Honda Cars India is yet to confirm the launch date of the ninth-generation Accord.

Unveiled in its facelifted form at the Auto Expo, the ninth-gen Accord will be available in both petrol and hybrid variants. The Accord hybrid combines a 2.0L Atkinson Cycle i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine with two electric motors and a 1.3 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery. It produces a max output of 215 hp and capable of averaging a fuel economy of 23.8 km/L (not ARAI-certified) and carbon emissions of only 99 gram/km.

Competing as a full-size sedan from a mass-market car manufacturer in India, the Accord is expected to be loaded to the brim with equipment. Expect features like a 7.7-inch infotainment system, separate touchscreen with Apple CarPlay support, rearview camera, Active Cornering LED headlamps, Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS) and six airbags.
