Exclamation Honda unveils 2013 Accord coupe concept

Looks great except for those outlandishly large front fog lamp LED casings.

Didn't really like it, feel the current accord does not lend itself to a coupe design varient.

The proportions are just not right. But then that is my take and I would not be a prospect for such a vehicle even abroad.

Wouldnt be caught dead anywhere near it. The accord sedan is stately, not sporty by any sort of imagination. Trying to transform it like this, well, best of luck honda.

Precisely my thought too.

But I've a feeling the look will eventually grow. It is not bad but just slightly disproportionate.

But yea, they really need to do something about the fog lamp casing.

Designs talks nothing new!! I feel the previous generation (the one with arrow sharp headlights) was the best looking Accord! This looks just like another new unexciting model, looks very boring and you get tired looking at it pretty fast! If a TATA Nano can wear some unique clothes, why cant Accord get some trendy clothes?

Now Honda is going the VeeDub, Hyundai way with generic looks creeping in from City to Civic to Accord.

All around the current one looks way better then this one. On top of that a accord coupe is as bad as it gets.

Something wrong in Honda, they are going crazy with designs.

To me the design looks very similar to the current gen accord except for the new detailing on the headlamps and tail lamps. Its more of an evolution than a revolution.

Previous gen was good - Current one is OK - This one is out of this world.bad.

Did they recruit any Hyundai designers recently? Look at that side profile, I can see some fluidic inspiration!!

This is the coupe version and the four door Sedan could look more proportionate IMHO.

this looks good in an absolute terms but is way too similar to the current generation Accord. isn't Honda supposed to come up with a new design for 2013 generation change? they seem to have lost their creative edge, first they faced a lot of criticism for new Civic and now they come up with this as new Accord (a concept though, yet)? this just looks like a refresh (major refresh though) to the current gen.

Guys the Accord coupe is already on sale in the US & this concept looks merely like a minor facelift http://automobiles.honda.com/accord-coupe/. Only the bumpers, headlights & few stuff are new rest all is same like the current coupe.
