New Honda 2019 Honda Accord for Sale in West Springfield, MA
Now in its tenth generation, the well-regarded Honda Accord has returned for the 2019 model year with the same style, reliability, nice interior, and value that have kept it popular over the decades. Although it hasn’t changed that much from its 2018 redesign, that’s not a bad thing at all, since it earned North American Car of the Year honors then. For these reasons and more, it gives its rivals in the midsized sedan class a run for their money. And, unlike the Toyota Camry, the Accord still offers a manual transmission to please the remaining driving purists with a littlemore fun and zip.
Trims and Standard Equipment
The six available trims for the ’19 Accord are the LX, Hybrid, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring. They all come standard with the Honda Sensing active safety suite, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, a multi-angle backup camera, and a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbo engine. The Hybrid adds a two-motor hybrid system, remote start, an 8-year battery warranty, and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission with sport mode. The standard features on the Sport grows, with LED fog lights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an upgraded (8-inch) touchscreen on the infotainment system, and some race-inspired elements: a rear spoiler, sport pedals, and chrome exhaust finishers. This trim also has two powertrain choices: a 1.5-liter turbo (with six-speed manual transmission) or a 2.0-liter turbo (with six-speed automatic transmission, or optional ten-speed auto trans), both four cylinders. Paddle shifters are available on either Sport engine.
Buyers of the EX trim will get heated front seats, a power moonroof, a blind spot monitor, a 12-way power driver’s seat, heated power side mirrors, and both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It’s available with either the 1.5-liter turbo engine or the hybrid powertrain. The EX-L is also available with those powertrains plus a third choice: the 2.0-liter turbo. Its added features include leather seating, memory function on the driver’s seat, a premium audio system with ten speakers, and auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Touring trim can be ordered in the 2.0-liter turbo or the hybrid powertrain, and it’s loaded with ventilated front seats, wireless phone charging, mobile hotspot capability, and a head-up display.
Safety and Technology

the higher trims.
