At long last, Honda has finally confirmed prices for the new Accord in Thailand, as deliveries for the highly-anticipated D-segment sedan kick off today. The tenth-generation model is offered in the Land of Smiles in Turbo and Hybrid forms only, and none of them come cheap.

The base Turbo EL model is priced at 1,475,000 baht (RM194,400), while the Hybrid is even dearer at 1,639,000 baht (RM216,100); the Hybrid Tech retails at 1,799,000 baht (RM237,200). Those prices are slightly lower than the estimated figures that were revealed before.

Honda is sweetening the deal with an extra two years or 40,000 km of warranty for a total of five years or 140,000 km of coverage, plus 24-hour roadside assistance. The Hybrid gets a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty and a 10-year battery warranty.

As previously reported, the base engine is a 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo that produces 190 PS at 5,500 rpm and 243 Nm from 1,500 to 5,500 rpm – the same outputs you’ll find on a CR-V – and a quoted combined fuel economy of 16.4 km per litre. As with other applications of the engine, it is paired to a CVT.

The Hybrid, meanwhile, uses the Intelligent Multi Mode Drive (i-MMD) system that combines a 145 PS/175 Nm 2.0 litre naturally-aspirated i-VTEC Atkinson-cycle engine, a 184 PS/315 Nm pair of electric motors and a lithium-ion battery to deliver a total system output of 215 PS. Honda claims a combined fuel economy of 24.4 km per litre as well as carbon dioxide emissions of 97 grams per kilometre.

As for equipment, all cars get LED head- and tail lights, keyless entry with auto lock, push-button start with Remote Start, leather and wood trim, power-adjustable seats with driver’s side memory, dual-zone climate control with rear vents, folding rear seats, an eight-inch Display Audio touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and a reverse camera. The Turbo EL is the only one to come with 17-inch alloy wheels and twin tailpipes.

The Hybrid model adds fog lights, 18-inch alloys, passenger seat shoulder switches, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, rear window sunshades, Qi wireless smartphone charging, navigation and a 10-speaker premium sound system, while the Hybrid Tech throws in a rear spoiler, a sunroof, a 360-degree camera system, four-point front parking sensors and a head-up display.

Safety-wise, standard equipment includes six airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, stability control, a tyre pressure monitoring system and Honda’s LaneWatch camera. The Hybrid models get the full suite of Honda Sensing safety features, such as Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Warning (RDW) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Auto High Beam (AHB) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow (LSF). The Hybrid Tech adds Smart Parking Assist.
