The all-new 11th-gen Honda Accord is shaping up to be a real looker

Honda has just unveiled the first teaser images to the upcoming 11th-generation all-new Honda Accord, which will make its official debut next month. The all-new model will replace the current model, just five years after the 10th-generation Honda Accord made its debut back in 2017.

It’s the usual shadowy photos, but they do at least give us a good glimpse of the all-new Honda Accord’s front and rear-end. As you’d expect from a completely new generation model, all of the sheet metal here look brand new, with design touches borrowed from the other newer models in its stable.

The front in particular takes on the new styling direction introduced on the all-new Honda HR-V and CR-V, where the previous signature shield design replaced by a large hexagonal grille, flanked by slim three-dimensional headlights – the latter seemingly omitting the traditional lens cover, much like what Kia did with the Carnival.

Round the back, the tail lights are a huge departure from the current model’s design, now taking on a full-width appearance, though the profile of the side enclosures do somewhat resemble that of the Civic. From the short and raked boot, it seems that the all-new 11th-generation Honda Accord will also still carry the fastback-like silhouette.

The sole interior photo of the car focuses on the new 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment display, which will be the largest touchscreen in a Honda ever. The operating system here looks somewhat similar to the marque’s latest design, but it now runs on Android, as revealed by the Play Store and Google Assistant buttons on the main screen.

Aside from these, though, the only other things we can see from this photo is a small portion of the instrument cluster which appears to be fully digital, as well as – thank heavens – a physical volume knob right underneath the floating central display. We also catch a small glimpse of the air vent, which looks to be similar to the neat single-piece air vent mesh on the Civic. We like.

The display does reveal the fact that the all-new 11th-generation Accord will also be offered with a hybrid powertrain, which Honda says will be “more responsive and fun-to-drive”. But what exactly is changed? Stay tuned, as the all-new Accord’s reveal isn’t too far away at this point.
