Honda Accord Technology Features

  • 2017 Honda Accord

    The 2017 Honda Accord technology features help set it apart from the other cars available in Mid-Michigan, advancing connectivity and safety beyond competing sedans. The convenience and connectivity features of the Accord start with Bluetooth and an infotainment system and include a wide variety of upgrades while the safety tech includes a multi-angle rearview camera and offers the latest in Honda Sensing safety features.

Convenience and Connectivity

We know many drivers think connectivity when they hear “Honda Accord technology features,” and that’s definitely a big part of the picture with the Accord. If you’re more curious about the safety, we’ll get to that in just a minute. You’ll find the following standard and available features on the 2017 Accord (coupe and sedan):

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: Sync your smartphone for hands-free phone calls and streaming audio with the standard Bluetooth HandsFreeLink system. Pair it once and the Accord will connect automatically.
  • Honda i-MID: An 8-inch screen with 800×400 WVGA resolution puts vehicle information and entertainment front and center. Honda’s intuitive i-MID is an exclusive feature that drivers have loved since it debuted on the 2013 model.
  • Display Audio Touchscreen: Step up the entertainment and connectivity in the car with the available 7-inch touchscreen. The Display Audio screen brings advanced connectivity software with it in the form of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay: Check out our video to see how easy it is to set up CarPlay (Android Auto is just as easy). These systems let your phone and car speak the same language and bring familiar phone apps right to the dash of your vehicle.
  • HondaLink: This Honda-exclusive telematics system takes control of your car to a new level with a smartphone app that makes it easy to schedule maintenance and stream your favorite audio (including a reading of your social media).
  • Navigation: The available satellite-linked navigation of the Accord not only routes you where you need to go, it works hard to get you there as quickly as possible, routing around traffic. Simple voice controls and convenient points of interest give this system an advantage over the app on your phone, too.

Advanced Safety

We’re proud of the advances Honda has made in connectivity, but at the end of the day, we think the most important updates to the Honda Accord technology features fall under safety. In addition to a standard rearview camera system with three viewing angles, Honda has the Honda Sensing safety system available at each trim level, making it one of the safest cars of 2016.

Honda Sensing includes:


Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: This safety feature watches the speeds of cars around you and adjusts your cruising speed to keep pace.

Forward Collision Warning

Forward Collision Warning: The radar systems that track the speed of surrounding vehicles for adapt=”ive cruise control can also indicate when you might collide with another car, leading this feature to issue you a collision warning.

Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: If the Accord notices that the car is still heading toward a collision, it can apply the brakes on its own, slowing or stopping the vehicle to mitigate any damage.

Road Departure

Road Departure Mitigation System: This advanced feature is able to track the signs and markers on the side of the road and alert the driver (and even correct the vehicle’s course) if it senses you’re leaving the road.

Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning: A front-mounted camera monitors lane markings and issues audio and visual warnings if it senses you drifting from the center of your lane.

Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist System: This safety feature can actually keep your vehicle centered in the lane if it detects a drift and notices no response to the lane departure warning.

How Does the Competition Stand Up?

  • Toyota Camry: See our full 2016 Toyota Camry Review for the details, but the short of it is that while the Camry might meet Honda’s connectivity features, it doesn’t have Honda Sensing type features until the top trims.
  • Ford Fusion: If you’ve read our Fusion review, you know that it already lags behind on power and fuel economy, so having connectivity on par with the Accord still puts it at a loss. The Fusion also lacks features like Honda Sensing until you approach the Titanium trim.
  • Chrysler 200: In revising the 200, Chrysler managed to fix some of its interesting design elements, but the base model is lacking features like a rearview camera and alloy wheels, let alone Honda’s connectivity features or Honda Sensing–like safety tech.
