The new 2017 Honda Accord refresh brings lots of appealing new features and technologies. They are in no doubt geared towards making it a force to reckon with in its class. Some of the factors that will undoubtedly make the Accord a top contender in its class include an available coupe body style, an exceptional ride and handling balance, spacious and high-quality interior, a generous standard feature list, and refined powertrains that are both efficient and powerful. The Honda Accord release date should be expected sometime in mid-2017.
What To Expect
News about the release of a best-selling vehicle in the U.S is always the subject of intense online and offline discussions. But they are mostly speculations and rumors of what to expect. For 2017, the Honda Accord is receiving plenty of refreshments not only in terms of performance but also on its exterior and interior refinements. Those changes are meant to bring it to speed with the rest of the vehicles that have recently been redesigned and offer all manner of contemporary designs.
But even with the new changes, the new Honda Accord 2017 is still by far one of the most elegant and thought-provoking vehicles around. It is well designed and Honda will only be invigorating a vehicle that already boasts of an “A” rating. Most of these upgrades are geared towards freshening the infotainment system, interior refinement, and adding high-spec options, of course, for an extra enjoyment.
The 2017 Honda Accord interior is well-appointed and hosts a wide variety of new technologies such as an improved smartphone app integration. The seats have received premium cushioning even for the basic model, and plenty of advanced safety technologies have also been roped in.
That said, the competition isn’t sitting pretty as well. One of the most formidable challengers the Accord will have to face is perhaps the Mazda 6. The 2017 Mazda 6 sedan price starts from an MSRP of around $21,495 and for that value, you get a smooth and responsive powertrain, top-quality materials, stylish looks, excellent fuel economy, and a sporty handling. The 2017 Mazda 6 release date is expected sometime in the latter half of 2017.
Another solid rival to the 2017 Honda Accord is perhaps the Ford Fusion. The 2017 Ford Fusion price starts from an MSRP of $22,995. Some of the new Fusion changes that were showcased during the 2016 Detroit Auto Show include added technology and an addition of two new models to its current lineup. One of the models that have been added to the existing lineup is the 2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport. Specs include a rear spoiler, LED headlights, continuously controlled suspension damping, an all-wheel drive system, and nineteen-inch alloy wheels. The other new model is the 2017 Ford Fusion Platinum.
