Honda Accord Saloon
  • 1. It’s designed with the business user in mind. It’s refined on the motorway, with virtually no wind- and road noise penetrating the cabin
  • 2. The fabulously smooth and flexible 2.2 i-DTEC is the pick of the range.
  • 3. The diesel models average 50.4mpg or 48.7mpg, depending on their power, while the 2.0-litre petrol does around 38mpg, and the 2.2-litre about 32mpg
  • 4. When it comes to emissions, the lower-powered diesel emits 148g/km, while the Type S produces 154g/km. The petrols produce between 168g/km and 209g/km
  • 5. Stereo issues and temperamental Bluetooth phone systems have all been mentioned, but the biggest reported concern is cabin trim and build quality
