1. Beat the Heat with the Accord’s Cool Interior

The Accord’s spacious interior has plenty of room for five, with an impressive amount of legroom and headroom for everyone. The Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control will keep your passengers comfortable, and when the weather turns cold, available heated front and rear outboard seating keeps everyone toasty. To keep you even cooler during the summer heat, the Accord Touring trim features heated and ventilated front seats!

2. Drive through Charlotte in Style with the 2021 Honda Accord

For 2021, the new Honda Accord has been given a restyled front end with a bold, sculpted look, along with powerful LED low-beam headlights with auto-on/off and available LED fog lights, allowing you to see far as you drive through summer nights. The Accord’s stance is wide, with strong, car-spanning lines that constantly suggest forward motion, making for a dynamic look.

The 2021 Accord’s muscularity is continued by its fastback-inspired rear design. The sloping rear window offers head-turning style as well as ample space for all of your adventures around North Carolina.

3. 2021 Honda Accord: Now in Hybrid!

For an efficient ride while commuting, carpooling, or vacationing, the 2021 Accord Hybrid’s advanced powertrain delivers the power you expect with an Accord but with a lower fuel cost. Its two-motor hybrid powrtrain is paired with an e-CVT transmission to provide up to 212 total horsepower coupled with the responsiveness of electric torque for a breath-taking drive that’s good for the planet!

If you want to cruise purely on electric power, the Accord Hybrid has an EV Mode to cut out the gas engine entirely. And in a final triumph, the 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid keeps the trunk space of an all-gas Accord by putting the hybrid battery under the rear seats. It’s everything you love about the Accord, in a hybrid.
