2024 Honda Accord – The 2023 model of the Accord series has left a good impression among Honda's sedan lovers. Then, in early 2023, Honda announced to release a new model for this series. The 2024 honda accord will arrive on the market soon. What can we get from this new model? What to expect from the new Accord? This review will help you to understand more about this new sedan.
2024 Honda Accord Design and Appearance
We have not acquired official images of the new 2024 Accord model. The spy photo that captured the car being tested in camouflage paint also didn't help much to see the changes available on this new model. So, we can only compare and make estimations based on the previous model, the 2023 Honda Accord.
The 2023 Honda Accord was one of the latest redesigned models by Honda in this series. Therefore, we expect that the new Accord won't be that different than the 2023 model. It features a simple design with an elegant/premium vibe.
The front side of the current Accord features a pair of slim-style headlights. The slim-style headlights create a futuristic vibe on its front side. Then, Honda also uses a rectangular-type grille. Paired with smooth edges, plus a much better and neater front air intake hole at the bottom of the front bumper, you get a cool sedan face that stands out among the crowd.
The rear end also is not that different. The new 2024 Accord will still keep the unique a distinguished rear design from the previous model. One of them is the more refined roofline. The new model will have a better rake design than the previous model. Then, the wrap-around taillights style with a horizontal bar that connects the left and right sides also adds more artistic value to the rear.
As for the rear bumper, the new model will use the square-type rear bumper. It also placed a bit juts out, which gives this model another dimension on its length. We can even say that the new Accord will be the longest car in the Accord series.
This new series also use 19-inch wheels. From our source, we can say that this wheel provides a wonderful riding experience. It absorbs bumps well. Therefore, it feels much more comfortable. Also, we expect different wheel sizes for each trim that this car will have. We believe one of them will have smaller wheels, similar to the EX-L trim of the previous Accord.
Even though we said Honda will not bring any major changes to the 2024 model, we have no official information from this car manufacturer yet. Therefore, we might get a beautiful surprise when the release date is coming closer.
2024 Honda Accord Interior
Simplicity is the correct way to express what the inside of the new Accord looks like. It is similar to the previous model, where Honda doesn't add too many things inside. It is simple and you can't see too many buttons and knobs. You can enter and enjoy your trip inside.
Thanks to this simplicity, you have no problem knowing how to use everything inside this car. This factor might be the one that Honda will use to attract customers to buy this new model. Even though it is a simple interior, Honda did a great job on create a sleek and elegant look for this part. Therefore, you can feel a valuable experience when you enter this car.
Speaking about entering this car, we also see that the new Accord will have a better door design. It provides a bigger opening, so any passenger can get in and out much easier regardless of their body size. Furthermore, this new model also has more space for providing comfortable legroom. It helps you relax on a long trip that takes hours.
What we like the most is the driver view design. It almost has no blind spots. The thin windshield pillars paired with a big-sized rear window provide a better view to see distances and wider angles. And, we also see the gauge screen easily thanks to its better placement.
The noise protection design is also something that we want to highlight in this review. Honda has created a unique interior design, where you can keep the noise from the engine, low and almost unnoticeable. Furthermore, as a hybrid vehicle, it becomes even quieter when you drive in electric mode. This better noise protection feature gives you more comfort when riding this vehicle.
The driver seat has enough padding for the driver. It feels comfortable when you have to sit behind the wheels for an hour's trip. Moreover, the driver seat is also adjustable. You can find the setting you like to ensure more comfort you feel on this car. Furthermore, the climate system also works perfectly well to adjust the perfect temperature inside the car.
It is not only comfortable. Honda also provides more space to carry your belonging. The cargo area in this sedan is 16.7 cubic feet wide. That amount of space is enough to carry a whole golf bag without problems.
You also can find a center console area that has more space to keep your stuff. Put your keys, Smartphone, or any device in it when you are on a trip. Plus, in every seating area, you can find many cup holders. They fit large-sized water bottles. The rear seat rows have LATCH points. You can easily find it and use it when you travel with your kids.
2024 Honda Accord Features
How about its features and infotainment system? Honda has not revealed its full features. But, we get some of the features from other sources and they are pretty much standard features on a high-class sedan.
Starting from the touchscreen display, the new 2024 Accord will have a 12.3-inch display. You can operate various features from this screen.
The 2024 Honda Accord also has a standard connectivity feature. For example, you can pair it with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can activate them through the touchscreen display. Furthermore, Honda also provides Google Voice Assistance and Services integration, if you prefer this system. However, this feature is only available in the Touring trim. Also, you can get another optional feature, which is Bose Audio System and Google Assistant on the Sport-L trim.
