|Honda Accord SE Coupe 1993|
Mobile Review | Honda Accord SE 1993, 10th Anniversary Edition Accord in the US | In 1993, Honda introduced the 10th Anniversary Edition sedan to commemorate the 10th year of U.S. Accord production. The 10th Anniversary Edition was based on the Honda Accord LX sedan but came equipped with several features not available in the Accord LX trim. The upgrades included ABS, 4 wheel disc brakes, 16" EX coupe six spoke alloy wheels, body colored side moldings, chin spoiler, and standard automatic transmission.
Three colors were offered for the Honda Accord SE 10th Anniversary Edition: Frost White, Granada Black Pearl, and Arcadia Green Pearl. The 10th Anniversary models also included the same premium seat fabric found in Honda Accord EX models. The Frost White and Arcadia Green cars were paired with the same interior color as their Honda Accord LX/EX counterparts, Blue and Ivory, respectively. The Granada Black cars were paired with Gray interior, while the Granada Black EX had Ivory interior.
Honda Accord SE returned for 1993 as both a sedan and, for the first time since the 1989 Honda Accord SE-i, as a coupe. Honda Accord SE sedan featured dual front airbags; the first Honda Accord to do so. An 8-button, 4-speaker Honda-Bose audio system, automatic transmission, leather trim, body colored bumper and body side moldings were standard.
Honda Accord SE coupe included a factory rear wing spoiler which differed slightly in design from the already available dealer installed accessory rear wing spoiler. In Canada, the SE came with heated front seats and heated side view mirrors. Both the sedan and coupe received distinctive 15" alloy wheels as well. All Accord SE sedans in 1991 and 1993 were manufactured in Japan, while all Accord SE coupes were produced in the U.S. The 1993 sedan was available in two colors: Cashmere Silver Metallic and Geneva Green Pearl, both with Ivory interior. The coupe was offered with two colors as well: Cashmere Silver Metallic and Atlantis Blue Pearl, both again with Ivory interior. Sadly, 1993 would be the swan song for the SE as an exclusive, high content, limited edition Accord model. Later generations would use a "Special Edition" designation rather than the previously used "SE" designation. These models were a combination of an Honda Accord LX with several EX features similar to the 1993 10th Anniversary Edition LX.
At the end of the model life of the Honda CB Accord, a "pillared hardtop" model called the Honda Ascot Innova was launched in Japan, based on the Honda CB Accord chassis, but with a different, much more modern-styled body, taking cues from the 1992 Honda Prelude. - Mobile Review
