Refreshed Honda Accord Debuts In Asia

Honda has brought the facelifted version of the Accord to the Asian market, following its introduction in the US-spec from last year.

The car looks basically the same as the one already available in the States and it benefits from the full-LED treatment on the front end, as well, counting headlights, daytime running lights and projector fog lights, joined by the active cornering lights. On the opposite end, there is a new bumper and LED taillights, while updates also include sportier alloy wheels, in different patterns.

Some of the features of the refreshed Accord are the new 7-inch touchscreen display audio with navi, offered at no extra cost, dual-zone automatic air-con, sunroof, pull-up rear window shades, rear center armrest with audio controls, remote engine start function and cruise control, coming as standard or optional, depending on the selected version.

In terms of safety, the car benefits from six airbags, parking sensors on both ends, electronic brake force distribution, vehicle stability assist, rearview camera, hill start assist and emergency stop signal.

No changes have been performed in the engine compartment as the Accord is still offered with the 281 PS (277 HP) 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox, or the 175 PS (173 HP) 2.4-liter DOHC i-VTEC four-cylinder, mated to a 5-speed auto.

In the Philippines, the 2016 Honda Accord has a starting price of Php 1,788,000 (equal to $38,390) for the 2.4 S Navi and Php 2,288,000 ($49,125) for the 3.5 SV Navi.
