8 Coolest Features Of The 2021 Honda Accord


- Advertisment -spot_img

As synonymous with the term practical as its rival the Toyota Camry, the Honda Accord is a well-respected midsize sedan the world over. While many dismiss the Accord as boring or not exciting enough, the 2021 Honda Accord has plenty to offer its inhabitants, both in terms of safety and style.

While the following is by no means a definitive list of the 2021 Honda Accords features, it is a list of some of the best things that the Accord has to offer. In addition, these features might just prove that the Honda Accord is not as boring as it is made out to be.

8 Soft Touch Materials Throughout

The cabin of the 2021 Honda Accord is reportedly quite opulent considering its price point. Constructed of a majority of soft-touch materials, the cabin feels much higher-end than one would be led to expect.

This feeling of quality sheds a positive light on the Accord as being a comfortably priced vehicle while simultaneously maintaining its status of quality and being built to last and go the distance.

In addition to the myriad of soft-touch materials throughout the Accord’s cabin, the seats in the 2021 Honda Accord are quite comfortable, regardless of trim. This is another huge plus for the Accord. While trim does matter in terms of cloth or leatherette seating, the seats remain comfortable throughout the 2021 Honda Accord lineup, from the base LX trim to the top-of-the-line Touring.

This is a huge win for the 2021 Honda Accord, as seating in modern cars is often one of the biggest gripes that consumers have. With its adjustable headrests, comfortable bolstering, and optional lumbar support, the Accord definitely wins in the seating arena in its class.

6 10-Speed ​​Automatic Transmission

While most modern mid-sized sedans suffer from CVTs noncommital attitudes in terms of what gear (or lack thereof) to hold, the 2021 Honda Accord is ahead of its time with its transmission. While still a CVT, its 10 speeds offer enough of a feel to the driver to make for an enjoyable driving experience without constantly revving or feeling underpowered.

While there will always remain those who do not wish to own a vehicle with a CVT transmission, it does appear to be the way that the automatic gearbox is going. If you are on the edge, the 2021 Honda Accord could be the right sedan to get into the CVT driving experience with as it still reportedly provides an above-average overall driving experience.

Turbocharging engines can be about as divisive as putting CVT transmissions in cars as discussed above, but the 2021 Honda Accord is successful in this area as well. Its peppy 1.5L 4-cylinder and optional 2.0L 4-cylinder engines offer tremendous power while continuing to sip gas. Honda rates the 2021 Accord at up to 30 mpg city and 38 mpg highway. Those are some arguably impressive figures for a solidly built midsized sedan.

Additionally, turbocharging an engine oftentimes makes drivers feel like they have a more rewarding driving experience, providing yet another positive for the 2021 Honda Accord’s available engines.

The 2021 Honda Accord offers a pleasingly modern yet intuitive digital cockpit. From the available digital instrument cluster to its 8-inch display and matching climate controls, the Accord is a perfect mix of technology and old-school character.

While some don’t enjoy the number of screens put in cars in the modern era, the Accord does a good job of incorporating technology without going over the top like other vehicle manufacturers tend to do all too often nowadays.

While it is increasingly getting more difficult to even think of buying a car without some sort of screen, the 2021 Honda Accord tastefully integrates its 8-inch screen. Unlike the previous generation Accord or some other newer vehicles of different brands, there is no longer a multitude of screens but a single one that is easy and intuitive to use.

The new Honda Civics also uses this type of screen and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. One negative to note is that reviewers and users have noted the lag time when using the screens across the entire modern Honda lineup, but this seems to be a common gripe across almost all-new infotainment systems in modern vehicles, regardless of brand.

2 LED Lighting

Car And Driver

One thing that is hard to argue with when it comes to modern cars is how bright their lights are. Driving at night has become a risky task when a modern car with its bright LED lights comes up behind you. If you are driving the 2021 Honda Accord, however, these types of LED lights come standard in both its headlights and taillights.

LED lighting is far superior at night, and the 2021 Accord will most certainly illuminate the road in front just as far away as the driver needs to see. Additionally, the LED taillights will warn any traffic behind you of your intentions, be it signaling to turn or braking.

1 Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto seem to be all of the rage at the moment. While Bluetooth was once the thing to have in a new car, Bluetooth has seemingly been pushed to one side in favor of syncing one’s phone right through one’s own car’s in-dash infotainment system. While this allows for Bluetooth as well, it also allows the integration of apps allowing for a more personalized feel of an in-dash system.


The 2021 Honda Accord comes standard with both of these systems which helps push it far above its competitors in terms of technology. Oftentimes, vehicles will come standard with compatibility for one or the other, but the Accord allows for both as standard- a big win.

Whether you are an Apple fan or an Android enthusiast, the 2021 Honda Accord allows you to stay connected and in control, no matter what your preferred operating system or phone brand is.
