Default Spotted: Brand New Honda Accord

This is the Euro/Japanese model. India gets the USDM model which is different. The car itself is supposed to revealed in Geneva next month:

Seems to have a fair amount of resemblance to the TSX. Might turn out to be a stunner!

I may be wrong but I think in europe TSX is sold as Accord. The newer ones look much better than TSX.

ummm .. I think this model of the Accord is already available in the middle east from the end of 2007 .. the looks resemble a 5 series BMW in some way .. the shape of the rear or something but its high on features and is really comfortable and loaded with gadgets!

No, you're correct, the last gen Acura TSX was indeed sold as the Honda Acoord in Europe & was even equipped with the 2.2 diesel engine. The US/Asia spec Accord was never introduced in Europe.

That was the case in japan as well. their accord is the tsx here. acura doesnt exist in japan. its just honda. even the rsx is honda integra and the acura rl is the honda legend in japan and else where too maybe.

I dun think so... this is how Accord is gonna be. Artist rendering, but still a natural evolution of TSX

That sketch is awfully old, but you'll still notice the photos above have the same angular styling and very similar lights.

well they just introduced the new model at the end of 2007 so im guessing it will be a while until the phase it out again .. it will most probably be on sale in the Europe market.
