The European version of the Honda Accord has been recently revealed in a couple of sketches by the Russian division of the company.
After the new generation of the Honda Accord has been revealed a few weeks ago over-seas, the Japanese based automaker is getting ready to offer the model in Europe too, but with a different design, which should suit the needs of people living on the Old Continent better. The first sketches with the new generation of the Honda Accord aimed for Europe have been recently revealed by the Russian division of Honda during this year’s Moscow Motor Show.
Rumors are saying that the main differences between the two models, the American and the European, will be under the hood, because the version aimed towards the Old Continent will get a diesel engine too, which might be the 1.6 liter from the Civic which will generate 120 HP and 300 Nm of torque. Honda will reveal the new generation of the Accord for Europe at the 2012 Paris Motor Show later on this month.
As a quick reminder, the 2013 Honda Accord for North America is getting three engines, a 2.4 liter four-cylinder with 181 HP, a 3.5 liter V6 with 271 HP and a 2.0 liter i-VTEC mated to an electric CVT. Additional details on the American Accord will be announced close to the model’s launch.
