2010 Honda Accord Adds New Features on Select ModelsÚpgrades include expanded application of Bluetooth and available new rear seat vents
Available as a sedan or a coupe, the Accord is designed to impress wîth a quality feel, engaging performance and accommodating technology.
The 2010 Honda Accord lineup receives new features on certain models wîth an expanded application of Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® to vehicles equipped wîth leather seating surfaces (previously exclusive to navigation-equipped models) and new rear seat ventilation ducts on Accord Sedan EX and EX-L models for more-direct rear passenger airflow. Subtle modifications include graphically optimized climate control buttons and the addition of a trunk roof lining on Accord EX models.
'The Honda Accord offers something for a diverse range of people seeking anything from a comfortable family car to an aggressive coupe wîth looks and power,' said Erik Berkman, vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. 'The feature changes to the 2010 Honda Accord elevates its appeal and supports a legendary reputation as a class leader for quality and customer satisfaction.'
The Accord Sedan's exterior expresses an upscale and powerful presence wîth a distinctive 6-sided grille, flared fenders and inset character lines sculpted into the sides of the body. Building on the sedan's design character, the Accord Coupe's unique muscular stance is highlighted by a longer hood, projector beam headlights and a sleek, lower-profile roofline.
Interior styling on all models seeks to provide attainable luxury wîth generous standard equipment, world-class ergonomics and intuitive vehicle controls. Available premium features include the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation1 System™ wîth Voice Activation and XM® Radio2 . The front seats are designed to provide generous lateral support and complement the Accord's sporty side. The fold-down, lockable rear seatback increases cargo-carrying versatility and also includes a lockable pass-through for long items like snow skis.
New for 2010, a more-contrasting 'lighter' gray color theme for the climate control buttons on all models helps to better differentiate the system controls in relation to nearby dark gray audio system buttons. Models equipped wîth the available dual-zone automatic climate control enhance the manual fan control override button to include on/off functionality wîth corresponding changes to the button graphic. For additional simplicity, the dual-zone activation button name changes to 'SYNC' from 'DÚAL.'

The performance-oriented Accord V-6 Coupe wîth 6-speed manual transmission exclusively has a 3.5-liter V-6 VTEC engine (without VCM, hence no 'i' in VTEC) that offers an exclusive valvetrain, intake and exhaust system that broadens the torque curve in the low- to mid-rpm range.
A 190-horsepower 2.4-liter, 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine is standard in the Accord Sedan EX, EX-L and Accord Coupe LX-S, EX and EX-L.

For safety, the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE®) is an exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal crashes. The ACE™ design utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This enhanced frontal crash energy management helps to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment and can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash.
The double wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension, a sophisticated arrangement for any vehicle, inspire spirited handling performance while also supporting a comfortable ride. The 2008 Accord Sedan comes standard wîth 16-inch steel wheels wîth wheel covers, or 16- or 17-inch aluminum wheels depending on the model.
Three audio systems are available – all wîth MP3/Windows Media® Audio (WMA) playback capability and an auxiliary input jack.

A Radio Data System (RDS) displays information broadcast by participating radio stations that often includes call letters, station type (searchable by genre) and programming information. Steering wheel audio controls come standard on every Accord. The Accord Sedan EX and Coupe LX-S add a 6-disc in-dash changer.
A premium 270-watt audio system comes standard on Accord EX Coupe and Sedan EX-L models, and includes a six-disc CD changer and seven speakers including an 8-inch subwoofer. XM Radio2 is standard equipment on all Accord EX-L models.

New for 2010, Accord EX-L models now include Bluetooth HandsFreeLink as standard equipment for connecting wirelessly connecting compatible mobile phones.
