Honda-Accord 001

The Honda Accord 2.4 has been upgraded to six airbags (from four) as previously revealed, and we now know that the RM170,057.60 OTR without insurance price is up by nearly RM2,000 as a result, RM1,948 to be exact. What you’re getting are curtain airbags on top of dual front and side airbags. The 2.0 litre variants are unchanged, with two airbags.

The ninth-gen Honda Accord was launched in September 2013 here with three variants – 2.0 VTi, 2.0 VTi-L and 2.4 VTi-L. The range topper is powered by a 2.4 litre Earth Dreams Technology engine, which makes 175 hp at 6,200 rpm and 225 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The DOHC i-VTEC unit is paired to a five-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
