2021 Honda Accord Is Freshened Up And Will Be Priced From $32,305 In Canada

The 2021 Honda Accord is updated and a new SE joins the lineup.


  • The Accord Hybrid gains stronger acceleration.

  • A new Canadian-exclusive SE will be offered.

  • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be standard for all.


The Honda Accord remains a popular option in the still-strong midsize sedan segment. In order to remain up to speed, Honda has updated the Accord with new standard features, introduced a new SE trim, and spruced up its styling.

All 2021 Accord sedans will now feature a wider updated front grille, new LED high- and low-beam headlights, and new are smaller fog light openings. The EX-L and Touring trims get new alloy wheel designs, and new colour, Sonic Grey Pearl, joins the lineup. Also, Blind Spot information system, the Rear Seat Reminder, and a rear seatbelt reminder will be standard on all.

The cool bit of news is that the SE returns as a Canadian-exclusive trim. It replaces the base LX but this is no “basic” sedan. It will include 19-inch wheels, full LED lighting, rear spoiler, dark chrome grille, and chrome exhaust finishers. The cabin will feature leatherette/fabric combi seating surfaces, a leather steering wheel, and a 12-way power driver’s seat. Not bad for $32,305.

The 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid, which starts at $35,805, gets improved throttle response however the system output remains unchanged at 212 horsepower and 232 lb.-ft. of torque. The $42,505 Hybrid Touring gains new 19-alloy wheels.
