        ADVANCED
        IN EVERY WAY
        How advanced something is depends
        on how you view it; a key principle
        Honda’s engineers considered when
        designing the new Accord. At first
        glance, many will see a wider, lower
        car, while our engineers see improved
        aerodynamics and stability. This is
        because every aesthetic advance has
        a fundamental engineering objective.
        Take the sleek lines flowing from the
        headlights to the wheel arches; all
        part of an aerodynamic design that
        significantly reduces nose and tail lift
        to improve the Accord’s overall
        balance. And we didn’t stop at the
        exterior. Once behind the wheel you’ll
        notice how quiet the cabin is, through
        a combination of improved
        aerodynamics working in tandem
        with high quality sound deadening
        materials throughout the body
        structure. It’s exactly this balance
        between looks, performance and
        technology that makes the new
        Accord a truly advanced driving
        experience.

        THE VALUE OF

        Experience is a quality Honda           features to the refined suspension.
        engineers and designers bring           But at Honda we have always believed
        to every project. We believe that       that things work best in unison.
        our experience means we have the        Individually these technologies are
        knowledge of what is needed             state-of-the-art, but the way they have

        This vision has resulted in Honda’s     advanced driving truly is.
        philosophy for manufacturing cars
        that are always more than the sum
        of their parts.

        The Accord incorporates some of our
        latest engineering developments, from
        an improved chassis to the powerful

                                   DEVELOPING SAFETY
                                   To ensure we remain at the forefront
                                   of safety technology, we built the
                                   world’s first multi-directional crash
                                   test safety facility. The results of
                                   rigorous testing and analysis have
                                   all been applied to the new Accord.
                                   The Advanced Compatibility
                                   Engineering (ACE) structure of
                                   the car is made from 42% high
                                   tensile steel, which disperses
                                   energy away from those inside.
                                   And the high rigidity body forms a
                                   stronger protection zone in the
                                   event of a collision, protecting you
                                   from the force of an impact.

25 26 ADVANCED SAFETY

                        SAFETY IN CONTROL
                        A car with impressive looks and
                        performance should have equally
                        impressive safety features. Large
                        rear brake lights ensure those
                        behind you have clear warning of
                        your actions. Unavoidable impacts
                        trigger a series of safety features to
                        help keep you protected. Front and
                        side airbags are controlled by an
                        intelligent Supplemental Restraint
                        System (SRS) which recognises
                        where the impact has occurred,
                        and inflates those airbags required
                        to give you all round protection.
                        We’ve also thought about who may
                        be sitting in the passenger seat.
                        Airbag deployment can be adapted
                        to give maximum protection for
                        children in a child seat, giving you
                        even more peace of mind.

                        Three-point Emergency Locking

                        load limiting pre-tensioners
                        tighten to limit body movement.
                        Active head restraints move
                        forward on rear-end impact to
                        support the neck area, reducing
                        whiplash. In addition, safely hidden
                        from view in the rear child seat
                        anchor mount is a lock to gain
                        access to the boot space in case of
                        emergencies. Simply insert the
                        main ignition key, turn, and the

Soichiro Honda once said, “Think for yourself and don’t follow in other people’s footsteps.
It’s a sentiment that has allowed us to explore some of the most advanced and radical ideas in modern engineering. It’s the thinking that has
taken us from building affordable motorbikes to winning Grand Prix and building emission free cars. But, perhaps more than anything, it’s
the reason why we believe in the Power of Dreams.
Because of our sporting heritage, we knew road cars built with performance technology required higher standards of safety. To achieve
this we constructed the world’s largest crash testing facility and harnessed what we’ve learned from ASIMO, one of the world’s most
advanced humanoid robots, to refine the innovative technologies found in our cars.
