To say the first of the Honda Accord Euro here in 2003 was a favourite Drive headquarters is a massive

It redefined the mid-size car market and gave everybody else a big in terms of making sure product was competitive.

Obviously, Honda had to be careful when it time to replace the original as there was a real risk the magic would be lost.

That didn’t happen, of and the Euro that was released in was, more or less, cut the same cloth as the original.

days, those same and 2009 Euros are starting to hit the market as the original owners up.

The second-gen Accord Euro is now hot property.

There are good for this, not the least of which is quality. While much of Australian line-up is built in these days, the Accord was still manufactured in Japan frankly, it showed.

The interior fit and was particularly impressive, but so was the rest of the way the was screwed together. Importantly, a Euro will still nicely made and feel

While we think of V6 engines as the powerplant for a car of this size, the Accord stuck with tradition by offering a four-cylinder instead.

But what an engine it With all the techno tricks could muster, the 2.4-litre cranked out 148kW of power and of torque. That’s not a whole lot than the car it replaced — is no surprise, since it was basically a engine — but it absolutely and worked well with the six-speed manual or the five-speed

The six-speed manual is quite a car to drive but most out there in fact, automatics.

Part of the Euro’s appeal is it’s a great size. deliberately kept the Euro’s down as it helped differentiate the car its bigger, wide-bodied stablemate, was also sold here and by a V6 or a less-powerful four-cylinder engine.

so, it was a slightly bigger car than the Accord Euro but it still had a feel that made it a mid-size car to drive.

Safety was well taken care of a basic package of six airbags, control and the full suite of technology.

The range-topping model got parking sensors and the navigation doubled as a reversing camera.

The only catch was that, it was quite a bit more expensive its main rivals.

The second-hand however, has smoothed that in the road a little and makes the even more compelling.

Two levels were offered: the Euro and the Euro Luxury. And than just a standard difference, Honda actually the Luxury version with suspension settings and tyres gave a better ride, is worth remembering when out what you want from purchase.

When it comes to costs, bear in mind the engine requires premium to perform at its best.

The VTEC in the engine also means a that hasn’t had each and one of its oil changes precisely when it have could be a problem the track.

The good news, however, is most Accord Euros bought new by private owners who their cars religiously. the service handbook should this theory.

Honda’s paint finishes could be a bit to match perfectly after a so make sure you look at the car in sunlight and ensure the car is, in fact, all one

And as with any car that’s so crammed convenience features and electronics, sure that everything opens and shuts does that.

Dynamically the top of its class

Five-speed auto good; manual rare, but good

engine was a real gem

No wagon

Pricier than the competition
