Honda Accord Refreshed For 2016 – LED Lights and New Engine

By

The current update presented within the framework of MIAS-2014, with the car not only pulled up the exterior, but also acquired new, more technological engines, a fresh desgined transmission and a number of other innovations.

Outside

Exterior of the 9th generation Honda Accord is quite strict, neat and elegant at the same time. The exterior of the sedan is not endowed with fanciful forges, unexpected reliefs or unnecessarily sporting details. Honda Accord is a serious car with a strong character, who does not need excesses even in design.

At the same time, the current restyling in appearance did not diminish such serious approach, but rather increased. The massive radiator grille, more aggressive front bumper with integrated round fog lights and a new rear bumper with trapezoidal exhaust nozzles added solidity to Honda Accord, the sedan began to look more expensive and presentable.

Family guy

The interior of Honda Accord sedan has a classic five-seater layout and offers a sufficient amount of free space on both rows of seats. The interior is made in a rather elegant style, nice looking and creating a sense of luxury due to chrome parts, the highest quality of materials and the perfect fit for the decoration elements. The driver’s seat in the Honda Accord sedan is distinguished by its high ergonomics, excellent visibility and comfortable seating with the possibility of adjusting the seat in a wide range of settings.

No less comfortable landing on the back row, where you can feel like in a more expensive premium cars. Within the framework of restyling, the interior was practically unaffected, except for the appearance of LED interior lighting from serious upgrades. The luggage compartment, which can hold up to 15.8 cubic feet of cargo, was not revised.
