The Accord got a mild update in Feb 2011 and seems to tick all the right boxes in terms of looks, class, comfort and luxury for a typical buyer of this segment. The new Accord is one of the best looking luxury sedans in its price segment inspite of being around for almost three years in this avatar. Class and opulence are words often associated with the way the Accord carries itself. This is the 8th generation accord and Honda has further tweaked up its exterior design recently. The bumper gets a minor facelift and gets complemented well by the new grille. The rear is enhanced with some chrome bezel around the taillights On the inside, you are greeted with luxurious and well crafted interiors.

The Accord is a very spacious and comfortable place to be on the inside for five adults. There are changes here in the upgraded model and the 2.4-litre engine now gets a sun-roof as standard. The steering wheel gets buttons for the cruise control system but surprisingly you don’t get controls for the music system. To complete the package, the 2.4-litre version also gets wooden inserts in the cabin. Lastly, the car now gets a Jackknife key as standard too. The V6 3.5-litre and 2.4-litre models also have a provision for Bluetooth connectivity and customers can buy it as a Honda Genuine Accessory. The Accord retains all its previous traits of a very comfortable car. Those who love to do back-seat driving won’t really have a reason to complain There is enough leg room, the seats very comfortable and control for the audio system is on avail too. 

The Accord continues to be powered by the 2.4-litre four-cylinder as well as the 3.0-litre V6 motor, both being petrol powered and remain unchanged. Like any other Honda engine, they are butter cream smooth and reasonably efficient as well. At the same time though, we at Gaadi.com strongly believe that a diesel option will surely make a huge difference in its sales. The 2.4-litre engine produces 180SP of power with 222Nm of torque and is available in both manual and automatic options. It also has an ARAI rated economy of 12.8 and 11.7kmpl for the manual and auto versions respectively.  The V6 has 275PS which more than most of the higher class sedans in the market. The kind of power this engine puts out is tremendous and can easily teach other expensive sedans in the market a thing or two about performance. The 3.0 V6 option is only sold with an auto gearbox and has an ARAI rated economy of 10.20kmpl. Like all Honda cars, the steering is on the lighter side as well which helps in city commutes. The Accord range starts at Rs 20.2 to 27.3 lakhs ex-showroom. The V6 is expenisve for sure but overall the Accord still makes a good luxury choice as it has a good blend of comfort, style and the Honda image and service to fall back on.

Interiors

Honda Accord 2007-2008 Picture

The Accord has always scored top marks as far as cabin quality, space and luxury feel goes. On the inside, you are greeted with luxurious and well crafted interiors. The Accord is a very spacious and comfortable place to be on the inside for five adults. There are changes here in the upgraded model and the 2.4-litre engine now gets a sun-roof as standard. The steering wheel gets buttons for the cruise control system but surprisingly you don’t get controls for the music system! I am sure those who like to do the driving themselves will take note of this omission instantly. The good part is that the existing music system has been beefed and definitely sounds at par with some of the more expensive luxury sedans in the market.

To complete the package, the 2.4-litre version also gets wooden inserts in the cabin. Lastly, the car now gets a Jackknife key as standard too. The V6 3.5-litre and 2.4-litre models also have a provision for Bluetooth connectivity and customers can buy it as a Honda Genuine Accessory. The Accord retains all its previous traits of a very comfortable car. Those who love to do back-seat driving won’t really have a reason to complain. There is enough leg room, the seats very comfortable and control for the audio system is on avail too

The Honda Accord is, without a doubt, a striking luxury sedan and despite of not offering a diesel option, manages to sell almost the same number of units as one of its main competitors, which ofcourse does offer an oil-burner option. The reasons for the Accord’s popularity are plenty. To begin with, as I mentioned in the opening sentence, it is one of the best looking luxury sedans in its price segment inspite of being around for almost three years in this avatar. Class and opulence are words often associated with the way the Accord carries itself.

