2022 Honda Accord Unveiled
The 11th generation Honda Accord sedan has been announced. It comes with an enhanced hybrid powertrain option, additional technology, and an appearance and interior design that are influenced by the Civic. The 10th generation model, which was publicly unveiled in 2017, is replaced by the all-new Accord.
One of Honda’s oldest nameplates, the Accord, is a breath of fresh air among a sea of SUVs at a time when automakers are abandoning sedans.
The new Accord’s classic, three-box sedan shape is undeniable in terms of design; this is a significant change from the fastback-styled predecessor. Smooth and tidy surfaces define the 2022 Honda Accord, which is similar to the 11th-generation Honda Civic. The wide, hexagonal grille and the streamlined headlights both have a smoked-out appearance. Only a silver trim on either end of the front bumper, which has a large central air inlet, adds contrast.
A prominent beltline and a chrome accent around the window line define the new Accord’s look. Although 19-inch wheels are an option, it comes standard with 17-inch dual-tone wheels. It features a tidy tailgate, huge taillamps, and an almost end-to-end LED strip that breaks at the Honda logo in the middle. Additionally, the sedan has a gloss black base trim that wraps around the entire vehicle.
The interior of the new Honda resembles the current CR-V and Civic quite a bit. The 12.3-inch touchscreen is the largest Honda has ever produced, and higher variations come with a 10.2-inch instrument cluster for the driver as well as a built-in Google connection. The actual knobs and dials for the HVAC are a nice touch, and the AC vents are discreetly hidden below the dashboard’s mesh design.
OTA software upgrades are also supported by the 2022 Honda Accord. A 12-speaker Bose sound system, a six-inch heads-up display, wireless phone charging, body stabilizing seats that provide more support, and connected automobile technologies are additional noteworthy features. Honda’s ADAS system, which incorporates adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane-keep assistance, and other features, has ten airbags as well as other safety measures.
Honda no longer offers the 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine that was offered with the previous model of the Accord. The automaker now offers a revised 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine with 192 horsepower and 260 Nm on cheaper models, mated to a CVT transmission. The new two-motor hybrid system, which uses a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder Atkinson Cycle petrol engine, powers the higher models. The 204 horsepower and 335 Nm of combined power are produced by the hybrid powertrain, which has the engine and the electric motor installed side by side.
After the City, the Accord was the automaker’s second model to be introduced in India. In India, where the first three generations of the Accord were built, Honda made the model in four iterations. The fourth iteration, a hybrid that was imported, was a transient CBU import.
