Honda Malaysia today announced that its Next Generation Advanced Safety Technology, Honda SENSING will now be available in the new Accord 2.4 VTi-L.
The launch marks the second model in Honda Malaysia’s product line equipped with Honda SENSING, following the introduction of the Honda CR-V. The 2.4 VTi-L Advance with Honda Sensing will carry forward the same premium features that are currently available in the outgoing model which we have tried and tested including LED front and rear lights, 7-inch Advance Display Audio with i-MID that’s Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible along with Honda’s LaneWatch technology.
The Honda SENSING technology in the Accord 2.4 VTi-L, like the CR-V, includes Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).
In other news, sales of the Accord surpassed more than 5,500 units sold since it was launched in September 2016. The 2.4 VTi-L variant alone contributed to 25% of that figure, with the 2.0 VTi-L accounting for 61% and 14% from the 2.0 VTi variant.
As such, Honda Malaysia will be offering only two variants of the Accord from November 2017 onwards – the 2.0 VTi-L at RM 149,350 and the 2.4 VTi-L Advance with Honda SENSING at RM 169,800.
Honda Malaysia has recorded impressive sales performance this year with more than 87,800 units sold from January to October 2017. The Sport Hybrid models, the Jazz and City, have recorded more than 1,860 bookings in just five months.
Aside from anticipating the launch of the all-new Honda Civic Type R, which will take place really soon, Honda Malaysia looks to achieve its 100,000 unit sales target by the end of this year.
