    Buying a New Honda Accord in Weston-super-Mare and Taunton

    Read all about the new Honda Accord, available here at Howards Motor Group. The Accord is available with a 2.0 or 2.4 litre petrol engine or a 2.2 litre diesel engine.

The Accord comes with either a 2.0 or 2.4 litre petrol engine or a 2.2 litre diesel. Of these the diesel cars are the most numerous and probably best all round option. The diesel engine pulls strongly throughout the rev range without ever becoming particularly unrefined. The bigger petrol engine delivers greater performance, but is noisier and more expensive to run. There is also a higher performance version of the 2.2 litre diesel badged as a Type S which comes at a significant price premium.

The interior of the older Accord has a more ergonomically intuitive lay outthan the newer car. However, the new model compensates with better quality materials. A possible drawback of the saloon version of the Accord is that it doesn't have the roomiest of boots. If load-lugging ability is a priority then the Tourer estate is worth considering. The old model Accord Tourer has a longer wheelbase than the current car giving even greater space.

In 2010 the Accord range received updates to the engine range which helped to significantly cut the vehicle's carbon emissions. In the case of the 2.0 litre petrol model this is enough to drop the car down a tax bracket.

The Honda Accord is reasonable in terms of running costs, but has a purchase price when new that pitches it towards the upper end of its rivals. Used Honda Accords have excellent residual values which should be factored in when you make your choice between this and other family saloons.

If you think an Accord might be for you then Howards Group have garages that specialise in Hondas in both Weston-Super-Mare and Taunton. Take a trip to your nearest retailer and get a feel for yourself what it's like to cruise down the motorway in a Honda Accord.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
