New smaller and tighter Honda Accord on the way

New smaller and tighter Honda Accord on the way
 

From luxury and speed to something slightly more sensible and you don’t get much more sensible than the Honda Accord. The current generation has not been the success of generations before it and Honda is keen to put the Accord back in a strong position in the sales charts in 2018.

To do that, it will put the next generation Accord on the same platform as the new Civic. This means the Accord will become slightly smaller, but manufacturers are seeking increased profits from reducing the number of platforms so it makes good business sense if the Japanese marque gets it right.

Engines are likely to be similar to those in the current Accord, but the V6 could be chopped and there could also be a new four-cylinder. – BD Motor News
