The Honda Accord benefits from improvements to fuel economy, refinement and exterior design to boost its competitiveness in the corporate market. Both Saloon and Tourer models offer improved fuel economy and reduced emissions compared to their predecessors with the popular 2.2 i-DTEC ES and ES GT manual Saloon at 138g/km and the automatic variant at 159g/km now fitting in comfortably below the all-important 160g/km Write Down Allowance threshold.
Joining the 2.2 i-DTEC in the sub 160g/km category is the sporty Type S in both Saloon and Tourer guise and 2.0 the i-VTEC manual in the Saloon.
“This sharpened engine range is yet another step in our determination to reduce the combustion engine’s environmental impact without sacrificing on refinement or performance of the car.
“This now means company car drivers will pay just £78 per month in BiK (basic rate tax payer) for the highly specified 2.2 i-DTEC ES GT manual Saloon – that’s excellent value for money for the most reliable car in its class*,” commented Ollie Parsons, National Leasing and SMR Manager, Honda (UK)
