Orders open for 2006 Accord

Honda’s new Accord is now available to order in the UK, available with new safety equipment which keeps the car in lane and a suitable distance from other vehicles.

It features Honda’s advanced driver assist system (ADAS), which consists of a lane keeping assist system (LKAS) and adaptive cruise control (ACC).

The LKAS system applies steering torque to ensure the Accord remains safely in the centre of a road lane. A tiny camera positioned near the rear-view mirror monitors the road markings and steers the car if it drifts toward the edge of a lane.

ACC uses a radar to measure the distance to the vehicle ahead. In addition to maintaining a set speed, as with conventional cruise control, ACC is also able to automatically regulate both the vehicle speed and its distance to the vehicle ahead travelling in the same lane.

The driving aids are available on the Accord ADAS model, a range-topping version of the 2.4 EX with automatic transmission.

The Accord can be ordered today, and will be in Honda showrooms from March, priced from £17,030 to £25,880.
