the hybrid accord is launched in the us but it is hard to tell weather they eill launch it in india.
definetly go for the v6 accord and then call mugen. that would be ur best choice. or u can import a mitsubishi galant and mod it out. it is an excelent driver and has firm suspension and a powerful v6 than the accord.

Here's a site where you'll find all the modifications done my Mugen on a Accord V6.

Mugen Accord V6 Click on the link typed in red letters. (On the site)

Here's another concept race version of the Accord V6. This really makes the car look sporty and can help you with body kit ideas.

1 year ago, that statement would have been believable but today, the Accord has all the "beast" you can find.

The Accord has proved to be faster in each n every performance test. The Mondeo will need a big boost in power to match it.

Now that Honda has released the CR-V with a M/T, it won't be long before the Accord V6 gets that upgrade too. And when that happens, all hell is gon'a break lose.

I doubt it. Even in the US (We have the American spec Accord), Honda sells the V6 sedan ONLY as an automatic. The Coupe, however, is available with a delicious 6 speed manual.

Yup, in the US it comes only in the coupe form. but you never know, what if they plan to plonk a M/T in the sedan version too. Wont that be a stunner on the roads??
