New Accord is Bigger and Better

Fri, 13 Sep 2002
Honda is trying to get out of the melee of the rep’s special market and move its Accord model slightly up-market into Mercedes Benz C Class territory.

Accordingly, its new saloon will come with a minimum size engine of 2.0 litres pumping out a healthy 155PS plus 190Nm torque, or the option of a new 2.4 with 190PS and 220Nm torque.

Matched to a 5-speed manual box, and 0.26 cd, the 2.0 offers a combined consumption of 37.7mpg and a low CO2 of 179g/km. Wih a 6-speed box the 2.4 delivers a combined consumption of 30 mpg (no mention of its CO2). A 5 speed sequential shift automatic is also on offer. Both new engines are EU 5 compliant.

After extensive consultations with advisers from CAP, all new Accords will come with alloy wheels as standard, together with climate control.
