Honda has confirmed the new 11th-generation Accord is coming here.

The all-new Accord encompasses ‘Sporty Sophistication’ featuring high-quality materials and upscale touches.

It will be available only as a hybrid, with the latest fourth-generation two-motor hybrid system, as first seen in the new CR-V e:HEV RS.

New Accord will also be the first Honda in Australia to come with Google built-in.

It’s longer than before to accommodate the new hybrid powertrain.

This new fourth generation system includes a newly refined 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine, now with direct fuel injection, mated to a pair of larger and more powerful electric motors which are now mounted side-by-side rather than in-line with the engine crankshaft as in the two-motor hybrid system in previous generations.

The same 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine from the previous generation is used, with updates to feature improved VTEC variable valve lift technology, an upgraded direct injection system, a new cold-active catalyst, a high-rigidity crankshaft, and a revised oil pan to reduce engine noise.

It produces 143kW of power and 260Nm of torque, with drive to the front wheels through a CVT-style continuously variable automatic transmission.

Accord is the second-longest-running automotive nameplate in Honda’s history.

Launched here in 1977 the Accord has won numerous Australian awards, including Wheels Car of The Year which was the first for a Japanese manufacturer and many more esteemed medals since.

The all-new Accord is longer and sleeker with premium proportions and a broad stance, further advancing the Honda design direction with a low horizontal belt line and a long, powerful front end.

Accord backs up its sleek new looks with more confident and refined dynamics.

Inside, a new sporty and modern interior offers fine craftsmanship, high-quality materials and advanced features.

Modern, high-style materials include a striking honeycomb metal mesh accent that stretches across the dash.

For the eleventh-generation Accord, Honda has added a new 12.3-inch infotainment system that runs on the Android Automotive operating system.

“The Honda Accord has a rich history in the Australian market as a sophisticated, luxurious flagship model which has been a customer favourite since its arrival in 1977,” Honda’s Carolyn McMahon said.

“This new model offers the premium feel that Accord is renowned for, coupled with all the additional technological advances that customers are becoming accustomed to, including Honda’s e:HEV hybrid powertrain that delivers a dynamic combination of performance and efficiency.” 

“A true benchmark in its class, the all-new Accord is the best Honda Accord ever, delivering an unbeatable combination of style, efficiency, performance and connectivity.”

The all-new Accord arrives in the second quarter of 2024, with a choice of four colours, including Platinum White, Lunar Silver, Meteoroid Grey and Crystal Black.
