Honda appears to be actively road testing on the upcoming Accord Coupe, and as these spy shots snapped by a poster on the Howard Forums show, the production car is going to be a near dead-ringer for the "concept" Honda teased us with at the Detroit Auto Show this past January. Obvious changes include a real-world lower rear fascia that features a pair of chrome exhaust tips, and the 10-spoke wheels seen above. The show car sported a set of integrated quad outlets that were obviously never going to make the transition to production. The dual outlets look perfectly good here.

If you click through to the forum to see the rest of the photos (all high-res), you'll notice that the front end, though taped, also apes the concept car. We're guessing that there's more detail to the bottom half of the front fascia than the Detroit car had (it was quite boring, actually). It's covered up in the photos, leading us to believe Honda's keeping something about it a secret. In any case, we like what we see, and if these cars are out and about, we're sure the pro photogs will be on the case as well in short order. let's see some interior shots!

You can compare the spy shots to the gallery of the Accord Coupe concept linked below.

      Man, what a fat ass.

      Backing up while parallel parking would be a pain too cause that bottom bumper never ends!

      I have a 06 Accord coupe. I like this one better, it looks more agressive than current. It's hard to tell, but the rear lights don't look to be LEDs on this mule, which seems like an odd step back. I'll be interested to see what the new interior is like...hopefully none of the Civic people worked on it.

      Wow, the front end looks stollen from BMW and the new Evo. The rear quarters look stolen from the 350z. The back end looks like a retarded mix between a Solara and a 5 year old Saturn with about 100lbs of collagen injected into the bumper.

      Is Honda even trying any more? Or do they think reputation alone will sell their ugly, far from original cars?

      "Boy, that rear end looks ugly, just like a Toyota Solara! "

      Beat me to it. The current Honda Accord back looks soooo much better. WHY HONDA, WHY?!

      Since Honda got the design insperation for the previous Accord from the most dull thing they could find, they decided to use the rear end of a hippo for the next generation.

      Chevy called, they want the rear quarter windows from their Cobalt coupe back...

      How come Honda has consistently managed to make every one of their cars look worse with each redesign? Aside from the last gen Prelude (RIP, sadly) I think the better looking version of every Honda model is the one that came before it.

      Hmm, doesn't really do anything for me. I think it's rather bland.
      • 8 Years Ago
      Honda is on a streak of making really ugly or really bland cars lately. This new thing is no exception. The solara look is not cool.

      They should have kept the concept body style. It had a nicer shape on the sides and back.

      guys, it is still taped, give it some time.
      • 8 Years Ago
      35. Why is everyone getting all riled up..Hondas have--and always will be--ugly, boring, or uninspriring. You mean to tell me you expected better?

      Bah, if your S2000 and the NSX are ugly, boring and uninspiring, thats where you're wrong.
