Spotlighting the 2021 Honda Accord

2021 Honda Accord | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

Commuting in California isn’t always easy — but the 2021 Honda Accord can help make it less stressful and more fun more fun. This midsize sedan combines style, fuel economy, and intelligent technologies to make it a well-rounded option in its segment and a solid choice for running errands around Vallejo.

The Honda Accord was redesigned for the 2021 model year, boasting a sportier style than ever before. This athletic look hints at the power it has under its hood. The Accord has three powertrain options to choose from. The first is a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which produces 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. This engine gets an EPA-estimated fuel-efficiency rating of 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway.*

For more power, opt for the 2.0-liter VTEC turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This option, which is available on the Sport trim and standard on the Touring, pumps out 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. It also boasts a fuel-efficiency rating of 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.*

When you want to save money on gas, though, consider the Accord Hybrid. This hybrid powertrain has a total system output of 212 horsepower and has a fuel-efficiency rating of 48 mpg in city and 48 mpg on the highway.*

Inside, the Accord fits up to five passengers and offers up to 40.4 inches of legroom in the back, allowing your passengers to stretch out. It also comes standard with family-friendly Rear Seat Reminder, which reminds you to check the back seat when you exit the car. Standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Apple™ smartphone integration will keep you connected on the go, while the Honda Sensing® suite of safety technologies will allow you to feel confident behind the wheel.

Honda Sensing® Elite Introduces Automated Driving Capabilities

Honda Sensing® Elite | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

Honda is taking a step into the future with its all-new Honda Sensing® Elite system. This system, which is now available in Japan on the Honda Legend EX, is an all-new suite of driver-assist and safety technologies that offers Level 3 automated driving capability as SAE International standards define it.

What does Level 3 automated driving mean, though? This type of automation is the first level that won’t require you to constantly monitor your surroundings while on the go. This means that this technology will let you sit back and relax on commutes through Vallejo or road trips through California once it makes the leap stateside.

That doesn’t mean you get to completely ignore the driving experience, though. Level 3 automation will still require you to be prepared to intervene at any given moment, specifically when the car encounters a situation that it can’t handle alone.

In Japan, this means that the Honda Sensing® Elite system will help the Legend EX take on the road ahead autonomously. It will steer, accelerate, and brake to pass slower cars on the highway and comes with a range of features, such as Traffic Jam Pilot, which helps you take on traffic, and Emergency Stop Assist feature that will pull the car over to the curb, stop it, and turn on the hazard lights if the driver is unresponsive.

While this technology isn’t available in the U.S. just yet, it could very well arrive soon as part of a new crop of tech-savvy Honda vehicles. Until then, come into Avery Greene Honda to check out what the current Honda Sensing® suite of technologies has to offer.
