The used car market is packed with different options, and it can be difficult to find the perfect vehicle. If you’re looking for a saloon that’s ready for both business and pleasure, then the Honda Accord 2.2 i-DTEC GT could be the perfect choice for you.
The Honda Accord is still a firm favourite with motorists, racking up an impressive 300,000-400,000 sales in America every year. However, the Japanese manufacturing giants will not be producing any more UK models. We should, therefore, expect an already popular product on the used car market to become an increasingly common choice over the coming years.
It doesn’t take much research to understand why the car stands out as one of the best options on the used saloon market. Here are three reasons why it will remain a firm favourite for years to come.
First and foremost, the chief purpose of any car is to safely transport you and your passengers from point A to point B. Feeling comfortable inside your vehicle is a must for any driver and the Honda Accord ticks that box emphatically.
Honda is still the most reliable car manufacturer on the market, and you can never go far wrong with any offering they produce. Whether using the vehicle for long work journeys or simply to drop the kids off at school, that added peace of mind goes a long way to making this the perfect used motor.
The car also boasts plenty of features like front and rear airbags, locking wheel nuts, and an advanced pedestrian safety system. In layman’s terms, you can’t get any safer.
Having driven this car on motorways as well as residential areas, it is safe to say that the 2.2L engine is more than suitable. It provides more than enough oomph to carry the Accord along with extreme comfort, without pushing your fuel economy through the roof.
Meanwhile, a quick step inside the spacious interior will confirm that this is the perfect size for both work and leisure. The Accord GT can easily accommodate a young family. Meanwhile, the sporty looking body is a huge hit with many motorists.
This truly is a great car inside and out.
One of the most important aspects of any major purchase is value for money. As a cheaper alternative to comparable models from other brands, the Honda Accord 2.2 i-DTEC GT ranks very highly on our list of great buys.
A 2011 model with just 80,000 miles on the clock will set you back around £9,000 from Carbase. You’ll be hard pushed to find a more stylish, reliable saloon for under the £10k mark. If you’re looking for a classy car that offers great value for money, you need look no further.
The fact production has stopped for the UK market should also make your car stand out from the crowd. What more incentive could you need?
Discontinuation can often signal the end, but we cannot see the Accord losing its popularity any time soon.
If you’re looking on the used market for an affordable, reliable motor with incredible safety features and the power to handle a combination of short and long journey, then this is the car for you. It’s not hard to see why it’s still so popular.
