What's New in the 2020 Honda Accord?

The Accord Hybrid now makes an alert noise when running on just electricity. This is a feature that will soon be mandatory on all cars capable of running silently. Aside from that minor change, the Accord is unchanged for 2020. See the 2020 Honda Accord models for sale near you

Which Accord is the Best?

Even the cheapest base Accord comes with the full gamut of high-tech safety features and a generous amount of equipment. However, we think most people will find that the Sport and the EX go above and beyond to provide an impressively elevated experience for a midsize sedan. They're more expensive, sure, but we think your friends will think you spent considerably more. Obviously, if fuel economy is your top priority, then you can't go wrong with picking the Accord Hybrid to suit your taste and budget. Find a Honda Accord for sale

How Much Does a 2020 Honda Accord Cost?

The 2020 Honda Accord is available in LX, EX, Sport, EX-L and Touring trim levels. There's also a Hybrid version available in base Hybrid, EX, EX-L and Touring trims. For the EX, EX-L and Touring trims, the feature content is identical between the hybrid and non-hybrid versions.

Standard equipment on the Accord LX ($23,870) includes 17-in wheels, a rearview camera, forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic LED headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, a height-adjustable driver's seat, cloth upholstery, a full-width folding rear seatback, one USB port, and a 4-speaker sound system with a 7-in display, Bluetooth, a media player interface and Pandora streaming internet radio control.

The Accord Hybrid ($25,470) is the entry-level for the hybrid model, and it's a strong value proposition. Standard equipment is similar to the Accord LX and adds remote start, Smart Entry with walk-away auto lock, 60/40 split folding back seats and deceleration selectors.

The Sport ($26,530) adds 19-in wheels, bigger brakes, LED fog lights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an 8-way power driver's seat (including 4-way power lumbar), an upgraded USB port, an 8-speaker sound system and an 8-in Display Audio touchscreen interface that includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Honda Link in-car apps. Also, only the Sport can be equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission as a no-cost option.

The EX ($27,770) reverts to the LX's wheels and brakes and does not include the leather-wrapped wheel. Otherwise, it gets the same extra content as the Sport, plus blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems, passive entry and push-button start, heated mirrors, a sunroof, heated front seats, a 60/40 split folding rear seatback, a second USB port, satellite radio and HD Radio.

The EX-L ($30,270) adds leather upholstery, the leather-wrapped wheel, a 4-way power passenger seat, driver memory settings, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a 10-speaker sound system.

The Touring ($36,100) gets different 19-in wheels than the Sport, plus automatic wipers, bi-LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, ventilated front seats, rear heated seats, a head-up display, Wi-Fi, wireless smartphone charging, an enhanced instrument cluster and a navigation system (optional on the EX-L) integrated into the standard touchscreen.

The Sport and EX-L trims can be upgraded with a more powerful turbocharged engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which comes standard on the non-hybrid Touring model (see Fuel Economy section). It's a $2,000 upgrade for the EX-L and a $4,530 upgrade for the Sport model regardless of transmission. If you want the Accord Hybrid above the base trim, it's a $1,600 upgrade for the EX and EX-L models. The Accord Hybrid Touring also has the same starting price as the non-hybrid version.

2020 Honda Accord vs the competition

2020 Toyota Camry -- Also all-new in 2018, the Camry is available in a diverse variety of trim levels that cater to diverse buyer tastes. Its available engines are also fundamentally different. Like the Accord, there's a frugal and affordable hybrid option. Read how they compare in Accord vs Camry: Which is Better?

2020 Mazda6 -- The Mazda6 has quite a bit in common with the Accord in the sense that it's a surprisingly refined sedan that delivers a satisfying fun-to-drive factor. Long ignored, the Mazda6 nevertheless deserves a look. Read how they compare in Accord vs Mazda6: Which is Better?

2020 Nissan Altima -- The Nissan Altima was all-new for 2019 with a new look, a great, tech-rich interior, an interesting available VC-Turbo engine and available all-wheel drive, which is surprisingly rare in this segment. Read how they compare in Accord vs Altima: Which is Better?

Used Lexus ES -- If you're seeking a large, premium car that won't suffer from typical luxury car reliability issues, the ES (which is also available as a hybrid) is a great choice. It's far pricier when new, so checking out a used or certified pre-owned one is smart.
