Honda discontinuing Euro Accord, no replacement in sight
The news comes from The Motor Report in Australia, which is reporting that the Accord Euro will be discontinued in 2015. Sold Down Under alongside the US-market model, the discontinuation of the Aussie car indicates an end to Honda's midsize sedan efforts in Europe, where there is no obvious replacement for the four-door and wagon models.
According to TMR, Honda Australia Director Stephen Collins indicated that focus will be placed instead on the US market "wide-body" model, as it's known. That said, this decision doesn't sound like it's sitting too well in Oz.
"To be honest, we're a bit disappointed in the global decision for it to be discontinued," Collins told TMR. "If we had our way, we would definitely be continuing down that track."
Collins, meanwhile, ruled out rebadging the Acura TLX, saying it's "definitely not" a replacement for the Accord Euro.
