The Honda Accord Euro gets a number of luxury and safety upgrades

Tokyo, Japan- Honda has announced that its Accord Euro has received luxury and safety upgrades.

When the first-generation Accord Euro debuted in 2003, it revived the medium car segment, providing a rewarding driving experience on both twisty country roads and in the city.

The second-generation Accord Euro launched in 2008, built on those strengths with even higher levels of driver enjoyment and standard features. It also provided a roomier and even more sumptuous cabin.

The Accord Euro has been one of Honda Australia's best sellers since 2003 with over 45,600 first-generation and more than 16,300 second-generation units sold.

Powered by a 147kW four-cylinder engine with a slick six-speed manual or silky smooth five-speed auto with grade logic control, the Accord Euro is both sporty and fuel efficient.

An upgrade on this popular car has just been released, with enhanced exterior features that include a new three-bar grille replacing the previous two-bar version, re-sculptured front bumper, fog light surrounds and ventilation apertures. The rear lights have been recoloured a soft red and there is now a chrome strip on the boot-lid.

The interior has also been upgraded, with new satin-finish garnish on the door handles, console, steering wheel and other interior components. An anti-dust feature has been applied to the cloth trim of the entry model.

Upgrades for the Accord Euro range include steering wheel integrated Bluetooth, a new foldaway key design, USB connectivity and Trailer Stability Assist on all models.

The entry model gains auto headlights and rain-sensing wipers and the option of 18 inch alloy wheels. The Luxury Navi benefits from new bi-HID headlights with auto low/high beam and a cornering function which operates at speeds up to 40kmh, a first for Honda.
