Looks big. I like the more traditional gauge cluster vs new Civic, but dislike the floating touchscreen in the console. Just because MB and BMW do it doesn't make it luxury.

When do '18 models start showing up, anyway?

Wow! The first accord I have liked since the one with triangular taillights in like 2006.

That rear quarter view's shape made me immediately think CLS.

Now I can look like Im rich but still drive a honda.

AMG life.

Surprised to find it's actually 2" shorter than the outgoing model despite a longer/wider wheelbase.

Wow, I like it A LOT.

Except for the rims, Honda has done an awful job with rims as of late.

The tails are awful looking too, WOOF!

I think it's built on the same platform as the Civic

Will be a helluva vehicle depending on how much different the motor is from the civic.

6 speed sedan with a tune, if it reacts to tunes anything like VAG vehicles it would be an awesome cheap package

The last two generations of Accords have been far too long. Glad to see Honda is waking up to this.

Would rather have a taller trunk than a deeper one.

Seems weird for a car that big to only have a 1.5, but with just about 200hp that's more than enough. It's the new age. I do like how it looks though. My dad has been in the market for a new accord for ages now so I will tell him to go check this one out and see if it's worth it. I think it was smart of Honda to drop the v6 though...that engine was long for this world.

I like it. 2.0T with 6MT sounds like an ideal daily.

Not a fan of the looks at all but maybe it will grow on me. Will be interesting to see how "detuned" the CTR engine actually is.

Yup and how easy it will be to get it back to CTR power, if they don't use different cams and such.

I think the 2016/2017 Sport & Touring Accords are the best looking. Looks better than this 2018.

Went way backwards in the looks department. There's two or three Accord Sports in the lot right meow, I think those look pretty damn good. This is just funky.

I like it. It's like a (larger) Civic without the weirdness.

I'm ok with the Hyundai Sonata look.

It makes lining up the muffler tip(s) easier. They can be off, and still be spot on. Save manufacturing time, and less waste as slightly bent mufflers can still be used.

Becoz LS...



You didn't see them much before Lexus threw them on in 07 (that I'm aware of, correct me if I'm wrong). It seemed they were everywhere in the following MY releases from other manufacturers. Only thing is most other manufacturers use cheap materials and chrome plating that turns to trash inside of 30K miles. LS' are stainless steel.
