New Honda 2019 Honda Accord for Sale in Lincoln, RI
This well-balanced midsized sedan continues to be one of the most popular sedans within its segment, and for obvious reasons. The 2019 Accord provides great looks, plenty of cargo space and legroom, and above-average performance. The Accord combines commuter practicality and a pleasant driving experience, with turbochargers standard across all trims.
There aren’t many changes for this year’s Accord, since it was just redesigned for 2018, when it began its 10th generation and was also named North American Car of the Year. One notable difference is that the 2.0-liter turbo engine on the top-tier Touring trim pushes out the 1.5T engine and becomes the sole choice at that level.
The ‘19 Accord has five trim levels: the LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring (a Hybrid Accord is also available but is treated as a separate model). While many manufacturers have discontinued manual transmissions, it’s refreshing to note that Honda still offers the Accord with a stickshift on the Sport trim (mated to either a 1.5-liter or 2.0-liter turbo engine). EPA fuel economy ratings for this year’s conventional (non-hybrid) Accord range from 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway to 30 mpg city/38 mpg highway.
Some may look at the Honda Accord’s appearance and deem the style and design as its best yet, especially considering its beautifully upgraded interior. But the true strength of the Accord is its driving performance. Acceleration is smooth, and the sedan sticks to pavement when taking corners without any hint of diminished control.
The 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is the base engine for the ‘19 Accord, producing 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. One step up is the more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, which makes 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The CVT aims to provide optimal fuel economy in any driving situation, reacting to the need for increased power when you are merging into highway traffic or passing another vehicle. A new standard suspension system is an upgrade from that of older Accords, delivering better overall vehicle control and handling.
Safety & Technology
If you are a big fan of safety and technology features, you will not be disappointed with the ‘19 Accord. The NHSTA gave the Honda Accord a five-star overall rating, and five stars across all of their subtests, which is very rare. The IIHS also gave this Accord “Good” scores in every one of its crash tests.
The Accord comes equipped with the Honda Sensing bundle. This active-safety suite is designed to help mitigate or avoid accidents. It includes forward-collision warning with emergency braking, active lane control, a multi-angle rearview camera, and adaptive cruise control. Optional safety features include a blind-spot monitor and traffic sign recognition.
