02 Aug 2014 Honda Accord vs 2015 Honda Accord
Sometimes it’s hard to see the differences between year models when it comes to already great vehicles – what exactly is there to improve upon? Let’s take a look at a great example – the Honda Accord and its transition from the 2014 model to the 2015.
Honda Accord is a model that has been in production since 1976. Though with a new design, the Accord still resembles its predecessors – it goes with the saying, “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it!” Honda owners have been loving the Accord look for decades.
Body and Trim
This generation of Accord comes with two body styles, 4-door sedan and 2-door coupe. There are five trims and one sub-trim to choose from when it comes to sedan and 3+1 trim levels for coupe body. Sedan trims are LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, Touring and EX-L with V6 engine sub-trim. Coupe Accord doesn’t come with Touring, Sport and LX, but has LX-S trim level. In the 2015 model, several options from the higher trim levels in the 2014 model become standards for lower trim levels. Base engine is 2.4L14 with 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. Other options are available, just as in the varying transmissions. The new Accord also comes in plug-in and hybrid versions.
The interior is modern and luxurious. Seats come as fabric or leather trimmed from Ex-L tier onward. Higher trims introduce dual screens as the have audio systems with touch-screen controls. HondaLink with hard drive that has 16 GB of memory comes with Pandora radio.
All Accords come with four-wheel disc brakes including electronic brake distribution and brake assist. There are also hill start assist, stability control, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control with airbag system, of course. Honda is one of the car makers that always managed to achieve high crash test results.
