Even as we’re still sorting out all the automotive debuts that came out of the L.A Auto Show late last week, we’re starting to hear of introductions slated for the Detroit Auto Show (officially known as the North American International Auto Show), which takes place in early January. Honda, for instance, is one of the first out of the gates with its announcement that it will debut an Accord Coupe Concept vehicle, which “will provide a first look at the direction the next-generation Accord will take,” according to Honda. The automaker also notes that this is the first time an Accord concept car has ever been shown at a major auto show.
Given the fact that the Accord is Honda’s bestselling model in North America (again according to Honda), there’s a lot riding on this new design. And we like what we see so far. The car looks a bit hunkier and more aggressive, with a redesigned tail, wraparound tallights, new wheels, and four exhaust pipes. We’ll know more when the actual car makes its appearance sometime around Jan. 7 to 9, 2007.
