Honda’s Accord is an excellent midsize sedan that will finally get its high-performance version. From the latest rendering images, the all-new 2021 Honda Accord Type R is ready to conquer the market with an aggressive and sporty look. Finally, we will see some refreshments in Honda’s line of sedans.
Generally, the new 2021 Honda Accord Type R will be based on the Civic Type R model, and both models will possess plenty of similarities. It is also a likelihood that the manufacturer will use the same powertrain from the Civic Type R model. If that happens, the all-new Accord Type R will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers more than 300-horses. We are assuming an output of 350 hp or even more.
2021 Honda Accord Type R Design
For a start, the upcoming Honda Accord Type R looks like a regular model. Even a forthcoming refresh doesn’t hide Accord styling behind. The new rendering photos released and we can see some visual updates. In addition, the Accord Type R looks aggressive and we mostly like Honda’s Type R badge that represents this model.
Besides that, this high-performance model would get some extra visual sizzle, better suspension, tire, and brake upgrades. According to the latest reports, aerodynamic will be better and we can expect great handling.
Cabin Will Be Modern and Sporty
Rendering image of the cabin is not available at this moment. However, many reports indicate that the upcoming Honda Accord Type R might use many upscale materials from the Civic Type R model. So, thanks to that, we can assume a very modern and sporty cabin that will be made of high-quality materials.
Likely, we will see garish red fabric seats that would be comfortable and supportive. On top of that, plenty of red accents will be present, like red dashboard inlays and smatterings of faux carbon fiber throughout. Furthermore, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring will be a piece of standard equipment for sure.
Is the 2021 Honda Accord Type R Fast?
The new 2021 Honda Accord Type R could borrow the current Civic Type R powertrain. Under the hood of this model is a mighty 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 306-horses. As we mentioned, the Accord model is based on the Civic platform and we can expect the same mechanics.
As you may know, the base Accord deploys a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged powertrain that makes 192-hp. However, optionally engine is more potent, and it consists of a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 that produces 252 horses and 273 lb-ft of torque. Basically, Accord Type R model will be a more powerful model and we assume that it will use a new 10-speed automatic transmission.

Besides, it may deploy a strong engine and it shares many similarities with the Civic model. According to multiple reports, this model will definitively cost more than the sports model. So, we predicted a price of around $45,000.
