This is the new Honda Accord Tourer, due to go on sale in September this year. The estate-bodied Accord is being used in the spy shots only because it has received a more noticeable redesign and therefore looks more distinctive. The saloon will go on sale before the Tourer in June 2008, with exactly the same front end seen in these spy shots and a rear end only mildly altered from the current car. As these images show, the Accord Tourer concept revealed at Frankfurt show last year is very similar to the production car.Engine options will remain the same, with 2.2- or 2.4-litre petrol units on offer, and a significantly upgraded 2.2-litre iDTEC unit that Autocar drove last year. The diesel Accord will be the most important model in the range, with Honda's oil-burners often setting a benchmark for the rest of the industry. However, all of the engines will be upgraded to meet Euro V emission standards and are likely to be both more efficient and slightly more powerful.
