The new Honda Accord was launched in April 2003 with the 'cog' advertising campaign which featured various components of the car being used to construct a beautifully complex domino effect - a giant game of cog nudging cog, walking windscreen wipers and rotating panes of glass - ending with 'Isn’t it nice when things just work?'.
With the ever growing demand for diesel fuel economy Honda introduced the new 2.2 i-CTDi diesel engine - the first to be fully designed and developed in-house by Honda. The new diesel powered Accord has proved a phenomenal success with fleet managers and private owners alike and sales are guaranteed to go from strength to strength.
The new Accord is available in Sport, Executive and Executive Sat Nav trim levels with prices ranging from £18,900 to £21,900. A 5-speed manual gearbox is standard and disappointingly an automatic option is not available on the diesel model.
When developing the new Accord diesel Honda asked the question 'could you ever love a diesel?'. We tested the Accord 2.2 i-CTDi Executive to answer that question.
