2021 Honda Accord
Honda has given the Accord and Accord Hybrid models a light styling refresh for 2021 that includes a tweaked grille design, new optional LED headlamps, new alloy wheel designs, and a new colour: Sonic Gray Pearl. The cabin gains the previously optional 8.0-inch infotainment display as standard equipment across the range and now also boasts standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which offer a wireless connection on EX-L and Touring trims. Honda has relocated the Accord's USB ports for easier access and has also introduced a Sport SE trim which combines the equipment of the now-defunct EX trim with the styling of the Sport trim. Honda says it has recalibrated the throttle response on all Accord models for better off-the-line performance; a new rear-seat reminder feature alerts the driver to check the back seat when exiting the vehicle if one of the rear doors was opened prior to the journey. Sadly, the Accord is no longer available with the six-speed manual transmission.
