Honda strikes a fresh Accord with styling and spec upgrades for its medium sedan
2 Jun 2006
HONDA has given both its four-cylinder Accord Euro and the larger Accord V6 some modest styling and equipment upgrades.
Headlining the changes is a completely redesigned rear-end for the big sedan, plus the inclusion of satellite-navigation as standard on the V6 Luxury.
Honda Australia senior director, Lindsay Smalley, said the added features and specification upgrades were designed to "add up to an even more enticing, affordable and luxurious motoring package".
Power in the four-cylinder Accord Euro VTi has gone up from 118kW to 125kW, while the car also receives a drive-by-wire throttle, a black interior with metal-look console, LED tail-lights, an LED high-mounted stoplight and an exhaust pipe finisher - as well as new alloys and a new gear lever.
Both the V6 and V6 Luxury add a vehicle stability assist (VSA) program to their equipment lists.
Pricing remains the same for both the VTi and V6 at $29,900 and $36,990 respectively, while the V6 L pricetag rises by $1250 to $44,990.
