2021 Honda Accord comes slightly changed from the last year. It is for sure that the manufacturer will not invest much in the design of sedans. We all witnessed how SUVs and crossovers win in the competition, and new buyers do not like these large and non-practical cars anymore. It is the reason why we do not expect significant changes in this model in the future, either.
- The model has the same popular design and appearance that attracted old buyers.
- There are reliable and practical engines under the hood.
- Old buyers claim that seats are not comfortable.
- People have complaints about transmission before.
The manufacturer has not said much about the changes in the design of the 2021 Honda Accord for the future. It is expected that the model will have only slight variations in details, like the front bumper. You will see the new shape of the lights, and a little more large air intake on the bottom. It is expected that Accord still competes with Toyota Camry.
The fact that Accord beat in crash test 2018 sounds tremendous and surely retains the model on the list of most popular models on the market. The deep rear end now is even more rounded and soft-edged with changes in the design and shape of taillights. However, the manufacturer had not invested that much in sedans since they are not accessible in the past few years.
There are no significant changes in the design of the cabin in the 2021 Honda Accord. It is a quite simple but practical model, with great large seats and quality materials on them. The dashboard is made to follow buyers’ demands, but mostly in terms of the practices and everyday usage. When it comes to technology, there are big and exciting things in the offer.
We expect competition with the Hyundai Sonata in that field. They will offer driver-assistance technology, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot information system. Still, some of the buyers will be able to choose only in higher trims, like Touring one. It should be the best-equipped version among those models, though.
2021 Honda Accord Engine
There are no surprises when the engine in 2021 Honda Accord is about. There should have two (or it is better to say three) options that future buyers should choose between. The first one is the 1.6-liter 16-valve engine model. The second one is a little bit stronger, a 2.0-liter 16-valve option, with two options, 192 and 272 horsepower model.
All three engines should come with a manual transmission, which is not quite common in the sedan cars world. Although the manufacturer has not said much about a hybrid option, we are sure that the model with this engine option is planned to be made in the future.
2021 Honda Accord Release Date and Price
Leaving all behind, we have heard a lot of great news about the 2021 Honda Accord. The manufacturer has decided to offer a special discount of $750 for loyal buyers. However, even if we do not take that in mind, the price of $24,000 sounds more than attractive for buyers. We expect that the manufacturer will have new customers in mind.
Some of them should have special offers for high trims and a more extended warranty. Unfortunately, whatever manufacturer does, we do not predict the long life of sedans anymore. It is for sure that young buyers do not like sedans, and especially those that do not have hybrid engines in offer. It will be hard to attract new buyers again.
