New Honda Accord Wins KBB "Best Auto Tech" Award


The new 2018 Honda Accord has won Kelley Blue Book's 2018 "Best Auto Tech" Award* in the Mainstream Brand category. Michael Harley, group managing editor for Kelley Blue Book, provided some insight as to why this may be the case: "The fact that a family sedan...offers such a comprehensive suite of standard safety technology is impressive, considering that some manufacturers still require buyers to opt for pricey top-of-the-line trim levels to get those features, if they offer them at all"*.

Honda Accord Features and Technology

To Harley's point, the list of standard technology on any new tenth generation Accord is quite long. The list of available technology and infotainment options is ever longer.

You'll find many premium amenities and technological features, no matter which Accord trim you choose, but each one does have it's own unique benefits. Dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch infotainment display with Siri Eyes Free, and Honda Sensing® all can be found on the well-equipped entry-level Honda Accord LX model. The subsequent EX trim adds technologies such as blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert. Top-trim Honda Accord Touring sedans get a head-up display and 4G LTE hotspot, plus wireless mobile device charging.
