The new 1.5L VTEC turbocharged engine gave it a big bump in power allowing it to stand above its competitors including the Toyota Camry and Mazda 6

Honda Accord Pricing
The 1.5 TC variant starts at RM178,203.00 brand new, whereas the 1.5 TCP variant starts at RM187,390.73. Both variants are similar mechanically but the Premium version has 18-inch wheels instead of 17, and additional safety features including Honda SENSING.
The Honda Accord comes in four colours; Platinum White Pearl, Model Steel Metallic, Lunar Silver Metallic, and Crystal Black Pearl.
The Honda Accord has one of the most impressive interiors in the segment. Its seats, steering wheel, and upholstery throughout are fully leathered for a premium look and feel. The 8-way driver power seat comes with a memory function, while the front passenger seat is 4-way power-adjustable. Other notable features include a 7-inch meter cluster, paddle shifters and cruise control, dual auto air conditioning, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a wireless charger for compatible phones, and a sunglasses holder. Rear passengers get dedicated rear A/C vents, rear USB ports, and rear side door sunshades.
Compared to the previous generation, the redesigned Honda Accord in Malaysia has a sportier fastback profile, with bolder front and rear designs reminiscent of the Honda Civic. The exterior sports LED lights all-around with LEDs in the auto headlights, daytime running lights, and front fog lights. It also has hydrophilic side mirrors that prevent water droplets from sticking and disrupting visibility. The chrome-finished twin tailpipes complete the car’s design and give it an athletic look.
The Honda Accord cabin can comfortably fit five adults thanks to the car’s overall size and Honda’s clever design. The car measures 4,901 mm long, 1,862 mm wide, and 1,450 mm tall. It has a boot size of 570 litres which is expandable with the rear fold-down seats.
The infotainment system of the 2021 Honda Accord is well equipped to give passengers a pleasant and engaging listening experience. The centre console has an 8-inch advanced display audio unit with two USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. It also supports Hands-Free Telephone and can be controlled via voice commands. To create an immersive sound, the Accord has 10 speakers and a subwoofer.
The 1.5L VTEC turbo engine used in the Accord is the same as in the Honda Civic and CR-V except that it has been tuned to produce more power and torque. It now produces 201PS (148kW) of power at 5,500 rpm and 260Nm of torque at 1,600 to 5,000 rpm. The 1.5 TC variant can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 9 seconds whereas the 1.5 TCP does it in 9.1 seconds thanks to the additional hardware that gives it more weight. Both variants have an estimated fuel consumption of 6.3 L/100km.
In terms of safety, the Honda Accord is well equipped to keep its passengers safe. Both variants have 6 SRS airbags, rear seat ISOFIX, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Agile Handle Assist (AHA), Hill Start Assist (HSA), front and reverse sensors, multi-angle reverse camera, Driver Attention Monitor, and more safety features you’d expect from a D-segment sedan.
However, the 1.5 TCP variant has additional safety features including the Honda LaneWatch Camera (LWC), a 360 degrees Multi-View Camera System, Cross-Traffic Monitor, Smart Parking Assist System with rear brake assist, Tyre Deflation Warning System, and Honda SENSING.
Honda SENSING is a full suite of driver-assistive technologies that can detect other vehicles and pedestrians, and take actions to avoid collisions. There are eight technologies in the Honda SENSING; Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Low-Speed Follow (LSF), and Auto High Beam (AHB).
The Honda Accord is a serious competitor in the D-segment sedan section. Its powerful engine, spacious and comfortable cabin, suite of creature comforts, and long list of safety features make it a great car at this price point. With its updated styling, it’s also great for younger drivers or those looking for a sportier, yet sensible and spacious car.
