Convenience, Amplified

Among the plentiful and impressive features offered in the Honda Accord, an assortment of them specifically boost convenience and comfort. The following amenities are included among them:


Honda Accord Apple Car Play

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, offered standard in the Accord EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims, allow drivers to easily and conveniently connect their smartphones and access phone features on the Accord’s touchscreen display, including calling, text messaging, music, navigation, and more—all while staying safely focused on the road. For tips on using Apple CarPlay, see the accompanying video.

Honda Accord Auto Dimming Rearview Mirror

Auto-dimming rearview mirror, which comes standard in the EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims, instantly dims when the high beams from another car shine on it, protecting the driver from being blinded and letting the driver stay focused on the road rather than on manually fiddling with the mirror.

Honda Accord Dual Zone Climate Contol

Dual-zone automatic climate control, which comes standard in all of the Accord models, automatically adjusts and maintains the temperature and ventilation in the car according to settings input by the user.

Honda Accord Homelink

HomeLink Remote System, which is offered standard in the EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims, can be synced up with remote-controlled devices in and around the car owner’s home, including lighting systems, garage doors, alarm systems, and more.

Honda Accord Smart Entry

Smart Entry, which is offered as a standard feature in the EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims, can lock, unlock, start, stop, and relock the Accord without the use of the key as long as the key is somewhere on the driver’s person.

Honda Accord Headlights

Auto-on/off LED headlights, which come standard in the Touring trim, automatically change from high beams to low beams when the system detects another car, and these lights also turn on and off automatically.


Entertainment Enhancers

The Accord additionally delivers an array of entertainment-boosting amenities to bolster in-car connectivity and turn up the dial on automotive entertainment, such as:

  • HD Radio, which comes standard in the EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims and features a variety of audio-enhancing features like digital sound, iTunes tagging, and more.
  • Three audio system choices, with standard audio features included across the Accord trim lineup that include a USB audio interface, speed-sensitive volume control, Pandora capability, MP3 and Windows Media Audio playback capability, and a radio data system. SiriusXM Radio comes standard in the EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring models.
  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, which is an available feature in the EX-L and EX-L V-6 models and comes standard in the Touring trim. This system offers features that include Honda HD Digital Traffic, voice recognition, and Song by Voice.

High-tech Safety

In recognition of its impressive performance in crash tests, the 2017 Accord has been granted a 5-Star Safety Rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.* The 2016 Accord earned 2016 Top Safety Pick+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety,** and while the 2017 model has not yet been tested by the IIHS, it’s very likely the Accord will continue its years-long streak of Top Safety Pick honors during the 2017 model year.

In addition to impressive industry ratings, the Honda Accord also delivers a host of high-tech safety and driver-assist features to help keep drivers and passengers protected on the road. Protective features that come standard in all of the Accord models include:

  • Side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, which detect the collision during a side impact and send data to the control unit. If a severe impact is detected, the driver or front passenger side airbag is signaled to inflate immediately into the space between the door and the person in the seat.
  • SmartVent front side airbags, which employ speed and seat sensors to control airbag deployment for the front passenger, adjusting the airbags or shutting them off altogether as the size of the passenger dictates.
  • Brake assist, which delivers extra braking power during emergency stopping situations, helping to shorten the total braking distance and ensure maximum stopping force is applied.
  • Multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, which offers drivers a view of what is behind them as they back up the Accord.

Safety features that are offered as available amenities in the Accord lineup include:

  • Lane keeping assist system, which goes into action at speeds above 45 mph to help keep the Accord safely inside its lane of travel. This system employs a camera, which is located between the rearview mirror and the windshield, to monitor lane markings on the road. If the vehicle moves away from the center of its lane without the turn signal being activated, an electric power steering system applies torque to return the car to the center of its lane.
  • Honda LaneWatch, which is standard in the EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring models, uses a camera that is integrated into the outside mirror on the passenger side, providing drivers with live video feed that shows the right-hand lane and what is in it. This helps drivers make right-hand turns and change lanes more safely.
  • Collision mitigation braking system, which fully applies brake force in the car if an impending collision is detected and the driver has not responded fast enough to warnings.
  • Adaptive cruise control, which assists in maintaining a constant speed and a predetermined following interval when traveling behind other cars.

Rival Rundown

The Accord is not only chock-full of outstanding amenities, but it outdoes many of its competitors in the realm of technology offerings.

The Accord, for instance, provides standard anti-theft stereo technology, which the 2017 Ford Fusion does not include.

The Accord’s standard dual-zone automatic climate control is offered in every 2017 Accord model, while the 2016 Hyundai Sonata does not offer dual-zone automatic climate control as a standard feature.

While rain-sensing windshield wipers are standard in the Accord Touring trim, the 2016 Kia Optima lineup does not offer this feature.

Two-driver memory settings come standard in the Accord EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring models—a feature the 2016 Nissan Altima models do not have.
