Good info there. I noticed that they are called it the 'Euro Accord' vs the regular Accord. Pricing is right on top of one another although the diesel is missing. So we can expect only the diesel on the Euro Accord with 20+ pricing. I think it will be Honda only and not Acura. Acura is for US/Can only.

Now that's what is called an excellent scoop. I am sure they will not launch Acura here in the near future. They might just call it something else or an Accord 'something'. All Acuras are a bit more aggressive/smarter looking as compared to regular Hondas. All Hondas look better than corresponding Toyotas

Very true abhi. I love Acuras. Sharp, angular, but not devoid of muscle. If Acura is launched in India, maybe assembled in that new plant Honda opened in Rajasthan...

Man, that'll be awesome!

This is the accord that should be sold here. Not that bulky,ugly looking thing they've just released as the new accord.

I think we are all getting a bit too excited here. That Euro spec Accord is a property of Honda Siel Cars. I have seen it parked in their compound along with previous generation Jazz, Odessey etc.

These cars may be used by the R&D as test beds, but these are also used to transport Senior Honda officials from Noida to the Airport and Vasant Vihar where they have guest houses.

Chances of the Euro spec Accord coming to India either as a Honda or an Acura can be ruled out IMHO.

the accord shown on page one has a dual exhaust... however ... from the looks of the picture posted on this page- it looks like its got just a single exhaust.
