The 10th generation Honda Accord will make its global debut at an event in the Motor City on 14 July. Ahead of the reveal, Honda has released a teaser image of the car giving us an idea of what the front end will look like.
As expected, this rendering shows that the new Accord will sport Honda’s latest grille design which we have seen on vehicles like the new Civic as well as the WR-V. We can also see a new design for the headlights, which is now made up of individual LED lamps giving the car a unique face.
Our spy sleuths have snapped up the car being tested and despite the heavy camouflage on the test car, we can see that it will be wider and longer than the outgoing model.
However, one of the biggest changes expected to happen to the car will be that the legendary V6 motor that has been one of its defining points will be dropped in favour of a turbocharged four-cylinder mill. In an obvious nod to emission norms, the engine is expected to be a 2.0-litre unit with roughly the same output as the V6 but with more efficiency.
It is too early to talk about the Accord for India, but if it does come here, then we are looking, once again, at a fully loaded hybrid model for the domestic market.