As for the driving assistant and safety feature, Honda adds its standard feature, the Honda Sensing Suite. This driving aids feature work wonderfully to assist you in various situation on the road. It has a lane-keeping system, adaptive cruise control, and many more. Best of all, you can activate all those features with just one button. It seems that Honda also brings the simple concept of its interior design to the system of the 2024 honda accord.
2024 Honda Accord Specifications and Performance
As mentioned before, the 2024 model uses a hybrid powertrain. It comes with a combination of the 2.0-liter inline-four engine and a pair of electric motors. The output is also quite satisfying, which is 204 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque. The hybrid model will most likely have sport drive mode, similar to what you can find on the 2023 model.
According to the test result, the hybrid version can run from 0-60 mph in just 7 seconds. This result is one of the fastest midsize hybrid sedans from Honda. It uses automatic transmission, however, we found something unique about this transmission system. Honda programmed the transmission to adjust the RPM similar to what you can find on traditional auto transmission.
The gas model will use a different powertrain. Honda uses a 1.5-liter turbo-four engine for this model and CVT automatic transmission. The power output will most likely be the same as the current Accord model. So, you can expect 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque from this engine.
Unfortunately, the new Accord will only have FWD (Front Wheel Drive) drivetrain. We have no information if Honda will release the AWD (All Wheels Drive) model. But, we still have enough time to wait until its release to get more information about this drivetrain option. Let's hope Honda will announce this model soon.
How about its fuel economy? According to EPA estimation, the new Accord has 32 mpg fuel economy for the gas engine model. As for its hybrid model, its fuel economy is 48 mpg. This number is not that high for a midsize sedan. However, we think it is quite efficient and enough for your daily commuting needs.
The 2024 Honda Accord has not completed the crash-testing test to get NHTSA's good rating and Top Safety Pick's positive rating from IIHS. The test includes various situations that require the usage of this model's safety features, such as automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, active lane control, and adaptive cruise control. But, we believe Honda will announce the test result as it is close to its release date.
2024 Honda Accord Trim Levels
Honda will launch six trim levels for The 2024 Honda Accord model. They are LX, EX, Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, and Touring trim levels. The LX and EX trim levels will use the gas engine. As for the other trim levels, they will use a hybrid powertrain. For more detailed information, below we have the specifications for each trim level.
LX Trim Level
It uses a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with 17-inch wheels. As for its feature, it has the standard Accord feature, including the Honda Sensing suite safety feature. The infotainment system is USB-C ports, a four-speaker, a 7-inch center touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible, and many more. It provides a comfortable ride with complete features that will assist you during a trip.
EX Trim Level
It has similar features and specifications as the LX model. However, it has extra features you can't find on the first model, such as heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver seat, climate control with dual zone function, an eight-speaker audio system, and a sunroof with one-touch operation.
Sport Trim Level
The Sport model uses a hybrid powertrain. Its wheels are bigger than the previous two, which are 19-inch wheels. It also has a similar feature as the first two, however, it doesn't have heated front seats. The control panel is available in its 12.3-inch touchscreen at the center of the dashboard. The steering wheel has a leather cover, which feels more comfortable to hold.
EX-L Trim Level
The EX-L model is an improvement of the Sport trim level. The difference is it uses 17-inch wheels. However, it has much better features than the Sport trim level, such as heated front seats, leather seat surface, parking sensors, memory setting for the driver's seat, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and power-adjustable front passenger seat. It is clear to us that Honda focuses on comfort in this model.
Sport-L Trim Level
The Sport-L trim level is practically a copy of EX-L, in terms of its specifications and feature. Honda only changes the wheel with 19-inch wheels. Also, they remove the auto-dimming rearview mirror and the parking sensors.
Touring Trim Level
The Touring variant is simply the best version of the new 2024 Accord model. It has a much better set of features than the other trim levels. For example, it uses 19-inch wheels, a parking sensor, a Google assistance system, ventilated front seats, a wireless charging pad for a Smartphone, 12-speaker Bose Audio System, heated rear seats, auto-dimming rearview mirror, rain-sensing wipers, also head-up display feature. Because of that, we expect this trim level will have the highest price compared to others.
Price and Release Date
Honda has not announced the price for this new model. But, we can expect the starting price at $30,000 for the gas engine model and $33,000 for the hybrid powertrain. The expensive one, the Touring model, will most like be available starting from around $40,000. As for its release date, Honda also hasn't announced it.
