Safety Technology

The Accord’s technologically advanced amenities include cutting-edge safety and driver-assist features that go to work to help keep vehicle occupants safer when they’re out on the road.

Standard high-tech safety and driver-assist features found in each Accord model include:

  • Multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, which provides a clear view of what’s behind the Accord as drivers operate the car in reverse.
  • Brake assist, which supplies added braking power in emergency stopping situations, ensuring maximum stopping force and helping to shorten the braking distance.
  • SmartVent front side airbags, which use speed and seat sensors to adjust deployment for the passenger airbags or to shut them off completely, in accordance with the size of the passenger.

The Accord also includes the following available safety features among its offerings:

  • Collision mitigation braking system, which automatically applies the car’s brakes at full force when an impending collision is detected and the driver doesn’t respond quickly enough to warnings.
  • Honda LaneWatch, which comes standard in the Accord EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims. This feature employs a camera that is integrated into the passenger-side exterior mirror to give drivers live video feed of the right-hand lane, helping them more safely change lanes and make right-hand turns.
  • Adaptive cruise control, which automatically adjusts the car’s speed and helps maintain a safe following distance between the Accord and other vehicles.

For its outstanding performance in crash tests, the 2017 Accord has received a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.* For the 2016 model year, the Accord received a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety,** and though the 2017 model has not yet been tested by the IIHS, we’re confident the Accord will once again be favored when the 2017 rankings are announced.

Convenience-boosting Technology

Amenities found in the 2017 Accord are also tailored to bolster convenience and connectivity for drivers and passengers. Among them are the following features:

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which come standard in the Accord EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims. Drivers can easily connect their smartphones to the Accord’s touchscreen display and access features like text messaging, navigation, calling, music, and more while staying focused on the road. See the accompanying video for tips on using Apple CarPlay in your Accord.
  • Smart Entry (standard in the EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims), which can lock, unlock, start, and stop the Accord while the key remains in a pocket or purse.
  • Auto-on/off LED headlights (standard in the Touring trim), automatically switch from high beams to low beams when another car is approaching and also turn on and off automatically.
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control, which comes standard and automatically adjusts temperature and ventilation inside the Accord according to the user’s setting.
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror (standard in the EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims), which instantly dims when the high beams from another car hit the mirror.
  • HomeLink Remote System (standard in the EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims), which syncs up with remote-controlled devices in and around the car owner’s home.

Entertainment Technology

To further boost the in-vehicle experience, the Accord offers a variety of the latest entertainment features to make driving more pleasurable, including:

  • Three audio system options and attendant standard features that include Pandora capability, MP3 and Windows Media Audio playback capability, a USB audio interface, speed-sensitive volume control, and a radio data system. SiriusXM Radio additionally comes standard in the EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims.

  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, which is available in the EX-L and EX-L V-6 models and comes standard in the Touring trim. This system includes features like voice recognition, Honda HD Digital Traffic, and Song by Voice.

Competitor Comparison

In comparing the Accord to some of its leading competitors, such as the 2016 Toyota Camry, 2016 Kia Optima, and 2016 Ford Fusion, the Accord offers a variety of technology features that these rival vehicles do not have.

The Accord offers a remote vehicle starting system in four of its trim levels, while none of the Camry or Optima models feature remote vehicle start. The Accord also offers two-driver seat memory in the EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring trims, while none of the Camry models have driver’s seat memory settings. The Accord additionally offers standard speed-sensitive windshield wipers and available rain-sensing windshield wipers—neither of which is found in the Camry or Optima.

Additionally, while auto-on/off headlights and dual-zone automatic air-conditioning come standard in the Accord, the Optima only offers these as extra-cost upgrades.

The Ford Fusion does not offer a collision mitigation braking system like the Accord does, nor does the Fusion include automatic climate control as a standard feature as the Accord models do.
