Honda Accord Coupe Concept
Just like last time, they are actually showing us the production version of the car early.
Adding a few chrome bits here and there and calling it a concept.
Looks like they were afraid to redesign it. And mostly added some character lines.
Let's hope they changed the sedan a bit more. (Make that a lot more...)
They claim the sedan will be smaller than the outgoing model.
For 2013 the new base engine will be a 2.4 Liter with direct injection and 181hp.
A 6 speed manual will still be offered, while the automatic will now be a CVT.
A V6 will still be an option. Which will soon be an oddity for a mis sized sedan. (The Camry seems to be the only other one offering a V6 option)
And a Hybrid version will return. Now a plug-in type matted with a 2.0 Liter engine and capable of 10 to 15 miles of electric driving alone.
Not bad at all, if they can keep the price down.
