The 2015 Honda Accord Changes: What’s New?
The 2015 Honda Accord has been available at Tri-State Honda Dealers for a few months now, and the most common question we get asked is “what changes make the 2015 Honda Accord better than last year?” And the truth is that it’s a tough question to answer, because the 2014 Accord was one of the best versions of the car that we can remember, and we’re kind of glad that Honda only made a few minor updates. After all, why try to fix something that’s working incredibly well already?
But we have a quick look at the couple of updates that did hit the Accord for the new model year, for those of you curious.
A Few Small Updates
The Accord has been around for decades, and in this, the third model year of the ninth-generation Accord, Honda has things down to an art. These are the tweaks they made to the 2015 Accord to help give it an even greater edge over competing models:
- A HomeLink remote is now standard on every EX-L model (previously the HomeLink remote was only on EX-L V6 and higher trims).
- The 2015 Accord EX-L Coupe now comes with an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
- The 2015 Accord EX Coupe features the Honda LaneWatch blind spot camera as a standard feature.
Those are all the changes for 2015. We told you it was a small list!
Rest assured, Honda didn’t mess with any of the standard features that have been making the Accord one of the most popular vehicles in its class; you can still find Bluetooth phone and audio, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, rearview camera, Pandora internet radio, SMS texting, and more on every new Accord.
And the 2015 Accord LX is just as fuel-efficient as last year’s model, with CVT-equipped versions earning an EPA-estimated 36 highway and 27 city mpg.*
