2019 Honda Accord Trim Levels
Whichever trim package you choose, from the LX to the Touring model, you’ll be happy driving off the lot in whatever 2019 Honda Accord suits your specific needs.
The Honda Accord LX comes standard with a 1.5L turbocharged VTEC® 4-cylinder direct injection engine, which produces 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. This trim option has a standard Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode to make your driving experience smooth and efficient.
It has striking 17-inch alloy wheels as well as a Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System and Push Button Start. As for the infotainment center in the LX, it comes equipped with a 7-inch touch-screen with customizable settings and available Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®.
This trim will come with an in-line 4-cylinder engine and an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) with Sport Mode and Deceleration Selectors, allowing you to shift between four levels of regenerative braking performance. With increased fuel economy from the dual-motor drivetrain, you won’t have to worry about the next gas station for a while.
Other upgrades over the LX trim include Remote Engine Start and Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto-Lock®, a system that automatically locks your Accord when you walk a certain distance from the vehicle. A hybrid engine is available on the EX, EX-L, and Touring models for those who opt for it.
With a standard 1.5L turbocharged VTEC® 4-cylinder direct injection engine and manual transmission or an available 2.0L engine, the Sport trim offers a more performance-oriented experience. The 2.0L engine produces 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque to really feel those flat stretches and winding backroads.
You’ll be comfortable in the cockpit with a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. While you’re cruising down the left lane, you can enjoy the media of choice with an upgraded 180-watt audio system with eight speakers and an 8-inch touch-screen display equipped with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration.
The EX and EX-L trims also come standard with the same 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, but you can upgrade to the available 2.0L engine if you want more power under the hood. Upgraded safety features over the preceding trims include the Blind Spot Information System (BSI) with Cross Traffic Monitor and LED fog lights.
Don’t worry about connecting and charging your phone with a 2.5-amp USB Smartphone/Audio Interface in the front and center consoles.
The EX-L starts where the EX left off and brings a leather-trimmed interior into the mix. For audiophiles, the upgraded 450-watt audio system with 10 speakers should treat your ears kindly, depending on how you like to listen to your media! Your front passenger can enjoy more mobility, too, with a 4-way power-adjustable seat.
If you share the EX-L model with your coworker, friend, or family member, you won’t need to readjust the seat every time you start driving when you have a driver’s seat with Two-Position Memory. In addition, headlight glare is greatly reduced with an Automatic-Dimming Rearview Mirror, which will dim to the level of light meeting the mirror’s light sensors.
Getting in the cockpit of the Touring trim will grant you a standard 2.0L turbocharged VTEC® 4-cylinder direct injection engine and a 10-speed Automatic Transmission (10AT) with paddle shifters. This trim offers mobile hotspot capabilities and Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation SystemTM with Voice Recognition.
You and your passenger won’t overheat in your seats when you go for a weekend adventure thanks to ventilated front seats. Touring models also come standard with a wireless phone charger, so you don’t have to worry about draining your cell battery while you listen to some music or converse on the phone.
