2015 Honda Accord launched in UAE, KSA & GCC, now built in China
The 2015 Honda Accord was launched today in the Middle East at a press event in the UAE. The new models will now be coming from Honda’s factory in China.
Updates have been made to the front and rear fascia of the new Accord. The interior gets a slight change as well, while Honda claims the new cabin is more quieter than the previous model. New features include hill-start assist and electric parking brake for all trims. Beige is currently the only colour option for the interior.
The 4-cylinder 2.4-litre engine now gets direct injection which helps bump up the power rating to 185 hp and 245 Nm torque, mated to a CVT automatic. However, the 4-cylinder engine is now 7% more fuel efficient than the previous model. The 274 hp 3.5-litre V6 engine remains the same.
Prices for the new Accord remain roughly the same. The 2015 Honda Accord should be available soon in showrooms in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other GCC countries.
