The 2016 Honda Accord, still under production, is set to undergo a considerable revamp compared to its predecessor. We expect to see massive in almost every aspect of the car. This means more power, comfort, sleek, better design, and efficiency. To achieve this, new advanced technology will have to be incorporated in the design of the exterior, interior and the engine. Four varieties of trims are expected to hit the market. We could see the LK-L, EX, Touring and EX-L. The EX-L will have leather in its interior plus a navigation system.

More goodies include; Pandora audio system, Bluetooth, a rear view camera, an automatic climate control system, heated seats just to mention but a few.
2016 HONDA ACCORD: ENGINE AND FUEL ECONOMY
As we expect a plug-in hybrid model, it will be driven by a four cylinder engine which will probably be turbocharged so it will be very powerful with the horsepower expected to reach 200.
The most popular choice in engine is expected to be the 2.4 – liter which produces about 186 horsepower. The second will be a 3.5-liter V6 of 278 horsepower which definitely make it the superior of the two. The 2.4-liter option will therefore be preferred for manual transmission while the latter will be employed for automatic transmission both at 6 speeds.
Four cylinders for the gas engine, potential electric motor plus turbo charging will therefore render this method the best in this area of fuel economy.
