2010 Honda Accord Brings Few Changes to Its Best-Loved Model
Honda fans will be pleased to see so little change with the 2010 model of the Honda Accord. With a body that has not changed much since the 2008 birth of the eighth generation Accord, the 2010 model will see only minute improvements on an already near-perfect vehicle.
Seal of Approval
The reviews are in and the 2010 Honda Accord ranks exceptionally high for spaciousness and offering an upscale feel without the upscale price. The Accord’s resale value, too, keeps Honda buyers loyal to the model.
Super Safety Features
The Honda Accord is well known for its safety features. Its awards are a testament to its reliability and security. The 2010 model received several awards, including:
Edmunds’ Inside Line 2009 Readers’ Most Wanted Vehicle Award under $ 30,000
Yahoo! Auto’s Excelerator Award
Car and Driver’s 10 Best Awards
Kelly Blue Book’s Best Resale Value Award
The 2010 model offers many safety features:
Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
If, when driving your Accord you under steer or over steer, this system will get you back in control by braking individual wheels and reducing engine power.
Anti-Lock Disc Brakes
Now standard on Hondas, the ABS system with Electronic Brake Distribution helps you maintain control when braking hard.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Underinflated tires are the cause of many avoidable accidents, so the Honda Accord’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System helps drivers by alerting them when tire pressure is under the recommended psi.
The 2010 Honda Accord offers more airbags than ever, with coverage on the front, front side and side curtain, as well as active front head restraints that prevent the whiplash.
Better for the Environment
Honda has been making great strides toward building more eco-friendly vehicles, and the 2010 Honda Accord is no exception. The Accord runs smoothly on regular unleaded gas, and Partial-Zero-Emission Vehicle (PZEV) technology that keeps emissions to a minimum. The Accord gets 31 miles to the gallon on the highway.
The one place the Honda Accord will show some necessary updates is in its features. Now, all EX-L models will include Bluetooth hands-free cell phone linking, whereas in the past only the EX-L models that had navigation systems offered Bluetooth.
Accord lovers who pay close attention will notice the interior trim is lighter gray to better offset against the dark gray buttons, and the dual-zone automatic climate control has been improved to be more user-friendly.
