If you were waiting for the 2020 Honda Accord to arrive, it will be at dealers Tuesday. But you might want to check out a deal on any 2019s left because the 2020 carries over that model year with no significant changes — just with a small price bump.
The Accord underwent a full redesign for 2018 and got only minor tweaks for 2019, along with slightly higher prices. That’s true again for 2020, with the entry-level Accord LX with the base 192-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter turbo engine and continuously variable automatic transmission starting at $24,800 (all prices include a $930 destination charge) — an increase of $150. And all Accords along come with the Honda Sensing package of safety and driver assistance technology, including automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning and adaptive cruise control.
The next-up Sport trim level with the 1.5-liter turbo starts at $27,460 — up $350 — and (thank you, Honda, for holding out) you still can take your pick for the same price between a six-speed manual transmission or the CVT. You also can have the Sport with the upgraded 252-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and your choice of the manual or a 10-speed conventional automatic for $31,990, also an increase of $350.
The EX (1.5-liter turbo and CVT only) starts at $28,700, up $150. The EX-L starts at $31,200 with the 1.5-liter engine and the CVT, and at $33,200 with the 2.0-liter and 10-speed automatic, increases of $150 on each.
The top-of-the-line Touring has the 2.0-liter and 10-speed standard, and also goes up $150 to start at $37,030.
