Perfect. Haters gonna hate
Douglas Goncalves Aug 09, 2012
The perfect and ideal car to drive for someone who was born to be mild and living in the land of the bland!
Mat Ronn Oct 29, 2012
I love it. My next car.
Matt Piccolo Aug 10, 2012
@wmg... Srry maybe the 6 is the most fun but this would b a close second, read ANY review/comparison.... My mom owned 2 accords (I got to drive only 1) and for a 4 door sedan, that thing was a blast with its v6!
Austin Boston Aug 10, 2012
ADD SPORTIER RIMS EVERYTHING ELSE IS PERFECT
Wmg Chinchilla Aug 09, 2012
@matt i strongly disagree. In terms of driving dynamics, this is pretty much middle of the pack for a fwd sedan. If you want sporty fwd, Mazda is king. The Kia optima is undoubtly sportier/better looking, then again beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Timothy Hooker Aug 09, 2012
to each their own I suppose.
Matt Piccolo Aug 09, 2012
@ Timothy, this looks better than ur freaken optima lol... And this, FOR A FWD SEDAN, is a about as fun and sporty as it gets (driving wise!)
Ray Liu Aug 09, 2012
Not bad even it's boring it'll sell tons Honda is playing safe it wants profits not purely perfect products
Christian De Prisco Aug 09, 2012
Well it won't force the previous gen out of style like bmw3series at least
Timothy Hooker Aug 09, 2012
not griping cause its not sporty...just saying that it looks 1990s. my Kia optima isn't sporty but it sure looks good and fresh
Vincent R Butler Aug 09, 2012
Like I said if its Not RWD, AWD. In ur eyes it's a Piece of shit car.
Vincent R Butler Aug 09, 2012
Enough? When was it ever. It's probably the most Reliable cars ever built. U can drive the shit out of it everyday, and guess what it will start up the next day. Im sure after watching A gay movie called fast furious. u all want fast cars
Vincent R Butler Aug 09, 2012
Strategy is not working?, last Time I check Honda sells couple Hundred THOUSAND of accord/civics . It's a daily Driver with great gas mileage. It's so ridiculous reading most of ur comments posted here. Because its not RWD, or AWD. Or it not sporty
Joe Scarborough Aug 09, 2012
What gets me is not that this is a mere refresh, but that Honda is trying to say it's a radical and innovative departure from what they have been putting out in the past!
Wmg Chinchilla Aug 09, 2012
Although one can consider it an improvment this new design is uninteresting, bland and boring. Honda, you used to be so genuinely cool. Why did you sell out to try to be the auto company for the masses? Your strategy is not working. Please bring your old swagger back. - Will
Keegan Mathur Aug 09, 2012
It's A Great Car, they seem to keep improving it every year!
Michael Bichay Aug 09, 2012
What ppl don't get is that automakers can make a badass car if they wanted to but they don't have to bcus a brand like Honda know ppl will still buy it just bcus it's an accord. plus they have to save designs for the future
Scott Lenahan Aug 09, 2012
A "reliability" level doesn't make a great car to me.. I'd rather have a car that always had issues rather than a bland boring A-Bmobile..
Matt Piccolo Aug 09, 2012
In all honesty, it sounds like a v8 when it's idling, and this is coming from a v4 turbo
Matt Piccolo Aug 09, 2012
Sorry 108,000km!!!!!!!!!
Matt Piccolo Aug 09, 2012
Might b DONE! And this is after 180,000km
Matt Piccolo Aug 09, 2012
@ Connor, there's a reason people don't like the passat, my mom has one, and she's been having problems lately, and her normal mechanic said he doesn't want to touch the thing anymore, and made her take it the vw dealer... He said he thinks the engin
Barry Stewart Aug 09, 2012
@Tom this may not be considered "affordable" for the proletariat... Especially those with bad credit...
Colby Church Aug 09, 2012
They could've changed the wheels though, they've been using that same design for years. Pretty boring now.
Kyle Smith Aug 09, 2012
We get so many supercar articles on here that when a normal car (that the 99% can afford) comes up we bash its looks because it doesn't have a spoiler, flared wheel arches, lowered stance and sweeping body lines. I'd give this design an 8/10.
Jared Millstead Aug 09, 2012
looks much better then the bug-eyed accord we have now.
