There’s no denying that the Honda Accord 2019 is an ageing product in Honda Malaysia’s line-up – it has been on sale since September 2013, meaning that the Honda Accord is roughly 6 years old now.

The Honda Accord was updated in 2015, when it received the refreshed exterior you see here. Honda Malaysia updated the Honda Accord again in 2017, with the 2.4 VTi-L Advance variant gained the Honda Sensing ADAS system.

What is the price of Honda Accord 2019?

Honda Malaysia has two variants of the Honda Accord 2019 on sale: the 2.0 VTi-L and 2.4 VTi-L Advance, priced from RM 148,512 and RM 168,998, respectively.

With these prices, not only is the Honda Accord 2019 the cheapest D-segment sedan money can buy right now, the range-topper 2.4 VTi-L Advance is also the most affordable D-segment sedan to offer ADAS features.

Both variants of the Honda Accord 2019 are fully loaded with equipment, including a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 6-speaker audio system with Active Noise Control, 6 airbags, Honda LaneWatch Camera, and powered front seats.

The Honda Accord 2019 2.4 VTi-L adds Honda Sensing, Active Cornering Lights (ACL), LED headlights, a Premium Sound System with a subwoofer, paddle shifters, and a powered rear sunshade.

Honda Accord 2019 Pros and Cons

Despite being one of the oldest models on sale right now, the Honda Accord 2019 still manages to offer segment-leading rear leg room, head room, and knee room. Rear comfort is further supplemented by a centre arm rest with cupholders and a retractable sunshade.

Being a Honda, the interior packaging and ergonomics are on point – storage spaces are aplenty and easy to reach, while buttons and controls are laid out in a logical manner.

Honda Accord infotainment

The Honda Accord 2019 is also compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, something which the more expensive Toyota Camry lacks.

While the interior may be a high point for the Honda Accord 2019, its powertrain definitely feels long in the tooth – never mind the turbocharged Volkswagen Passat, the Accord’s engines can’t hold a candle to the Mazda 6’s SkyActiv powertrains. 

But the Honda Accord 2019 is of course, a lot cheaper.

Furthermore, the 5-speed automatic found in both variants of the Honda Accord 2019 is dated, much like the engine. 

Although the range-topper Honda Accord 2019 2.4 gets Honda Sensing, it lacks the Low Speed Follow function that is available on the CR-V and upcoming Civic facelift.
