The headlights remind me of the Hyundai Sonata.

I agree it does look like the current Sonata. First Hyundai stole the accord's back and now honda is stealing the front end... Tit for Tat

Btw where did u get the mid 2008 launch date in India from?

Hate it! Honda could have done a much better job.

Well, I was of the impression that Hyundai stole Accord's rear and Legend's front ends.

Seems Honda now wants it back.

IMO, the car looks good, but dont like the way the tail-lamps have been done in that blue car!

I think the front end resembles the Honda Legend much more than the Sonata.

Seen quite a number of new accords (not the 2008 one which is featured here) with LED tail lamps. The rest of the car hasnt changed. Anyone knows if the accords now come with LED tail lamps? I dont think its an aftermarket mod as all the new accords have this. Looks neat though.

Yes, they come with LED. The new 2008 though doesn't.

Accord V6 in full prod guise...... This actually looks pretty nice. If the V6 is still 17L in India, sign me up.

I hope they dont price it higher. Even though I feel Honda will.
But lets hope not as high as the Camry!

By the way the chrome handles look ugly and out of place IMO.

What is it with auto manufacturers and high shoulder cars these days? What happened to the good old days of low and lean sporty sedans with big rear windows and a low seating position.

I must say that I like the Sonata Embera more than this, atleast in terms of styling. Jeez.
