CarDekho Verdict

The current Honda Accord is possibly the best-ever iteration of the nameplate, but it’s direct Thai-import results in an exorbitant price tag. However, Honda is trying to cover it with the Accord’s more advanced hybrid powertrain, compared to the Toyota Camry Hybrid, which is its sole competitor, along with all of its latest global tech such as the LaneWatch, and others. 

"The Honda Accord arguably makes up for its exorbitant pricing with the most advanced hybrid powertrain in its segment and all the gizmos it offers. "
