The 2008 Honda Accord

For many months we have waited for Honda to introduce its 2008 Honda Accord and now the auto maker has finally unwrapped the redesigned 2008 Accord sedan and coupe, giving more interesting upgrades and tune ups.

So what’s new with the Accord? Inside Line reports that the new car received a new metal sheet, and under the hood lies the larger and powerful SOHC 3.5-liter iVTEC V6 capable of running up to 248 pound-feet of torque. Horsepower is 268, thanks to the five-speed automatic transmission and a -speed automatic transmission on its Accord coupe version.

The four-door Accord also handles the same powertrain under its hood but the new powertrain part has new variable cylinder management system which can be used to run either three, four or six cylinders. The EPA city/highway mileage is amounting to 19/29 mpg while the 16/25 mpg mileage goes to its coupe version.

Options for the Honda Accord are the two iVTEC 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines which are propelling on 177 horsepower and 190 horsepower respectively. Other features of the engine option also include both reprogrammed engine control module as well as high-flow exhaust system. All these DOHC engines are running on 21/31 mpg as their mileage ratings mated on five-speed manual and automatic boxes transmissions.

Honda did not make a hybrid version for the 2008 Accord, but they are not closing their doors on the idea.

The new version of Accord is comparable to both Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion. It has vast space in its interior moving up from a small size ride to an EPA Large category. The new car will be available this coming September 12. Pricing is yet to be released.
