How do I open a Honda Accord trunk from the outside?

My 2017 Accord has a proximity key fob, but I’m not sure if there’s a trunk release on the outside of the vehicle. Is there a way to open the trunk from outside?

A proximity key fob is a great feature to have on your Honda Accord! Luckily, you also have the option to open your trunk without having to pull the entire fob out from your pocket or purse, as long as it’s close enough to the vehicle.
The trunk release is located to the right of the license plate, under the chrome lip on the trunk lid. With the key fob no more than 2 feet from the back of your car, press the button to unlock and release the trunk. Keep in mind that this will only open the trunk. The rest of the doors will remain locked unless you choose to open them with the key fob as well.
