Honda is readying its next Accord for introduction to the American market. However, the European version, which is destined for South Africa, could perhaps make its appearance this year too.

Also, although there will be design similarities between the American and European versions, the latter will have a chunkier look.
The overall size and shape will be similar to that of the Accord concept coupe shown at this year Detroit show.
The all-new Accord will look more aggressive than before. It will feature a more squared-off shape and a prominent trapezoidal grille.
Typical Honda the engines for the Accord will produce more power while emitting less emissions using less petrol. Expect a range of new VTEC engines too.
A coupe model is in the cards too.
