There’s something about the Accord Euro that just feels ‘right’. Wherever you look, inside or out, every last detail is as it should be.
The distinct curve of the front grille. The refined profile of the door handles. Right down to the subtle satin finishes of the interior. Every last detail has been pondered, appraised and thoroughly considered. But when you take a step back, the overall effect is nothing short of effortless.
Upon easing behind the perfectly positioned steering wheel into its comfortably contoured seats, you’ll be enveloped by the Euro’s unique dashboard. Suddenly, you’re struck with the sense that everything feels just right – that this is unmistakably a real ‘driver’s car’.
Your favourite music is always as close as your steering wheel, thanks to the Accord Euro’s iPod/MP3-ready sound system with 6-CD changer. This brilliant sound system boasts no fewer than 10 speakers, which can be customised to perfectly suit your musical tastes.
Take the wheel, and you’ll find the Euro’s handling is just as impressive as its sleek exterior. Meanwhile, under the hood, the ingenious 2.4 litre i-VTEC engine cleverly combines power with enviable efficiency. Using a clever cam widget, i-VTEC has the incredible ability to recognise throttle speed and regulate fuel use accordingly. It operates by using low fuel at low speeds, but still giving high performance at high speeds. Thanks to the power of i-VTEC, your Euro is endearingly economical yet satisfyingly responsive just when you need it.
There’s front, side and full-length curtain airbags, front seatbelt pre-tensioners with load limiters and front active head restraints to protect you in the cabin; and progressive crumple zones protect pedestrians, too. With so many features it’s hard to remember them all. But there’s one thing that stands out - its 5-star ANCAP safety rating. Which means the Accord Euro always offers safe passage.
The Honda Accord Euro isn’t a car that demands attention, it’s the sports sedan that commands respect.
