Very subtle differences from the existing accord. The grill is not visible but looks on the lines of ANHC

I can't even spot the subtle differences in this one! Probably a nose job?

If the front head lights are based on the Accord Crosstour, then it is fine to great extent.
I prefer the butch yet suave front looks of the Crosstour, to existing model's front-end.

Even the headlights look pretty much the same. It could be a slightly different grille. And I don't think this facelift is actually meant to freshen it up. It could probably be something to do with new pedestrian safety norms for all you know!

this is how it will look like-a yawning face lift. Rear design still does not gel well. looks way too outdated especially next to YF Sonata.

The present Accord looks much much better then this Accord. It looks very understated. Why spoil a car which already looks good ?

Outdated?? Not at all. An OK looking car but outdated? Not by a looong shot.

Somewhere I see a Korean touch to the car's design . The current/previous gen accords were much better looking.

I guess Honda will plonk in more complicated electronics to raise the price.

Dil se dard! But isnt it oh-so-painfully-true? Honda seems to get away with murder when it comes to pricing. I personally just looove the cars, but damn arent they overpriced!

The Accord, CR-V and Civic are all busted to varying degrees. Far cry from the days when every single Honda model was the leader in its class. Its only the City which is keeping Honda happy today, and I am sure even its sales will crack by half if VW manages to support the Vento well. Thats a big 'if' though, going by the shoddy Polo launch.

The pic has been clicked at an angle from which we cannot really comment on its look.

The grill looks like a bling chinese flavored all chrome treatment.
