All-new Accord hits Thai market
Japanese auto-maker Honda has launched the all-new Accord sedan, priced from Bt1.299 million to Bt1.799 million.
This Accord comes with a long list of new features, including ANC (Adaptive Noise Control), which offers a remarkably quiet ride, and CMBS (Collision Mitigation Brake System) that alerts drivers to an imminent front-end collision and automatically applies an appropriate amount of braking force to avoid or minimise chances of a crash, according to Honda Automobile (Thailand).
Powertrains include a 2.0-litre engine with 155hp and 190Nm, as well as a 2.4-litre motor capable of pumping out 174hp and 225Nm. Both engines come with 5-speed automatic transmissions and are E85-compatible.
The Accord also comes with the Honda LaneWatch Blind Spot Display for an enhanced view of the passenger-side roadway; Active Cornering Lights to provide enhanced night-time visibility when the vehicle takes turns; a multi-angle rearview camera; Daytime Running Lights; dual front airbags; i-Side airbags; side curtain airbags; Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA); Motion Adaptive Electric Power Steering (MA-EPS); Hill Start Assist (HSA); and an Emergency Stop Signal (ESS).
Honda plans to sell 20,000 Accords annually.
