The first ever Accord launched in India was designed with mundane appeal; the Accord launched after that has improved style elements, and was appreciated for its eye catchy appearance.

The center console has a classic image, the dashboard is designed in a classy and sophisticated manner, and instrument binnacle is designed with excellent calibration that offers visibility to those with power. For a highly comfortable vacation drive there are holes to fit in newspapers, books, small snack items. The comfort levels are known to be highly supreme that over powers even the Cruiser. The seating arrangements are impressive with amazing dimensions in terms of length and width. The main concern here is the head rest facilities are not optimum when compared to other luxurious products of Sonata and Camry.
The car is built with two power trains; the potent 2.4 liter four pot engine is constructed with variable and other world class technology techniques to release quality torque values for smooth urbane city drive atmosphere and also admirable mileage. There are a couple of transmissions to choose from with the 2.4 liter engine, there is 5 speed manual and automatic, and V6 variant is manufactured with auto tranny engine. Sources are of the view that the manual is a better option to choose from, since the movement with automatic is rather slow, and does not blend with the sporty demeanor of the car.
The mileage with manual transmission option is decent at 8.5 Kmpl in urbane city conditions and 12 Kmpl on highways. With automatic the mileage in city is 7 and 11 Kmpl respectively. The V6 version is disappointing according to car enthusiasts in the mileage department.
