Honda Accord Hatchback
The Honda Accord is an automobile manufactured by Honda. First released in 1976 as a compact hatchback, the Accord has come a long way over the years. Not only has it grown in size to 162 inches in length, but it has also included a wide range of features, depending on the year and model.
First Generation (1976-1981)
The original Honda Accord was a two-door hatchback with 68 horsepower, a 93.7-inch wheelbase, and weighing around 2000 pounds. Its moderate size and great fuel economy making it popular with consumers. In 1978 an LX version of the coupe was added which came with air conditioning. In 1979 a four-door sedan was introduced, and the Accord's horsepower was increased to 72, with an option of a two-speed automatic. A third-speed automatic was introduced in 1980, along with an SE model with leather seats.
Second Generation (1982-1985)
The second generation Accord was first released in 1982. Redesigned with both interior and exterior changes, the car still contained the same 75hp, 1751cc EK1 CVCC engine, albeit with increased fuel economy. Honda also used a four-speed automatic transmission in automatic models, which was a big improvement over the previous three-speed Hondamatic. By 1984 Accords sold in the eastern US were being produced at the Marysville, Ohio plant. The body was restyled, and the slightly more powerful ES2 1829cc CVCC powerplant was used, resulting in an output of 86hp. Depending on the trim level, the car offered velour upholstery, cassette stereo, air conditioning, power brakes & steering, power windows, power locks, powered sunroof and roof pillar antenna, along with thick black belt moldings and integrated bumpers.
