2020 Honda Accord – bookings open in Malaysia for 10th-gen, 1.5L VTEC Turbo, 201 PS and 260 Nm

Honda Malaysia has announced that the order books have opened for the new Honda Accord, which is due to be launched sometime in the first quarter. The tenth-generation D-segment sedan made its ASEAN debut in Thailand last March, followed by Indonesia in July 2019, the Philippines in September, and Singapore and Vietnam in October, so its introduction in Malaysia is well due.

By the looks of it, we’ll only be getting one variant (like Indonesia), and that’s the turbocharged 1.5L. The 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo mill is the same as that on the Civic and CR-V, but interestingly, it looks like both power and torque outputs have been bumped up in the application here compared to other regional markets.

Based on the press release announcing the opening of the order books, the local Accord will have 201 PS and 260 Nm, an increase of 11 PS and 17 Nm over the tune seen on the Thailand and Indonesian versions, which are rated at 190 PS at 5,500 rpm and 243 Nm from 1,500 to 5,500 rpm, identical to that on the CR-V 1.5L Turbo.

Standard equipment will include full LED headlights and tail lights, a Smart Parking Assist System with Brake Assist (rear), multi-view 360° camera system as well as Honda LaneWatch, and the Malaysian car will ride on 18-inch alloys.

Like the ninth-gen facelift, the new Accord is equipped with the automaker’s Honda Sensing suite of safety features. Seven of these were seen previously – 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), while the Low Speed Follow (LSF) function has now been added to the tenth-gen.

The five-star ASEAN NCAP-rated Accord will also come with standard safety features such as six airbags, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), ABS, EBD, an emergency stop signal (ESS), hill start assist (HSA) and front/rear parking sensors.

        Just 3 years ago, Honda Accord can get RM125k after discounts. Toyota Camry can get RM136k after discounts.

        Now Camry is RM200k.

        We Malaysians are being cheated. Government owned GLCs are the ones owning Toyota (UMW) and Honda (DRB)

        It is quite impossible for Honda to set at RM 169k. The current 2.4 without turbo already selling RM 169k and this new accord is although 1.5 but it comes with turbo and higher horsepower and torque. It is safe to say the car price will definitely above RM 180k.

    Finish Honda Malaysia and their arrogant attitude that gives a car with many issues on quality and aftersales services. Nobody will touch this brand. Salesman will start crying. So called as “Power of Nightmare Cars”

    As majority in Malaysia fed up of driving honda cars because too many quality issues on newer Honda models after bought for less than 1 year. When go to aftersales service, people also complaining most of the aftersales service dealer. Cannot solve. Shows that technicians are having half past six, lying, didn’t repair at all, never repair other peoples car at all.

    Yet, some of them are still buying Honda cars with brainless. Also, come here hating kimchi cars with low resale value and hating mazda. Just look at safety specs, most of Honda models are really kosong spec. Compare to Mazda, Toyota and Hyundai Ioniq comes with blind spot monitor, AEB, land departure warning and others. No wonder, many mazda CX-5 and Proton X70 everywhere than looking Honda CRV is now rare.

    Malaysians rather buy mazda. This comes with 5 years warranty as Honda. Bermaz service is better and they already improved their service than honda. Even CKD Mazda CX-5 looks so so but better than most Honda models. So Honda Malaysia is dead.

Do you know accord and camry having HUGE legroom and very sufficient headroom. SUV always having better headroom but legroom is adequate but not spacious.

    The design of Accord is becoming more and more “Ubi”. Typically, Malaysia’s new cars always being sold with “K”(kosong) spec, or “L” (low) spec.

    Our unique K or L spec cars are so special and unique, even US or Europe don’t have such cars.

    Malaysia surely Boleh, yes?

    Man that engine bay looks like a clutter of mess. Even Proton X70 has a neat covered engine bay that you usually only find in luxury cars.

      It has to be messy to cater for the low skillset of Thai and Malaysian assembly plant workers. Win-win. Honda can cut corners here and there, at the same time their assembly line or assembly partners can hire cheap labor.

      Sohai, I will see how you do a quick diagnoise if it is overheating with the massive engine cover that you can’t even show off. This is not supercar, but mass affordable car (although not exactly affordable in Malaysia), who care about engine cover?

      Do you know why X70 need the engine cover, and also most places are covered? The main reason is not because of “beauty” but to freaking reduce the engine noise. The cover served as noise isolation pad. This pad has its own problem where it may cap the heat within the engine bay and also bad for air circulation. Even though Merc got huge engine cover but other areas are not being covered for better heat escape.

    Come on Honda Malaysia. Please bring the 2.0T 250++ hp version as well with loaded safety features. And with the real mechanical gear box rather than plastic CVT gear box.

    1.5T is boring no matter how much hp you crank out of it. It is time for Honda Malaysia to stop playing safe. Mazda6 got 2.5T, Passat prefacelift got 220hp 2.0Turbo.

    Sorry not fan of Camry with no turbos and lots of CVTs.

      Get your facts right. I’m not a Honda fan but:
      – Camry malaysia doesnt come with CVT,
      – Mazda6 malaysia doesnt come with 2.5T

      I agree, if we got the Accord with 2.0T and 10 speed gb, i would be much happy.

    since the new Honda accord uses the same engine as the civic turbo, which means bumping the civic turbo power from 170hp to 200hp is still ok as the engine can take the load.

    Stupid basher. Honda CVT problem was an issue of the past with startup clutch. For the current earth dream cvt, Honda has cleared his name with so many Honda City, civics running on the street. Have you heard any current city broke down with CVT issues, guess not. Do some research before bashing la. Basher also need to improve quality.

      Funny fellow. One called me honda fanbios another called me proton basher.

      Thanks guys, you just further reinforce the evidence that here are plagued by my guess Proton SA, Proton (geely bandwagon) fanbois. To my surprise, before Geely took over Proton, here were once filled with Proton bashers.

      Many complaints, perhaps, but I still have the same question to you guys. If x70 is priced as the same range as CX5 and CRV, I wonder what will the sales like?

    when a german turbo charge from the rear, all these good cars guai guai go back to the middle lane or suffer loss of self esteem if they even try to floor it. 1.5t churn out 200ps, even a mini base 1.5t just churn 136ps, not because bmw cant do it. they dont do it for a reason, reliability issue. too stress for the hardware, rough, and super turbo lag to achieve that number. By the time the lag over, you r smoking german dirt. good luck. a 318i at 198k before fleet discount 6% is much more attractive.

    If Accord selling price goes to around RM180k, the sales will be just like Camry, FAILED. From last 2 years, I only can spot 2 Camry here in Kelantan. People definitely will go for recon MPV if the price around 200k.

    1) Toyota Camry – 2.5 litre tax bracket

    2) 10th Gen Honda Accord – 1.5 litre tax bracket

    I like to hazard a guess here. The 10th Gen Honda Accord will be priced close to the 9th Gen top-of the-range pricing.

    “Like the ninth-gen facelift, the new Accord is equipped with the automaker’s Honda Sensing suite of safety features. Seven of these were seen previously – 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), while the Low Speed Follow (LSF) function has now been added to the tenth-gen.”

    Will be pointless if the said equipments are not made available to the Malaysian market. After all, luxury cars such as BMW can get away with it.
