Honda Accord Technology Features

  • 2017 Honda Accord

    The standard and available Honda Accord technology features have made the past and present versions of the sedan some of the most popular cars at New England Honda Dealers. From advanced connectivity to navigation to driver assistance and accident prevention, advances in auto technology have helped make the Accord one of the most competitive cars in its class. Let’s take a look at what that means for the average driver.

Connectivity Features

Many drivers think Honda Accord technology features are limited to navigation systems, HondaLink telematics, Bluetooth, and similar features. Those are certainly a part of the sedan, but after we go through them with you, be sure to keep reading and see the advanced safety features and how competing sedans compare.

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: Honda’s Bluetooth HandsFreeLink system uses shortwave radio to communicate with your compatible devices, making hands-free phone calls, streaming audio, and more. Just pair your phone once and the Accord knows to connect automatically.
  • Honda i-MID: An 8-inch 800×400 WVGA screen comes standard on the Accord, bringing media settings and vehicle information front and center.
  • Display Audio Touchscreen: The available Display Audio touchscreen adds a 7-inch interface to bring improved control over media and seamlessly sync with smartphones via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay: Our accompanying video shows how easy it is to set up Apple CarPlay. Android Auto is just as simple, and these systems bring familiar smartphone interfaces and apps right to the Display Audio touchscreen.
  • HondaLink: This Honda-exclusive telematics system connects your smartphone and your Honda via a unique suite of apps. The Aha app brings podcasts, audiobooks, music, social media, and more to your car, while Honda’s service app lets you schedule maintenance and service appointments with ease.
  • Navigation: The available satellite-linked navigation system tracks your Accord and guides you to where you need to go. Responding to voice requests and routing you around traffic, it’s more of a concierge than a typical navigation system; it can even find points of interest along your route.

Advanced Safety

Now that you’ve seen what the Honda Accord technology features are able to do for connectivity and convenience, let us show you where Honda’s advancements really shine: safety. A standard multi-angle rearview camera is on all Accord models for added peace of mind when backing up, and drivers can add advanced Honda Sensing driver assistance features like these to help keep your attention on the road and reduce the risk of accidents:

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: Radar sensors on the Accord can detect the speed of surrounding vehicles and adjust cruise settings so you can keep pace and focus on the drive.

Forward Collision Warning

Forward Collision Warning: Using those same radar sensors, forward collision warning monitors what’s in front of the Accord and issues audio and visual warnings if it senses the vehicle needs to slow or stop to avoid an accident.

Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: If the driver doesn’t respond to the forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking can apply the brakes to slow or stop the Accord and reduce the risk of a collision.

Road Departure

Road Departure Mitigation System: This Accord safety system watches the sides of the road and notices if the vehicle starts to leave the pavement, correcting the course to keep the vehicle on the road.

Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning: A front-mounted camera watches the lane markings and alerts you if it senses a drift from the center of the lane.

Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist System: If the Accord is still drifting after a lane departure warning, this system can adjust the torque and keep the vehicle centered.

Compare to Competitors

  • Toyota Camry: The Camry has been a longtime competitor to the Accord. While it might meet the Accord’s tech features, standards like automatic climate control still aren’t available, and massive upgrades are needed for features comparable to Honda Sensing.
  • Nissan Altima: For the full breakdown, read our 2016 Nissan Altima review, but the short version is that the only standard tech feature that stands out on the Altima is Bluetooth. Upgrades are required for comparable features to the Accord, and Honda Sensing–type safety features are found only on the highest trims.
  • Subaru Outback: This modern family wagon might appeal to some drivers, but when it comes to features, Honda leads again. Amenities like dual-zone automatic climate control and a stereo anti-theft system are standard on the Accord but are unavailable on the Outback, which also requires significant trim upgrades for accident prevention features.
