LATEST UPDATE: The new 8th generation 2008 Honda Accord is now in Malaysia. Click the link more information on prices, specifications and photos.

Honda unveiled a facelift to it’s Honda Accord back in September. The new Accord has a refreshed front design and a totally different rear design, because American customers were complaining about the thin horizontal tail lights which according to market surveys did not suit the car. Personally I like the old design better than this new one, but let’s have a look at the new design.

UPDATE: This new 2006 Honda Accord facelift has been launched on the 6th of July 2006 in Malaysia. Click here for an in-depth coverage.

The car gets a new sporty bumper and a new front grille which looks more like the new USDM Civic. The back receives a total makeover, with the new LED tail lamps looking like the Mercedes Benz C and S Class tail lamps. The third brake lamp has also been integrated into the boot lid.

The 2.0, 2.4 and 3.0 V6 engines have also been given intake and exhaust enhancements to produce a little more horsepower, though nothing much to shout about.

Which rear end design do you prefer guys, the one available on our market now or this new facelift?
