Honda has given out a drawing of the 2003 Honda Accord, which will be presented in Paris at the end of september.

The new Accord is larger then the current, and will enter a higher segment, placing it between the current Accord and the Legend. The engines will be more powerfull and there will be a diesel-version which will feature the first ever Honda-designed diesel-engine.

It's doubtful that the new Accord will feature the exact lines of the drawing, however it's said to be more agressive then the rather conservative US-version.

Certainly an aggressive design, wouldn't like to see that car in my rearview mirror.

If i would see this car in my rearview mirror, i would probably crash into something in front of me, because i couldn't stop looking. :shock:

Can't seem to decide .... is a BMW or Audio design?

Lately a lot of higer level Toyota sedans look like Benz from the back.

I bet the new accord is a branch off of the Saber/Vigor/Inspire classes

I think it looks like a Peugeot 406 Coupテゥ.
The nose does indeed resemble a BMW, though.

These drawings are always exaggerated. The real thing will not have wheels this large and won't be this much lowered to the ground. It's very unpractical to drive like this, unless it's for racing / rally purposes.

And here is the real deal.
This picture is taken at the Paris Autosalon which is currently taking place.

That European Accord looks very close to a Toyota Solara to me.
But what else is new ? Honda has been doing close clones of all Toyota Models for a long time anyways. Maybe some day they will do their own designs.

The Solara only exists in North America. It is been known (and admitted) that Toyota 'borrowed' styling ideas from Honda. I guess now, Honda is taking it back....


Toyota has admitted that the new Celica is an homage to the new Integra.

WhiteAllTrac,
welcome and yoroshiku

Solara? Camry based models are very popular in Japan. Although Chaser and MarkII do quite well.
