2016 Honda Accord Release Date, Specs, Engine, Price – The Honda Accord vehicle is getting a redesign for the 2016 period. The car is going to be reshaped and offered as a 2016 model and will undergo some style changes which will be seen both on the sides and outside. The version which is going to be released for the US market is going to be upgraded in more ways than other ones as Honda is preparing to make a larger influence on the American market with this model.
The original Honda Accord was designed in 1976 and it took a while until it was introduced to the US market. Finally, in the year 1989 it was released in America for the first time and the rest is history. The car managed to get some very good reviews from the start and was a significant model for the customers in that market. Its popularity only grew since then and managed to reach a legendary status. Thus the year 2016 is going to offer something new to the market where the Accord is already viewed as a great option.
This is actually going to be an introduction for the already planned 2018 model which is going to be a revolutionizing model for Honda. As they are planning to reshape the brand completely with the next gen car, the 2016 model is a mere intro or bridge which will eventually lead to something even more spectacular. This by all means that the 2016 model is not anything special as it is. It will contain many features which are still going to be present in the future model but they will be expanded upon then. Study the review and see what the future brings for the Honda Accord vehicle.
2016 Honda Accord exterior
First of all, the new 2016 Honda Accord is going to come in two different car type styles, the sedan and the coupe version. The coupe is going to be offered in EX-L EX and LX-S sub models while the sedan comes as LX, EX, EX-L, and Sport models. The styling of the car has been immensely upgraded and the vehicle has received some nice update cues that make it much more aggressive looking than before.
The styling characteristics for the car are based on the Acura Legend in many ways and are particularly noticeable up front. The font end of the car has been restyled with a upgraded hood, it has a new grille as well and a bumper with LED fog lights. The Sport models come with a much more aggressive bumper design while the Touring trims include the LED headlamps as well. This year, there is going to be a 19-inhc wheel option available for the first time as well.
This is going to be an introduction on what the future cars are going to look like. The Honda Accord is being redesigned in a way that will make the evolution for their planned model easier and it will help things happen much more smoother. This was a highly anticipated vehicle but until the announcement about the future plans there was not that much hype about it. Sure that car is great and beautiful, but what it represents actually holds much more weight than the actual vehicle. The Sedan models are going to be much more distinguishable as they are going to come with a completely different hood than the coupe version while all the trims start with 16-inch alloy wheels and expand upon that depending on the trim level you chose to continue with.
The current styling of the inside of the car is going to be much similar to the one offered before. This time we do not expect any massive changes to happen and much of the style is being kept as before. But as this is the intro to something spectacular and extremely better it is a nice basis and a nice start on how the car is going to be made to look as the spectacular things are coming next when the car gets truly reshaped.
But let’s focus on the present for now and think about how the vehicle is going to look for the 2016 model year. It is going to be as roomy and as comfortable as before. The legroom and headroom combines for some great comfort levels as you will feel more than comfortable inside the Accord now. The car also features wider windows so it offers a nice view for the passengers and a better look on the road for the driver.
The cabin style has been altered a bit but not in a grand way. There are many infotainment features that come as a standard offer in all the trims, while inside the base one you get the -inch Multi-information (i-MID) display screen which helps you deal with all of the controls of the car.
You will also have the use of internet radio streaming and SMS text message features inside the base models, the higher ones have a whole different setup and pack a higher level package when it comes to the tech of the car. For safety, the most innovative addition is the Blind spot Display which gives you a direct picture and thus direct info on the screen on your monitor.
The newest redesign of the 2016 Honda Accord car is going to come with a four-cylinder V-6 engine that is parried with a six-speed automatic transmission for base models and a six-speed gearbox manual transmission for coupe models. This engine is modified to use direct injection technology and like that is able to produce 185 horsepower, for the coupe that is, while the sport sedan version gets an increase and has an output of 189 horsepower. The base fuel economy rates measure up to 27 mpg for city drives and 37 mpg highway drives, while the EPA rating in the CVT models is 21 mpg city and 34 mpg for highway drives. There were some talks abut the Accord getting a hybrid version but there isn’t anything to confirm that.
Price and release date
The new 2016 Honda Accord vehicle comes out next year and is going to be available for sale at somewhere in September. It is a good basis for the things to come and we feel fairly excited how Honda is dealing with this situation and which steps it is taking. The price of the LX and Sedan coupe models is not going to change significantly and remains somewhere between $22,500 and $28,000, while the V-6 models is priced higher at $31,000.
