2020 Honda Accord Technology Features
The Honda Accord has always been a dependable car for drivers around the Miami, Doral, and Hialeah, FL, area, thanks to impressive fuel efficiency and a cozy interior. This year, it’s taking to the streets in a new way. Not only is it completely redesigned, but it’s also been re-engineered with plenty of technologies to help keep you safe, entertained, and connected.
But even with all these advanced tech features in place, is this sedan right for you? Our team at Braman Honda will help answer that question with this 2020 Honda Accord technology features review. We’ll go over the state-of-the-art technologies that can be found throughout the Honda Accord model’s six trim levels—LX, Hybrid, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring—to help you make an informed decision on the right blend of features for your specific lifestyle needs.
Read all about them below, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions along the way.
Technology to Help Keep You Safe in the Accord
The 2020 Honda Accord is built with a strong structural body and advanced airbag system in case an accident was to ever occur. However, to help prevent one from happening in the first place, this sedan comes with Honda Sensing® in every trim level.
Honda Sensing® is an intelligent suite of driver-assisting features that helps you stay aware of what’s going on around you when you’re driving. Some of the safety options included in this suite are:
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): If you begin drifting from your lane without using a turn signal, LKAS will gently adjust your steering to get you back to the center of your lane.
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): CMBS™ can detect when a collision with the vehicle in front of you is imminent and will help apply the brakes.
- Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR): TSR uses a small camera to recognize and help notify you of Speed Limit signs, Do Not Enter signs, Yield signs, and Stop signs, with a visual icon.
- Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): Warns if you may be about to leave the road entirely, helping you stay firmly on track.
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow: Maintains a preset following speed and distance between you and the car ahead, helping you seamlessly stay with the flow of traffic.
With these baseline features by your side, highway driving will be secure and more enjoyable. For even greater protection, opt for the Blind Spot Information System (BSI) with Cross Traffic Monitor. This feature lets you know when another car has entered your side blind zones, so you can know when it’s safe to leave your lane.
When reversing out of a busy parking spot, the Cross Traffic Monitor will let you know about approaching traffic, so you can be on your way safely.
2020 Accord: Tech to Keep You Connected & Entertained
The Accord has many features to make your drives around town all the more enjoyable. This vehicle comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen to see all your media options. That screen then gets upgraded to an 8-inch Display Audio with a high-resolution electrostatic touchscreen, beginning in the Sport trim.
If you wish to access your music from your compatible device, you can use the standard Bluetooth® streaming audio feature. And to make phone calls and send text messages hands-free, use the standard Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and SMS text message function.
For even more connectivity, there’s Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, available on the 2020 Honda Accord Sport through Touring trims. With these features, you can connect your compatible smartphone to the vehicle to access your music playlist, get directions, listen to podcasts, and more. It mimics your phone on the display screen, so you can easily find all your favorite apps.
No matter what you decide to listen to, it’ll sound clear and refined thanks to an available premium audio system found on the EX-L and Touring trim levels. It places 10 speakers around the interior of your Accord to fully immerse you in quality sound for a more enjoyable commute.
Convenience Features in the 2020 Honda Accord
The 2020 Honda Accord also offers technologies to provide comfort and convenience to all who sit inside it. There’s the standard dual-zone climate control system that lets the driver and front-seat passenger set their own preferred temperatures to be as warm or as cool as they’d like.
There are also heated front seats that are available in the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, plus heated rear seats in the Touring trim, to stay nice and cozy on chillier days. When it’s particularly warm out, ventilated front seats in the Touring trim will help keep you nice and cool.
While these features will leave you feeling comfortable when you step inside, the convenience of the 2020 Accord actually begins before you even enter the vehicle. With the HondaLink® app in the Sport through Touring trims, you can stay connected and complete such tasks as turning on your engine with Remote Start, unlocking and locking your doors, and more, all from your smartphone.
After Remote Start has you on the open road, an available Head-Up Display will provide you with all the driving information you need right in your line of view. By projecting stats like driving speed and equipped safety warnings right on your windshield, you’ll have a more alerted drive no matter where the road takes you.