This is the 8th generation accord and Honda has further tweaked up its exterior design recently. The bumper gets a minor facelift and gets complemented well by the new grille. The rear is enhanced with some chrome bezel around the taillights, the outside RVMs get integrated indicators and ofcourse you can’t help but notice those new gorgeous alloy wheels. These small changes do go a long way in adding more grace to the car that was already a very good looking vehicle. The exterior changes  are similar to both the 2.4-litre and 3.0-litre engine models.

What we like

New tweaks to the styling make it better looking.

What we don't like

Design starting to age.

Exteriors Details

Front Design

Honda Accord poses a bold muscular look with a forward thrusting nose with chiseled coffers, flared fenders for a wider, solid stance, long and sleek headlights, and the other thing twin chrome bars that flank the attractive-looking Honda ‘H’. And the front bumper is less sporty and more grown up; it got sunken machine gun pod-like fog lamps too.

Rear Design

Talking about the rear design it’s too look quite elegant with nice looking tail lamps and an extra bar of chrome under the tail-lamps makes it more stylish, there is a new chin and spoiler on this top-spec car as well.

Side Profile

The look of Honda Accord more depends on the side profile which reflects the e aero dynamic contour which makes it a real stunner, the rear view mirror at the side with side indicator on it makes it a real elegant one, it has chiseled Corners and long sleek head lamps which adds beauty to the side profile too and of course the wide opening doors and a Shapely rounded cabin.

Ground Clearance

Honda Accord got a ground clearance of 155 mm which is quite good for Indian roads thinking about a luxurious sedan car.

Bumpers

Honda Accord got stylish looking bumpers both at front and rear with stylish fog lamp placed at the front bumper.

Head Lamps

Honda Accord got a real cool looking head lamp with long sleek design stretched upto side, with lucid lenses and powerful illumination.

Tail Lamps

Fog Lamps

Honda Accord has the fog lamp at the front bumper which gives a wolverine look while lighted. Those looks like gun pod-like fog lamps.

Tyres

Honda Accord got big tube less tyres, with 110.2 inches of wheelbase, if we talk about looks it emphasis on wheels for bolder looks

Engine

The Accord continues to be powered by the 2.4-litre four-cylinder as well as the 3.0-litre V6 motor, both being petrol powered and remain unchanged. Like any other Honda engine, they are butter cream smooth and reasonably efficient as well. At the same time though, we at Gaadi.com strongly believe that a diesel option will surely make a huge difference in its sales.The 2.4-litre engine produces 180SP of power with 222Nm of torque and is available in both manual and automatic options. 

For enthusiasts, the 3.0-litre model is the one to go for. It’s technologically advanced too, firing anywhere from three to six cylinders depending on the throttle inputs. Maximum power output stands at 275PS which more than most of the higher class sedans in the market. The kind of power this engine puts out is tremendous and can easily teach other expensive sedans in the market a thing or two about performance.

What we like

V6 is great to drive, 2.4 is smooth.

What we don't like

No diesel engine offered.

Torque

accord 2.4ivtec gives 222nm of torque 4300rpm.Accord v6 gives 339nm of torque @5000rpm

NVH Levels

Honda has used something they like to call the Active engine mount to nullify any engine vibration that could arise when running on ECO mode. These replicate the vibrations that are out of phase with the original ones and counteract the engine displacements in any direction so that none of these vibrations are transmitted into the cabin. Then to compensate for the boom, they use Active Noise Control System that cancels out any booming noises in real time by emitting out of phase sound waves from

Mileage

The Accord continues to be powered by the 2.4-litre four-cylinder as well as the 3.0-litre V6 motor, both being petrol powered.

The 3.0 V6 option is only sold with an auto gearbox and has an ARAI rated economy of 10.20kmpl. The Accord has a system which shuts cylinders when not using all of them hence saving fuel.

What we like

V6 does not use all cylinder when going at low speeds to save fuel.

