In the international market, Honda Accord is available in 3 engines one being a 4 cylinder Petrol Engine and the other two being a V6 and V6 Touring engine. Taking into account that Honda wouldn’t get many potential buyers for V6 and V6 Touring in India because people look at the brand names like Mercedes and BMW not the technical specification at these prices.Honda Accord’s 4 cylinder motor is a 2.4 litre direct injection petrol engine which delivers a maximum power of 185 BHP. The wheels are powered by a CVT transmission system although a six – speed manual transmission is also available. There is also a hybrid variant of this car which has a four cylinder 2.0 litre engine mated to a 124 kW electrical motor and this hybrid machine is able to produce a maximum power of 194 BHP and was mated to an E – CVT transmission. This hybrid was unveiled at the Indian Auto Expo of 2014.
This hybrid variant may or may not be launched. Although, odds favour its launch, since someone has to come up with a response to Toyota’s Camry Hybrid. Since the hybrid market is slowly picking up, Honda and many other companies will try to turn over this stone.Honda may also launch it’s Civic (also, Highly Awaited) with a hybrid model. This could get them a lot of profit if not they will not be in loss, their cars have a tendency to sell.
Official prices aren’t out yet but D – segment sedans usually start from Rs. 22/ 23 lakhs so we can expect a starting price of Rs. 25 lakhs roughly in India but we’ll have to wait till the launch for the real deal on the price and specifications.
