In the world of passenger sedans, the Honda Accord has been a consistent leader. However, the 2021 edition offers even more to love than ever before. Ask any Atlanta Honda Accord dealer, and they’d share just how exciting the 2021 edition is. From its great fuel economy to its amazing interior comfort, there’s so much for every driver to enjoy.

Historically, Accords have been the go-to vehicle for those looking for a well-rounded sedan at a great price. Their balanced features are unlikely to turn off any buyers, while their many benefits are sure to attract a wide audience. The results are clear, too: the Honda Accord is consistently one of the most popular sedans in America. If the reviews and outstanding features in the 2021 edition are any indications, this popularity is likely to continue. Here are the top 10 reasons why the 2021 Honda Accord isn’t just a great sedan but an undeniable industry leader in a crowded market.

#1 – Highly Affordable

The all-new Honda Accord starts at a shockingly low price of $24,970.1 This MSRP (manufacturer-suggested retail price) contends with the latest offerings from every worldwide auto brand. But unlike its competitors, the Accord certainly isn’t a cheap car; rather, it offers outstanding value thanks to its generous features, outstanding performance, and elegant styling inside and out. Just about everyone will be shocked to learn how little you paid for your new Accord. While some auto brands may offer too little for the price tag, like Land Rover and Cadillac, Honda gives you more than you asked for.

#2 – Supreme Fuel Economy

Not only do you save on the price tag, you save every day that you drive your new Accord. The 2021 edition offers a whopping EPA-rated 48 miles per gallon city and highway thanks to the available Hybrid powertrain.2 Combining the best of an electric motor and traditional gasoline engine, the Hybrid Accord uses as little gas as possible without compromising performance. Save both time and money at the pump when you reduce fill-up trips, travel farther with your family without constantly checking the fuel level, and enjoy the sporty performance the Accord has to offer without worrying about wasting fuel.

#3 – Elegant Interior

The Accord has a refined interior that’s surprisingly elegant. Step inside the stylish cabin to enjoy a motif of sharp, angular, and modern lines, as well as a pared-down set of controls that are easy to use. The cabin is surprisingly roomy, too, seating up to five passengers comfortably so you can travel with the whole family. Upgrade to the higher trims for leather-trimmed seats, specially designed luxury trimmings, and heated and ventilated seat technology for all-season comfort. You can even get an impressive Head-Up Display that projects important vehicle and driving data on the lower part of the windshield.

#4 – Redesigned Exterior

No longer leaning on the expected, Honda redesigned the Accord’s exterior for the 2021 model year, giving it sleek, aerodynamic looks characterized by a sharp front grille, fashionable paint colors, and dynamic body lines. Honda vehicles have long offered eye-catching styling, and that trend continues with the latest Accord. Standard features like LED low-beam headlights, brilliant 17-inch alloy wheels, and a refined silhouette may mean your car is mistaken for high-end, imported luxury.

#5 – Thrilling Performance

The 2021 Honda Accord drives like a dream, which may shock those who think of Honda as building reliable family cars. While that reputation is certainly true, Honda has a long history with performance vehicles as well, and the new Accord lives up to it. Start with the base model’s turbocharged 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine, which does more with less engine bulk to produce quick and responsive performance.

Upgrade to the turbocharged 2.0-liter sport powertrain to get 252 horsepower and a smooth, 10-speed automatic transmission. Even the hybrid edition offers no less than 212 hp, giving you sporty performance and incredible fuel economy. All three versions have a sharp throttle response and lightweight steering that offers outstanding feedback. So while the 2021 Accord may look like a four-door sedan, it feels like a speedy muscle car when it hits the road.

#6 – Excellent Infotainment Offerings

Every edition of the 2021 Honda Accord comes with an intuitive and responsive 8.0-inch infotainment display. This is your gateway to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, which provide easy access to your contacts, music, podcasts, audiobooks, navigation, and more. The device sits comfortably on the center console and has a combination of touch activation and push buttons to suit any user. Its sleek, wide screen and high-resolution graphics are sure to impress. You can even upgrade from the base infotainment system for additional perks like built-in navigation software and a premium ten-speaker sound system.

#7 – More Interior Tech to Love

Don’t forget the other features that Honda has in store for the new Accord. The available head-up display, wireless phone charging, Wi-Fi hotspot, and compatibility with the HondaLink smartphone app keep you in total control, no matter where you are. One of the most popular new features is Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Look, which automatically responds to your key fob to lock or unlock the vehicle. There are so many features to love in the 2021 Accord that its sticker price may seem shockingly low. Better yet, the 2021 edition has impressive active safety features that safeguard your drive – more on that below.

#8 – Generous Base Model

The 2021 Accord doesn’t bait-and-switch you with an apparently low sticker price, only to hide its best features behind expensive packages and higher trims. Rather, Honda offers its popular sedan with an attractive base model that drives well, looks great, keeps you connected, and feels comfortable. While optional upgrades abound – and are affordable to boot – the base version comes with everything you need from dual-zone automatic climate control to the standard 8-inch infotainment screen.

#9 – Safety to Confide In

First-time drivers, families with children, and everyone in between will appreciate the 2021 Accord’s excellent safety technology. Just look at the Sensing suite, which includes innovative driver-assist features such as a Collision Mitigation Braking System and Adaptive Cruise Control standard on every trim. Meanwhile, upgradable features like parking sensors and a Blind Spot Information System enhance your driving experience and help protect your peace of mind.
