2016 Honda Accord Sedan & Coupe Update Revealed

The updated 2016 Honda Accord comes in two flavors – sedan and coupe. As one of the best-selling models, the latest Accord’s update is focused on attracting younger audience, so the exterior got a brand new exciting look, but it won’t be appealing to under-35 buyers exclusively.

Of course, the 2016 Accord won’t look drastically different from the current one, but the visual changes aren’t that small. Both the front and  the rear fascia suffered very elaborate changes that brought new modern feel to the well-known face.


Exterior Improvements: New Aggressive Look

The World Car Fans article brought spy photos of the 2016 Honda Accord coupe which got new front and rear end. This fresh more aggressive style would probably suit the millennial generation. According to the automaker, this particular target audience bought more than a million Civics and Accords in the last eleven years.

The 2016 Honda Accord sedan has been revealed by the Car and Driver article where they published their spy photos along with information about the latest changes. They say that the 2016 Accord won’t get many substantial changes. Perhaps it could get some suspension adjustments, but the main focus of the 2016 model year update is at the appearance. The restyled 2016 Honda Accord has a new grille and bumpers, as well as new headlights and taillights.

2016 Honda Accord Engine Changes

The speculations are that the 2016 Accord will employ direct-injection technology in order to improve its V6 engine. This will inevitably lead to improved performance, but at this point it’s virtually impossible to estimate how the car will behave on the road.

Also, it seems that the updated Accord might get the brand new nine-speed automatic transmission. According to Car and Driver, it could be available on some higher trim levels only (probably Elite and Touring), but nevertheless, this is great news.
