It never fails to amaze us that no matter where or when, there are always car enthusiasts lurking around who are more than happy to snap as many shots of upcoming models as possible.
High up in the forests of Canada, Honda had brought the new 2008 Accord for a photo shoot, hoping that up in the mountains they would be guaranteed a car paparazzi free experience. Not so.
This is the U.S. spec Accord, we expect the 2008 Australian Accord Sedan (not Euro) to look very similar to the photos. Of course Australia is not privileged with the Accord Coupe (pictured down the page in red), and there are no rumours for that to change.
There are however some interesting reports for the new Accord, according to Honda sources, the new car will not only improve on all aspects of old, but it will also utilize cylinder deactivation technology (currently found in the Chrysler 300C), meaning it will deactive two of its six cylinders when cruising.
The U.S. spec versions will come with a choice of a 3.5-liter V6 with about 190kWs while the 2.4-litre 4-cylinder will output around 130kWs.
Honda Australia are yet to comment on the 08 Accord.
