The 2017 Honda Accord Impresses with Top-Notch Technology


The 2017 Honda Accord ranks as the latest in a reliable line that has impressed for four decades. After a year absence, the Hybrid returns while the entirely new Sport Special Edition trim stands out among seven trims with its luxurious leather-trimmed seating, red accent stitching, two-level heated front seats, and special chrome badging in the rear. It includes your choice of Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) or a six-speed manual.



Stay Safe & Sound

This new Accord for sale makes for excellent family transportation or individual commuting with a raft of standard driver-assist and safety technologies known as Honda Sensing™.

They start with Adaptive Cruise Control that maintains a safe distance automatically from the car in front, even slowing and speeding up to keep up with traffic changes until it reaches the speed you set. If you’re in danger of hitting the car in front of you, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ can stop your sedan in a blink, helping you to avoid an accident.

To prevent you from drifting away from the center of your lane, the Lane Keeping Assist Systems keep you on the correct path and out of someone else’s. A small camera that can read road markers alerts you if you’re about to stray, too; Honda calls this the Road Departure Mitigation System. It can then take action to ensure that you stay safe.

You’ll always know what’s behind you with the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, which reveals normal, wide, and top-down views. Activate the right turn signal, and Honda LaneWatch™ displays what’s in the next lane on the large touchscreen.

A Fuel-Efficient Sedan

Impressing just as much under the hood is the 2.4-liter inline-four with Direct Fuel Injection and the Eco Assist™ System, which achieves up to 36 MPG on the highway and 27 MPG in the city when paired with the CVT. Opt for the Hybrid Accord and efficiency jumps to 49 MPG in the city and 47 MPG on the highway—two of the best ratings in its class. This model uses two motors: one for accelerating from a dead stop and the other for starting and charging the first motor. You can run the Accord with both motors by switching to Sport Mode.



Interior Refinement Completes the Accord

Inside the cabin, a world of sophisticated comfort and technology awaits.

Premium materials like leather and wood grain surround all riders. Settle into the driver’s seat, which power-adjusts in 10 different ways, and enjoy the view. Store up to two different positions in memory, too, so you’ll always be ready to go. For convenience, the center console has enough cupholders and ample room to store a tablet. You and your front passenger won’t have to argue about the right comfort level either since you can set individual temperatures through the Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control system.

To start the engine, just press “Push Button Start,” as long as you have the key fob with you. It’s easier to keep your eyes on the road when you can adjust the volume, change the music, or answer the phone using controls mounted on the ergonomically designed steering wheel. And when you need to change gears, just flip the mounted paddle shifters. You can even manage home technology, such as garage doors and security systems, with HomeLink®.

The convenience doesn’t end there, either. Find the best route using a navigation system that is one of the industry’s best. For those who like their tunes, play your favorite music over the available 360-watt Premium Audio System that comes with seven speakers, including a subwoofer. You can control your entertainment through the available 7-inch Display Audio Touchscreen or on the steering wheel. A wireless connection is available so you can always stay connected to those on the outside. Just pair your compatible smartphone through the infotainment center, and you can access or stream Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay™, or Android Auto™.
