Honda Accord Coupe Concept Live Photos: 2012 Detroit Auto Show

Follow Bengt

Honda is showing its next-generation Accord in thinly veiled Coupe Concept form at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, and while it's instantly recognizable, up close it outlines some advanced design cues, technology, and features that will likely help maintain this model's status as one of the top sellers on the market.

The 2013 Accord will come with three different engines, including a base 181-horsepower, 2.4-liter 'Earth Dreams' direct-injection four-cylinder engine, a revised 3.5-liter V-6, or in the new Accord Hybrid, a new 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine and twin-motor hybrid system, which has three modes including one for highway driving. All Hybrids will allow plugging in, too.

Look for an expanded set of camera-based active-safety features, including LaneWatch blind-spot warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Forward Collision Warning.

Keep in mind that a next-generation Accord Sedan will be a few inches longer than this Accord Coupe Concept, but take a close look at the design cues and let us know what you think.

  1. I think Honda/Acura have gone the way of Microsoft and lost their minds... Front looks like a badly massaged new RLX (which is bad in itself), the "brake ducts" and exhaust "ports" belong on a SUV in the "M" or "SRT" ways-and-means. The flip-up at the back of the quarter window - WTH??? What happened to the BMW'ish elegant simplicity, focus and verve? Wheel package like a wannabe newer Buick meets cheap streetracer - overall lines are now three gens old and gaining weight... MAYbe Honda/Acura needs to hire from the likes of Hyundai or Kia. I swear, this company has gone the way of SONY and lost everything that it built through the 70's to the early 2000's... POOF!
