Among the Accord’s cutting-edge safety offerings that come standard in each trim are features that include:
Multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, which gives drivers a clear view of what’s behind them as they operate in reverse.
Brake assist, which identifies emergency braking situations and provides added braking power, ensuring maximum stopping force and helping to shorten the braking distance.
SmartVent front side airbags, which utilize speed and seat sensors to adjust passenger airbag deployment or shut the passenger airbags off altogether, depending on the size of the passenger sitting there.
Safety features that are available onboard the Accord include:
Collision mitigation braking system, which automatically brakes when an impending crash is detected and the driver doesn’t respond quickly enough to audible warnings.
Honda LaneWatch, which comes standard in the Accord EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims. This feature uses a camera that is integrated into the passenger-side exterior mirror, giving drivers live video feed of the right-hand lane.
Adaptive cruise control, which automatically adjusts the Accord’s speed and maintains a safe distance between the Accord and other vehicles.
Another must-have element in today’s driving world is in-car entertainment.
Motoring has long since gone beyond the mere utility of getting from one place to another. Nowadays, cars must contain extra amenities that will help keep drivers and passengers occupied and entertained while out on the road.
The Accord features the following state-of-the-art entertainment features:
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which come standard in the Accord EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims. These features enable car occupants to conveniently connect smartphones to the Accord and access features like music, text messaging, navigation, calling, and more. For tips on using Android Auto, see the accompanying instructional video.
Three audio system options are offered in the Accord, with accompanying standard features that include Pandora capability, MP3 and Windows Media Audio playback capability, a USB audio interface, speed-sensitive volume control, and a radio data system. SiriusXM Radio comes standard in the EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims.
HD Radio comes standard in the EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims, providing a variety of audio-boosting features like digital sound, iTunes tagging, and more.
