For 2010 the Honda Accord receives new features on certain models with an expanded application of Bluetooth and HandsFreeLink to vehicles equipped with leather seating surfaces and new rear seat ventilation ducts on Accord Sedan EX and EX-L models for more-direct rear passenger airflow.

The Accord Sedan’s exterior expresses an upscale and powerful presence with a distinctive 6-sided grille, flared fenders and inset character lines sculpted into the sides of the body.

Interior styling seeks to provide attainable luxury with generous standard equipment, world-class ergonomics and intuitive vehicle controls. Available premium features include the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Activation and XM Radio. The front seats are designed to provide generous lateral support and complement the Accord’s sporty side. The fold-down, lockable rear seatback increases cargo-carrying versatility and also includes a lockable pass-through for long items like snow skis.

New for 2010, a more-contrasting “lighter” gray color theme for the climate control buttons on all models helps to better differentiate the system controls in relation to nearby dark gray audio system buttons. Models equipped with the available dual-zone automatic climate control enhance the manual fan control override button to include on/off functionality with corresponding changes to the button graphic.

Available engine choices include a V-6 and a 4-cylinder engine. The V-6 engine produces 271-horsepower. The 4-cylinder engine generates 190 horsepower.

Base model estimated mpg: 22/31

Estimated starting price: $21,055