John Rigano Aug 09, 2012
Honda and Toyota screwed up there Accord and Camry but if I had to decide the accord looks a tad better
Scott Westphall Aug 09, 2012
There used to be a time that Honda made the most interesting and fun affordable sedans in the business. Those days are LONG gone. This is more boring than a Camry.
Ken Louise Aug 09, 2012
Can't comment about anything about the car except for its design. And honestly, it's a bad effort on Honda's part in designing this car. It's no different from its predecessor, it looks bland and hopeless when compared to its rivals.
Bryan Wesly Pascual Aug 09, 2012
Just the left side of the pic w/o "H" badge, looks like GS 350
Matt Greenlee Aug 09, 2012
all i want in a car is decent get-up, and rwd. thats all I ask. too hard? i think not, hell, id even be ok with awd, but never front. lets all go buy a bmw instead!
Zaire Wilkins Aug 09, 2012
ehhh the new fusion isnt so hot nor the 13 mazada 6 to me anymore the rims and body kit makes it look bad
Walter Alexander Thomas Aug 09, 2012
Only Honda likers would buy this.
Walter Alexander Thomas Aug 09, 2012
I agree. Reliability is found just about anywhere now days. Honda and Toyota is falling behind big time and especially with design. This car still looks like the 2008-2012 models and they even suck. The coupe was ok but the new fusion look better
Ashen Fonseka Aug 09, 2012
Aaaamen brother!!!
Timothy Hooker Aug 08, 2012
who cares about dependability! Ferrari's catch on fire all the time and I'd still give my left nut for one. on here we want fun cars and that's why all our (true buzz fans) say this car sux
Justin Brest Aug 08, 2012
imho they need a "si" version of the accord. A turbo or a beefed up v6 would be pretty cool, especially seeing that sport/muscle sedans have really taken off the last few years.
Justin Brest Aug 08, 2012
I didn't proof read at all... *to the people posting your opinions about other opinions...
Justin Brest Aug 08, 2012
To the other people posting your opinions other peoples opinions. I haven't heard anyone say they aren't a quality car or that its bad looking... just that its boring. It has boring performance and boring looks. This is what "non" car people buy. Its just way to practical for most of us "gear heads" to even consider buying! lol
Wyatt Gordon Aug 08, 2012
WOOOW! it looks exactly the same as it always has! thats amazing! (not hatin on Honda, I like their bikes, but still).
Brent Cairns Aug 08, 2012
wow, 75 percent of these people leaving comments do not like Honda's at all, so they are going negative comments, and they know nothing on designing a quality car
Kaigan Viner Aug 08, 2012
Looks like a Hyundai
Matt Greenlee Aug 08, 2012
hondas and toyotas are the worst car makers out there beacuse their cars are the worst thing a car can be; boring. Once they try rwd, then we can talk. Ill stick with my M5 for now, thanks.
Ryan Douglas Hie Aug 08, 2012
That's a redesign?
Janak Solanki Aug 08, 2012
Geez looks the same as the one it replaces.
John P Jerse Aug 08, 2012
Wow, if Honda would just take the below advice they just might make it on the ten best selling car list. Oh wait, they did 3 times, guess Honda might just know more about making cars then the below people.
Tim Preisinger Aug 08, 2012
It's not bad looking... Just as other have said, boring.
Jon Ashley Aug 08, 2012
not just looks, but how it is to drive. I wouldn't ever call it sporty honestly. And yes, I've driven a 2011 accord 4 cylinder.
Joe Talerico Aug 08, 2012
I really want to like Hondas, but like most on here, I find this latest design disappointing and boring.
Swarun Kulasekaran Aug 08, 2012
If Honda is shooting for reliability here, I will definitely buy one!! I have a '96 accord that has been running for nearly 16 years without any major problems!! If this new accord has good reliability, I don't care about good looking competition
Zachary Maurer Aug 08, 2012
@miguel, Ikr, let him has his fun
Miguel Jimenez Aug 08, 2012
Matt if this had a Chevy badge or Dodge badge...
John Serely Aug 08, 2012
ZZZ...compared to its competitors, this looks as bland as a cardboard box...much rated have an optima or a WRX hatchback, or a passat IF I had to buy a new competitor to this for the $, which I wouldn't lol
Abraham Mendoza Aug 08, 2012
You know, this is probably a base model. I think it looks pretty good. Not crazy, just...good.
