Honda Accord Stays True to Tradition for a New 2019 Model Year

The latest mid-size car will be arriving at Honda dealerships in Torrington and indeed throughout northwest Connecticut during November, with 2019 marking the tenth generation for a sedan more commuters, road-trippers, and long-distance travelers than ever have come to love. The big question on everyone's minds: what can we expect under the hood and in-cabin?

For one, the hallmark lineup of three available powertrains, depending on model. One, a turbocharged 1.5-liter, in-line four-cylinder, ready to put out 192 horsepower at 192 pound-feet of torque -- ratings that make 2019 Accord a standout in the class. Another, an optional 252-horsepower 2.0T VTEC Turbo®, the powerful performer in the group, capable of 273 pound-feet. The last, a two-motor hybrid system, the mainstay of 2019 Accord Hybrid, pairing a 2.0-liter i-VTEC® Atkinson-cycle gas engine and an electric motor. It can shell out a workhorse 232 pound-feet or torque nearly instantly, driving a spirited 212 horsepower.

Of course, you'll have your choice of transmissions, too, ranging from an engaging 6-speed manual to a CVT or a 10-speed auto, the last a first in the segment and capable of some of the smoothest shifts around. But it's also in its dedication to safety that a Honda mid-size sedan shines, and its latest is no different.

For instance, the new Accord features an ultra-durable Advanced Compatibility Engineering&#trade; (ACE&#trade;) body structure, home to the proprietary Honda Sensing® driver-assistance suite -- a standard across the line. Plus, options like a blind spot information system, driver attention monitor, and more offer situational awareness while helping keep you alert. Also keeping pace for 2019 is the availability of HondaLink&#trade; telematics, which makes possible remote locking and unlocking, automatic emergency calls, tracking your Accord if its stolen, automatic collision notification, and enhanced roadside assistance access.

Forward-thinking tech commitments will be the order of the day as well. The car's set to feature, depending on trim, a 7-inch digital cluster and 6-inch head up display for metrics at a glance, an 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone support, available 4G LTE in-car Wi-Fi, and even wireless device charging to keep your devices ready to head out on the go, among other options.
