Preview: Next Generation Honda Accord Coupe

Honda released a teaser image of the next-generation Accord coupe, which will be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next year in January. Named the Accord Coupe Concept, this new coupe will provide styling cues and design features which will be incorporated into the next-generation of Accords, which Honda hopes to set a new benchmark.

From the image, it looks like Honda borrowed that rear decklid from the Chrysler 300, and it looks nothing like the FCX Concept that everyone thought that was going to be the next version of the Accord.

Press Release:

A bold new look for the next-generation Honda Accord Coupe will be unveiled at the January 2007 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today.

The Accord Coupe Concept will convey exterior styling cues and design features that provide a first look at the direction the next-generation Accord will take and it promises to set a new benchmark for Accord and for the segment. The Accord is Honda’s best selling model in North America, and this vehicle’s debut at NAIAS will mark the first time an Accord concept car has ever been shown at a major auto show.

Car and Driver magazine recently named the current-generation 2007 Honda Accord as one of the winners of its prestigious and highly competitive annual “10Best Cars” award. The Accord has achieved “10Best” status 21 times in the 25 years that Car and Driver editors have been conducting the competition, more than any other vehicle in the award’s history.
