It looks like the current generation of the legendary sedan could receive its first update already after three years. The famous mid-size car has been praised for its exceptional quality for decades. It is considered as a class-leaders for years but the company wants to secure that position with constant updates. The 2022 Honda Accord could bring lots of them, according to the latest reports. We could see some styling changes, as well as some novelties on the inside. However, the most interesting novelty could be a rumored coupe body style, which still waits for the official confirmation.
- Efficient engines
- Amazing handling
- Exceptional interior quality
- Plenty of safety features
- Unusual trunk design
The current, tenth generation of the Accord came a year ago. It is still very fresh, but the company wants to bring a few novelties that could even improve its already excellent position in the market. Of course, base design characteristics will remain unchanged. On the other side, few tweaks at front seem quite possible. We could see some changes on headlights, front fascial and similar things. Also, new color options, as well as wheels designs seem quite likely too. Still, the most interesting thing about the 2022 Honda Accord should be a new body style in the offer. It looks like we are about to see a coupe body style once again, after few years of break. The new version still waits for the official confirmation.
The cabin of the current model looks spectacular. It features probably the best quality among all models in the class, so we really don’t see any potential space for maneuvering at the moment. On the other side, we could see few more standard features in the offer. For example, a smartphone integration would seem like a nice addition, while some reports suggest even more novelties that include things like head-up display, blind spot monitoring, parking sensors etc. Combined with excellent materials quality, the 2022 Honda Accord should be way ahead of its main competitors Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata.
With the recent redesign, the Accord has switched to smaller engines. Instead of larger atmospheric units, the new model relies on smaller turbocharged engines. Base models come with a new 1.5-liter unit, which is good for about 192 horsepower. In higher trims, you can count on a powerful 2.0-liter engine which features around 250 hp. For comparison, the Camry still uses a large V6, which is much thirstier and has less torque. Speaking of the fuel economy, a hybrid version is in the offer as well.
2020 Honda Accord Release Date and Price
Expect to see the 2022 Honda Accord sometime in the second half of the next year. Despite potential changes and more standard equipment, base models should keep the same price, which starts around $23,500.
