In-game descriptionEdit

This description is taken from the PAL version of the original Gran Turismo:

The current Accord, launched in 1993, is only available as a 3-number body. The styling of the 4-door saloon exudes Honda's unique sportiness. There is a choice of three engines, the most interesting of which is the 2.2-litre inline 4-cylinder DOHC H22A VTEC engine fitted in the SiR. Its specifications of 190 PS / 6800 rpm and 21.0 kgm / 5500 rpm transform the Accord into a wonderful sports saloon. It is available with 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Suspension is 4-wheel double-wishbone. The SiR has 4-wheel disc brakes, sporty rear wing and 205/55 R15 size tyres. The Accord's VTEC engine turns round very smoothly in all ranges. Accord is thus packed with great potential and very sporty for a saloon. If you can fully extract that potential it will give you an extremely rewarding drive.

TriviaEdit
