Under the hood, the 2019 Honda Accord or Accord Modulo is powered by two motor options. The outgoing 2.4-litre naturally-aspirated gasoline engine now comes replaced by a new 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol version combined with a 2.0-litre hybrid powerplant option. The brand new turbo-petrol motor coupled with a CVT transmission unit can churn out the output of 190 horsepower, which gives away a surge of 17 horsepower over its predecessor. The 2.0-litre hybrid comes to produce a max power of 215 horsepower. In Thailand, the 2019 Honda Accord is available with three variants: the Turbo EL for Rs 32.68 Lakh, the Hybrid for Rs 35.93 lakh and the Hybrid Tech for Rs 39.20 Lakh
