What's New

When you think of a midsize sedan, it’s probably the 2021 Honda Accord that pops into your head. Honda’s classic sedan has become a benchmark for the segment, and it’s back with a refresh that doesn’t change the fundamental formula.

The exterior gets a few styling tweaks, including a wider grille and revised headlights. Inside, base trims get better standard infotainment, and wireless smartphone integration is now standard on the higher trims. Finally, there’s some bad news for traditionalists – the six-speed manual transmission has been discontinued.

Choosing Your Honda Accord

The 2021 Accord comes in four trim levels: LX, Sport, EX-L, and Touring. Prices start from $25,725 including destination for the base LX model and extend up to $37,655 for the range-topping Touring.

Engine Choices

The gas-powered Accord is available with two engines, both with four cylinders and a turbocharger. The lower three trim start with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, while the Touring gets a 2.0-liter turbo-four. The larger engine is optional on the Sport as well for an additional $4,530.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
1.5L Turbo 4-Cylinder192 hp192 lb-ft33 mpg
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder252 hp273 lb-ft26 mpg

The base engine uses a continuously variable transmission, but the 2.0-liter gets a 10-speed automatic. All Accords are front-wheel drive.

The 2.0-liter engine has considerably more power than the base engine, and it’s capable of sending the Accord from 0-60 mph in about six seconds.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

All Accord models seat five passengers, with excellent cabin space for the class. Second-row passengers are treated to 40.4 inches of leg room, which is more than some full-size sedans.

Cargo capacity is equally excellent at 16.7 cubic feet. That’s no match for hatchbacks or crossovers, but it’s about as good as you’ll find in a sedan.

Safety Features

The Accord is among the safest vehicles on the road. Every model comes with automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. The EX-L gets front and rear parking sensors, and the Touring adds blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

On top of those features, the Accord has a strong crash test record. It earned a perfect five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA, and last year's model was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick. That designation should carry over to this model.


Tech gets an upgrade for 2021, especially in the base trim. An 8-inch display is now standard across the range, as are multiple USB ports and compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Sport adds rear USB ports, while the EX-L upgrades to wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a wireless charging pad, and satellite and HD radio. The Touring throws a head-up display, navigation, and wi-fi capability into the mix.

Honda Accord

LX - From $25,725

Especially with its updated infotainment system, the Accord LX is a good value. It comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, push button start, and Honda’s impressive kit of safety tech. On the outside are 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, and automatic high beams.

Honda prefers to divide its features by trim, rather than in packages. There aren’t many standalone options either, but you can add front and rear parking sensors ($269) or a wireless charging pad ($350).

Sport - From $28,185

The Accord Sport adds some luxury features and nods to performance. A spoiler decorates the trunk, with chrome exhaust tips and 19-inch wheels underneath. Paddle shifters are mounted on a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and the driver’s seat is 12-way power adjustable.

The Sport starts with the base engine, but it’s available with the upgraded powertrain for an extra $4,530. Along with its 10-speed automatic transmission, the 2.0-liter engine brings remote start, heated front seats, and a power moonroof.

The Sport Special Edition is also available. It combines the styling of the Sport with the features of last year's EX trim. These include leather upholstery, heated front seats, remote start, and USB charging ports in the second row.

EX-L - From $32,045

The EX-L brings the best of Honda’s tech, including wireless smartphone compatibility, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. The parking sensors are standard here, as are the moonroof and driver’s seat memory settings.

Touring - From $37,655

Seated at the head of the table is the Accord Touring, which brings the larger engine and all the luxury Honda can muster. This means heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a head-up display, and adaptive dampers. The infotainment system includes navigation and a wi-fi hot spot, and a one-year subscription to Honda’s concierge service. On the safety side, the Touring gets body-colored parking sensors and a low-speed braking assist if any obstacles are detected.

CarsDirect Tip

The best value in the 2021 Honda Accord lineup is the Sport trim with the upgraded engine. The extra power is worth the price, and it brings a few welcome creature comforts with it.

