Aug 12 15
Honda has introduced a moderate update to its 2016 model-year Accord coupe and sedan, on sale this August in the United States. The 2016 model is a further refinement to the
ninth-generation vehicle introduced with the 2013 model year. The changes include design refinements, a more rigid body and upgraded chassis, and larger wheels and tyres on selected models, while Honda's suite of advanced driver assist programs have been added, bundled into a package called Honda Sensing. The model's weight has been reduced through body and chassis enhancements, but the powertrain is the carryover V6 and I4. The new model-year vehicle is also the first Honda to include both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Additional new equipment includes remote engine start, front and rear parking sensors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and rear seat heaters. The sedan receives a revised front fascia and a new, redesigned aluminium hood to replace the previous steel one. Depending on trim, the new model-year vehicle has LED fog lights. In addition, the rear has a revised bumper and LED taillights. The coupe receives revised front and rear fascias, a new grille, and revised headlights and taillights. The Honda Sensing package equipment depends on trim level, as some of the features are standard on the higher-priced versions, similar to the recently launched Pilot. Honda includes in its suite collision mitigation braking, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, road departure mitigation, and adaptive cruise control.
