2012 Honda Accord (European version)
A revised version of the Honda Accord for Europe will make its debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show with a short list of updates, some minor, some more significant. Unfortunately the European Accord Tourer (wagon) still eludes us, leaving us with the apple-bottomed Crosstour instead.
The list of updates includes revised interior and exterior styling, better emissions and fuel economy for all engines offered, a new 2.2-liter i-DTEC diesel engine rated at 138 grams of CO2 per kilometer, upgraded ride and handling, optional automatic high-beam and active cornering lights, and a new 176-horsepower Type S model.
There's no word that any of these updates will feature in U.S. versions of the car, though we wouldn't be surprised to see the updated exterior and interior touches make the translation.
