2010 Honda Accord | new car review

Posted on May 2, 2010 by









This generation of the Accord sedan was launched into the market back in 2008 but still looks as fresh as it did on launch. The Accord nameplate has stood for reliability, performance and value for money for over 30 years and the latest version is no different.

The Accord is ’s attempt at tackling rivals such as the Toyota Camry, Nissan’s Altima and a whole host of American-brand four-door sedans.

It’s the Japanese version of the Accord that is sold here and offers a rather sporting option in the four-door class – especially if you opt for the 3.5-litre V6 version. The Accord provides plenty of space for those onboard – the back seat is particularly comfortable, and there’s plenty of oddment storage areas dotted around the cabin. Those after leather seats should look to the EX SE or EXi SE models, which offer this luxury feature alongside a power sunroof.

Whilst the interior wide and open plan, the centre console is crammed full of buttons to control amongst other features the six CD autochanger and climate control which come on every Accord except the base LX trim level.

So long as it’s maintained properly, the Accord a hugely reliable car and both engines on offer provide a relaxed driving demeanour on the road, though the more potent 3.5-litre will provide the better overall driving experience.

That’s not to say the 2.4-litre four-cylinder is shot on power – 178bhp is more than enough for day-to-day driving, but the extra urge provided by the 271bhp V6 will be a welcome addition for long highway journeys.
