Honda Releases The Low Down On The European Accord


Honda announced the Accord for Europe.

Aimed at challenging established premium in the D-segment, Honda’s all-new saloon and Tourer offer styling, greater refinement and a package of safety systems, with excellent dynamic Strong environmental credentials in the of an all Euro 5 emissions compliant line-up further emphasize intent with the the all-new

Significantly wider and slightly the styling adopts a more sporty motif. The ‘sharp-edged’ with pronounced muscular that emphasize the car’s track, gives the Accord a strong stance with a planted feel. The distinctive and more flowing lines a tauter and more athletic

The evolution from the previous Accord is even more in the case of the Tourer, where a emphasis on load carrying has evolved into a more expression of its advanced technology, still retaining a strong of versatility and practicality.

Three new engines with some of the emissions in their segment

The new is one of the first to offer a complete line-up that will with the forthcoming Euro 5 regulations which aren’t due to be until September 2009. The environmental credentials haven’t achieved at the cost of driving however, and greater frugality is by greater performance and flexibility.

Making its debut is Honda’s diesel engine which on the outstanding qualities of the award-winning unit to raise the bar in the diesel once again. Its advanced and overall capabilities place it at the forefront of diesel development and the Accord’s claim to offer one of the combinations of dynamic performance and responsibility in the marketplace.

Like its the new i-DTEC engine is compact, refined and quiet in operation. It the latest piezoelectric multi-stage injection technology, more exhaust gas recirculation and a particulate for significantly reduced emissions. At the time both power and levels have been for a sportier driving experience.

is 10 PS greater at 150 PS/110 kW at the same rpm, while peak is now 350 Nm at 2,000 rpm.

The 2.0-liter offers similar levels of to its predecessor 156 PS at 6,300 rpm but builds on its leading fuel economy. Key changes include increased intake valves, further valve lift and timing and inlet and exhaust air flow

The 2.4-liter engine is more delivering 200 PS at 7000 rpm and peak of 233 Nm at 4500 rpm up from 190 PS and 223 Nm. Behind the are a compression ratio increased 10.5 to 11.0:1, larger valves, revised valve and reduced exhaust system

6-speed manual/5-speed automatic

All engines are matched to a 6-speed transmission, while both engines have the option of a automatic.

Manual models a ‘Shift Indicator Light’ or SIL appears in the center of the rev counter. or ‘DOWN’ are displayed to advise the of the optimum point (in terms of fuel economy) at which to gear; Honda tests demonstrated fuel savings of as as 5 per cent simply by following commands.

The 5-speed automatic now has a straight ‘P R N D S’ using the steering wheel in S mode provides a sequential mode, allowing manual and gear hold.

Agile, handling

Enthusiastic drivers also appreciate the new Accord’s agility. A lowered center of a wider track and the all-new double wishbone and rear suspension with variable dampers, plus greater rigidity mean that the more readily reacts to input. Handling is more and confidence-inspiring and body roll is reduced.

Speed sensitive power steering is standard on all and the new axial system features a output, low inertia brushless which provides excellent feel at higher speeds for a of stability and confidence. A quicker ratio has also been in keeping with the Accord’s agile chassis characteristics.

A comprehensive safety package

an armory of passive safety is an outstanding array of dynamic delivering even greater Vehicle Stability Assist is standard across the range and is to assist the driver in maintaining during cornering, acceleration and manoeuvres by applying braking to the or left hand wheels as and modulating the engine torque as required.

Motion Adaptive Power Steering (EPS)

The new also features an innovative in which the capabilities of both VSA and the Electric Power Steering are to bear. Called Motion EPS, it detects instability in conditions both during and under braking and automatically steering inputs aimed at the driver to steer in the correct

The input is barely noticeable and of the steering remains with the at all times. But this supporting torque is enough to prompt the to act intuitively and the driver’s reaction as a is enough to regain stability or to braking distances, allowing to be maintained.

Advanced Driving System (ADAS) optional the range

Optionally available on grade on 2.2 i-DTEC and 2.4 i-VTEC is Advanced Driving Assist (ADAS), a suite of three technologies that raise to a new level. The first of these is the Keeping Assist System which uses a camera to the car deviating from a traffic and provides steering torque necessary, thereby reducing the of motorway driving while at the time enhancing safety.

Adaptive Cruise Control uses a millimetre-wave radar to a consistent distance to a vehicle in front, for more relaxed, tiring driving.

The third system is the Collision Mitigation System (CMBS) which the following distance and closing between the Accord and the car directly in of it, warning the driver when a is likely and helping reduce when a collision becomes

These systems complement the passive safety features include front seatbelt and load limiters, dual front airbags, driver and passenger side airbags, length curtain airbags and fittings and tether anchor for secure childseat fixture on all There are also front active headrests which are when the occupant is pushed the seat in the event of a rear so causing a rigid plate to a link to the headrest which it forward to support the head.

Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Structure

Progressively introduced the Honda range, the Accord’s Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Structure provides significantly occupant protection in a variety of crash conditions.

A front-mounted main frame is designed to cabin deformation by distributing through multiple major bearing pathways and away the passenger compartment. This is important where a frontal occurs between vehicles of heights, weights or frame

To achieve top level, side safety, Honda’s engineers increased the side section of the and chosen different material to provide the desired level of and strength for critical areas, adding unnecessary weight.

The new also incorporates many of the design features already from recent Honda including windscreen wiper designed to break away on energy absorbing front mounts and bonnet hinges an unobstructed area beneath the allowing greater space for

The lid of the console box doubles up as an armrest and is by 89 mm. Two cupholders are provided in the center while rear seat have access to a further two in the center armrest, revealed it is folded down.
