If I didn't see the H on steering wheel, I would think it is a Bimmer. Where did Honda originality go?

I'll take Bimmer design for Honda money anyday. Reminds me a lot of our old 530xi which we could not afford in India but the Honda is a possibility at Rs. 16L.

Default Accord now officially announced.

The Accord has been officialy unvieled by Honda. Autoblog has the skinny. Looks good on paper - 3.5L vtec will make 273 hp and 250ft-lb torque. I assume a september launch for the US and going by past patterns - 6 months later in India? (Pretty Please Honda)

Is Honda doing to Accord wat Maruti did to ZEN

Compared to the radical shape of the 2003 accord which was a trendsetter this looks pretty plain.

And the interiors I would say they look almost Civicish. Have a look at teh dashboard curves on the left and right and the corner ac vents and the glove box.

Hey, whats up with the A-pillars? Won't that affect visibility, just like the SX4.
