According to the UK Media Resource, Honda will be introducing a new and more powerful diesel Type S Accord during the 2009 Geneva Motor Show this March. The Accord addition is going to be sportier and higher-powered compared to the rest of the Accord line-up.
The Type S Accord will feature a revised turbo-charger, a 20% power boost from the standard accord model, an increased torque at 380 Nm at 2000 rpm and a 2.2 liter diesel i-Dtec engine.
Fans of Honda will also be quick to note that the Type S looks different from the rest of the batch. It’s based on a new design, with 18-inch alloy wheels and clear indicator covers. The model will be available in two body colors: Basque Red and Premium White Pearl.
There is no sticker price on the Honda Type S Accord yet, but as of now, the model will be available in either Saloon or Tourer body shapes. The type S will also be available in manual transmission.
