    Spying: Honda Accord Sedan/Coupe, Plus The Interior

    Spy photographers strike once again, this time getting shots of the new Accord Sedan and Coupe while undergoing some hot weather testing.

    Lets begin with the Accord coupe. The coupe mule caught in these pictures is almost identical to the concept shown at NAIAS in January. The front end features a wraparound grille and LED-infused headlights. There’s a noticeable character line running from front fender to the door handle.

    Next is the sedan which appears to be somewhat daring for Honda. Like the Coupe, the Sedan has a noticeable character line running down the doors. Also, the Accord sedan gets a more raked windshield and a extended roofline.

    And to top it all off, spy shots of the Accord’s interior have appeared. The big change is with the Accord’s center stack. Honda has realized that having a mess of buttons isn’t the best of ideas and has cut back on the amount and organized the buttons in a way to make it easier to find what you need. Also, the new Accord is taking some notes from the CR-V with its instrument cluster. The next accord will drop the pair of dials (speedometer and tachometer) and go towards a center speedometer with a with a digital display in its center. Left of the speedometer is the tachometer, while on the other side could be a fuel gauge.

    These are better than the current models, should help keep them from the road of Bankrupcy, yet the dash still is bland bla bla bla.

    Not a fan, but will admit this is better than what they currently have.

    I was under the impression that the speedo and the tach would look more like the new Civic. Either the words are inaccurate or the pics in Motor Trend are inaccurate. If the new Accord has the same instrument cluster as the new Civic, they will have made a mistake since no one has done a fully digital instrument cluster in 20 years. If you have been in those late 80s card that had one, you know why that is the case.
