One of the most iconic models on the Honda lineup, the Accord has been around since all the way back in 1976. Just a couple of years ago, the 2018 model year to be more specific, the Honda Accord entered its tenth generation! Although that major redesign just occurred four years ago, Honda wanted to keep the Accord as fresh as possible, so for the 2021 model year, it received a mid-generation facelift before being released near Tacoma WA.
The new Honda Accord is available in either the traditional Accord Sedan model or its more efficient sibling the Accord Hybrid, with the exciting Honda hybrid powertrain underpinning its engineering. With plenty of design and feature enhancements for the new model year, we hope you’re as excited as we are about the new midsize sedan!
One of the most exciting changes for the 2021 model year, is the introduction of a new trim level called Sport Special Edition (or Sport SE for short). This new trim level replaces the outgoing EX 1.5T trim, building onto the existing Sport trim level with even more great features, increasing its value. It adds leather seats throughout the cabin, heated seats in the front, 4-way power adjustments in the front passenger seat, heated mirrors, the Smart Entry system and remote engine start to everything that’s already available in the Accord Sport 1.5T trim.
This is just one major change. Other upgrades include several exterior design changes, such as a wider grille, redesigned LED headlights on the Sport trim and up, smaller fog light openings, new alloy wheels for LX, EX-L and Touring and a new exterior color option (Sonic Gray Pearl) on the Sport, Sport SE and Touring trims. Inside, the 8” display audio screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard across the board, while the EX-L and Touring trim levels upgrade to wireless Apple CarPlay and Android auto.
