Honda recently launched its completely revamped and redesigned Accord. the V6, four cyclinder engine is pretty much standard although recent reports that Honda is planning to release the gas and electric hybrid model has since been postponed. There are 2 versions for the new Accord, the Sedan and the Coupe.

Engine variations include the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder with around 177 or 190 hp, and the 3.5-liter iVTEC V6 boosting 268 horsepowers. Coupes and sedans comes available in EX and EX-L trim levels. Entry level LX and LX-P versions come in the Sedans while the entry lavel LX-S is also introduced. Standard 4 cyclinder engines goes across the board while the EX and EX-L comes offered with V6. 5 speed automatic transmission is available across all models but the V6EX-L coupes comes with the optional 6-speed manual.

Standard safety inclusions are the usual suspects of traction control, ABS, curtain side airbags, ABS, antiskid and front side airbags. Entertainment wise, one can choose one of the 3 standard sound systems of which all comes with the MP3/WMA playback and the ; Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice activation (available on EX-L) with an 8-inch screen.

This revamp is refreshing and is believe to give the European manufacturers a wee bit more to think about in their next models as its slick and modernistic impression made by Honda this time around seemed to have shaken off that conventional and old fashion tag that used to come with the Accord.
