicable features through your display screen. Integrated features include navigation, audio streaming, and phone calling.
A Head-Up Display is available on select trim levels, as well. It projects important information on the lower portion of your windshield. For example, it can display traffic signs, gear position, and navigation directly in your line of sight to keep you easily informed.
The Honda Accord comes with two powertrain options that optimize drivability and power:
The 1.5L engine is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with sport mode for those times when you want more responsive steering and an aggressive acceleration. On select trim levels, this engine can also pair with a 6-speed manual transmission that gives you complete control over your drive and an even sportier feel.
The 2.0L engine, on the other hand, comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters that allow you to shift-on-demand when you want to.
If you want to maximize on your fuel efficiency, we suggest the 1.5L engine with the CVT. Together, this pairing can get you an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 30 MPG city and 38 MPG highway.1
The 2019 Accord is packed full of driver-assist technologies and smart safety features that can help you be even more aware of your surroundings when you hit the road.
This all comes standard as part of the Honda Sensing® suite, which includes tech like:
Traffic Sign Recognition is a useful feature that also appears on the Head-Up Display. It uses traffic pattern technology to keep track of important road signs, like speed limits. This way, you’re more likely to be informed about the rules of the road.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow is another one of our favorite pieces of technology. It allows you to set a preferred cruising speed and following distance. If you approach slower-moving traffic on the highway, it’ll automatically adjust your speed to the preferred following distance.
The Accord is a versatile and agile sedan that’s compact enough to help you conveniently navigate tight city streets and heavily trafficked roadways. However, you’d never know it from the spacious feel of the Honda Accord interior.
This car seats a total of five passengers between the first and second rows. Passengers can stretch out in the standard 105.6 cubic feet of passenger volume, which encompasses the following dimensions:
You’ll also have 16.7 cubic feet of trunk space to pack all your luggage next time you hit the road for a weekend getaway, or to hold a full load of groceries. If you need to bring longer items, like skis or hockey sticks, the folding rear seats let you extend the trunk space into the cabin.
The Honda Accord comes in six trim levels. This allows you to truly customize your sedan to meet your needs. These 2019 Accord trim levels are:
The LX is the base-level trim and comes with all the standard features, including the 1.5L engine, the CVT, the Honda Sensing® suite and the 7-inch infotainment display. From there, many of the other trim levels will add on or upgrade to create a unique experience.
The Sport trim, for example, is the only one that comes with the 6-speed manual transmission (though the CVT is available). It’s also the first trim level where the 8-inch touchscreen display is standard, along with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™.
If you want the works, you can upgrade to the Touring trim level. This configuration is the only one to come with the Head-Up Display, wireless phone charger, and mobile hotspot capability. It also comes standard with the 2.0L engine.
