Default The next Accord.....hopefully!!

Unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show, the Honda Sports 4 Concept is said to be the platform, on which the new Accord will be designed.

After watching Honda launch the Civic with looks as radical as those, it's not very diff to imagine that they might shock the motoring industry, yet again.



This car also showcases Honda's SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) technology, seen on the production version of the Acura RL.

Wow. Amazing looks for the concept. Even if they tone it down for production it should still be an eyecatcher.

Great Looking car! Looks very European. Even if it's watered down for actual production it will still look good. Honda is coming out with some really exciting designs. This is something Toyota needs to learn!

It's said that, when Toyota saw the new Civic, they had to go back to their drawing boards since the Corolla they'd designed for a future launch, was already looking outdated, in comparison.

Did you guys notice something.....no door handles!!! They're integrated into the B and right before the C pillar.

The Civic hatch too doesn't have a rear door handle (makes it look like a 2 door).

Yup, and i'm pretty sure there's one more on the other side...just like on the Civic.

Those small black thngs at the base of the A pillar are the side view mirrors. Look more like side view cameras. Who knows, a concept has no limitations.

Yuck! Though I like the muscular stance of this car, whats with the star wars light treatment all around?

I dont like what Hondas doing with the lights. Even in the current Honda Accord, I hate the edgy headlight design. It may have flash but it certainly is not a classic design like the 1994 - 1998 gen American Accord.

The car looks rubbish,especially the rear which looks like the biggest butt in the world.The car is too broad and muscular for that short height.It definately needs to visit the gym ASAP.

[SIZE=2]Im surprised to see some yucks here!!! really... I think the car looks super flamboyant. We shouldnt forget this is a concept car firstly... This car would be used only as a blueprint and may be a little more. This is probably one of those cars which look rich and sporty both. My only grevience wuld be that the head lamps dont quite go with the body lines due to its unique shape and colour and the vintage feel to the front grill, makes it look ultra modern. The tail lamps are contrasting with body lines , this designing I think is futuristic.[/SIZE]
