Honda Accord 2024 spy next-generation smooth design

Brian Williamscar and driver

  • This is the next generation Honda Accord, which will likely arrive next year as the 2024 model.
  • Honda intends the hybrid vehicle to become a more important part of the lineup and aims to make up 50 percent of sales.
  • We think the 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter gas-turbocharged engines will last.

    The Accord may not be Honda’s bread and butter — which would be the CR-V crossover nowadays — but the top-grossing ten sedan will usher in a new generation soon. These spy photos show off its new design, which looks clean and simple and isn’t drastically different from the current 10th generation model that’s been around since 2018.

    Up front, narrow headlights surround what appears to be a relatively modest grille. There are minimal surfaces along the sides, and the taillights seem to extend the width of the rear end and wrap around the fenders.

    Honda has confirmed that it intends to make the next-generation Accord hybrid a larger part of the sales mix, with the company aiming for hybrid versions to make up at least 50 percent of sales of its CR-V, Accord and Civic models. . Honda also says that the hybrid cars will be “the best and highest-performing models in the lineup.” Hopefully, this means that the current Accord’s 212-horsepower hybrid will gain power, not that Honda plans to drop the Accord’s 252-hp 252-horsepower four-cylinder option. The turbocharged 1.5-liter Inline-four will likely remain the base engine, although it may have some revisions.

    Given that Honda dropped the six-speed manual transmission from the Accord a few years ago, we unfortunately think it’s unlikely that this transmission will return for the new generation. A continuously variable automatic transmission will be standard equipment. Several Accord competitors, including the Kia K5, Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry, have added an all-wheel drive option in recent years, but we doubt Honda will go that route.

    Expect the interior of the 2024 Accord to adopt a styling similar to the newer Civic and the upcoming CR-V, both featuring the distinctive honeycomb texture of the air vents and a tablet-style touchscreen located atop the center of the dashboard.

    We think 2023 will be the last year for the current Accord, which means that this new model will likely arrive sometime next year as a 2024 vehicle. Honda has already said that the new Accord hybrid will follow the debut of the 2023 CR-V scheduled for 12 July, but did not give an exact time for the arrival of the new sedan.
