The wait may be over, but was it worth it?

At long last, the much-awaited 10th generation Honda Accord is now available in our markets for a price that has left many of you scratching your heads.

Perhaps the biggest tangible change lies in the exterior, where the Accord now sports a dramatic sloping roof line, leaving most of you to draw comparisons with Honda Malaysia’s best-selling C-segment, the Civic.

But there is more, and they’re beyond skin deep. It seems to us at least, based on the product presentation at the launch yesterday, the same amount of emphasis (if not more) was also placed on refining and elevating the ride quality of the car.

While its asking price may be steep, in fact, cementing that the D-segment could be a lost cause for more reasons that one, it’s still (arguably) justified in terms of value for money.

The rise of SUVs may have dampened the interest for such cars, including the once highly demanded Toyota Camry and Volkswagen Passat, but aside from not being able to offer a larger presence and taller (more superior) seating position, the Honda Accord does not lose out in the other departments.

But we’ll leave that to another day, for now, here’s what you should know about Honda Malaysia’s new flagship sedan.
