Honda Accord Euro Luxury (2012)

by John Ewing,reviewed February 2012

The Accord Euro, always one of the brighter lights in the mid-size car scrum, received some upgrades last year for model year 2012.
Inside and out there’s minor cosmetic changes, while equipment lists lengthened with the addition of USB connectivity, steering wheel integrated bluetooth, a fold-away key design and trailer stability assist for all versions.

It uses marginally less 95 RON fuel too.

Driving the updated Euro Luxury was like reacquainting with an old friend and re-discovering all the things you liked about them.

It’s well finished, while dynamics and steering still have real driver appeal. The iVTEC engine is a solid performer too. Typically Honda, though, its best is given at higher revs.
