2016 Honda Accord Release Date, Coupe, Price, Interior – The day when 2016 Honda Accord will be released is coming! Although the mid-size coupe and sedan segment is rapidly losing sheen with the bludgeoning number of Sports Utility Vehicle’s segment, there still exist a significant piece left in the entire automotive landscape.
Both the Camry and the Accord are huger sellers for Toyota and Honda respectively, and it’s on the subject of the latter that we are going to give attention to today – the new 2016 Honda Accord will receive important details which will guarantee a revolution within its segment.
For starters, the vehicle will be in its 9th generation. And despite the hullabaloo, Honda hasn’t given the vehicle much updates on its design, but just a few tweaks, fixes, and add-ons necessary to keep the sedan afloat until the 10th one arrives in the automotive scene.
So, buyers should not expect any radical departure made to the new Accord, but with all the tweaks and titbits refreshments, the Accord will certainly be a force to reckon with in the automotive industry. The following review has been prepared by well-versed pundits within the auto-industry.
2016 Honda Accord exterior & Interior Design Refresh
The automobile giant has unveiled the refreshed Honda Accord at an event held in Silicon Valley, California. Rumors have it that the choice of avenue has cemented the speculations that bill the vehicle as one of the most tech-savvy Accord ever built.
External appearance of the vehicle stands out from the outgoing models thanks to the bigger grille that gets its inspiration from Honda’s current design language, upscale looking headlights, and a reshaped bumper. Now, the Accord is more aggressive and muscular looking. This is despite the fact that the vehicle is within the segment defined vanilla cars – meaning, uninspired and bland to appeal to the largest number of would-be buyers – companies have ultimately began to find their voices in terms of design and style.
And although, the Accord still plays safe to that end, the automaker hopes the new vehicle’s assertive look will appeal to younger buyers.
Also available are the new LED taillights that are connected by a strip of chrome while the 19” alloy wheels add a bespoke finishing touch to the more premium look. The cockpit, on the other hand gains a new 7” touch screen, but the greatest news are on the Honda’s compatibility with both Apple Android Auto and CarPlay.
More so, all the models irrespective of the trim model will come fitted with Honda Sensing – a comprehensive suite of driving aides and electronic safety features. The bundles present in Honda Sensing include a collision mitigation braking system with pre-collision warning, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning.
New optional and standard features will round out the list of refreshments. The top of the range model now comes with automatic high beams, heated rear seats, front and rear parking sensors, and rain sensing windshield wipers. Buyers should also expect all models to come with multi-angled rear view camera.
In overall, we expect the new vehicle to come adorned with probably all high tech features in its class, at least for now – but we are guessing others won’t take that long to catch up. The vehicle will come fitted with Acura-style Jewel-Eye headlights into play. Moreover, the car will also adorn LED fog lights in the top of the range models like the Sport trim.
Under the hood of the new vehicle will be the same powertrain option as is in the current model. Buyers will be confronted with a choice of either the 2.4L inline four or the 3.5L V6. However, Honda has spent some valuable time making adjustments to its equipment list.
The 2.4L inline four engine has the ability to crank out around 185 hp, while the 3.5L V6 is rated at 278 hp. The 4-cylinder powerplant can either be ordered by a Continuous Variable Transmission or a 6-speed manual one. The V6, on the other hand can only be ordered to a 6-speed auto transmission system.

Price & Release Date of the New Honda Accord 2016
The refreshed 2016 Honda Accord is scheduled to make a debut in showrooms by next month, but the automaker hasn’t announced how much premium it has over the previous model. The 2016 Accord Hybrid has also not been introduced to date but we expect news in the coming weeks. Stay tuned and visit us again for new info on the release date of 2016 Honda Accord.
Making this car a lot difficult to popularize are its rivals and with the coming of 2016 Ford Fusion, 2016 Mazda 6, 2016 Chevrolet Malibu the coming year and the Hyundai Sonata in 2017, the Accord has a lot of things on their hands, but something we imagine it will enable it to pull through.
