How It Looks -

The new Honda Accord Tourer's brochure asks you to 'erase any previous images you had of estate cars' and that is exactly what they have done. Honda's engineers have designed a bold and refreshing take on the boring estate car. The Tourer's distinctive shape has the familiar Honda family traits, moulded into a sweeping muscular body. The headlights dramatically swoop each side of the V shaped grille and fog lights have been incorporated into the front spoiler. The fluid lines of the Tourer are sleek and flow uninterrupted from the front to the back culminating in a curvaceous rear with boldly designed light clusters and dual chrome exhausts (standard on 2.4 models) for a more aggressive look.

How It Looks - Interior

Just as much attention has been lavished on the interior of the Tourer and the cabin is spacious and comfortable. The dashboard is simple yet functional and the overall ambience is calming. The switchgear is tactile and easy to use and the materials are of an excellent quality.

Our test car had Ivory leather seats and featured light wood effect trim. If this colour combination is not to your taste dark wood is available or aluminium look panelling for a more sporty look.

There is a lockable storage space under the boot floor this space has been freed up by replacing the spare wheel with the easy to use Instant Mobility System (IMS) which enables you to pump sealant into the tyre to re-inflate it.

The load space has a retractable load cover for added security whilst carrying large loads and tie down hooks. Both the driver and passenger seat backs have storage pockets.

The front armrest lifts to reveal a tray and a separate lever opens a deeper storage box whilst the rear armrest folds down to reveal two cup holders. The cup holders in the front are integral to the centre console and there is a lockable lit glove box.

The instrument panel is bright and highly visible, the dials are large and have white numbers and red needles. The speedometer is slightly raised and has a 3-D effect.
