The Accord pleases the eye from every angle. At the front, LED headlamps with incorporated daytime running lights to create a look of determination. Sharply creased side panels add energy to the car’s character and lead back towards the lipped trunk. Understated chrome details on the front, side and rear accentuate the first-class exterior and match the distinctive alloy wheels. A long and slender shape also enhances the model’s low stance.
Settling into your seat is the start of the Accord experience. The precisely-arranged cockpit demonstrates the same attention to detail as the exterior. Here you can instantly interact with any infotainment function without being distracted from your surroundings. The sedan has space for up to four passengers and the spacious dimensions place ample room around them. This upscale environment has been built to last. Fine yet durable materials have been used throughout to finish the interior elegantly and maintain a quality look and feel for years.
This advanced car arrives fitted with an abundance of technology to make it a major player in its car class. A premium seven-speaker sound system features in all versions; drivers can link their own music player via the USB or auxiliary input jack.
An intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) shows infotainment details clearly on the dashboard. With a hands-free Bluetooth® system, it is far safer to take calls while on the move. Satellite navigation has been added to the 3.5-litre EX model to help buyers reach any destination via the easiest route.
Once you pull away, the significance of Honda’s powertrain technology is realized instantly. There are two Earth Dreams Technology engines to select from to experience the performance level that matches your style of driving. For a rapid response when you push the accelerator the 3.5-liter V6 with VTEC and Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) technology is the perfect option. Six-speed automatic transmission guides power to the wheels with no interruption. Efficiency advances have brought the unit’s emissions down and raised its fuel economy significantly. The 2.4-liter i-VTEC alternative is the choice for optimum efficiency coupled with generous levels of torque. One push of the start button fires your chosen powertrain into life in an instant.
Knowing your car is extremely safe raises the enjoyment that is felt when you are on the move. The Honda Accord follows many other Honda cars as a stand-out showcase of active and passive safety. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body stands up to collision forces and lessens the damage to other vehicles. If an accident does occur you are protected by front, front-side and side curtain airbags. The chance of an incident happening is reduced by active Honda technology. As standard the vehicle includes Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) which maximizes handling control even when traction is poor.
In addition, the V6 models also include Honda Sensing Technology which combines a number of features which increase your on-road safety. Some of the elements of Honda Sensing include Lane departure Warning, which alert you as you close to the edge of your lane, Lane Keeping Assistant System, which adjust steering to keep you in the centre of your lane when not indicating. Other features are Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning and Collision Mitigation Breaking System.
