The 2017 Honda Accord, available in the sporty coupe or stately 4-door sedan models, is an industry favorite for a reason. Beautiful inside and out, with a series of safety options that makes for a confident driver, the Accord is a sleek, stately option for nearly any driver looking for both reliability with a serious side of style.
The Accord, after its redesign in 2016, boasted some pretty impressive features, and its style is certainly one of them. The 2017 model does not disappoint in this area either. The sporty coupe, with futuristic curves and impressive angles, looks like the sports car you might want on the outside and on the inside. An interior that looks more like a cockpit offers drivers the ride they want, without the price tag of a traditional sports car model. The four-door version of the Accord is no slouch in design either, with an exterior design that’s perhaps a bit more stately and luxurious than the coupe but no less beautiful and a roomy interior that can fit five tall passengers easily. The beautiful design sets Accord apart, bringing the luxury without draining your budget.
Incredible design combines with an impressive commitment to safety to win over the most sensible of style lovers. The overhauled 2016 Honda Accord achieved five star safety ratings in front, side, and rollover crashes, and the 2017 uses the same body style and engineering. From the ground up, Honda focuses on creating a safer vehicle; advanced compatibility engineering (or ACE) uses a combination of front frame designs to distribute the impact from frontal collisions to better protect everyone involved. Add to this the standard ABS, variable assisted steering, a multi-angle rearview with dynamic guidelines, and side and front airbags, along with the available options associated with Honda Sensing (swerve warnings, crash warnings, and collision mitigation braking among other things), and you drive not only with some swagger but with a great deal of confidence as well.
Design and safety are fantastic, but so are the everyday conveniences that the 2017 Accord offers that make your driving life so much easier. Honda put a lot of thought into driver convenience when they added features like multiple 12-volt charging ports near the driver’s seat, and a remote trunk release. When you’re a tech savvy driver or a parent who relies on handheld devices for family entertainment on the road, those extra ports can make all the difference in your driving experience. The Accord is thoughtfully designed, with plenty of storage and easy-to-access controls on the steering wheel and power doors and windows…oh my! So many things that really matter in the day-to-day world-including a pretty impressive 30 mpg fuel efficiency average. The Accord makes driving a genuine pleasure, from top to bottom.
One of those pleasures is a pretty stellar entertainment system. You’ll find a 6-speaker stereo in the coupe and a 4-speaker version in the sedan, but both versions of the Accord have Bluetooth connectivity, text message and Pandora capability, as well as MP3/CD/AM/FM features. But the Accord didn’t stop there-with both active noise cancellation and speed sensitive volume control, your audiobook or streaming podcast doesn’t have to compete with road noise.
