The limited edition Honda Accord is packed with extra features including fog lights, rear parking sensors,
Bluetooth, floor mats, illuminated door sill garnishes and 40th Anniversary badging.
Honda Australia’s Senior Director, Mr. Lindsay Smalley, is proud of the Accord's success in Australia.
"The Accord was one of the first models Honda introduced to Australia 40 years ago and has been a popular
choice ever since. The name ‘Accord’ was chosen to symbolise Honda’s efforts to achieve an accord between
people, society and motor vehicles through advanced technology."
"The Accord was ahead of its time when the first model was released and it continues to evolve to this day.
Last year we launched the 8th generation Accord, offering buyers the choice of either a 2.4 litre four
cylinder engine or a powerful 3.5 litre V6 featuring revolutionary Variable Cylinder Management (VCM)
technology that seamlessly switches between six, four and even three cylinders as required," Mr. Smalley
The Accord has sold over 16 million units since 1976 in 160 countries and remains one of Honda’s most
successful models for more than 30 years.
The 40th Anniversary Limited Edition Accord has a 2.4 litre four cylinder i-VTEC engine which produces 133
kW and 222 Nm with a 5-speed automatic transmission as standard.
Fuel consumption is rated at 8.8 litres/100km.
