Honda’s Accord range is being primed for a CO2 emissions cut with a revised model due to arrive in showrooms in July.
Due to be unveiled to the public at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the latest Accord has some subtle styling changes, but all diesel versions (including automatics) will have CO2 emissions below 160g/km, with the manual saloon at 138g/km – an improvement of two BIK tax bands.
New technology on the Accord will include active cornering lights which help illuminate the path of the car when steering into bends and around corners.
It will also be offered with high-beam assistance which can automatically switch to dipped beam when the car senses another vehicle ahead.
The range also will undergo some interior improvements and ES and ES-GT grades will come with 17-inch alloy wheels as standard.
Full pricing and specification will be announced closer to the car’s launch.
