2017 Accord features in 2.4EX grade onwards Remote Engine Starter which starts engine from a distance. The Honda LANEWATCHTM feature comes new in 2.4EX and 2.4EXL grades in addition to the 3.5V6 grades which uses a camera located below passenger side view mirror to display an expanded rear view of the passenger side road way on the high resolution intelligent Multi-information Display (i-Mid). The Wide Rearview Camera also gives a look of three different viewing angles which can also be seen on same screen.

The 3.5 V6 grades are equipped with ‘Honda Sensing™’. This new suite of driver-assistive technologies helps driver sense things which might be missed while driving. The Honda Sensing™ features consist of the below:
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) extends existing cruise control system to help driver maintain a constant following distance eliminating manual acceleration/deceleration.
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Engineered to gently correct steering when driver begins to leave detected lane without signaling. It helps in reducing driver fatigue.
- Collision Mitigation Braking SystemTM (CMBSTM): Designed to help reduce likelihood of a potential collision by automatically applying brake pressure if system determines a collision to be unavoidable.
- Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) System: A system designed to alert driver with the help of signals and a rapidly vibrating steering wheel that the car is drifting too close to the side of the driveway without any turn signal activated.
Start of Sales:

What We Like: Comfortable, spacious, fuel-efficient, and enjoyable to drive, the Honda Accord remains one of our favorite mid-size options. Good outward visibility means Accord is easy to navigate and the sedan has massive rear seat. Honda also offers important safety features, offering adaptive cruise control, collision-mitigation braking, and lane-keeping assist. Finally, there’s no denying the Accord has impressive fuel-economy figures along with sprightly performance.
