The Honda Accord range was just updated yesterday, with the range-topping 2.4 VTi-L Advance now featuring Honda Sensing. The safety tech comes at a slight increase in price – it retails for RM169,800 on-the-road without insurance, around RM2,000 more than the previous 2.4 VTi-L.

Honda Sensing uses a millimetre wave radar in the grille and a monocular camera positioned at the top of the windscreen to provide a number of active safety features. It facilitates seven new features, these being Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM). Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

With the base 2.0 VTi having been dropped, all Accord models now get Honda LaneWatch as standard. They also get a full complement of six airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), hill start assist and ISOFIX child seat anchors at the rear.

Besides the added safety kit, everything else on the 2.4 VTi-L remains as is, with the kit list continuing to include LED headlights, 18-inch wheels, keyless entry, push button start, leather upholstery, powered front seats, dual-zone climate control, a powered rear sunshade, a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and a ‘Premium Sound System’ with a subwoofer.

No changes to the mechanicals, either – the 2.4 litre DOHC four-cylinder engine makes the same outputs as before (175 hp at 6,200 rpm and 225 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm), paired with a five-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
