Those gadgets wont last and neither will the novelty with them, the Accord will last and last for long, you will never get tired of the electric smooth engine which loves to be revved and when you trade it in, you will see the Accord retaining maximum value.

The Honda Accord is to the US market much like the Alto here. In the US the Accord had been the best selling car in its class. Its also one the most stolen and preferred by car thieves in the US.

Skoda is a cheap brand in the west. In  India and some other upcoming markets Skoda's image is on a high and is a status symbol. In the western markets it as a notch lower than Volkswagen, its sibling. Its rare to spot Skodas in a parking lot in Germany, mainly the erstwhile West Germany.

I'd any day vie for the Honda Accord

The new one will have close to 171bhp compared to the 148bhp of the older one, either way you are always a winner with Accord but obviously the newer one will have more appeal.

Accord concentrates on giving you engine, not gadgets, gadgets don't make a car, a balaned engineering does. Accord is reputed across the globe for its butter smooth long life engine, excellent suspension and refinement. A car is not a video game or a toy, the less the gadgets, the lesser the breakdown. GPS is still in its infancy in India, not much coverage where its really needed and the service charges are still prohibitively expensive.

With its frequent upgrades Honda sales stay on top, the newer Accord has a different body styling not to mention a more powerful base as well as V6 model. I would not call the 2.4L older model a slouch in any sense and you might get huge savings when the newer model is launched and the dealer would do a clearence sale for older models.

The DSG Skoda L&K it's the only automatic with a better fuel consumption figure than the manual. That way your Skoda will be overflowing with kit; similarily if something goes wrong then it may be a wallet busting experience. Honda Accord is the bench mark as far as the D segment is concerned. Skoda and Accord are not in the same segment. Accord is one size larger and more powerful than the Skoda. In the Skoda you pay more for the toys than the car, in what is essentially a 105 bhp diesel car.

The diesel would be worth it at any price' date=' far better specs than Skoda and way more economical as well.[/quote'] You are right and if you fill in your Gurkha fuel then it will die slowlysmiley36.gif (slow poison).

If you mean regular fuel, the Honda is designed to run on pump grade diesel and unlike Bluetec, doesn't need any urea.
