The tenth-generation Honda Accord suffered only two years ago, but the situation is forcing the Japanese to act quickly: sales in the main American market for the model are plummeting. So, if back in 2017, 322,000 Accords were sold in the USA, then in 2021 – only 202,000.
Alas, there are no technical details yet. It is only known that the company intends to bet on a hybrid version: it is stated that the hybrid Accord will become more responsive to the accelerator pedal and give more driving emotions.
It is likely that the model will share the installation with the new CR-V, which has a combined output of a 2.0-liter “aspirated” and a traction electric motor is 207 hp. With. and 335 Nm. As an alternative, most likely, the K20C4 petrol “turbo-four” and a more compact 1.5-liter turbo engine will be offered.
Exterior teasers of the new Honda Accord were hardly a surprise: patent images of the eleventh generation sedan were leaked to the Web in the summer.
The main surprise is the long front overhang, due to which the laconic design lacks elegance. The front part is made in the spirit of all new Honda: compact housings of LED headlights adjoin the hexagonal false radiator grille. Behind – larger modules connected by a diode “jumper”.
But there were no images of the interior before. In the center of the front panel will be a 12.3-inch touch screen multimedia system with Google services – the largest in the history of the brand. It is reasonable to expect from the new “Accord” a minimalistic decoration in the spirit of Civic, but adjusted for dimensions.
The full premiere of the eleventh Accord will take place in November.
