2020 Honda Accord: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The Honda Accord went through a revolutionary redesign in 2018 that brought in a more refined look and a new lineup of turbocharged engines. With this redesign entering just its third model year, we expect the 2020 Honda Accord to be a carryover model.

As a carryover, we expect no visual changes when the 2020 Honda Accord arrives in showrooms. It will continue with a mature look that includes a more coupe-like rear glass, a longer hood, a bold front end with a large chrome grille strikethrough, and sleek body lines. Inside, we expect things to remain the same too, so look for plenty of soft-touch materials, a “floating” infotainment screen, tons of advanced tech, and premium materials on higher trim levels.

With no changes coming, we expect the 2020 Accord’s standard features list to remain generous. If this proves true, it will come standard with 17-inch wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition, a 7-inch infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and more.

The 2018 Accord redesign brought in new turbocharged engine options and eliminated the fuel-hungry V6 engine, and we expect these bits to remain the same in the 2020 Accord. If this is the case, the 2020 Accord will come standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 192 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes standard with a continuously variable transmission, but there is an available six-speed manual. The optional 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder pumps out 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Buyers can get this engine with either a six-speed manual of a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The current Honda Accord comes loaded with standard safety gadgets, including forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking. This helps it earn an IIHS Top Safety Pick rating with “Good” safety scores in all crash tests and a “Superior” rating in forward-collision prevention. We expect these ratings to remain the same in the 2020 Honda Accord.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2020 Honda Accord yet, but previous release dates lead us to a fall 2019 release.

With no changes coming, we expect the 2020 Honda Accord’s pricing to remain close to the current model’s MSRP range of $24,640 to $36,870 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Honda Accord will compete with the Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry, and Kia Optima.
