Finally a style from Honda's design studios that doesn't let me complain! Well done. Looks more like a luxury coupe than something trying too hard to in the mainstream class. Simple, and elegant... beautiful.

I don't see any Dodge Charger in it. In fact, they seem to go in opposite directions when it comes to inspiration. The Accord coupe is very sleek.

For couple of years, I have wanted Honda to adopt the hexagonal theme for grill for its lineup and one that most closely resembles the original Hondas (S500/S600). We saw it in 2003 Pilot with its pentagonal shape. I have mentioned it several times, one of them after seeing pictures of the Civic about 1.5 years ago on TOV (link). Good to see Honda taking that route with the Accord.

With this iteration, they have successfully managed to bring the styling elements from the 1992-1993 Accord that seems to be the darling of many of us. After that, IMO, the front end of Accords went downhill. Until now!

For Sure! I hope they can carry this concept thru to production without changing much...at all.

Please people, stop with the _s t r e t c h e s_ when comparing this design with other cars. I'm seeing them in every thread. Surely some elements from this design will be similar to cars already on the market, but to say that it looks alot like a dodge charger is laughable - not trying to rip on you, just trying to make a point.
