All New Honda Accord : Ninth Uncle with Big Heart Return !!!

When came to D-Segment , Camry and Accord always a top choice. The script was not installing the VSC in new Camry create a short drama after the launch of All New Accord where the Camry owners tried to sell the one year car in order to book this new Accord. The second hand price gone was go down crazy up to RM 92k but i could not verify it. Camry is not bad car but the absent VSC playing a role here and this is lesson to Toyota. Honda playing safe in this matter.

Well what the new Accord is offer. The total new exterior and interior design. It look more big in size, heavier , feel solid and some European look at rear end. The use of plastic material is somehow lack of good color tone and speedometer similar to all new CRV (damn big). The continental feel appear in cabin with BMW and Infiniti design but missed out the control button near the gear box area. 

The engine for 2.0L VTi & 2.0L VTi-L run with SOHC i-VTEC tuned for better fuel efficiency and 2.4L VTi-L run on DOHC New Earth Dream Technology. The steering was Electric Motion Adaptive EPS combined with VSA. It run under same old Honda 5 speed transmission and very quite ride with Active Noise Control and Active Sound Control System that help to improve NVH level.

The standard LED daytime running lights, LED rear light, steering audio control, two multi-display , dual zone air-con with rear AC and front rear parking sensors as standard.

The 2.0l VTi with 17 inch wheel and 2.0VTi-L added with key-less entry with push button, Bluetooth, cruise control and black leather with power lumbar seat .

The 2.4 have the most advance with lot goodies like active lane watch and auto levelling LED light and etc.

The on road price with insurance for 2.0L VTi –RM 139,800.00, 2.0L VTi-L-RM 149,800.00 and 2.4VTi-L-RM 172,800.00. Currently the 2.0L VTi-L was so popular due premium leather seat and some extra fitting which missed out in 2.0L VTi model.

One most thing I hate was the brake was foot-brakes instead hand break which I personally feel it is dangerous to our leg if impacted with frontal accident. The best part is the car is big and spacious ever before and gave me a high sense of suite comfortable and relaxing while cruising on the road.
