Designed to set a new benchmark for midsize automobiles, the seventh-generation Accord is fitted with a high-performance DOHC i-VTEC engine and offers world-class aerodynamic characteristics. The Accord Wagon's characteristic wing roof, based on the image of a diving peregrine falcon, was designed to impart a feel of freedom and solidity.
A powerful Accord Hybrid debuted for the 2005 model year, powered by a 3.0-liter i-VTEC V-6 with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) and Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid technology in the U.S.
In Europe, Honda’s acclaimed 2.2-liter i-CTDi 4-cylinder diesel engine debuted in 2004. In 2006, Accord was the first vehicle in Europe to offer Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS) – a system that maintains the position of the car in a lane by providing steering input when necessary.
