The latest Accord is a good-looking machine, after seventh generation model. Eager 2.4-litre i-VTEC engine is complemented by a choice of two gearbox options: a 5-speed manual and an automatic, with paddle shift. Handling is well balanced at most times. Ride quality is plush and keeps bumps at bay from entering the cabin. Average fuel efficiency should stand close to 9kmpl. What you get here is a feature packed, safe and reliable luxury sedan that flaunts the Honda snob value on its nose.
