The announced new 2015 Honda Accord surely won’t be restyled version of previous model, although that vehicle was fantastic and without competition in sedan segment. Beside all of success that this model has achieved, last year Honda decided to present upgraded Accord for 2013 year. And when you consider that design experiments and equipment updates are expected from Japanese automaker, surprises are not expected, but when arrives a new 2015 Honda Accord you will be astonished.
Firs version of this vehicle was presented 36 years ago, and since then every new model of Accord was differently classified. Sometimes as a hatchback, a few generations as a sedan, and also as a full-size vehicle. But no matter how it was defined, there always was a need from buyers for this car. And fact that this model was best selling Japanese vehicle from 1982. to 1997., prove that theory. Although in that period, competition in sedan car segment was not as big as today, but Honda Accord is the first Japanese vehicle which start to produce in America. And brand’s main goal is to try to score market sales results from that golden period.
We suppose that Honda in this next-gen Accord will totally back characteristics of mid-size sedan car. No matter is it two or four doors version, customers have a possibility to choose a multiple options which can improve comfort, economy and efficiency of new 2015 Honda Accord. The interior in current Accord model is very luxurious and improved in comparison to previous version. And that is main characteristic of this Japanese automaker, its always improving. So we do not expect that the 2015 Accord will be totally redesigned and that it will offer a new updated operating systems, and also better entertainment features.
