This not only allows us to break the barrier of 100 hp (HP bringing it to 101 to be exact), but also fuel consumption is improved as never before recording 29/40 (city/highway) mpg. ago and 12 kilometers per liter of fuel
With the introduction of the third generation Accord, Honda had been right. It was no longer the new kid in the neighborhood, the Accord it had the most successful sales that you receive from your previous 2 generations. Henceforth began a trend characterizing Accord: it models with increasing size, but with more sporty and dynamic look. Front and rear independent suspension was introduced, the vehicle height is lowered achieving better aerodynamics that resulted in it right: better development and performance.
Once again the engine is increased, this time to 2.0 liter 98 HP provided (in carburetted version) and 110 HP (in release injection). Also displayed a range of versions including a hatchback (Aerodeck) and a two-door coupe (the first Honda that is completely assembled in the United States on the ground of Maryland.
For 1990, the Accord once again received radical changes: The width and length were increased again, reaching 4.70 mtr passing long by 1.70 mtr wide and making the Accord a true midsize sedan. A wagon version was added to the range of models and appeared two new mechanics: the new 2.0-liter engine. now featuring 133hp (97kW) @ 5400 rpm and version 2.2 ltr. (2.156 cm3) featuring 155hp (110 kW) @ 5900 rpm. The automatic transmission was renovated with a mode that allowed select gears manually, making it one of the top models of that time.
