2016 brings some revisions for the Honda Accord. It gets some updated exterior design and Apple Car Play and Android Auto integration. Honda Sensing is newly optional across the lineup.
The 2016 Accord is available as a sedan or a coupe and features two different engine choices. The basic engine is a 2.4L 4-cylinder making 185 horsepower, or 189 horsepower in "Sport" tune. The optional engine is a 3.5L V6 that makes 278 horsepower. Transmission options include a continuously variable transmission (CVT), only available on the 4-cylinder, and a traditional manual transmission, which is available on 4-cylinder sedans as well as on 4- and 6-cylinder coupes.
The Accord comes in several configurations. Sedans are available in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L V6 and Touring. Base Accord LX trims come nicely equipped with features that include a Bluetooth-enabled stereo with audio streaming capabilities, a rearview camera, dual-zone climate control, hill start assist, 16-inch alloy wheels, an 8-inch screen and an alarm. The basic AM/FM/CD player also comes standard with an auxiliary input jack as well as a USB interface. The whole system is Pandora Internet Radio-compatible.
The Accord only gets nicer from there. The Sport trim includes 18-inch wheels, a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat, a leather wrapped steering wheel and a bit more power. EX Accords build on the LX by adding Apple Car Play and Android Auto smartphone integration, one-touch power moonroof, 17-inch wheels and a nifty engine start button. EX-L Accords have a leather trimmed interior, Homelink, 10 and 4-way power adjustable heated front seats, additional safety features including a lane departure warning system and a forward collision warning system and a standard CVT transmission. Touring models get adaptive cruise control, automatic headlights, LED fog lamps and a standard V6 engine, along with all the other goodies from the EX-L. Options include a satellite navigation system on the EX-L and Touring models and a CVT transmission on the LX and EX models.
The sporty coupe features two fewer doors than the sedan, but still offers a usable back seat. The swoopy styling provides a good compromise between good looks and a useful interior. The trim levels compare similarly to those in the sedan with the exception of the Touring model which is not available as a coupe. In a generous nod to the enthusiast, Honda allows the V6 Accord coupe to come equipped with a proper 6-speed manual transmission for maximum fun and driver involvement.
Safety starts with the latest electronic stability and traction control systems, which all come standard along with anti-lock brakes. Dual stage multiple threshold front airbags, front side airbags and side curtain airbags are standard as are active head restraints and a brake assist function. EX-L and Touring models get lane departure warning and forward collision warning.
For 2016, a safety systems package known as Honda Sensing is optional on every trim. It includes Lane Departure warning, Lane Keeping Assist that can actively steer the Accord back into the lane, Adaptive Cruise Control that helps keep a set distance from the vehicle in front, Forward Collision warning that notifies the driver of an impending collision and can even apply the brakes automatically.
