Honda Accord, Civic Among Models Featured in New Summer Sales Campaign

Inside the 2016 Honda Civic 1.8 E

There's also speculation in some quarters that Honda will attempt to straddle the gap between the full-size Accord and the sadly-missed Euro model by constraining its body growth. The 2018 sedan has been spied for the very first time, and it is getting a lot of changes, both in terms of aesthetics and mechanics. Although Honda will launch the SUV firth in the US, India is also among the potential markets for the next generation Honda CR-V.

It is evident that the upcoming Accord will have an aggressive rear profile.

And with the industry trend towards developing new, lighter platforms using alloy and high-strength steel structures, it's probably reasonable to expect the new Accord will, if nothing else, keep a tight rein on overall weight.

Also borrowed from the Civic is the car's platform.

The new Accord could be seen being large on proportions, albeit with some angular and sporty styling cues than the auto it replaces. It has been four years since the launch of the last generation CR-V SUV and the carmaker is now working on the fifth-gen model, which is expected to be introduced in 2017. Instead of the V6 Honda is most likely to introduce a turbo motor from the brand's latest VTEC Turbo family of engines, most likely a 2.0-litre VTEC Turbo. This lightly disguised prototype spied during testing features a center-exiting exhaust, red seat stitching, some covered-up sporty gimcrackery in the lower front fascia, and a six-speed manual transmission.

The new vehicle is expected to debut in the latter half of 2017.
