- Pricing has officially been released for the refreshed 2016 Honda Accord
- Base-level LX models keep last year’s prices, while other trims see increases
- The updated 2016 Accord goes on sale later this month
The Honda Accord has been refreshed for the 2016 model year in order to remain competitive in the crowded midsize sedan segment, and now, pricing for the updated 2016 Accord has been officially released.
According to Honda, the price for the base-level Accord LX will stay the same at $22,925 including destination, despite several changes to the Accord, which include revised styling, suspension improvements and other tweaks.
Other Accord models see slight price increases for the 2016 model year. The midlevel Accord Sport, for instance, jumps to $24,985 with shipping from last year’s base price of $24,685. The Accord EX adds $450 to the base price to start at $26,300 with shipping, while the EX-L adds $150 to its bottom line. Finally, the range-topping Accord Touring now starts at $35,400 with shipping, compared to last year’s $34,450, an increase of nearly $1,000. Accord Coupe models see similar price increases.
The reason for the Touring’s bigger price jump relates to a host of newly standard safety technology, including lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with automatic braking and lane-departure warning, all of which are standard on the Touring and optional on other models.
Other changes to the 2016 Accord include updated styling, new interior trim, revised suspension and new wheel designs. Accord EX models also come newly standard with a remote starter, while Honda has added a new Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.
According to Honda, the 2016 Accord will go on sale later this month.
What it means to you: Despite a host of improvements, the 2016 Honda Accord sees only minor price increases for the latest model year.
