Tour the 2020 Honda Accord in Johnston RI

Car and Driver magazine loves it. Kelley Blue Book holds it in high regard. Both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rate it highly. It's the new Honda Accord, and it's back here in the Johnston, Rhode Island neighborhood for 2020. What's going on in the popular mid-size car's cabin and under its hood? Grieco Honda has the scoop!

The base LX trim comes well-equipped without frills. Tap push-button start and its turbocharged 192-horsepower, 1.5-liter I4 engine comes to life, ready to put out 192 pound-feet of torque effectively and efficiently thanks to a standard continuously variable transmission (CVT). Honda Sensing, our brand's active safety and driver-assistance suite, comes standard, with collision mitigation braking and road departure mitigation systems, a lane-keeping assist system, adaptive cruise control with a low-speed follow feature, and traffic sign recognition. Inside, you can sprawl out for the ride in as many as 105.6 cubic feet of passenger space, set the dual-zone auto climate control system how you prefer it, and lean back and enjoy your favorite road mixes via a four-speaker, 160-watt sound system, controlling it all from a 7-Inch infotainment screen with custom settings.

Step up to the Hybrid trim, and you get a distance-going version of the beloved sedan, with the combination of a 143-horsepower, 2.0-liter gas engine and an electric motor, active shutter grille to help improve its performance, and more. Rise to Sport, and you take the athletic turn. This trim features a hands-on six-speed manual transmission, pleasant leather steering wheel and shifter wrap, performance-inspired sport pedals and chrome exhaust finishers, and LED fog lights, not to mention a 12-way power-adjustable driver's seat with four-way power lumbar support, 8-Inch Display Audio infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and eight-speaker, 180-watt audio.

At the midrange, the EX trim brings perks aplenty. Safety advancements include blind-spot information and cross-traffic monitoring systems and heated, body-color power exterior mirrors, while the interior adds a one-touch tilting power moonroof, heated front seats, SiriusXM support, and an HD Radio. The penultimate EX-L not only upgrades seating to leather trim and adds two-position memory functionality to the 12-way power driver's seat. It also incorporates a four-way power passenger seat and builds in a thumping 450-watt, ten-speaker premium sound system complete with a subwoofer.

In the Touring trim, you go fully loaded. It features a powerful turbocharged 252-horsepower, 2.0-liter, in-line four-cylinder engine, on the one hand, capable of producing 273 pound-feet of torque and paired with a ten-speed auto transmission. The latter features the push-button convenience of shift-by-wire as well as steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Its head-up display delivers important driving metrics at a glance. Inside, it's full of luxuries, from heated front and rear outboard seats and ventilated front seats to Honda satellite-linked navigation, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, a wireless phone charger, and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. The last lets two compatible devices connect over a short range via the infotainment system.

There's plenty more to inaugurate 2020 Honda Accord as the next in line of one of the best-selling sedans across the US, not to mention here in RI. Take a ride out to see us at 1880 Hartford Ave in Johnston, and we'll introduce you!
