2011 Geneva Motor Show Preview: European 2012 Honda Accord

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.

Read the full presser for more details on page two.

  1. Nelson: we do get the Accord Tourer in the States now; it's the 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Some of the guys around the office said the same, but I disagree. The TSX Sport Wagon is the Accord Tourer if you take away the Honda price tag and trim, and add in the goofy Acura grille. At any rate, it's not an Accord, which was the point.
