For 2016, Honda revamped its Accord model to stay in limelight as one of the 10 best cars. The Japanese carmaker endowed it with new flavorings to make it more appealing to the mass who may find the automobile appealing but a little bit to the scale of an overrated albeit sumptuous delicacy.
External and Internal Renovations
Honda gave the front fascia a makeover, starting at the new front ends, then the chrome bar minimizing but highlighting the grille at the same time. Accord also get a much squinter version of headlamps and a made over lower façade that holds the new LED fog lights. Moreover the wheels were deliberately changed into the 19-inch delights.
Interior-wise, Accord modes received different improvisations. For example, EX-L received minor updates like the 60/40 split folding rear seats for the Sports models or higher trims. Bigger change includes the integration of Apple CarPlay and Anroid Auto into the minimalist’s pride, the Display Audio System.
There are three major accomplishments in Accord’s under-the-hood renovation: 1) the base of 4-cylinder’s CVT; 2) suspension; and 3) structural reinforcements. Despite these, Accord retains its dynamism now even enhanced with the Sport mode. Meanwhile, check out the major specs of our 2016 Honda Accord model:
