This is the Honda Accord Coupe Concept, which showcases upcoming styling and technology changes to the current model, which is sold in the US but which won’t be coming to Europe.
The Coupe is actually longer and heavier than the saloon, which will also be updated in the US this year. It will be sold with two new engines: a 2.4-litre four cylinder with a six-sped manual or CVT transmission, a 3.5-litre V6, linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.
During the unveil at the Detroit motor show Honda also confirmed that it will sell a plug-in hybrid version of the production car, which goes on sale later this year. It will havea 15-mile electric only range or run as a hybrid linked to a 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle engine. Recharging from a 240 volt socket takes 1.5 hours.
Safety kit enhancements will include a lane departure warning system, a blind spot warning system and the option of a reversing camera.
