A wide array of technology features comes standard in the head-turning Accord Hybrid—no upgrade needed! Included among them are amenities that are designed to make the driving experience much more convenient, including:
HomeLink Remote System: The HomeLink wireless remote system that comes standard in the Accord Hybrid is built into the car’s overhead module. The HomeLink system can be programmed with remote codes to control up to three devices at the driver’s home from right inside the car, such as a garage door, lighting system, or security system.
Bluetooth Connectivity: Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Bluetooth streaming audio come standard in the Accord Hybrid, providing drivers with safe, hands-free access to phone functions and audio content.
Device Connections: The high-tech Accord Hybrid provides drivers and passengers with lots of options for connecting and charging their wireless devices. A USB audio interface, a 12-volt power outlet, and a 1.5-amp charging port come standard up front, and for the rear-seat passengers there is a 1.0-amp charging port and another 12-volt power outlet located in the center console.
Other advanced convenience-boosting amenities are offered standard in the higher Accord Hybrid trim levels, including:
Various state-of-the-art driver-assist features also come standard onboard the Accord Hybrid, helping keep car occupants safe, wherever they’re headed. Included among them are:
Collision Mitigation Braking System: The Collision Mitigation Braking System monitors traffic conditions ahead of the Accord Hybrid and, if a potential collision is detected, alerts the driver with visual and audible warnings. If an unavoidable collision is detected, the system can apply full braking power to help avoid the crash, whether or not warnings have been issued.
Road Departure Mitigation System: The Accord Hybrid’s Road Departure Mitigation System is designed to identify lane markings. If the car begins leaving its designated lane without the appropriate turn signal being activated, this system issues alerts and can provide braking force and steering assistance to keep the car safely on the road and in its proper lane.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines: A multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines also comes standard for the Accord Hybrid, delivering three different image options of what is behind the car. Guidelines forecast the car’s future path based on steering input from the driver to further assist when the Accord Hybrid is being operated in reverse.
Lane Keeping Assist System: The Accord Hybrid’s Lane Keeping Assist System helps cut down on corrective steering input needed from the driver. This system uses a camera and the vehicle’s Electric Power Steering to help keep the car safely centered in its designated travel lane. If the system senses that the Accord Hybrid is drifting from the middle of its proper travel lane, corrective steering torque is applied to bring the car back to the middle of its lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control: Adaptive Cruise Control lets drivers enjoy the convenience of cruise control even when there is light traffic on the road. Once the driver inputs a desired speed and following interval, this system goes into action, constantly tracking the distance between the Accord Hybrid and the vehicle ahead of it and adjusting speed to maintain the set following distance. The system can also apply braking power, when needed.
Honda LaneWatch: Honda LaneWatch is Honda’s exclusive blind-spot display system. Using a camera that is integrated into the passenger-side exterior mirror, Honda LaneWatch delivers live images of the blind-spot area on the passenger-side of the car whenever the right turn signal is activated, helping drivers change lanes and make right-hand turns more safely.
