blogentry-133713-0-89440400-1500102250_thumb.jpgHonda has unveiled its all new Honda Accord for the American market. It is set to go on sale in September with turbocharged engines.


Featuring a face similar to the Civic, the new car has a sportier and lower roofline, making the car look much sleeker than before. Seems like Honda is staying away from the usual three-box sedan design and is giving its sedans the trending fastback look a.k.a Audi's A7 and BMW's 6 Gran Turismo.


blogentry-133713-0-37996500-1500102257_thumb.jpgInside, drivers will find a new three-spoke steering wheel, new soft-touch instrument panel and and an 8-inch Display Audio system with physical knobs for tuning and volume. Seats are said to be new too with more deeply padded arm rests and taller shoulder bolstering for additional support. Rear passengers will get to enjoy almost two inches of extra rear seat legroom.


Teck geeks will be happy to find a new 6-inch head-up display and wireless smartphone charger in the car.


blogentry-133713-0-15570300-1500102259_thumb.jpgMeanwhile the keener owners will be be treated with a turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine that develops 192bhp and 260Nm of torque and will be paired with a continuously variable transmission. A 2.0-litre turbocharged unit with 252bhp is available with a new 10-speed automatic but it is unlikely to make it to our shores.


Thanks to a lighter and more rigid body structure which uses ultra-high-strength steel, the new model will weigh between 50 to 80kg lesser than before. The car is also said to have a lower center of gravity, making it better to drive than before.

Designers are taking the easy way out. Uncanny resemblance to the Civic.


Honda seems to be following in the footsteps of Mercedes Benz, whereby the C, E and S class look like the Small, Medium and Large version of one another.

not too sure if the Arteon from VW will be a better car then the Accord.

    Traffic Police bike gets into accident while chasing offender

    Now this is not something the residents of Ang Mo Kio get to see everyday! A Traffic Police officer has apparently skidded on the wet floor and crashed his Yamaha bike at the lift lobby of Block 619 Ang Mo Kio. As reported by SG Road vigilante, the incident happened on 27 May 2020 and eye witnesses claim that the officer was trying to chase another motorbike through the void deck when the police officer lost control and hit the wall. The comments by netizens were generally supportive of the officer going all the way in the fight for justice, with the usual few negative views here and there. 



    Crazy accident causes Nissan Qashqai to flip and more

    A Nissan qashqai was caught on video going out of control last friday in Bishan. As seen in the low-resolution video, the white SUV crashed through the fence and onto the wrong direction of Bishan Road while doing a flip and more. Thankfully, the lost of control of the car did not cost any lives. According to SG Road Vigilante, The 80-year-old driver and his 74-year-old female passenger were conscious when they were taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.   Obviously, there is going to be some negativity once the driver's age has been revealed... Thankfully there are some nice people out there that are more understanding...



    Mazda CX-5 caught in flood waters!

    Yes, we know SUVs are all what consumers today want. But as car enthusiasts, they are a no-no in terms of driving fun. Now, here's another example of why SUVs aren't as cool or tough as they look. As seen on SG Road Vigilante's page on 30th April, a Mazda CX-5 was spotted at Lorong Gambir going through a pool of standing water after the day's torrential rain. It all seemed fine and dandy until a photo of the car being towed away was featured. We have no idea how bad the car was damaged by the flood but judging from the photo, the bow wave created by the Mazda was pretty high and water could have gone into its intake system, causing some internal damage. We hope that is not the case and that it is just some electrical issues that caused the car to be immobilised.  We also hope the older generation Silver CX-5 that was in one of the photos survived the flood too!

    Honda Stream gets Covid-19 slammed out of it by BMW 6 Series at Changi Village

    This accident happened at Changi Village hawker centre carpark. You can watch the full video of the accident below courtesy of Roads.sg (if you haven't already seen it)   What’s happening Honda Stream exits the carpark and attempts to make a right turn on a two-way road. The driver seems oblivious to the fact that there's a stop sign and inches the car onto the main road. The Honda Steam driver then jams the brakes and in less than a second, what looks like a BMW 6 Series crashes into it. Hard. Different points of view If you replay the video, you'll notice that even after the crash, there were no cars that went past on the other side of the road. Meaning, the Honda Stream had more than enough time and space to avoid the accident. Jam break for what? The driver also ignored the stop sign and failed to do proper checks before moving off. On the other hand, based on the sheer force of impact, the BMW was going pretty fast too. What the people say This sounds legit. I think it's the Honda Stream driver's fault. The BMW driver sway balls. Also, there's a lesson here people - Stay the #$%& at home.
