- This is how the Civic Type R comes to life: make yourself comfortable
- Honda HR-V 2022: we tested the SUV changes
Sedan lovers are in luck with the announcement of the new Accord. Honda released these first images in the form of a teaser via its official Instagram account. And the uproar has just begun because there are many who are waiting for him, literally, with open arms. The Accord is a car that has many fans around the world, especially in the US, where it is a model that is well-loved for its design, interior space and reliability.
At the moment, the brand is holding off on revealing it in full for later, as it aims to go on sale in early 2023, although with a sample of the front and rear, we’re already predicting how they’ll go together. From the nose, the eyes are caught by the narrow and small radiator grille, which is framed by two thin headlights with LED technology. The line that follows is very similar to that of the Civic, but more like that of the Prologue. Something similar happens at the back, with some pilots that, while not merging in the middle, have practically integral lighting from side to side, only divided by a small logo on the tailgate. From this point of view, it reminds us of the Toyota Corolla Sedan.
What do we know so far?
We still know a little more at the design level. As for mechanics, the eleventh generation will have hybrid engines, like the one used by the Civic. It is a four-cylinder gasoline engine connected to an electric one, although the power is expected to be higher than the 184 hp and 315 Nm of torque achieved by the compact. Confirmation of this mechanism is provided by the photo of the multimedia system, in which the hybrid scheme of operation appears. Otherwise, this infotainment equipment has a 12.3-inch screen, is located on top of the console and has the latest interface.
Now comes what is perhaps the least beautiful part. Honda Spain confirms that the Accord will not be available in our country, since the sales of segment D are very small. The concrete market is their strongest, not the fleet market, which the Accord would be intended for.
