Ford of Europe is releasing the most stylish and technologically advanced Ford Mondeo model ever. With a fresh, restyled look, an improved dashboard, plus new high-efficiency Ford Ecoboost petrol and Tdci diesel powertrains and a host of new driver convenience and comfort features and security technologies, the new Ford Mondeo completes the rejuvenation of Ford's big vehicle range, and takes its position as the main model in the company's European portfolio.
Following significant upgrades to the Ford S-MAX and Galaxy, the new Ford Mondeo is the latest Ford vehicle to benefit from the continuing evolution of Ford kinetic layout, with subtle visual differences incorporated into key areas such as the front and back end.
The Ford Mondeo dashboard has also benefitted from a powerful rework with changes to the centre control panel and door panels, plus a range of new, high class materials.
New Ford Mondeo will see the first application of a higher performance 240 PS derivative of the efficient new 2. 0-litre Ford Ecoboost turbocharged petrol motor, joining the existing 203 PS version of this motor, presented in Ford Mondeo, new S-MAX and new Galaxy early in 2010.
Set to go on sale in Mid-august of 2010, the 2011 Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe receive significant upgrades including enhanced fuel efficiency, improved look and dashboard look-and-feel and the addition of a new leather-equipped Special Edition (SE) trim level. Available as either a sedan or a coupe in 4-cylinder and V6 variations, the Honda Accord provides a original balance of style, performance, efficiency and value specific to every individual model.
For 2011, the Honda Accord evolves again with sharpened look-and-feel inside and out, fuel efficiency gains and a broader application of well-known features, explained Erik Berkman, vice president of Corporate Planning and Logistics for American Honda Motor Co. , Inc. The Honda Accord is developed to deliver a consistently rewarding ownership experience in the areas that matter most to sedan and coupe drivers.
Enhancments to car aerodynamics, motor friction and transmission gear ratios all contribute to fuel efficiency enhancments. The EPA fuel-economy ratings for Honda Accord 4-cylinder sedan models equipped with an automatic transmission enhance by 2 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 3 mpg on the highway, for a city/highway rating of 23/34 mpg.
The 2011 Honda Accord Sedan's look expresses a more upscale and comprehensive presence with a new style for the front grille, front bumper and back deck lid, along with a new wheel layout.
