wow! now that's great news! The previous V6 was one helluva performer and serious competition to the Superb. This time too, the launch of the V6 might coincide with that of the new Skoda Superb.Watch out for the battle!

My GF simply loves the Accord. And it is indeed a great news! I too love it in darker shades.

I dunno. I, personally, was not at all impressed with the previous 3L V6 with ~220 hp. The lack of a manual gear box was a big downer and it really didn't FEEL like a 220 hp car ought to have felt in terms of outright performance. It drank fuel and didn't really go the way it ought to have, given the fuel consumption. Hope the new one changes that.
