Honda Drops a Sketch of the Accord Concept to be Shown in Detroit
 Date: December 05, 2006 10:21
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: Honda Press Release
 Credibility Rating: Not Specified



Somebody actually gave us a heads up on this about two weeks ago but we were so wrapped up with the Thanksgiving holiday, untimely server issues, and the LA Auto Show that we weren't able to vet it out. Of course, we didn't have any sketches then, but it's good to know we still have some quality leads coming in. For what it's worth this same source indicates that the coupe's distinct styling won't be the only surprise that's in store - supposedly there's big news under the hood too - could there be a turbocharger in store for the future? For those who are wondering what the sedan will look like, word has it that we'll see a sedan concept at the New York show in April.

Honda Accord Coupe Concept to Debut at North American International Auto Show


TORRANCE, Calif. 12/05/2006 --

A bold new look for the next-generation Honda Accord Coupe will be unveiled at the January 2007 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today.

The Accord Coupe Concept will convey exterior styling cues and design features that provide a first look at the direction the next-generation Accord will take and it promises to set a new benchmark for Accord and for the segment. The Accord is Honda's best selling model in North America, and this vehicle's debut at NAIAS will mark the first time an Accord concept car has ever been shown at a major auto show.

Car and Driver magazine recently named the current-generation 2007 Honda Accord as one of the winners of its prestigious and highly competitive annual "10Best Cars" award. The Accord has achieved "10Best" status 21 times in the 25 years that Car and Driver editors have been conducting the competition, more than any other vehicle in the award's history.
