Honda showed off its refreshed 2016 Accord this week at its new Silicon Valley R&D facility that will be working on advancing connected mobility. The new Accord features fresh styling and more technology than ever with its new Display Audio touchscreen interface. The 2016 Honda Accord will also be one of the first vehicles to feature both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Other new features include heated rear seats, front and rear parking sensors, HD Radio and a comprehensive suite of safety and driver-assist technologies. The goal of Honda engineers was to make the Accord more intelligently integrated with today’s technology, and to allow customers to access connected features more easily.
The Accord’s new styling is sportier and more sophisticated, with an intricately structured bumper fascia, new LED fog lights, new aluminum hood, bright front grille and restyled LED taillights and rear bumper. All trim levels get restyled wheels, with Sport and Touring trims receiving larger 19-inch wheels on both sedan and coupe models.
All new Accords can also now be equipped with Honda Sensing, a suite of advanced safety technology including a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and more. Every 2016 Accord will also have a standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and Expanded View Driver’s Mirror for added safety.
EX and above trim levels will be getting a 7-inch touchscreen with the ability to use either Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, depending on the user’s smartphone. With these systems, owners can access popular apps like Messages, Maps, Music, Google Now and supported third party apps like Pandora, iHeartRadio and Spotify.
