Honda Accord Overview

The Honda Accord has been redesigned for the 2015 model. The base engine is a new 2.4-litre 4-cylinder with direct injection, mated to a CVT, so gets a slight bump in horsepower and torque. The other engine is a 3.5-litre V6 engine connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. t’s obvious after experiencing all the cars that the Accord is a supremely refined and well-made machine, although to get the four-cylinder model to move with anything like rapidity you do need to thrash it, which doesn’t suit it whatsoever thanks to its CVT. The V6, on the other hand, is creamy and delivers a lot more urgency, with the six-speed ’box perfectly suited to its smooth nature. But in normal driving conditions both variants offer comfort, civility and a sense of wellbeing not afforded by the likes of the Camry or the Altima, although the Nissan’s weightier steering would be welcome in the Accord, which feels ridiculously light. Standard features on the base 2.4 LX model include electric power steering, power door mirrors with LED indicators, power windows and mirrors, LED front running lamps and tail lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust tips, manual a/c, 6-speaker CD/MP3 stereo, cruise control, cloth upholstery, ABS, floor mats, stability control and hill-start assist, as does all other trim levels. All models gets active noise cancellation, to reduce engine noise. The interior gets a standard new i-MID system, an 8-inch screen on the dashboard used for displaying information, navigation, for playing music through your iPhone or USB, as well as for storing music in the in-built hard-drive, depending on trim level. The Honda Accord is one of the most preferred rent a cars in Dubai.
