2016 Honda Accord Coupe, price, refresh, specs – The Accord is one of the best selling cars in the US thanks to the fact it offers a really nice driving experience, good interior space as well as really good engines which are not the most powerful out there but they are certainly more than enough for its class. Not too long ago Honda announced that the car was going to receive a small facelift and even though they didn’t release any actual information about it, two models have been caught testing and the end result seems to be quite impressive. Honda is going to work on the interior as well as on the exterior and the engines on the Accord are likely going to see a small upgrade.
2016 Honda Accord price and specs
Just like before, the new Honda Accord 2016 will continue to be available either as a coupe or as a four door sedan, allowing it to be a step above the competition. It will be available for sale this August with a base price of around $23,000 while fully loaded Accord will cost only around $2,000 more.
Engine wise, the 2016 Honda Accord is going to be available with four different choices. The base model will remain unchanged, so it will still get the same naturally aspirated 2.4 liter inline 4 good for 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy will vary and nearly 28 MPG, quite good considering it is not a hybrid. The top of the range model on the other hand is going to be changed with a direct injected 3.5 liter V6 good for up to 278 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. This will see a small boost in fuel consumption from the previous V6 and it should be available only with 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and two automatic shift modes. Two hybrid models are also going to be available, both of them featuring a 2 liter inline 4 and an electric motor while the plug-in will get a bigger battery pack. The normal hybrid is expected to get as much as 50 MPG in the city while the plug-in model should be good for at least 30 miles of electric operation only.
