Just as much attention has been lavished on the interior of the new Accord and the cabin is spacious and comfortable.

How It Looks - Interior

Just as much attention has been lavished on the interior of the new Accord and the cabin is spacious and comfortable. The dashboard echoes the swooping exterior nose design and the whole interior ethos is simple yet functional. The switchgear is tactile and easy to use and the materials are of an excellent quality.

Leather upholstery is standard on Executive models as is wood effect trim of either light or dark variation depending on interior colour choice.

Infotainment

Standard premium 6 CD tuner with RDS radio - front, rear and parcel shelf speakers with tweeters. Good sound quality with steering wheel mounted controls keeping your hands safely on the wheel.
