2021 Honda Accord Pricing: Under $25K to Start

2021 honda accord pricing under 25k to start

Hi gang! My name is Tim Healey, I am the managing editor of this here site, and I done goofed. Or may have, anyway.

Earlier this week, I wrote up the news about the 2021 Honda Accord, working off an embargoed press release. I wrote the draft Friday, put it into our content management system on Sunday evening, and set it to go live when the embargo lifted Monday morning.

While doing this, I either didn’t see the pricing and on-sale date info in the release somehow, or Honda updated later and I didn’t see it. So maybe I screwed up and missed two key details, or maybe not, but I’d like to make amends to you, the reader, by posting that info now. I’m doing this instead of updating the main post because that post is a few days old now and you’d likely not see the update.

Anyway, mea culpas aside, the refreshed Accord will start at $24,770, with hybrids starting at $26,370. That doesn’t include a destination and delivery fee of $955. Looking at trims of note: Accord Sport models will run $27,320, Sport SEs $28,720, and a top-trim Touring $36,700, all before D and D. A Sport 2.0T is $31,910 before destination, and a top-line Hybrid Touring is $36,240.

Key fuel-economy numbers are also out, and the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid Accord achieve 30/38/33 (mpg city/highway/combined) while most hybrids are at 48/48/48, except the Touring (44/41/43).

The 2021 Accord is on sale at dealers now.

    Current generation Accord is an incredible value. It will be sad if it falls victim to SUV craze and gets discontinued in 3 years.

      I'd put my next paycheck on the Camry and Accord and Altima being safe. I also think Sonata is safe for now - it's a brand new design. Passat probably does the zombie walk for a couple of years because VW just redid it and wants to milk whatever it can from an old platform.

    I got my mitts on a 2.0T Accord Sport with the manual. The size was perfect for me and the transmission was pretty nice, but I couldn't get it to work financially where I'd be comfortable enough to make the payments. I never tried the 1.5 because of the CVT, never a manual 1.5 in stock within 700 miles, and the internet talk of oil dilution issues. I didn't want a dealer to do a trade on a car I might not buy, even though I wanted a test drive. Consequently, I've fallen into Mazda's arms and am pretty happy all things considered. I more or less gave up on the idea of a manual because it's an often enough occasion that I'm parked at the end of my driveway and out with friends. In those cases my mom would be stuck because she can't drive a manual. When I finally manage to buy a house, and have enough disposable income to support another manual, I'll find one. I'm not there yet, and have other priorities and I'm okay with it.

  • 2ACL What tickles me is that the Bronco looks the business with virtually none of the black plastic cladding many less capable crossovers use.
  • IBx1 For all this time with the hellcat engine, everything they made was pathetic automatic scum save for the Challenger. A manual Durango, Grand Cherokee, Charger, 300C, et al would have been the real last gasp for driving enthusiasts. As it is, the party is long over.
  • MaintenanceCosts The sweet spot of this generation isn't made anymore: the SRT 392. The Scat Pack is more or less filling the same space but it lacks a lot of the goodies, including SRT suspension, brakes, and seats. The Hellcat is too much and isn't available with a manual anymore.
  • Arthur Dailey I am normally a fan of Exner's designs but by this time the front end on the Stutz like most of the rest of the vehicle is a laughable monstrosity of gauche. The interior finishes suit the rest of the vehicle. Corey please put this series out of its misery. This is one vehicle manufacturer best left on the scrap heap of history.
  • Art Vandelay I always thought what my Challenger really needed was a convertible top to make it heavier and make visability worse.
