Honda

Honda has confirmed the start of the sale for Accord Coupe from the beginning of March in all GCC countries. The all new 2008 Accord Coupe is the largest coupe in its class measuring 4.85 m in length, 1.845 m in width and stands at 1.430 m. The exterior is completely different from the sedan plus the wheelbase is also shorter by 60 mm. It embodies a bold and prestigious design with character lines that create aggressive angles which are unique to the Accord. Its styling also conveys a powerful stance through its long hood, a six point grille and projector headlamps that recess deep into the front fenders and contribute the aggressive front fascia. Large 18-inch wheels on the 3.5 EX are the biggest ever on an Accord and also differentiates the coupe from the sedan.

The Accord Coupe is available in two models in the GCC region: 2.4 EX equipped with a powerful DOHC i-VTEC 4 cylinder engine with 5 speed automatic transmission generating 191 HP while a powerful DOHC i -VTEC V6 engine with 5 speed automatic transmission and VCM delivering 271HP hides underneath the 3.5 EX.

Recently the media was invited to test the coupe at the Dubai Autodrome track wherein the handling and performance of the car were demonstrated. The chassis, steering and brakes have been redesigned to make the coupe more responsive and fun to drive. Indeed, the vehicle was responsive to sharp turns and hard braking and provided no reason for fear when tight corners were negotiated. The lowered engine and fuel tank reduced the centre of gravity and helped the vehicle maintain good stability.

Premium interiors adorn the inside with a rich, high quality look and feel that's both classy and modern. The distinctive low slung coupe’s exclusive seat position highlights the sports car appeal. New seat design is supportive with increased shoulder support for drivers' safety and comfort. 230 mm wide sliding centre armrest ensures that the driver and passenger can rest their arms comfortably.

Once again, Honda has proven to be an outstanding car manufacturer in terms of safety, performance, style, as well as, fuel efficiency with its Variable Cylinder Management technology.
