New Honda Accord Unveiled
Honda has unveiled its next generation Accord, aimed to challenge the premium manufacturers in the D segment. With subtle styling tweaks, the new Accord boasts a more aggressive and sporty look. Although an evolution of the previous model, it is wider and lower than its predecessor and the Tourer version also incorporates a new sleeker rear. Engines include the debut of Honda's second generation i-DTEC diesel engine, which offers around 150bhp and peak torque of 258lb ft available from 2,00rpm. Petrol engines include the 2.0-litre and 2.4-litre VTEC. All engines are matched to a 6-speed manual transmission; while both petrol engines have the option of a 5-speed automatic, and will be compliant with Euro 5 emissions standards. More details on specification will be available nearer it's launch this Summer.
