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.
