New Honda Accord

The Honda Accord is a saloon car that has a long history of reliability and quality, and the current generation of the Accord is certainly living up to that reputation.  The range is priced below rivals in the saloon market from BMW and Mercedes-Benz, and helps to make this a good option for those who are looking for a high quality saloon car.  Although the Accord is a competent and practical family car with its spacious cabin, it is fair to say that this is aimed at business drivers, and the Accord is a very competent vehicle on the motorway and comfortable on long journeys.
The Accord is available with three engines, two of which are petrol engines and one diesel offering.  The performance available from the 2.0 litre entry level petrol engine is quite good and balances with reasonable fuel efficiency, while the 2.4 litre petrol engine offers more fun and power in the driving experience.  The 2.2 litre diesel engine is a good one offering plenty of power and speed while still being an efficient car to drive.  The suspension in all of the models is designed to deal with longer journeys, with comfort being the priority here.
There are a number of different trim levels to choose from, but many buyers will be happy with the entry level ES models still coming with alloys and air conditioning.  The top end Type S vehicles are very luxurious for those with a higher budget, including leather seats, satellite navigation and parking sensors with a reversing camera.  The Honda Accord is a car that is very good at what it does, and bridges the gap between the mass market saloons and the executive saloons.  It also boasts the kind of reliability reputation that will be the envy of many more expensive rivals.
