The Honda Accord has always been renowned for its quality, reliability, and excellent value for money. However, with its stunning styling, the sensational 2024 Honda Accord will seriously turn heads around Martinsville, Danville, Rocky Mount, and Greensboro when people see it. Of course, there’s plenty more to like about this eleventh-generation than just how it looks, but a gorgeous exterior is always a good place to start.
Even though the 2024 Honda Accord is the second year of a new generation, the designers still stay true to what has made the Accord such a legend over the last few decades. The exterior styling always appears fresh and new, but it’s still recognizable as an Accord. The current Accord also boasts the usual impressive list of standard safety features, efficient powertrains, a spacious and high-quality cabin, and lots of the latest technology, including a new interface layout and audio system.
The 2024 Accord is available in six trim levels, the majority of which are hybrids. The lineup starts with the LX and EX trim levels with a conventional gas powertrain, while the hybrids come in Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, and top-of-the-line Touring trim levels.
The standard gas engine for the 2024 Honda Accord is a 1.5-liter turbo-four that develops 192 horsepower and 192 lb.-ft. of torque, which gets to the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Although the base engine is essentially a carryover from the previous generation, enhancements to the direct-injection system, crankshaft, and CVT result in reduced engine noise, reduced emissions, and improved performance.
However, most retail shoppers are likely to opt for the hybrid powertrain, and not just for its impressive fuel economy. The hybrid versions of the new Accord also offer more power and greater performance, with a healthy 204 horsepower and 247 lb.-ft. of torque available. The Accord Hybrid’s twin motors are now mounted side-by-side, allowing a larger propulsion motor to be employed and deliver that extra torque. The newly refined hybrid system is now more responsive to different driving conditions and can be more refined than its predecessor when driving at highway speeds.
The impressive standard features superbly illustrate the excellent value for money of the new Accord. Every model gets an enhanced version of the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies. The system in the 2024 Accord includes a new camera featuring a wider 90-degree field of view and wide-angle radar with a 120-degree field of view. The new wider angle enhances the performance of the collision prevention systems. They are now better at distinguishing between vehicles, pedestrians, white lines, curbs, cyclists, motorcycles, and road signs.
Every model also features a 10.2-inch Driver Information Interface Screen in place of traditional analog dials, which offers unique display functions depending on the powertrain. A new 7.0-inch touchscreen is standard with LX and EX trim levels. However, hybrid trim levels get upgraded to a sensational 12.3-inch unit with a physical volume knob, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and a newly-simplified user-friendly navigation structure with fewer menus.
The latest generation of a popular and enduring model will always draw comparisons with illustrious predecessors, and the 2024 Honda Accord is no exception.
