Honda Accord Technology Features

  • 2017 Honda Accord

    The 2017 Honda Accord technology features expand on the amenities that have been making this sedan a hit for years among our Wisconsin drivers. Convenience features like Bluetooth and navigation work alongside advanced safety features that are engineered to reduce the risk of accidents, and the result is a sedan that is one of the most technologically advanced cars on the road.

Convenience Features

Most drivers probably think of the convenience and connectivity amenities when they hear about the 2017 Honda Accord technology features. We’ll expand on that below with the available safety amenities, but for now, let’s focus on the features that keep you connected when you’re behind the wheel of a new Honda.

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: This standard Accord feature pairs your smartphone or other Bluetooth-compatible device with the vehicle to stream audio and make hands-free phone calls.
  • Honda i-MID: Each Accord includes Honda’s i-MID infotainment system with 8-inch 800×400 WVGA display, bringing relevant vehicle info and settings to your dash.
  • Display Audio Touchscreen: The Accord’s available 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen expands the connectivity options of the sedan and adds on advanced smartphone connectivity that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay: Watch our embedded video and see how easy it is to set up these advanced software systems, bringing familiar smartphone apps including mail, maps, social media, and more right to your in-dash touchscreen.
  • HondaLink: This exclusive telematics system gives the Accord owner another link to their car. Stream podcasts, music, and even social media feeds through the Accord’s stereo, and set up maintenance and service appointments with just a few taps.
  • Navigation: Honda’s navigation system not only takes you where you need to go, it works hard to send you there on the shortest route, avoiding heavy traffic along the way. The navigation system can even recommend points of interest for stops on a long road trip.

Safety Features

Convenience features are one part of the 2017 Honda Accord technology features, but we think that safety deserves just as much attention. In addition to a standard multi-angle rearview camera (which competitors like the 2016 Nissan Altima standard features lack), Honda has advanced driver assistance features that are designed to help you avoid an accident.

These Honda Sensing features are available as a package upgrade on any trim of the Accord and include:

 

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: This safety feature monitors the speed of vehicles around the Accord and adjusts cruising speed so that you can stay with the flow of traffic.

Forward Collision Warning

Forward Collision Warning: Radar sensors on the Accord can detect when it is approaching a car or object quickly and warn a driver of a potential collision.

Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: If the driver doesn’t respond to the forward collision warning, the collision mitigation system can apply the brakes automatically to slow or even stop the vehicle.

Road Departure

Road Departure Mitigation System: This safety feature monitors the markings on the road and can correct the course of the Accord if it looks like it’s going to leave the pavement.

Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning: This safety system watches the lane markings on the pavement and issues audio and visual warnings if the driver starts to drift from the center of the lane.

Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist System: If the Accord begins to drift and the driver doesn’t correct the course, this system can nudge the wheel to keep the vehicle centered in its lane.

Compare to Competitors

  • Toyota Camry: The Camry and the Accord have butted heads for years, and while Toyota has given their sedan more connectivity features, it’s still lacking in other amenities, like automatic climate control. It also doesn’t have an option comparable to Honda Sensing.
  • Nissan Altima: Nissan does give the Altima Bluetooth connectivity, but when it comes to a rearview camera or Honda Sensing–like features, drivers need to make significant upgrades.
  • Subaru Impreza: The peppy Impreza has some perks that other cars lack, but it still falls behind the Accord on comfort and convenience features. As far as advanced safety is concerned, amenities like those found in the Honda Sensing suite are only on high-end trims. Explore the other differences in our 2016 Subaru Impreza review.
