  • The Accord is one of Honda's more restrained efforts, with fewer mad lines, flourishes and . As the name implies, the V6L sports a V6 engine.

    The Honda Accord has received a facelift and the offering has now become even more impressive. Paul Maric jumps behind the wheel.

    The ninth-generation Honda Accord is still a can't-miss option in the Honda Accord Sedan review: Accord's last V6 makes a worthy.

    Crank the steering wheel and the front end turns in almost immediately with a nice amount of heft and feedback through the wheel. Dual-motor Tesla Model 3 possibly coming in July. Honda, VW are hard at work making intersections smarter. While it did show some frustrating tech and safety oversights, it was hard to ignore that this truly was a brilliant refresh in almost every way.

    Honda Accord V6 Review: A Great Car Gets Even Better

    When I told people about testing the Accord, most were surprised Honda still sell it. They had thought it had left the new car sales scene years ago. It seems to have fallen off the radar for many, as buyers flock towards the Mazda 6 and Ford Mondeo. Honda sent us one to find out. Well, this is going to be short. What you see is what you get. Standard fitment is a Kw, 3. From the front, the Accord is one sharp looking car. Those auto-levelling LED headlights look very stylish.

    Most of the comments I got on the car were related to the front design. Looking at the photos, I think it looks better in the flesh. The side view is a bit bleh, looking like many other 4-door saloons especially a Camry , but does have some nice scalloping to make it a little different.

    A shame as Honda could have gone out on a bit of a limb here and done something as stylish as the front of the car. Honda has done well here, not just with the level of standard features but the overall sense of luxury. I left the electric sunroof blind open most of the time to get more natural light inside. This screen also gives you a next-instruction when you are using SatNav. You do get water-bottle holders in the doors, but nowhere to store your hot coffee cup.

    As a throwback to Europe, you get three actual ashtrays in the NT. A great party trick. A nice touch is the pull-up door blinds for rear seat passengers — parents of babies and toddlers will love this. You also get an electric rear window blind to help keep that pesky sun off your rear passengers. The first thing that comes to mind when looking inside the car is the rear legroom. Popping the boot shows a long but quite shallow storage space.

    There is the saving grace of a full-size spare back there. How it differs from the Levorg is in the power delivery: This car will give you a good push in the back as it accelerates off the mark very quickly. At full throttle, you can feel the computer working the front wheels to give you maximum grip, but of course with enough boot, it fails. You can feel the wheels scrabbling through the steering wheel, which is most un-luxury like.

    To qualify this car as a mover, its time of 6. In saying that, the car has variable cylinder management, and when this kicks in, you do get a bit of a thrum when cylinders are turned off.

    Hey, this happens in all cars with that technology so no surprises there. I have to say that for the first time ever, I ran a car in Eco mode more than standard while testing it. With the V6, you get kW rpm and Nm of torque rpm, so power and torque to spare in this 1,Kg sedan. Interestingly, I found a review on the Drive Life website of the previous model with the same engine and John said exactly the same thing — he ran it mostly in Eco mode. Thankfully, the Accord is fitted with a run-of-the-mill 6-speed automatic.

    Coarse chip seal does bring more noise, but on the whole the Accord lives up to its luxury car status for NVH. Enough of the engine and its noise. In fact, I found myself settling in nicely every day in the Accord. Turning on the left indicator brings the camera on automatically, giving you a nice view of that side of the car, or a tap of the button on the end of the indicator stalk will also turn the camera on.

    More day to day niceties include keyless entry and start, hill start assist, an easy to use built-in SatNav — or you could use Apple CarPlay or Android Auto of course.
