New Honda 2020 Honda Accord for Sale in West Warwick, RI
Honda gets things so right with the Accord year after year that many people consider it the standard for all midsized sedans. To that end, it’s not surprising that very little has changed this year – as the saying goes, “If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.” As expected, the 2020 Accord comes with a great package of standard safety features, an efficient and powerful turbo engine, and a cutting-edge cabin with plenty of multimedia technology to keep the occupants connected, informed, and entertained.
The Accord’s 2020 lineup offers five trim levels: the LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring. The LX trim starts off with some great features, including 17-inch alloy wheels, the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist technologies, push-to-start ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and streaming audio, and a 16-watt audio system with four speakers. The Sport trim adds 19-inch machine-finished alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, sport pedals, a 12-way power adjustable driver’s seat, chrome exhaust finishers, LED fog lights, a body-colored spoiler, and some great tech features like a larger (8-inch) touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HondaLink, and a 180-watt audio system with eight speakers. Next, the EX gets a moonroof, blind spot information system, smart entry with walk-away auto lock, heated front seats, power exterior mirrors, SiriusXM satellite radio, and HD Radio. The EX-L adds leather-trimmed seats, a 450-watt premium audio system with ten speakers and a subwoofer, an automatic-dimming rearview mirror, and the HomeLink Remote system. At the top, the Touring trim comes standard with ventilated seats, a wireless phone charger, Honda satellite-linked navigation with voice recognition and Honda HD digital traffic, Wi-Fi-hotspot capability, auto-on/off LED headlights, body-colored parking sensors, and side mirrors with reverse gear tilt-down.
Mechanical Features and Fuel Economy
The first four Accord trims come standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine (192 horsepower and 192 lb.-ft. of torque) paired with a CVT, except for the Sport, which comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission. The alternative engine, which is standard on the Touring and available on the Sport and EX-L, is a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that puts out 252 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. The Touring trim gets a 10-speed automatic transmission, while the EX-L and Sport get a CVT. When it comes to fuel economy, the 1.5-liter engines with the CVT get 30 mpg city and 38 mpg highway. The other powertrain options have slightly lower fuel economy figures.
Advanced Safety Features
All Accord trims come standard with Honda’s advanced package of driver-assist features, known as Honda Sensing. Some of these active safety technologies include collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane , and a traffic sign recognition system. Other standard safety features include a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, brake assist, auto high-beam headlights, and vehicle stability assist with traction control.
