-- The upcoming Accord will mark 30 years of exceptional Honda manufacturing in the US. The Marysville Auto Plant started operations on November 1, 1982 with production of the second generation Accord and has produced over 9 million Accords since. Honda started shop in the US to “build products close to the customer”, not only did they directly bring jobs to the states they also buy extensively from the region. Honda’s parts purchasing has grown over $20 billion this year alone from North America, and totaling from over 500 suppliers in the US only. There seems to be no signs of slowing down as Honda ups its North American production from 1.63 to 1.92 million units by 2014. Allowing 85% of Honda and Acura products to be built in North America plants.
The 9th generation Honda Accord increases its fuel efficiency with a new 2.4 liter 4 cylinder direct injection engine paired with a new CVT, or you can opt for the new 3.5 liter V6 engine with 6-speed automatic transmission. Honda is also introducing HondaLink™ its new cloud based system that connects you to Bluetooth™ Streaming Audio, Pandora™ internet Radio, SMS texting functions and media from your mobile without the hassle of messing with your phone. As well as Aha™ a feature part of HondaLink™ that helps you find restaurants that may interest you, Facebook audio feeds, and many more functions from the audio interface. Many drivers will also look forward to safety features like the Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, and the highly innovative Honda-exclusive LaneWatch™ blind spot display.
