Freshly released with a complete redesign for the 2021 model year edition, we cannot expect the 2022 Honda to get any other major design revisions on the outside. But to honor the 2022 model year release, Honda must have decided on implementing some minor tweaks to its interior equipment, especially for the infotainment system.
Changes to Come for the 2022 Model Year Lineup
As shared by the San Bruno Honda dealer, it could be a bigger infotainment screen to come as standard on all the 2022 Honda Accord models, while there are rumors that a wireless mobile connectivity will also join the feature list of its higher trims.
On the powertrain front the 1.5L turbo-4 engines are expected to be present, carried over from its earlier generation, but apart from that, a new 2.0L turbo-4 engine is expected to be introduced by the automaker to power the higher trims of the 2022 Accord sedan series.
For the year 2022, the Honda Accord would continue to be dressed up in six distinctive trims to compete with its rivals like the Hyundai Sonata, Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry. There can be the addition of a hybrid model as well apart from the six regular trims, named as LX, Sport, Sport SE, EX-L, Sport 2.0T, and Touring.
Power Configuring Options
The new 2022 model year edition of the Honda Accord series are certainly going to grab the eyeballs around, with its smart and aesthetic looks. But what will make it a winner of the race is its performance quality, wherein a 1.5L VTEC Turbocharged 4-Cylinder engine will show off its drive skills and a 2.0-Liter VTEC Turbocharged 4-Cylinder will dominate the roads, with its powerful off-roading spirit. The base engine will put up 192 hp, and will score an excellent fuel-efficiency of 30 mpg in the city roads and 38 mpg on the highway, with the FWD configuration. If you drive the AWD version, the fuel efficiency will be recorded at 29 and 35 mpg on the same city and highway drives, respectively.
How Safe is the 2022 Honda Accord to Drive?
After receiving the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS and the NHTSA 5-star rating, just the last year in 2021, it is expected that the Accord model series from Honda will keep up the pace, in terms of safe drives with all its fierce rivals.
Apart from its brand exclusive Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), the 2022 Honda Accord sedans will not let the driver take any wrong decision through its multiple alert systems, including the Lane departure warning Forward collision warning, and Lane-keeping assist, where the 2022 Honda Accord will raise an alarm, whenever the driver takes a deviation from its original lane, without turning on the indicator lights. On the other hand, features like Blind spot monitor will enhance the visibility of the driver where natural eyes cannot reach. In the occasion of a close tie with the following car, a pedestrian crossing the road, or an upcoming vehicle speeding up, the Emergency braking assist will start applying the brakes, if the driver fails to do so in time, assured the staff members who attended us at the Honda dealer serving San Bruno.
