It appears Honda had a whole hoard of 2008 Accords out on the roads the other day for spy photogs to catch. The first shots we brough you were of the base four-cylinder 2008 Honda Accord sedan. The latest batch of pics reveals the 2008 Honda Accord EX, the sedan's most uplevel trim. Painted in a deep (and dirty) black sporting alloy wheels that Temple of VTEC believes emulate the BMW 5-Series, this Accord EX is a more interesting sight to behold than its base model brother that was wearing a dull silver paint. It appears that despite being an EX model, however, this particular mule is also a four-cylinder model since it's only sporting one tailpipe out back.
One interesting styling note a few commenters pointed out on our original spy shots that is even more evident in this new batch is how far out the new Accord's headlights protrude from the body. Looking at the car head on they're not very noticeable, but from a 3/4 perspective one can see how the surface of the front fenders is interrupted by these bug-eye headlights.

It appears that only the V6 models have yet to be snapped, but knowing Priddy and crew, it's only a matter of time.

      When has the Accord won any designs for ground breaking styling. Everytime there is a subject for Honda. The nut jobs come out and bitch about how boring the designs are from Honda. Most Honda owners are not concerned about design. They want a solid vehicle, great resale value, good gas miliage, andlow emissions. I've owned 2 Accords and they've been great cars. The '98 is probably one their most boring designs. It looks good, runs like new, and in much better shape than several newer cars on the road. Most you people are retards anyway. What do you think about BMW or Audi's designs? You probably bitch about those as well.

      I'm guessing that they are trying to make it look like the new altima. Not a bad thing.

      It's really a shame Honda can't come up with a better looking sedan. If they tried I'm sure they could capture even more of the midsize sedan market. These last two generation Accords leave me high & dry with the styling.

      Guys, its an Accord. A well-engineered bread and butter mid-size family sedan that's always handled better than a Camry, but still needs to attract about 300 - 400K buyers a year. Most of whom are non-enthusiasts who just want a nice car. Its not going to be an aggressive design. To do so would be suicide on Honda's part. Expect a nicely proportioned, but conventional sedan shape with well-done details and nothing big complain about. Add a nice upscale, if not quite fully luxury interior and impeccable engineering with probably the CR-V 2.4L and a slightly detuned TL 3.5 V6. In other words a nice sedan for people with less knowledge but more sense than us Autoblog readers.

      anyone think it looks like a lowered ridgeline?

      i guess i just don't like the grill on a sedan.

      Looks like an Altima mixing with a Camry, should have been a larger Civic. and PLEASE flush those lights! What's with the protruding lights now??!!

      Looks very 'boxy', a bad inspiration of a Cadillac and a BMW..Honda should come out with a fresh design..like the new civic..
      their CRV is a POS ..looks like the new accord is going down the drain too!!
      better off with the 2007 model

      They did a good job at keeping the rear of the car current.the tail lights look very much BMW 5 series/ 2008 C class derivative.The beauty of this car will be in the details

      Take a look at the other pix. The taillights are like the headlights. Consistently weird.
