2020 Honda Accord Gets Turbo Power, Honda SENSING Tech for Just P 2.288M (w/ Specs)


Honda Cars Philippines is upping its game in the executive sedan segment by launching the all-new, 10th generation Accord. The 2020 Accord is the embodiment of everything that Honda stands for with its bolder styling, cutting-edge driver assistive features, and turbocharged power.

Built atop an all-new platform, the Accord is now lower and wider than its predecessor. Utilizing laser welding to join the roof and side panels, it boasts of increased rigidity while also removing the need for a garnish over the rain channels. The planted and sporty silhouette creates a more dramatic and aggressive presence. The upright chrome wing grille are sandwiched by headlights will full LED technology and LED fog lights. At the back, are C-shaped LED taillights contributing to a distinctive look, especially at night. At its four corners are 18-inch noise-reducing alloy wheels.




Inside, the Accord continues with its tech-savvy interior juxtaposed with premium appointments. For the driver, it has a two-part instrument cluster that combines a multi-info 7-inch TFT display with a traditional speedometer. To the middle, there’s Honda’s latest Display Audio System. With an 8-inch screen, it combines gesture controls with voice commands while also offering standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other standard features include: dual zone climate control, push-button start/stop, walk away auto lock, speed sensing door locks, and electronic parking brake with auto hold. And thanks to a lengthened wheelbase, there’s an additional 48 millimeters of legroom for the rear occupants.

For 2020, the Accord is available with a single powertrain option: the 1.5-liter i-VTEC Turbo putting out 190 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 243 Nm of torque from 1,500 to 5,500 rpm. The outputs are at par with the outgoing normally-aspirated 2.4-liter motor, but should provide for improved fuel efficiency and lower emissions. This engine is mated to a CVT transmission with the usual Honda Eco Assist System. Unlike other applications though, the Accord also has a Sport mode which sharpens the throttle and steering response as well. Paddle shifters are also standard.



Finally, the Accord joins the top-of-the-line CR-V in receiving the Honda Sensing driver assist system. This suite combines safety features including: Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow (LSF), Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), and Auto High Beam. In addition, it comes with 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors, LaneWatch camera, Straight Driving Assist, and a Multiview reverse camera with guidelines.

The all-new 2020 Accord is now available at all authorized Honda dealerships with a choice of three colors: Platinum White Pearl, Crystal Black, and Modern Steel Metallic. The price is at P 2,288,000.

  1. Comparing this to the Mazda 6 2.5L Turbo or 2.2 Diesel, the Mazda 6 wins either way. A more elegant package with a more powerful engine equipped with a conventional 6AT and not that soulless CVT. With the Yojin 3 and at 38k less than this Accord, lol.

  2. for just 2.288M.. nila-lang lang nalang ngayon yung 2M. but on a seriously note, Honda should have gone with the same engine as the Civic Type R. 2.0L Turbo and make a Honda Accord RS and a base variant with the smaller displacement engine, just like on other markets.

  3. Not really too much for the price, given the target market and what it's supposed to do. Sure, it's not as bulletproof as the Camry nor as fun as the Mazda6 (ARAY ANG SAKIT MGA MAZDAFANBOYS), but it's also a competitor, even if its exterior design for me sucks (ARAY ANG SAKIT MGA HONDAFANBOYS).
