The new accord was spotted sometime back. The only difference which is easily visible is the new grill. I feel they should have redone the boot which to me lacks the grace of old gen accord!

I simply love Honda Accord the way it is. My personal pick is the previous generation model, but the current one is not any bad either. Honda Accord (Especially New) is overflowing in Delhi like anything. In parking lots of an each Mall, You can easily spot at least five to ten of them. Honda might have considered providing a mild facelift as technique to remind and make their presence felt in the segment, which is going to get a stiffer competition soon.

Honda launches new 'Accord' with almost same resemblence as its old gen!!

NEW DELHI: Premium car-maker Honda Siel Cars India on Monday launched an upgraded version of its Accord luxury sedan, priced between Rs 19.60 lakh and Rs 25.41 lakh.

"Our belief in constantly upgrading our products based on customer feedback prompted this launch of an upgraded version of the 'Accord' with unique styling in combination with luxurious features," Honda Siel Cars India ( HSCI )) President and CEO Takashi Nagai said in a statement.

The 'Accord' has registered sales of over 25,000 units since its launch in India, he added.

The company had launched the 8th generation 'Accord' in May, 2008, with 2.4-litre and 3.5-litre engine options.

The new 'Accord' will also be available in two options, a 2.4-litre version costing Rs 19.60-20.36 lakh and a 3.5-litre variant with a Rs 25.41 lakh price tag.

"The new Accord has more style, more comfort and more sophistication than ever before. A bold and aggressive look and striking interiors will make it the most commanding premium sedan on Indian roads," the company said.

IMO instead of these minor tweaks, Honda should speed up the process of bringing in the diesel heart. Such minor facelift may help Honda get some additional sales but the amount wont be huge.
