With its sleek lines and spacious interior, the Honda accord has been the ultimate travel companion for travelers since its release in 2003.
And while the Accord has received rave reviews for its spaciousness, the exterior design has also been the subject of criticism.
Now, after spending $35.7 million on interior and exterior improvements, Honda has released a new image of its newest Accord sedan that takes a closer look at its interior design.
It shows off a few of the most noticeable changes that will make the car more appealing to those who drive the model daily.
First up is the updated roof line.
Instead of the traditional “C” shape, Honda is now using a “C”-shape that looks like a cross between a V shape and a triangle.
This allows for better airflow and ventilation, while also reducing the width of the cabin.
It also offers more air circulation, which should help alleviate the cabin’s hot spots.
On the dashboard, Honda added a new, larger infotainment screen, which includes a new “X” on the center-top display.
This will give the user a full-size, touch-sensitive display that can be used to launch apps, dial in music, and more.
On top of that, Honda’s new Accord is getting a “5” badge on the instrument cluster, which is a nod to the car’s top speed rating.
The car’s new 4.0L V6 produces 425 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, and the automaker says that this power can be added to the Accord’s 3.6-liter V8 engine, which delivers an impressive 707 horsepower and 595 lb-foot of torque.
The new engine will be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Next up is a revised driver’s seat, which now has more padding.
This includes a slightly wider seat for larger children, as well as an additional shoulder pad that can accommodate a child’s shoulder.
The seat is also wider, giving the driver a wider field of view, which will make driving easier for smaller children.
Also new on the interior is the new, smaller, more modern dashboard.
The redesigned layout allows for improved cabin lighting and navigation, while improving ergonomics.
Honda has also added new safety features like lane departure warning and a new blind spot warning system.
The rear seats are also now equipped with rear parking sensors, which helps to reduce the chance of rear-end collisions.
Inside, Honda also updated its audio system with a new sound bar and new speakers.
The audio bar has two “D” shape microphones that can also be set to play music, talk, or call the driver.
The system also includes a second speaker to simulate the sound of a passenger door opening.
