Honda has released these teaser images of the new European market Honda Accord, which has traditionally been very different from the model that the US and Asian markets get. Generally the European Accord is slimmer and sleeker, something like the first generation Mazda 6 that is sold on our markets. Europeans do not expect D-segment sedans to be big and fat as over there a younger crowd is able to afford them.
These teasers are for the Tourer (estate) model, but we will see both the sedan and Tourer models unveiled at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show this year. The US market will most probably get this car, but badged as an Acura TSX, as the previous generation CF-series European Honda Accord was also badged as the first generation Acura TSX.
Expect styling to be based on Frankfurt 2007’s Honda Accord Touring concept.
