- The 2021 Accord Hybrid is also benefiting from some new updates, including an innovative Two Motor Hybrid System, which provides an immediate throttle response, creating a more naturel acceleration feeling. Plus, with 212 horsepower, and an electric torque of 232 lb.-ft., the 2021 Accord Hybrid has the most power and torque in its class! The 2021 Accord Hybrid also adds some unique touches to its styling, with a “Blue-H” added onto the Grille, plus Hybrid Badges added onto the Front Fenders and Trunk Lid. In addition, the 2021 Accord Hybrid Touring trim features 19-Inch Wheels!
POWERTRAIN AND DRIVING DYNAMICS
The 2021 Accord Hybrid comes equipped with a Two Motor Hybrid System, and has received updated Engine Management Software, for more throttle control. Meanwhile, the 2021 Accord’s 1.5-Liter Turbo Engine has improved Idle Stop Performance, which means the engine starts-up faster, when the brake is released. The braking system has also been updated for smoother engagement at low speeds, such as in parking and stop and go situations. The 1.5-Lliter VTEC Turbo Engine (with 192-hp) is now standard in the Accord LX, Accord Sport, Accord Sport SE and Accord EX-L models, while the Accord Sport 2.0T and Accord Touring, come with an available 252-horsepower, 2.0-Liter VTEC Turbo Engine.

SAFETY AND DRIVER-ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGIES
All Honda Accords will also receive a new Rear Seat Reminder, and Rear Seatbelt Reminder as standard equipment for the 2021 model year. Plus, the new 2021 Honda Accord Touring and Honda Accord Hybrid Touring models now feature a new Front and Rear Braking System: Low Speed Braking Control. What makes Low Speed Braking Control so unique is that it uses sonar based sensors, which actually sense objects at low speeds, and even in parking. Honda Sensing has also received some new updates to its Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Keeping Assist System. For 2021, Adaptive Cruise Control has even smoother braking, when following another vehicle, while the Lane Keeping Assist System offers more natural lane centering.
