For 2021, Honda has given the Accord a restyled face, some performance tweaks, more standard equipment and better safety tech.   

Honda has upgraded its flagship hybrid sedan for 2021 by giving it a slightly updated look, better driving technology and more safety features. In terms of design, most of the changes have been made to the car's front. The face now looks a bit more elegant and less cluttered, courtesy of a wider, restyled chrome grille that flows into the headlamp design.

Altering the grille design has also allowed Honda to integrate the Honda Sensing system's radar unit more organically. The fog lamps have also been replaced with smaller, round units and the LED headlamps' functionality has also been improved. The alloy wheel design has also been changed completely.

Inside, Honda's 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system has been made standard across all trims of the Accord, along with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The front USB ports have been repositioned to the front of the centre console for easier access, while higher trims get additional twin USB ports for rear-seat passengers.

On the safety front, the upper trims benefit from a new Low-Speed Braking Control system and updated Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS). The latter two are a part of the Honda Sensing suite of safety features.

The engine line-up has been carried over from the outgoing generation. But the Engine Management Units (EMUs) for all engines have been retuned for better accelerator response. This means the Accord Hybrid continues to be powered the 2.0-litre inline-four i-VTEC Atkinson-cycle engine that develops 212bhp and 315Nm of torque.
