New Accord Type S 180 Launched in Ireland

New Accord Type S 180 Launched in Ireland

26th September 2011
Honda Strengthens Accord Range for 2012
 
Universal Honda is pleased to announce the introduction of a new Type S 180 diesel option to the Accord range for 2012. The Type S 180PS engine is combined with a 6-speed manual transmission to maintain the high performance driving experience whilst improving the overall efficiency of the engine resulting in lower running costs.   
The exterior of the Type S 180, with its 18” alloy wheels and aero bumpers and side sills, has a sporty look that reflects what is under the bonnet. The car is equipped with a high beam support system with Bi Xenon head lights and active cornering lights.
Standard features include Leather upholstery and electrically adjustable heated front seats; advanced dual zone climate control linked to the satellite navigation system to detect the position of the sun and sets the temperature accordingly. Cabin noise has also been reduced through innovations that include a floating sub-frame structure with insulated carpets, all adding to an enriched driving experience.
‘The new Accord 2.2 diesel Type S 180 will appeal to the motor enthusiast who appreciates the bespoke styling, sophisticated safety features and high levels of specification which, unlike most competing premium brand products, actually come as standard. The Type S 180 model compliments the launch of the new Accord range in April this year and will help us achieve 450 Accord sales in 2012 ‘ said Frank Kennedy, Sales and Marketing Director of Universal Honda.
Type S 180 is combined with a 6-speed manual transmission and the chief aim of the engine and transmission development was to maintain the high performance driving experience whilst improving the overall efficiency of the engine resulting in lower running costs. Power output is at 180PS/32KW at 4,000 rpm while peak torque is 380Nm@2000 – 2750rpm. That means improved engine flexibility reflected in an 8.8 second 0-100 time and a top speed of 220km/h. Emissions are below Euro 5 levels and combined fuel consumption at 5.6l/100km is even more frugal. Equally CO2 emissions are just 147g/km.
Honda Accord has been voted No 1 in the family car category in independent surveys carried out by JD Power for the last two years in both UK and Germany.
