Honda’s 2019 Accord will arrive at dealerships across the U.S. beginning Thursday, November 1, with an entry-level MSRP of $23,720, excluding an $895 destination and handling tax.
At the other end of the range sits the $35,950 2.0-liter turbocharged Touring version, 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 lineup include LED headlights and taillights, dual-zone climate control, a 7-inch customizable digital driver’s meter, push-button start stop and the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assist technologies, with systems like the optional rain-sensing windshield wipers, Blind Spot Information and Driver Attention Monitor on tap.
Additionally, there’s also an 8-inch high-res Display Audio touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support (Sport trims and above), plus 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.
Available powertrains include a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder unit with 192 HP (194 PS) and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque, a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four with 252 HP (255 PS) and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm) 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 (215 PS).
In order to emphasize the sedan’s sporty character, a short-throw 6-speed manual transmission is available for non-hybrid models, joined by a CVT and the previously-mentioned 10-speed automatic.
