Greater Noida: Carmaker Honda Siel Cars India on Thursday launched an advanced version of its premium sedan Accord with a 3.5 litre i-VTEC engine, priced between Rs24.8 lakh and Rs25.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The new car would be available in two variants — Accord V6 3.5 and Accord V6 3.5 Inspire — and comply with Euro IV emission norms.
The company, however, expects that the demand for the old Accord would be higher than the new one.
“We expect the sales of earlier version of Accord with 2.4 litre engine in higher numbers than this new Accord,” Honda Siel Cars India (HSCI) vice-president (marketing) Jnaneswar Sen said.
The existing Accord comes with a 2.4 litre engine that generates 180 horsepower. The price of the car starts at Rs16.72 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The company, which is present in India through a joint venture with the Siel Group, claimed that the new Accord would give a mileage of 10 km per litre as per Automotive Research Association of India conditions.
