honda accord facelift

Coming to Malaysia, can the 2021 Toyota Camry facelift beat the Accord?

The D-segment sedan market is not as huge as before but it is synonymous with 2 models for nearly 30 years. The Toyota Camry and Honda Accord are dubbed the “towkay-mobiles” with the Camry generally seen as the ultimate uncle car between the two. However, the latest Accord has grown to be more mature and comfort-oriented while the current Camry has become sportier. Eh? What has the world come to? With Toyota launching the facelifted Camry for the American market back in June, we predicted that t

2020 Honda new models – Accord, City, and more for Malaysia!

Surprising as it may sound, Honda Malaysia launched only one new model in 2019, which was the facelifted Honda HR-V. That marks quite a drop, considering that Honda Malaysia was rather aggressive with new product launches back in 2017 and 2018. The reason is due to delays in pricing approvals by the government, which not only delayed products from Honda, but other manufacturers as well. Pay BMW money for an Accord?

Honda Accord vs Honda CR-V; which car better suits your needs?  

Honda Malaysia welcomed the tenth generation 2020 Honda Accord with a starting price of RM 185,900. Even after the recent price increase, the Honda CR-V’s range topper, 1.5L TC-P, is still priced below the base spec Accord 1.5L TC at RM 175,900.

Sejarah Honda Accord: Kejayaan yang menerajui pasaran Honda di dunia

Sebelum era 70-an, Honda pernah mempertimbangkan untuk mengundur diri daripada dunia automotif kerana permintaan tidak memberangsangkan.

Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry vs VW Passat – Which is best for you?

The D-segment sedan class of vehicles is undergoing a transformation of sorts. The people that used to buy such cars, the colloquially termed ‘uncles,’ have since migrated to SUVs. The ‘uncles’ who would have otherwise have bought a Honda Accord or a Toyota Camry, are now buying a Honda CR-V or Mazda CX-5 because today's SUVs offer comparable comfort, space, and fuel economy to a sedan, while an SUV's taller seating position is a lot easier for older drivers to get in and out of.

The Type R is a legendary badge. Originally focusing on minimizing weight and maximising performance potential, the Honda Type Rs often represent the ultimate form of the regular cars they are based on (with the exception of the NSX which was beyond a regular car). Ever since the first Type R badge was placed on the NSX in 1992, it has been on a grand total of 4 cars which are the NSX, Integra, Accord, and Civic. Only the Civic Type R is still in production.
