Honda introduced the first generation of the iconic Accord way back in the year 1976. Originally, it was launched as a three door hatchback that featured a 68 hp engine.
However, Indians got a taste of the Honda Accord at a very later stage. It was in the year 2001 that Honda launched the sixth generation Accord in the Indian market. The Accord, as one of Honda's flagship vehicles nailed the sweet spot between luxury and driving enjoyment.
Such was the greatness of the Accord that the vehicle achieved approximately 600 bookings in just 2 months. A great figure considering those times.
In India, the sixth-generation Accord was short-lived since Honda debuted the seventh-generation Accord in 2003.
Honda offered the 2001 Honda Accord with three engine options - a 1.8 liter petrol, a 2.0 liter petrol, and a 2.3 liter (2354 cc) petrol engine that churns out 144 bhp of power and 200 Nm of torque.
It was available only with petrol engine options.

The 2001 Accord (sixth generation globally) was Honda's first large family sedan launched in the Indian market. Amongst Honda's flagship cars, the Accord really hit a sweet spot between luxury and driving pleasure.
The sixth generation Accord was short-lived in India, as Honda introduced the seventh generation Accord soon- in 2003. The new Accord was a big update over the previous model, and its V6 petrol engine was one of its major talking points.
The Honda Accord's latest update includes the reveal of the latest tenth generation of the Accord in Thailand. Honda is expected to bring the new Accord at a later stage to India.
The sixth generation Honda Accord was offered in a total of 6 variants in the Indian market. This includes 3 manual and 3 automatic variants: 1.8 MT, 2.3 VTI L MT, 2.3 VTI MT, 2.0 AT, 2.3 VTI AT, and 2.3 VTI L AT.
The Honda Accord was priced between Rs 15.75 lakhs ex-showroom to Rs 16.55 lakhs ex-showroom. It competed against rivals like the Skoda Superb, Toyota Camry, and the Ford Mondeo.
The Accord's exterior was simple, yet its sleek body style makes it look quite elegant.
The Accord's large exterior dimensions translate into a really great cabin space, both at the front as well as the rear.
The seats are generous, supportive, and offer a great deal of comfort.
The Accord had a really great ride and handling balance. The car handles bad patches of roads brilliantly, offering a plush and poised ride. At the same time, the Accord has mature and confidence assuring handling characteristics.
The sixth generation Honda Accord has proven to be incredibly reliable over the years.
Despite being one of the flagship Honda cars, the Accord has gone through quite a lot of cost cutting.
The interior of the Accord feels plain and basic.
The Accord had a bunch of quality related issues like flimsy door pads and stalks.
Despite being such an expensive sedan, the Accord doesn't even get alloy wheels.
The gearbox on the Accord is very unhonda like. It is quite slow to respond and ultimately ruins the performance that the engine has on offer.
The 2001 Accord was the flag bearer of luxury and driving pleasure for Honda in the Indian market. It was a large, comfortable, and fun to drive sedan. The Accord, with its plain and simple exterior design, looked sleek and elegant. The interior also had a unique charm, typical of Honda sedans at that time. However, build quality was something that let the interior down. When it came to driving pleasure, the Accord nailed it with its powerful petrol engines.
The 2001 Honda Accord was quite ahead amongst its rivals in terms of cabin space and comfort. In fact, its rear seat space was a match to the much more expensive Mercedes E Class. Furthermore, the Accord scores in terms of engine performance and ride and handling balance.
The 2001 Honda Accord had a mileage of somewhere between 11.1 kmpl and 11.9 kmpl depending upon the variant you choose. The petrol engine on the Accord is highly refined, loves to be revved, and offers great deal of performance. A major highlight of the Accord's performance is wide power band; power kicks even at very low rpms, making it extremely relaxed as well as fun to drive. In addition, the Accord's handling enhances the overall driving experience. However, what lets the car down is the notchy gearbox unit, which is quite slow to react and robs the driving fun.
The Honda Accord is ideal for people looking for a comfortable family sedan that is also a great deal of fun to drive. Honda's incredible reliability makes sure that your ownership experience is hassle-free.