Still a beauty, but loses a unique powertrain. The 2021 Honda Accord looks incredible inside and out, but it competes in a class chock-full of surprisingly premium-looking sedans. It also has potent powertrain options, but so do many of its competitors.

The one thing that set the Accord apart from the crowd was its manual transmission. Sadly, this is gone in this year's Accord.

Potent turbocharged engines, RIP manual transmission. The Accord continues with its healthy allotment of turbocharged power, starting with the 192-horsepower 1.5-liter four-cylinder and capping with the 252-hp 2.0-liter four-pot. These keep it in line with most competitors, but the Toyota Camry's optional 301-hp V6 leads the pack.

The star of the Accord's powertrain has long been its available six-speed manual transmission, an endangered species in this class. In 2021, the manual gearbox takes one more step toward extinction, as Honda drops it from the Accord. Buyers now get a continuously variable transmission with the base engine or a 10-speed automatic with the 2.0-liter.

Buyers in the Snowbelt who need all-wheel drive can skip the Accord, as it's available in front-wheel drive only. These buyers will prefer the optional AWD in the Nissan Altima or the Subaru Legacy, which gets it standard.

If a hybrid is in your future, the Accord Hybrid delivers 232 total hp and an EPA-estimated 48 miles per gallon combined. If you opt for the Accord Hybrid Touring, its larger wheels will cost a drop in fuel economy to 43 mpg combined.

These numbers are OK, but they're below the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and Toyota Camry Hybrid's up to 52 mpg combined. On the other side of the equation, the Sonata Hybrid has 40 fewer hp than the Accord Hybrid, and the Camry Hybrid is 24 hp short of the Accord Hybrid, so there are some trade-offs to consider.

Honda Accord

Loads of space and features. Inside, the Honda Accord is a place to spend some serious time soaking in all the midsize class has to offer. Most of its competitors have comfy cabins with lots of room, but the Accord is something special.

The Accord can seat five with relative comfort, but it's best suited for four people. Rear-seat riders get front-seat comfort with plenty of support and 40.4 inches of leg room. This easily beats all the Accord's key competitors, as its closest rivals are the Camry at 38 inches, the Mazda Mazda6 at 38.7 inches, and the Legacy at 38.5 inches. The class' real sore spots are the Sonata (34.8 inches) and Altima (35.2 inches).

On top of its roomy back seat, the Accord also has a cavernous trunk with 16.7 cubic feet of space. Its nearest competitor is the 16-cubic-foot trunk in the Sonata. Every other midsize sedan comes up far short on trunk space, including the Legacy (15.1 cubic feet), Camry (15.1 cubic feet), Mazda6 (14.7 cubic feet), and Altima (15.4 cubic feet).

Features are also abundant in the Accord. Its base LX trim comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and dual-zone climate control, beating the Camry and Legacy's standard 7-inch screens and the Mazda6's lack of standard smartphone integration.

Mature styling inside and out. The Accord gained tons of fans in its last redesign, as it took a giant step toward a more mature look inside and out. Highlighting the exterior is the Accord's upright grille, LED headlights, clean body lines, shallow-raked C-pillars, and array of wheel options.

Inside, the Accord comes in various shades of tan and gray, offending not a single eye. The cabin also features an elegant design that punches well above its class.

Though it offends no one, the Accord's timid looks may bore more adventurous buyers. These shoppers can hit the polar opposite in styling with the wild Sonata or find a stylistic middle ground in the refined and sporty Mazda6.

Final thoughts. The 2021 Honda Accord has been a top seller for many years for good reasons. It has wonderful styling, a surprisingly upscale interior, loads of features, a cavernous cabin and trunk, and much more. But it's now got big-time competition from all angles, including the sudden surge of the stylish and well-equipped Hyundai Sonata.

Buyers who prefer a more daring design will find this in the Sonata or Mazda6. Want more power and a sportier drive? The Toyota Camry's V6 offers incredible straight-line acceleration, and its TRD model tosses in a sportier suspension and look.
