G-Force Control Technology for New Honda Accord

The new Honda Accord is a major advancement in the transportation industry. Although released earlier in some parts of the world, the new Accord has finally arrived in Malaysia. The latest Accord in Malaysia is no different than the models released in other parts of the world. What are so great about the new Accord are the innovative technologies that have improved the power output, increased fuel efficiency and better safety features. Among the technologies that have brought the Honda Accord Malaysia to the next level are the Variable Cylinder Management (VCM), the Honda Accord with G-Force Control Technology and the all new Accord Advanced-6 Airbag System.

The Honda Accord Malaysia comes in 3 variants. The first is the 2. 0 liter i-VTEC engine, the 2. 4 i-VTEC engine and the 3. 5 liter i-VTEC V6 engine. The first two mentioned engines provide a balance between performance and fuel consumption. The 3. 5 liter i-VTEC V6 engine uses the Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) technology. What this means is that the engine operates a different amount of cylinders for different conditions to achieve the perfect balance between fuel usage and power output. For example, for an uphill journey, more power is required. Hence, engines with VCM will use all 6 cylinders to deliver the maximum power. Similarly, if the journey is mostly on cruise, then the engine would only use less than 3 cylinders to conserver petrol.

Honda Accord with G-Force Control Technology is another great feature added brilliantly by the engineers of Honda. The G-Force Control Technology is developed to control the crash energy when the car crashes. The major part of G-Force Control is the Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure. Unlike its predecessors, this new body structure doesn't focus the crash energy on the two side rails but instead disperse the impact over a larger surface. This helps to reduce the cabin intrusion during a crash. Honda has also included a feature for the pedestrians. The Honda Accord Malaysia 's hood and fender brackets are designed to deform upon knocking into a pedestrian.
