2009 Honda Accord 2.0 for East Asia

2009 Honda Accord 2.0 for East Asia

For customers in East Asian countries such as Malaysia, fuel costs are a priority as petrol prices are rather high. To satisfy those who want a big car without the associated running costs, Honda is now offering a 2.0-litre variant in these countries.

The new Asian-spec 2009 Honda Accord 2.0 VTi-L is actually a fully-optioned car with a 5-speed automatic, leather interior, cruise control, a fully electrically-adjustable 8-way driver’s seat with power lumbar support, leather door lining, door mirrors with turn signals, and even an optional GPS tracker for security. An entry-level 2.0 VTi is also available.

Honda actually expects 40% of Accord buyers to opt for the new Accord 2.0 VTi-L in just Malaysia, as the 154 hp 2.0-litre 4-cylinder with 189 Nm of torque is now placed below the 2.4-litre Accord in the East-Asian line-up now.


Externally, the only difference between Asian and GCC Accord models seem to be the BMW-style red lighting strips on the rear.

For the foreseeable future, the Honda Accord 2.0 will not be offered in the GCC. For UAE prices and specs on the 2.4-litre and 3.5-litre versions, visit the Honda Accord buyer guide.

What do you think?



  1. Would make a interesting alternative to the common civic….

  2. 2.0 and 150+ hp cool….

  3. the civic 1.8 used to give 157 bhp. The 2.0 accord is surely gonna be slow considering the weight & size of te car.

  4. correction 3.5(2008/2009) 3.0(1998/2007)

    tru dat, brotha

  6. the 2.4 itself seems slow as hell esp. whn i see it’s own younger brothr, the Civic, overtaking it wid all ease!!..I can only imagine a 2.0L would be like…but yea, at the end of the day it’s only a family sedan, not a sports car 😐

  7. true vivek !!! civic is more faster than 2.4 accord.

  8. @xander

    Its about 140hp, NOT 157. 😉

  9. This 2.0 engine will probly deliver good power but only with a manual gear box may be it will have the spec as those from the 2.4 auto. 😉 I also like very much the rear of this car I hope that this facelift affects soon other marktes such as the one in GCC.

  10. 2.4 accord is for luxury not a fast car..as i prefer more for luxury than supercar..
