Default Accord Facelift


Some guy over at Freshalloy.com (The Nissan enthusiast site) spotted this in a Minnesota mall parking lot and took a couple pics with a cameraphone. He said he would have gotten more had he realized what he was getting.

That looks interesting....
I wonder if this update is only for the USDM version?

For GM's designs to be so widely criticized, they sure are copied alot. I hope I'm not the only one who sees a blend of many of the recent GM sedans in this.

is that an Accord facelift or the new Civic coupe???

the Accord already got a facelift though because the rear now has all red taillights instead of half red/half white.

It's mostly interior designs that are criticized. And people saying they aren't taking enough risk with the design, not enough emotion in them, like they were used to from GM of the 50's and 60's. Honda on the other hand rarely has an inspiring design with a handfull of exceptions. I see a hint of Grand Prix in the back. However, I see more elements of the current Accord Coupe and the Civic Si Concept.

If you look at the first pic you can see that there are four doors, so this definately isn't the Civic coupe. That is suposed to stay pretty close to the Si concept. And the all red tail lights aren't the facelift, even though that is a common "facelift" for Honda's (new tail lights, not all red) From what I have read, an extensive facelift was ordered after the public disdain of the current sedan's back end treatment.

I was thinking the same exact thing. But this car looks maybe too big for a Civic, but then again the new Civic does look a lot bigger in those other spy pics. The back end does look pretty similar.

judging from the fuzzy side picture, it looks like an accord to me. if it is, i guess they're facelifting it to give it a resemblance to the new civic.

I agree... the side profile says Accord. In any event, I like it.
