Honda Accord long discontinued in Japan

Honda Accord

The Honda Accord became the flagship sedan model with the discontinuation of the Honda Legend.

The tenth-generation Accord, the current model, underwent a major facelift two years ago in February 2020. It's a newer model in the current Honda lineup, but that's the case in Japan. North America launched the tenth-generation Accord in October 2017, and it has been five years since the car was launched.

In addition, the Accord has been discontinued in Japan, and the Accord now sold in Japan is a model made in Thailand.
With the popularity of SUVs rising and the popularity of sedans declining, Accord also encountered the problem of poor sales performance. It is rumored that Honda will stop sales after the tenth generation of Accord.

Caught the test car! Modern headlights with sharp contours


Cameras from overseas media have captured what appears to be a next-generation Honda Accord test car.

Although the overall model is not much different from the current model, the design of the front and rear of the car has been greatly changed, and it can be clearly seen that it adopts the same horizontal keynote design of the thin headlights as the latest Honda models ZR-V and Civic.


Because the whole body is covered with camouflage mold, the design details are less clear, but the line under the window is lower than the current model, and the car may become a design that emphasizes the wide body & low body.

Will it become a "big change"?


Although the design of the test car is significantly different from the current car in the front and rear of the car, the pillars and doors of the cabin seem to follow the shape of the current car.

Based on the above information, the next-generation Accord is likely to be like the Nissan Fairlady Z and Mazda CX-5, adding a number of changes to the current model, that is, in the form of "substantial changes".

So far, the Accord has been remodeled for about three years, or about six years longer. The current US Accord was launched in 2017, and the next-generation Accord with "substantial changes" will be implemented in 2022 if it is fast, and will be implemented around 2024 if it is slow.

Will it be discontinued in Japan?

The design source of the new generation Crown: Japan Patent Office

Accord has high popularity overseas and is the pillar of Honda. It is surprising that it will strengthen its brand power through major changes and major changes, but the situation in Japan is different.

As mentioned above, Japan is struggling with sales, and for Honda, which insists on "producing where there is demand", ending production in Japan is quite reasonable.

If the sale ends, the sedan launched by Honda in Japan will disappear, and even the Toyota Crown, which can be regarded as a representative of Japanese sedans, has rumors that the next model will become a similar SUV, so there is still a certain possibility that the sale will end.