Still the V6 is thirsty.

Tank Range

The tank range of Honda Accord 2.4 iVtec is 546 km while V6 is 413 km approximately


Safety

Like all Honda cars, the steering is on the lighter side as well which helps in city commutes. It frees up as speeds build up and though it isnt very direct in the feedback, you never feel nervous or insecure while doing high speeds. While the 2.4 model comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, the more powerful V6 version comes with lower profile 17-inch wheels which go aid handling a lot. Braking is good with ABS with EBD. Plus it has driver and passenger airbags.

What we like

Handling is improved.

What we don't like

Not as much safety features like other rivals, handling still floaty.

Handling Braking & Safety Details

Handling

The potent, light and free-revving V6 is an absolute joy to use. It delivers considerable punch after 4500rpm and the best bit is that it keeps pulling hard in a linear manner all the way to 7000rpm.While the Accord does feel well balanced and points in nicely, the soft suspension, inert steering and only average agility mean this is a car that does not really like being cornered hard.

Braking Performance

Honda Accord is equipped with Power-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc/Solid Rear Disc Brakes 11.8 / 11.1 inches which is quite good at its performance.

Safety Features

Front 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System Driver's and Front Passenger's Seat Belt Reminder , Dual-Stage, Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags (SRS), Dual-Chamber Front Side Airbags with Passenger-Side, Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), Side Curtain Airbags, Driver's and Front Passenger's Active Head Restraints, Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) Electronic Brake D

Abs

Dual-Chamber Front Side Airbags with Passenger-Side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS)

Traction Control

There is a vehicle stability assist system which also incorporates a traction control that can be switched off. It can come quite handy during insane lane change maneuvers but its full potential couldn’t be realized on the straight roads.

More

Comfort

The Accord is meant for pure luxury and hence it comes as no surprise that the suspension is tuned more for comfort than for enthusiastic driving. This is a vehicle that feels best on open roads at triple digit speeds when all the minor imperfections are being absorbed easily by the set-up. Road noise is limited and NVH levels very good.

What we like

Great comfortable suspension and low noise.

What we don't like

Slightly stiff lwo speed ride.

Comfort & Suspension Details

Comfort

Elegant yet modern, the vast well-appointed cabin and the graceful woody panel of the Accord is designed to transport you new level of indulgence. The internal geometry of the Accord is so ingeniously conceived that it makes brilliant use of every inch of available space. The seating is as comfortable for rear passengers as it is for those in the front.

Front Suspension

The Honda Accord consists of Independent Double Wishbone with Coil Spring and Stabilizer for front suspension.

Rear Suspension

While the rear Suspension of Honda Accord is Multilink with Coil Spring and Stabilizer.


Honda Accord - The right Choice

By Abhinav Posted on 23 Nov 09, 02:05 PM

Pros The Best Stunner ever in this Category...

Cons A little too big to Handle

I read and researched a lot about Honda Accord Vs Skoda Superb before ultimately settling in on an Accord and Thank God for that. Accord is premium luxury car in this segment and the Superb pales in comparison . Agreed interior wise nothing to beat Superb but the Engine, the Looks, The ASS, the Honda Badge, the drive and The assurance of quality makes the Accord a winner by miles.

Pros Style, class, performance and economy loaded into ONE

Cons Nothing in this budget

I've had a Honda Accord 4-Cyl LX for nearly two years and absolutely love the car. The moment one gets behind the wheel, and steps on the gas, it simply is a joy to drive and maneuver this device. Its got all the features and more one can ask for in this budget and is great for a busy city life or a weekend getaway with tons of space.

By Navin Posted on 24 Sep 13, 09:52 AM

Pros Great Looks,Great Interiors,Comfort,

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,

I just hope if Honda Accord can give me an average of 10 instead of 5 to 6. Petrol prices are increasing every now and then, Honda should consider equiping the vehicle with a fuel efficiency device.
