Auto Express has a snippet on a supposed Type R version of the Accord Tourer (wagon) rumoured to be under development for the European market.

from the article:
"Officially, it's a concept, known as the Accord Tourer Diesel Sports Study Model, and it's the first high-performance oil-burner the firm has ever produced. Using the 2.2 i-CDTi diesel and thought to offer masses of torque, it comes with enormous alloys, flared bodywork and revised exhausts. Inside, there are bucket seats and a sporty steering wheel.

Read the entire article and see the sketches here.