Timothy Hooker Aug 08, 2012
wow this is sooooo boring. they need to take some pointers from Kia and copy a nice car like BMW or Audi
Austin Sullivan Aug 08, 2012
Too bad the Camry sucks. This is way better than a Camry in my opinion.
Joe Scarborough Aug 08, 2012
Atleast you can tell the changes in the newer Camry, this just seems like laziness on Honda's part.
Sean Clark Aug 08, 2012
Still looks ugly and boring!
Zaire Wilkins Aug 08, 2012
needs better rims
Jonathan St-Pierre Aug 08, 2012
Honda has lost his passion. It looks like Hondas are designed by engineers who don't really likes cars, sitting on brown desks with no windows around and no pictures of supercars on their walls... They should let design their cars by designers, not engineers! Hyundai and many other car makers makes more beautiful cars than them today!
Ryan Patrick Clauson Aug 08, 2012
Like Honda and Toyota don't like to do any radical changes to their top selling cars, which is why these cars are so boring and nothing special.
Xavier Mangubat Aug 08, 2012
3 things I don't like 1: the door mirrors look boring 2: the rims 3: the front should be bigger
Jeremy Siebert Aug 08, 2012
Xavier, you just called the Camry exciting? They couldn't make it look exciting with flames painted on the nose and a jet engine sticking out of the trunk...
Xavier Mangubat Aug 08, 2012
The front and the tail lights should look like the one on the Coupe
Xavier Mangubat Aug 08, 2012
This car lacks exiting designs that the Altima And The Camry has. I like the LED Daytime Running lights though
Matt Piccolo Aug 08, 2012
I don't see whats wrong with. It... It isn't boring compared to competors?
Jack Howard Aug 08, 2012
I like the front but the side profile is just average
Kevin Rehbock Aug 08, 2012
I've had better looking chuds in my toilet
Bijan Jahanpanah Aug 08, 2012
they dont care what it looks like because they know it will same because it's a Honda
Isaac Suarez Aug 08, 2012
Great car company, but soulless. It could be worse but still as exciting as a rock. Honda needs to stop getting their inspiration from the kitchen.
Dylan Bruder Aug 08, 2012
Thats aweful so bland
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 08, 2012
This picture just triggered my narcolep.......
Tyler Tarbox Aug 08, 2012
It's ok Honda, you still make great lawnmowers.
Stephen Cobbs Aug 08, 2012
Hondas have no souls. Sorry Honda slapping LEDs on headlights doesnt make it any better.
Biswajyoti Das Aug 08, 2012
Hondas cars have become so boring these days! I want to find the chief designer of Honda and personally smack him on the head. The s2000, the Japanese civic type R, the nsx were the glorious designs of Honda and were real head turners.
Aj Harper Aug 08, 2012
Goodbye Honda. FORD FTW!! This car is a shame.
Matt Piccolo Aug 08, 2012
I think it looks great.., the old was very bulgy, this is very nice!
Patrick Schalk Aug 08, 2012
ZzZzZzZzzzzz.........
Chris Marshall Ernst Aug 08, 2012
Side crease looks like the new 5-series.
Justin Brest Aug 08, 2012
HONDA- "we guaranty to bore you to tears"... Honda, your about as fun as insurance, With your fwd/"4wd" pickup to your incredibly practical and affordable cars. Bring back the S2000 so you can have at least a little fun in your cars!
Description: Up front Honda has gone for a new, more upright grille and a more shapely hood, while the side flanks have been more sculpted. Honda has made the rear appear lower and wider by extending the taillight...

Matt Piccolo Aug 10, 2012
Ok can u all please go look at the genesis RIGHT now on this app, and then tell me these taillighta look like them PLEASE
Austin Boston Aug 10, 2012
RIMS SUCK ASS, love the taillights though :) thanks hyundai ^.^
Andy Nongbu Demar Cho Aug 09, 2012
Def Hyundai Genesis
Ron Vinson Aug 09, 2012
Carbon copy of the Genensis! Ridiculous!
