2015 Accord goes on sale today, "Gets Multiple Feature Upgrades"

Honda's 9th generation Accord has been selling really well; well enough, in fact, to earn the title of "The Most Popular Car in the U.S. Among Retail Buyers". In other words, Honda claims the Accord is the top selling car when fleet sales are excluded.

For 2015, the Accord carries over largely unchanged apart from a slight shakeup in the feature matrix. The 2016 model year should bring the Accord's mid-cycle model change (MMC) - this is when we expect to see some more meaningful updates.

For now, peruse the following press release and pricing info to see what the 2015 updates bring to the table.

The Most Popular Car in the U.S. Among Retail Buyers, Honda Accord Gets Multiple Feature Upgrades with Launch of 2015 Models On Sale Today

08/20/2014 - TORRANCE, Calif.
  • Accord family offers multiple variations of Honda's fun-to-drive, fuel efficient, roomy and very well appointed midsize car
  • 2015 Coupe and Sedan feature upgrades plus multiple awards and accolades recognize and reinforce Accord as the benchmark in its class
  • Leading all mid-size cars in new-vehicle retail registrations for first six months of 20141, Accord continues as the best-selling passenger car
Coming off an exceptional year for Accord that included retail sales leadership and the introduction of the all-new 50-mpg rated2 Accord Hybrid, the 2015 Accord Sedan and Coupe, and 2015 Accord Hybrid begin to go on sale today. Four-cylinder 2015 Accord Sedans have a starting MSRP3 of $22,105, with the four-cylinder Accord Coupe starting at $23,775. Both models are also offered with a V-6 powerplant. The 2015 Accord Hybrid, with Honda's Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) two-motor hybrid system, has a starting MSRP3 of $29,305.

The already very well equipped Accord Sedan and Coupe receive feature upgrades for 2015. The 4-cylinder Sedan and Coupe EX-L and EX-L Navi trims now include the convenience of the HomeLink® universal remote system that can be programmed with the codes of up to three devices, such as a garage-door opener or home security system. The 2015 Accord EX Coupe with 4-cylinder engine gains the Honda LaneWatch™ display that uses a camera and in-dash display to provide an enhanced view of the passenger-side roadway. All Accord EX-L and above Coupes will also now come equipped with an auto dimming rearview mirror.

The 2015 Accord Sedan and Coupe are available with the choice of two highly efficient Earth Dreams Technology™ powertrains, a 2.4-liter direct-injected i-VTEC 4-cylinder that produces 185 horsepower4 (189 horsepower5 in the Accord Sport Sedan) and a 278-horsepower6 3.5-liter VTEC V-6 with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM).

The 4-cylinder engine is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or 6-speed manual (6MT) and earns up to a 36 mpg EPA highway rating2. The Accord Sedan with V-6 is paired with a 6-speed automatic (6AT) with a 34 mpg EPA highway rating2. V-6 Coupe models can be equipped with either the 6AT or a 6-speed manual, with the 6AT having a 32 mpg EPA highway rating2. The 2015 Accord Hybrid is powered by Honda's Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) two-motor hybrid system that transitions seamlessly between electric motor power, gasoline engine power and hybrid gas-electric propulsion, delivering power to the wheels without the need of a conventional transmission. This elegant powertrain helps the Accord Hybrid earn a 50 mpg EPA city rating2.

The 2014 Accord received numerous accolades, including an unprecedented 28th Car and Driver "10 Best" title, as well as an Automobile Magazine "All-Star" award and "Best Family Car" award from Parenting magazine and Edmunds.com. Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com named the Accord a "Best Resale Value" vehicle and recognized it as having the lowest cost of ownership for a midsize sedan over a projected 5-year period. Included in the awards given to the 2014 Accord Hybrid were a MotorWeek "2014 Driver's Choice Award," a KBB.com "10 Best Green Car of 2014" award and a naming to Green Car Journal's "Top 10 Green Car Technology List for 2014."
