Silicon Valley just saw the unveiling of Honda’s hallmark sedan, the boosted 2016 Accord.
As tech tweaks are the must-have of new releases, 2016 Accord will be shipped in the U.S. with both Apple Car Play and Android Auto. So we’re on the safe side and don’t need to choose as diehard fans of either one or the other.
The Silicon Valley unveiling was done with a purpose. Sure, Honda 2016 Accord is well fitted for the typical over-35 customer with a knack for heavily tech boosted vehicles. But Honda’s spokesperson Marie Sage stated:
“It was outright the best-selling car in California and also the no.1 selling car to customers under 35, so it’s important to attract the car to millennials”.
At the new research and development Honda facility located in Silicon Valley, the company showcased 2016 Accord with all the bells and whistles.
Rightfully so, as the new Accord features a redesigned hood, brand new fascia on the front and rear, and 19 -inch wheels that pump into a meaner, stronger look for the vehicle. Add the LED everything, from headlights to fog lights to taillights and you get the new signature look for Honda Accord 2016.
So, here’s what the tech buzz is all about. The new vehicle will feature Honda Sensing which is a collection of driver assist and safety features that would work to:
“cut in half the number of collisions involving our vehicles by 2030, and completely eliminate collisions by 2050”,
according to Frank Paluch, the president of R&D Americas at Honda.
Honda Sensing aids the driver with lane-keeping, pre-collision braking, lane departure warning. Not to mention cruise control that adapts to the environment. Complete with Apple Car Play and Android Auto, the brand new Accord is bound to be on the top list of preferences for millennials as all smartphone features are one fingertip command away with the 7-inch dashboard incorporated touchscreen.
As for other specifications, Honda Accord 2016 is still a 2.4L four-cylinder engine powered vehicle, sporting six-speeds on manual or CVT transmission coupled with 3.5L V-6 with six-speed automatic or manual.
According to official statements, Honda Accord 2016 will hit showrooms by August, yet no price has been announced.