Michael Bichay Aug 09, 2012
Wow deeply disappointed with the rear. Looks like a Genesis
Keegan Mathur Aug 09, 2012
The back reminds me of the Mercedes Benz E Class
Wmg Chinchilla Aug 09, 2012
Very boring. I'm tired of car companies being too conservative to appease the masses. That's not what we want! Look at why Hyundai is where they are now, they took a gamble with a striking design that nobody had and it worked. This is boring 'safe' design, just like Toyota , Chevy , and now VW. I hate it
Kyle Smith Aug 09, 2012
The back is definitely an improvement and the LEDs were a must
Hung Trinh Aug 09, 2012
Honda is slipping on innovations(crx, Nsx, s2000).However thier products has a proven track record of resell value, build quality,& reliability unlike its German, American , Korean competitions. Let wait @ see Motortrend, car & driver, ect compare?
Hung Trinh Aug 09, 2012
All this Honda hate...??? Honda developed this car to appease the masses... They will sell several hundred thousand unit and if not will be top mid-size sedan sold. Yes it is boring, plan and no eye candy to look at. If its not broke ...
John Rigano Aug 09, 2012
Same muffler tips ugly rims
Ken Louise Aug 09, 2012
The tail of a Genesis. Honda, what the hell has happened?
Alan Baars Aug 09, 2012
Oh wow. If you dropped this on a show room floor 10 years ago, no one would bat an eye. Pretty much the same Honda we've always seen for years. Maybe my impression of Honda is wrong but I was expecting more. Exterior easily outclassed.
Jackson Michael Aug 09, 2012
It honestly looks exactly like the old one
Jon Ashley Aug 08, 2012
I'm thinking the new mazda 6 will be the best of the group.
Janak Solanki Aug 08, 2012
Honda, Kia, Hyundai, Toyota....what's the difference. They all speak the same design language
Eric Byun Aug 08, 2012
Honda now copying Hyundai... Times have changed.
Jimmy Williams Aug 08, 2012
It's just a shame that a company that was so successful in cheap, innovative, fun cars is so incredibly bland now. Eventually sales will fall and catch up to the mundane...ness.
Zachary Maurer Aug 08, 2012
@ Patrick, ahahahahahahaha, I agree, but Honda has just sadly fit in with the crowd and made dd for the average driver, what a shame :'(
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 08, 2012
Lol, yea they look a little like the Genesis lights
Patrick Schalk Aug 08, 2012
I didn't know turds came in grey
Abraham Mendoza Aug 08, 2012
I do see some Lexus in there. Shame.
Adam Mitchel Aug 08, 2012
All these cheaper cars now a days have that line that goes down the side which Mercedes started
Zaire Wilkins Aug 08, 2012
the rear is a big improvement at least from them slapping two bars running from the tailights on the 2012 model
Matt Piccolo Aug 08, 2012
Honestly, I see some 99 accord in this, NOT genesis... My mom owned one for 10 years and I see a bit of that car in true lights with how big they are
King Rich Aug 08, 2012
Genesis and Lexus LS
Anthony Palmisano Aug 08, 2012
Wow.......looks just like exactly like Hyundai Genesis's taillights!!!
Jonathan St-Pierre Aug 08, 2012
Honda really stops making exciting cars since...at least 2006, with the last gen Civic! Almost every single model in their lineup since then are boring...
Jeremy Siebert Aug 08, 2012
People with no long term memories forget that Hyaundai has been mimicking Honda design for a couple decades...and this is an evolution of Honda Accord design. There is moderate similarity to the Genesis taillight shape, but here it is a part of the lines of the car, while the Genesis forced the shape into a slab-sided vehicle
Tin Nguyen Aug 08, 2012
Honda styling is do boring.
Xavier Mangubat Aug 08, 2012
The tail light should be smaller and the rear end should be more sharply designed
Xavier Mangubat Aug 08, 2012
There is A Hyundai Rear End On This car
Matt Piccolo Aug 08, 2012
Where is there ANY Hyundai in this
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 08, 2012
They just TOOK the tail lights from the genesis. Their design chief is a crook
Dylan Bruder Aug 08, 2012
This angle is a little bit better but still definitely no home run
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 08, 2012
So lemme get this straight Hyundai is now a trendstter??
Joe Scarborough Aug 08, 2012
The rear looks a lot like the last gen Sonata. Snooooze.......
