Tackle Anything this Year in the 2020 Honda Accord in Clear Lake

If you’ve been looking around the market for a new sedan, then you know how difficult it can be when comparing model after model. We took all of the guesswork and challenges of researching vehicles, so you can relax and spend your time doing the things you love. So without wasting any more time, here is an article on comparing the 2020 Honda Accord in Clear Lake against the Ford Fusion.


The safety features found in the Accord help get you from point A to point B without any hiccups in between. Within every Accord model, you’ll have safety and security with smart airbags throughout the cabin that use vehicle speed and seat sensors to change the force used in the airbags. This can significantly reduce any damage that’s caused by airbags, especially for small adults and children. To take it one step further, if the sensors detect a child leaning against the door, then that airbag will shut off entirely. Another feature to keep you safe is parking sensors to warn drivers of pedestrians, other vehicles, and obstacles in front of or behind the Accord. The Fusion doesn’t have smart airbag features or a front parking aid to assist with your safety.


When put to the test by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Accord and Focus went head-to-head in a 35 MPH front crash test, and it was proven that the Accord is safer than the Fusion:

Other features found in the Accord make each drive easier on you and your passengers. With a standard heads-up display on the Touring model, you’ll have visual access to key instrument readouts without having to divert your eyes from the road. And when you put the Touring model in reverse, both rearview mirrors tilt to better show you the curb, making the troubles of parallel parking old news. But don’t worry, once you shift out of reverse, they return to their original position. The Fusion, on the other hand, won’t, because it doesn’t offer automatic mirrors or a heads-up display.


Along with a dual-zone air conditioning and a wireless charging system, the 2020 Honda Accord in Clear Lake will be your secret weapon in battling boredom and uncomfortable traffic jams.
