Honda unveiles new Accord at Geneva auto show

Honda took the wraps off its new family car at the show, with the fresh saloon and sporty Tourer models the stars of its Geneva stand.

The upmarket newcomer features a host of advanced technologies, including Honda’s Lane Keep Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Mitigation Brake System.

Buyers will get the choice of three new engines, with 2.0 and 2.4-litre petrol units joined by the firm’s new 2.2-litre i-DTEC diesel. Later next year it will be available mated to an automatic gearbox – a first for the family model.

The eighth-generation Accord goes on sale in June as a saloon, with the Tourer arriving in September. Prices are likely to be similar to those for the current model.
