Honda Siel is said to be working on a final facelift for the current Accord before the new one arrives in 2013.
Not having a diesel engine in the entire line-up has definitely taken a toll on Honda’s fortunes in India. Add to it the constant blows from existing and newly launched models and variants like the 2012 Hyundai Sonata and the economical Skoda Superb Ambition and you’ll know how difficult it is getting for Honda to sell their ageing Accord. It is still a worthy contender, no doubt, but it could be getting ready for its last facelift now – before the all-new model arrives 2013.
If the word floating in the air is to be believed, then Honda Siel is working towards adding a little more bling to the existing Accord. We are told that the taillights are getting a minor redesign by way of re-arranged detailing. There will be a generous dose of chrome garnish as well – on the taillights as well as on the rear bumper. At the front too, the grille and the bumper will get additional chrome lining for a more premium stance.
Honda Siel had given the Accord a mid-life facelift back in 2011 and had also added a few new features to breathe fresh air into the model. The upcoming facelift, if true, will probably be the last update that the eighth generation model will receive. The all-new ninth generation Accord will arrive in 2013 and is expected to have a diesel engine option too. Stay tuned for more!
