For 2017, the new Honda Accord 2017 gains an even more precise handling and steering, quieter interior, and improved exterior visibility. This is in addition to existing features which it is known for such as a spacious and high-quality interior, a generous amount of standard features, brisk acceleration, and refined and efficient engines.
What’s even more, 2017 model year also sees an additional model – the 2017 Honda Accord Special Edition. With it comes a slew of unique features such as a “Special Edition” badging, heated seats, leather seats with red stitching, and a host of premium features.
For a precise cornering and improved ride quality, the new model gains a high structural strength thanks to a body construction that has utilized large amounts of high-strength steel. The Coupe body design is athletic, taut, and rakish, while that of the sedan is decisive, bold, fluid, and sleek. In both body styles, however, they both benefit from better fuel economy, aerodynamic efficiency, and expanded use of under-covers.

Also, lateral and bending rigidity has also benefited significantly thanks to incremental improvements on the torsional rigidity.

The chassis of both body styles has also improved significantly.
