The sedan comes with three types of engines: the 2.0 litre SOHC i-VTEC engine, 2.4 litre DOHC i-VTEC engine and the 3.5 litre V6 i-VTEC VCM engine. *Combined with the VCM Technology, a system that activates and deactivates the engine's cylinders, it meets the demand of both acceleration and fuel savings faithfully.

Interior Features

Elegant, comfortable and highly advanced. These are the key essence of the sedan's interior design. From its sophisticated d├ęcor to the rich leather seats, you can rest assured that it accommodates your taste. The centre instrument panel is also designed for better visibility and operability while the audio and climate control flow seamlessly from both sides of the door lines. Driving comfort is assured with the multifunction tilt and telescopic steering. The paddle shift reduces unnecessary gear shift-up in cornering and supplies acceleration immediately after making a turn without the driver having to lift a finger from the steering wheel. For driving information, the easy-to-read instrument panel is set to assist you and reduces your fatigue on the road. The audio system is situated on the interface dial and reads MP3 and WMA files or a CD-R and displays the track information on the screen. The centre panel also consists of a premium Dual-zone Automatic Climate Control System that is within reach for you and your passengers.

Interior Dimension

The floor is now lower and the wheelbase is longer to provide more space. Tandem space has been increased by 25mm; while the knee space is increased by 35mm. The distance between front occupants has been widened by 40mm to secure an ample front view for rear passengers. And a 15 mm reduction in floor height is achieved through an optimized exhaust system layout, a thinner floor frame and slender fuel tank.

Advanced Airbags System

The all-new Accord is geared with all the safety considerations. The 3.5 V6 is equipped with i-SRS front driver and passenger airbags, side airbags with OPDS and side curtain airbags. While the 2.4 VTi-L is equipped with i-SRS front driver and passenger airbags and side airbags with OPDS. And the 2.0VTi is equipped with i-SRS front driver and passenger airbags.

Active Headrest

Front active headrests help mitigate neck shock in a rear-end collision. A link mechanism in the seatback moves the headrest forward and upward to support the passenger's head.
