The 2021 Honda Accord lineup is offering customers the best of everything Accord owners have come to love about this car series.
The 2021 cars boast of more power, great fuel economy ratings, updated styling, and improved safety features.
2021 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring
The Hybrid Touring has been upgraded as well. Here are some of the things I like about this 2021 sedan.
Styling and Technology
All the new Accords feature a restyled grille for a more sophisticated look. The wider grille has improved integration of the Honda Sensing system’s radar unit. On either side of the grille are new LED high and low-beam headlights. Also, there are new alloy wheel designs and a brand new color option: Sonic Gray Pearl.
On the interior, there is an 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen entertainment system now standard. Also standard, are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Wireless charging for smartphones is part of the tech system. Rear seat passengers can access the dual 2.5-volt USB ports.
Power and Fuel Efficiency
The 2021 Accord Hybrid benefits from updates to the innovative dual-motor hybrid system that offers a more direct and quicker throttle response. The two-motor hybrid system uses a propulsion motor and a generator/starter motor. The peak total system output includes 212 horsepower and 232 lb.-ft torque delivery. The Accord Hybrid has a top fuel economy rating of 48 mpg.
In addition to the updates made to Accord Hybrid’s two-motor system, the 2021 Accord’s 1.5-liter turbo engine has improved Idle Stop performance, giving the driver a faster engine start-up when the brake is released.
For 2021, all Accord models are equipped with Rear Seat Reminder and a rear seatbelt reminder. The Rear Seat Reminder pings when the car is turned off, reminding drivers to check the second-row seat for children and pets when getting out of the car.
The Accord Hybrid Touring now features a new front and rear braking system referred to as Low Speed Braking Control. This new system can sense solid objects at low speeds and warn the driver to apply the brakes to help avoid a collision. Honda Sensing also features updates to Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist systems.
