●Approximate appearance from the test car
●Adopt Honda's new generation design
●The chassis platform inherits the previous generation?
●Even Crown... In Japan, where car sales are struggling, will Accord exit the market?
The Honda Accord is a sedan larger than the Civic and has a high popularity in the United States. A test car suspected to be the next-generation Accord has also been witnessed before, and it can be seen that the car is preparing for a facelift.
The overseas media created the expected CG image based on the test car sightings.
The CG image of the new generation of Accord based on the test car, the front of the car is depicted with the same horizontal key design as the Civic and Stepwgn. The tank guard adopts the double-layer structure that is also found on the new-generation ZR-V and CR-V.
The water tank guard is connected to the headlights, presenting a simple design that is very different from the current model.
The test car is covered with a camouflage model, and it is very likely that the design of the front and rear of the new generation of cars will be greatly changed, and some of the designs still retain the same design as the current car.
Therefore, the new generation of Accord may inherit the chassis platform of the current car, and adopt the form of facelift that is close to reshaping or major changes.
Just like the Nissan Fairlady Z, although it uses the chassis platform of the previous generation model Z34, it is 80% redesigned and is essentially regarded as a major facelift. The reason for this is that if it were to be re-type certified as the Z35, it would increase the cost and the price of the vehicle.
It's possible that Honda could use the previous generation's chassis platform to design the next-generation Accord for the same reason, so that it can reduce costs while also launching a new car.
There is a saying in the Japanese market that the popularity of SUVs is so high that "sedans do not sell well". Even the Crown, Toyota's most representative sedan, will be transformed into SUV-style models in the next generation.
Honda has introduced both hatchbacks and sedans in the next-generation Civic, but Japan only sells the hatchback. Honda currently sells the Accord and Insight sedan products, but the Insight also announced that it will no longer produce the next-generation model, which shows that Honda is reducing the sedan product.
The current Accord model was introduced to Japan after being launched in North America for many years. At least for Honda, Japan will not be the priority market for the Accord.
Therefore, even if the new-generation Accord is popular in North America, it is very likely that it will not be introduced to Japan, and the current model will be sold as the last generation product.
