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.

  • Sayahh Is it 1974 or 1794? The article is inconsistent.
  • Laura I just buy a Hyndai Elantra SEL, and My car started to have issues with the AC dont work the air sometimes is really hot and later cold and also I heard a noice in the engine so I went to the dealer for the first service and explain what was hapenning to the AC they told me that the car was getting hot because the vent is not working I didnt know that the car was getting hot because it doesnt show nothing no sign no beep nothing I was surprise and also I notice that it needed engine oil, I think that something is wrong with this car because is a model 23 and I just got it on April only 5 months use. is this normal ? Also my daughter bought the same model and she went for a trip and the car also got hot and it didnt show up in the system she called them and they said to take the car to the dealer for a check up I think that if the cars are new they shouldnt be having this problems.
  • JamesGarfield What charging network does the Polestar use?
  • JamesGarfield Re: Getting away from union plantsAbout a dozen years or so ago, Caterpillar built a huge new engine plant, just down the road here in Seguin TX. Story has it, Caterpillar came to Seguin City council in advance, and told them their plans. Then they asked for no advanced publicity from Seguin, until announcement day. This new plant was gonna be a non-union replacement for a couple of union plants in IL and SC, and Cat didn't want to stir up union problems until the plan was set. They told Seguin, If you about blab this in advance, we'll walk. Well, Seguin kept quiet as instructed, and the plan went through, with all the usual expected tax abatements given.Plant construction began, but the Caterpillar name was conspicuously absent from anywhere on the site. Instead, the plant was described as being a collective of various contractors and suppliers for Caterpillar. Which in fact, it was. Then comes the day, with the big new plant fully operationa!, that Caterpillar comes in and announces, Hey, Yeah it's our plant, and the Caterpillar name boldly goes up on the front. All you contractor folks, welcome aboard, you're now Caterpillar employees. Then, Cat turns and announces they are closing those two union plants immediately, and will be transporting all the heavy manufacturing equipment to Seguin. None of the union workers, just the equipment. And today, the Caterpillar plant sits out there, humming away happily, making engines for the industry and good paying jobs for us. I'd call that a winner.
