Spy shots: New Accord based CUV could arrive by the end of the year
It's not clear if this is the final body style that will appear, but the car actually has quite handsome proportions. Power will likely come from either the current Accord 2.4-liter four and 3.5-liter V6 engines, or possibly the Acura RDX 2.3L turbo. It's unfortunate that the 2.2L i-DTEC diesel is dead in the water for America because that would actually be an ideal candidate for such a vehicle. John Mendel, executive vice-president of American Honda confirmed to a dealer meeting over the weekend that a new product is coming for the brand this fall. The new CUV is expected to debut at the LA Auto Show in November.