Emilio Ortiz Aug 08, 2012
I think it looks like a lexus
Frederick Perez Aug 08, 2012
Not its best look but better than the current model
Matt Piccolo Aug 08, 2012
I think it looks awesome, and I'm not seeing and genesis here? I personally think this is class leading with the fusion and Altima close behind
Jimmy Williams Aug 08, 2012
"Yes Alec, I'll take a boring FWD Genesis for 500 please."
Jeremy Siebert Aug 08, 2012
No, Honda Accord. Don't you read the article titles? Anyways...it's an improvement, even if it doesn't ignite any passion
Justin Brest Aug 08, 2012
Definitely Hyundai Genesis tail lights
Matt Piccolo Aug 09, 2012
@ Colby, considering the old one got to 60 in about 5.7 sec, thats VERY fast for a fwd car based off of a family sedan...
Juan Ceja Aug 09, 2012
are they goin to make a HFP Edition?
Jack Howard Aug 09, 2012
275hp with a 6speed manual would be very fun IMO
Colby Church Aug 09, 2012
@Kyle Buddy, your and my perceptions of quick are vastly different. Haha :) They "aren't terribly slow" is the phrase I would prefer.
Kyle Smith Aug 09, 2012
I'd buy one with the 6 speed and the V6, they're pretty quick cars.
Scott Westphall Aug 09, 2012
So freaking boring.
Darian Vorlick Aug 09, 2012
Darrellbell24: considering the TSX is the Accord Type R, it's no coincidence they look similar.
Jackson Michael Aug 09, 2012
This looks worse than its predecessor
Janak Solanki Aug 08, 2012
They need to line up all these cars next to each other and remove their badges. Who would be able to tell the differences?
Xavier Mangubat Aug 08, 2012
I mean the sedan
Xavier Mangubat Aug 08, 2012
I mean the sedan
Xavier Mangubat Aug 08, 2012
Liking the coupe more than the design
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 08, 2012
The coupe looks ok from the front
Dylan Bruder Aug 08, 2012
Looks better as a coupe I'll admit
Matt Piccolo Aug 08, 2012
How does this look like the old one? I really like it!
Jeremy Siebert Aug 08, 2012
Their cars, as opposed to the cars over there. Maybe Honda's targeted demographic is specific to those people who dislike change
Lee Gardner Aug 08, 2012
Like Nissan did on there cars
Corey Mullis Aug 08, 2012
yeah i dont get it, looks exactly the same
Thomas Mackey Aug 08, 2012
It looks good...but kinda boring I think we need to see a new overhaul on the accord
Danny Reed Aug 14, 2012
Much better. They put it on a diet
Austin Boston Aug 10, 2012
is it me or do the taillights actually look sort of like the Porsche Carrera's?
Jack Howard Aug 09, 2012
Yeah i read an article on motor trend that actually gives you info
Wyatt Gordon Aug 08, 2012
@Jack, are you sure? good job then, Honda, youve proved me to be another cynical arse who thinks you're 100% boring. now just design your exteriors like the Italians and the brits, and you're good
Jack Howard Aug 08, 2012
Yes its going to have a 6 speed manual that is offered with the v6 and i4
Wyatt Gordon Aug 08, 2012
@Carlton, I highly doubt Honda will have enough of a sense of humour for a manual
Cameron Duncan Condy Aug 08, 2012
Coupe over sedan! This car looks great. I bet better in person.
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 08, 2012
Wonder if it will have a manual tranny
Zack Herzer Aug 08, 2012
The lights look like a mix of the outgoing Porsche 911 and the new impreza?!?!?
Rodgar Aug 08, 2012
hopefully they will offer a four wheel drive, that would make it interesting
Jon Ashley Aug 08, 2012
I will have to wait, but right now I'm not seeing much appeal in this. looks better than the sedan though.
Abraham Mendoza Aug 08, 2012
Whoa, what's that?
Austin Sullivan Aug 08, 2012
It's the squared-off bumper, it needs to flow more with the rest of it.
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 08, 2012
Whats happened here tho. Thats fugly
Dylan Bruder Aug 08, 2012
It does look a bit odd I think it's those vents or whatever at the bottom
Frederick Perez Aug 08, 2012
Reminds me of the Solara
Matt Piccolo Aug 08, 2012
Oh I'm loving this rear!
Manuel Pulgarin Aug 08, 2012
looks cool but odd
