Honda Accord facelifted for 2016 – Price and Features


Honda facelifts the Accord line-up for 2016, updating it with new looks and better technology.

Visually, the mid-life Accord boasts a more sophisticated front fascia, giving the car a wider, sleeker and bolder appearance. The new look also bridges the visual gap between the Accord and the rest of the Honda family. The new “Solid wing face” grille is all too reminiscent of the all-new Civic.

Off the bat, 3 models will be on offer including the VTi, VTi-L and V6L models, at a price of $32,990, $43,990 and $52,590 excluding on-roads.


The VTi will share its 2.4-litre DOHC i-VTEC engine with the VTi-L, delivering 129 kW at 6,200 rpm and 225 Nm at 4,000 rpm. The 2.4-litre engine has a combined fuel figure of 8.0 L/100km in the VTi and 8.2 L/100km in the VTi-L.

In the V6L, a 3.5-litre V6 develops 206 kW at 6,200 rpm and 339 Nm at 4,900 rpm.

This latest Accord will feature improved connectivity, including Honda’s ‘Advanced Display Audio’ which brings with it Android Auto and Apple Carplay functionality across all grades, as well as Bluetooth connectivity.


The VTi-L and V6L also benefit from a suite of driver-assistance safety technologies, including the Honda Sensing package which combines collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control.

The Honda Accord remains the flagship sedan in Honda’s line-up with the the new model available for order from dealerships around Australia.
