Whenever the product experts at Meridian Honda receive the news about newest Accord, they get very excited to share that information with people who might be in the process of looking for a new vehicle to take home. So, what’s new for the 2020 Honda Accord? Since Honda just redesigned the Accord a couple model years ago, the new sedan won’t exhibit many physical changes. However, the automaker is expanding its suite of safety technology to more trim grades and the 2020 Accord is the only midsize sedan in its class with an available manual transmission, according to the information provided by Honda.
