Honda hints at the next Accord
6 December 2006

This is the look of the next Honda Accord – or at least, it’s a damn good hint at it.

To be shown at the Detroit motor show in January, this coupe concept is said to give a strong clue to the lines of the next Accord.

If that's true, then Honda could be about to take its mid-range big-seller into the same 'radical design' territory as the Civic.

But before you storm down to your Honda dealer with your chequebook, a few notes of caution. Firstly, the production model is likely to feature toned-down styling. Secondly, Honda has already stated that the current Accord will ‘remain unaffected throughout 2007’, which means it could be mid-2008 before you the concept-influenced version hits showrooms.

And thirdly, if there is to be a coupe version of the Accord, we’d be surprised if it made it to UK shores anyway…
