The current ninth generation Honda Accord started production in 2012, and although the midsize sedan got a facelift in 2016, it’s time to start looking ahead to the tenth generation. Honda is fresh off the successful launch of the latest Civic, so expect a strong follow up to what is already one of the best sedans on the market. Our spy photographer caught the latest heavily-camouflaged model out testing.
As with so many test vehicles, this latest Honda Accord is heavily covered with camouflage. The overall shape is very Civic-like, with a fastback roofline and short trunk lid. The headlights appear to be wide, narrow, and similar to the current design, but again it’s difficult to make out any specific details.
Our photographer also managed to get a couple pictures of the interior, but those don’t reveal much other than a number of buttons, which is an improvement over Honda’s current infotainment system. It’s difficult to see if the two-screen setup remains.
Other than that, these photos don’t reveal much. We can only speculate on things like interior improvements or engine and options, but turbocharging and CVTs are almost assuredly on the table. The future of the V6 seems especially uncertain as much of the Accord’s competition has moved to four-cylinder only power.
Look for a full reveal the 2018 Honda Accord sometime next year.
