American Honda Motor Company recently announced the 2020 Honda Accord is being delivered to Southern California Honda dealers. And, of course, my friends at Rock Honda in the SoCal’s Inland Empire already have them.
The 2020 Honda Accord continues it’s highly awarded current, 10th, generation. And, while I have yet to drive a 2020 Accord, I’m sure it’s delivering fuel efficiency and value that punches far above its price tag. Which, of course, is always appealing to us buyers.
2020 Honda Accord Trim Configurations & Prices
So, the 2020 Honda Accord trim configuration options and MSRPs are as follows.
- LX $24,800
- Sport $27,460
- EX $28,770
- EX-L $31,200
- Touring $37,030
*MSRP includes $930 destination charge.
Available 2020 Accord Engines & Transmissions
And, depending on the trim configuration, 2020 Honda Accord buyers will have two optional turbocharged 4-cylinder engines.
First, there’s the 1.5-liter DOHC direct-injected engine providing 192-horsepower and 192-lb-ft of torque.
Plus there’s the more powerful 2.0-liter VTec Turbo with 252-horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. And that 2.0-liter also comes with Honda’s smooth-shifting yet sporty 10-speed automatic transmission.
Honda touts the Accord being the last midsize sedan in its class that also offers a manual transmission. And with either engine, but especially the 2.0-liter, a stick-shift would definitely add yet another element of fun to the Accord’s drive.
Honda Sensing Technology Comes Standard
All 2020 Honda Accord’s come standard with Honda Sensing. And that is Honda’s suite of driver-assistance technologies and safety features.
- Collision Mitigation Braking System
- Lane Keeping Assist
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Automatic High Beam Headlights
- Multi-Angle Rearview Camera
- Driver Attention Monitor
Additional available driver assistance technology includes blind spot information and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
Accord 5-Star Safety Rating
And Accord’s many awards are nice reassurance regarding the vehicle. But the standout is definitely from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA). Because of the organization’s 5-star overall vehicle score drivers can feel all the more secure in their decision to buy a Honda Accord.
Plus, the 2020 Honda Accord is expected to receive a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Just as you’d expect the 2020 Honda Accord comes with plenty of connectivity tech. And that includes Bluetooth music streaming and Hands-Free Link standard.
Plus, as you move up the trim levels there are many additional options to keep you connected. For instance, the 8-inch audio display screen on Sport trims and above. Better yet, that includes both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
And if you go with the top-of-the-line Touring model you can subscribe to HondaLink. That technology allows you to lock and unlock your doors through your smartphone from basically anywhere. Additionally, it includes more features to keep you safe on the roads like emergency calling, stolen vehicle tracking, and automatic collision notification.
The Touring trim, with subscriptions, also offers 4G LTE Wi-Fi and, for Amazon Prime Customers, package deliveries via Amazon Key.
And two of my personal favorites that have been in the Touring trim in recent years. (Although unconfirmed features as of this writing.)
First, the surprisingly crystal-clear heads up display.
Also, wireless phone charging in the center console.
