The Honda Accord has been one of the most popular and reliable cars on the market for decades. And the 2016 model has been greatly improved throughout. All models now have LED taillights, revised suspension tuning, and a brand new interior trim. And models EX and above also feature a 7-inch touchscreen that can interface with either Apple or Android devices and keep you connected while you’re on the go. What else does the 2016 Honda Accord have to offer? Let’s take a look.
The 2016 Accord has some great features for audio lovers. For example, how often do you find yourself cranking the volume on the car’s sound system because you’re on the freeway, and traffic noise is overpowering the songs? Then, once you get off the freeway, suddenly the volume is too loud, and you nearly burst your eardrums. Well, the 2016 Accord comes with speed-sensitive volume control, which adjusts the volume automatically based on how fast you’re travelling, to compensate for road noise. As mentioned, the new Accord also comes with a touchscreen that interfaces with either Apple or Android devices. For Apple, this means Apple CarPlay, whereas Android devices use Android Auto. Both features allow you to connect your smartphone to your car, and offer you a short range of accessible features, such as phone, music, GPS, and more, all on an easily navigable touchscreen display, that you can use without being distracted from the road. The Accord can also be used for cargo. The 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback allows you to fold down one seat to make room for longer objects that otherwise wouldn’t fit in the trunk (such as lumber), while still leaving room for an extra backseat passenger.
The 2016 Honda Accord models EX and above feature a remote engine start, which allows you to start the car from your key remote as you’re getting in, saving time and allowing you to leave as soon as you’re ready. The car also features brand new styling in both the front and back, including beautifully redesigned taillights, along with all new LED fog lights, to help you when visibility is low.
The 2016 Honda Accord is designed from top to bottom to keep you safe. For one thing, it has an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. This means that it’s designed to protect your passengers in the event of a crash by distributing the crash energy more evenly throughout the vehicle. But of course, it’s better simply to stay out of a crash entirely. That’s why the Accord features a multi-angle rearview camera to supplement the rearview mirror. It provides you with a more comprehensive view of what’s behind you (from normal, top-down and wide angles) allowing you to stay on your toes and avoid a collision. The 2016 Accord also features a number of sensors to help keep you aware of what’s on the road ahead of you. There’s a Road Departure Mitigation System, which detects when you’re about to drift out of your lane (or off the road entirely) and alerts you. Likewise the forward collision warning can tell if you’re about to collide with the vehicle (or other object) directly ahead of you, and provides an alert. And the Tire Pressure Monitoring System can tell you if any of your tires needs air, so that you can address the issue before it causes problems. The 2016 Honda Accord is a beautiful, practical, and safe vehicle that will serve any driver in good stead for years to come.
