Pricing and specification of the all-new 2020 Honda Accord have been confirmed ahead its arrival at Honda showrooms in December.
All-new from the ground up and riding on a new platform, the 10th-generation Accord is billed as the most sophisticated, fuel efficient and comfortable Accord ever, promising more refined and engaging performance, along with the latest Honda Sensing safety and driver-assist technologies.
The all-new Accord is available in a single, feature-packed VTi-LX specification level for the Australian market, but with the choice of two powertrains – a 1.5-litre turbo petrol with CVT or a two-motor hybrid system utilising a 2.0-litre Atkinson-cycle engine paired with two electric motors and an E-CVT.
Pricing for the Accord VTi-LX with the 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine and the most comprehensive package of standard equipment and features ever offered on Accord is $47,990, while the
Accord VTi-LX with the hybrid powertrain is $50,490, a reduction of $8,500 compared to the previous generation Accord hybrid.
The third-generation hybrid powertrain in the new Accord produces 158kW of power and 315Nm of torque, while the 1.5-litre turbo engine – a further evolution of the powerplant first introduced in the 2016 Civic and later applied to the 2017 CR-V – delivers 140kW of power and 260Nm peak torque.
Both variants of the 10th generation Accord feature the full suite of Honda Sensing safety and driver-assist technologies as standard equipment. Honda Sensing on the new Accord includes Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF) and High Beam Support System.
Additional driver-assist technologies include LaneWatch, front and rear parking sensors, Smart Parking Assist (SPA) with Rear Collision Mitigation Braking System, Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Driver Attention Monitor, along with a multi-view camera system for front, side, rear and 360-degree top down views.
Standard advanced active and passive safety systems include Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control System (TCS), Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA), Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), Hill Start Assist (HSA) and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
