The award-winning mid-size sedan arrives with a slight price increase for the 2019 model year.
Since it was introduced last year, the all-new Honda Accord has earned an excellent reputation, winning the coveted North American Car of the Year award, no less. But despite this, Honda has been struggling to sell the redesigned midsize sedan in the US. Since the Accord was all-new last year, the 2019 version arrives without any significant updates and some minor pricing adjustments.
Available at US dealerships from today, November 1, the 2019 Honda Accord starts at $23,720 for the base LX 1.5T model excluding an $895 destination and handling tax, a $150 increase over the 2018 model. On the other side of the spectrum, the range-topping 2.0-liter turbocharged Touring version starts at $35,950, which comes with a segment-first 10-speed automatic transmission as well as the HondaLink telematics system, allowing drivers to lock and unlock the doors from virtually anywhere via their smartphones.
Standard features across the Accord line-up include LED headlights and taillights, dual-zone climate control, a 7-inch customizable digital driver's meter, push-button start, and Honda Sensing safety and driver assists with available rain-sensing windshield wipers, Blind Spot Information System, and a Driver Attention Monitor.
Inside, the 2019 Honda Accord includes an 8-inch high-res Display Audio touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support for the Sport trims and above, as well as a 6-inch head-up display, automatic Bluetooth phone pairing, wireless device charging and next-gen HondaLink Assist with 4G LTE in-car Wi-Fi.
Engine options have been carried over from the 2018 model, including a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder unit with 192 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque; a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four with 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque; and a hybrid that pairs a 2.0-liter i-VTEC unit with an electric motor for a total output of 212 hp. Non-hybrid models can be mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, a Continuously Variable Transmission, or a 10-speed automatic.
