Yep, that’s right. The seventh generation Honda Accord has been around since 2003, and it’s been popular all that time thanks to its sharp looks, precise build quality and a range that includes a diesel and an estate. There’s little that’s radically new about the Sport GT. It’s aimed directly at the fleet market and combines some of the equipment and trim of luxury versions with sports suspension and Honda’s 2.2-litre CDTi turbodiesel. Cosmetic tweaks extend to dark chrome door handles and front grille, attractively menacing graphite-coloured 17-inch alloys, a bootlid spoiler and smoked headlamps. There’s also an exclusive (optional) White Pearl paint finish. All of which means the Sport GT looks pretty slick, rather as an S-Line Audi looks sportier than the standard model without making promises it can’t keep. And, in spite of its age – the Accord is old by Japanese life-cycle standards – the Honda’s basic outline is still fresh and contemporary.
The ‘sports’ theme is taken care of with some carbon-effect panelling on the dash, centre console and door trim. The big story is more to do with the equipment level, which includes a voice-activated sat-nav system, Bluetooth telephone connectivity, premium audio with an in-dash six-CD changer, plus cruise and climate control. That’s a decent tally for a largish 20-grand saloon. Think BMW 320d and you’d be looking at the thick end of £10k more to match it.
