Honda's Thai-built Accord V6 takes on the local large sedans
2 Feb 2004
HONDA’S latest mid-size car will appeal to faithful Accord buyers attracted to the traditional, integrated mix of un-challenging style, smooth road manners, interior comfort and consistent quality. The new model treads its chosen path inoffensively and carefully, adding more refinement, more interior space and improved road behaviour into the mix. There’s also a very effectively re-worked V6 that is so good it could possibly challenge Nissan’s new 3.5-litre Maxima engine as the best in its category. But if you want a lively, rewarding driving experience, we suggest you take a look at the more compact Accord Euro.

Ended: May 2003
Family Tree: Accord
HONDA'S sixth-generation Accord was sold here from December 1997 in V6, V6-L (for Luxury) and VTi (four-cylinder) giuse, but stagnating sales soon saw a VTi-L model effectively replace the VTi in 1999, before both L models were discontinued in April 2003. While the Accord Euro went on sale here the following month, the previous Accord V6 continued on sale until September 2003, when the new Accord V6 arrived.
