2024 Honda Accord Redesign: Will Accord Be Redesigned? It seems like Honda’s midsize sedan will continue to be produced for at least one more generation after this one. According to our informants, a prototype of what is anticipated to be a 2024 Honda Accord was seen undergoing testing on public roads in the Midwest. This provides us with some insight into what to anticipate from the ever-present family automobile.
Given the present status of the market for vehicles with four doors, we would be willing to forgive Honda for giving the Accord a new coat of paint and then immediately putting it back on the market.
After all, with a vehicle that is intended for buyers who are at least one generation away from the general automotive zeitgeist, how much newness is actually necessary? In addition, how much extra is really required when the vehicle in issue is as good as the present Accord? In light of what we have seen so far, it seems likely that the final product will be something that lies in between a complete overhaul and a light makeover.
As can be seen in the photographs above, the prototype has the same basic dimensions and body lines as the final product. The shape of the upswept lower rockers and the short rear deck seem to have been carried over nearly entirely unmodified; however, the new vehicle looks to have a decklid lip spoiler that is more apparent.
It seems like they kept the prominent groove that runs under the greenhouse from the front fender all the way back to the back of the vehicle. It’s possible that those side mirrors are exactly the same. On the other hand, despite a general rear taper that looks to match the current body form, we are witnessing what is likely to be a total makeover of the design of the rear lighting and bumper. This is the case despite the fact that the rear bumper appears to have remained the same.
Although the camouflage at the front is doing a good job, it seems that there are also some significant discrepancies in this area. Either the massive, one-piece grille treatment is turned upside down or flipped 180 degrees entirely.
The new grille has a design that is very reminiscent to the one seen on the new HR-V. The headlights seem to have been deliberately detached from the grille assembly, and the LED “signature” element has been relocated from the bottom of the housing to the top of the housing. And in place of the hefty lip extensions that stick out from both sides of the bumper cover, we find a slimmer lip that spans the whole width of the lower grille and acts as a delineator for its edge.
Renderings of the 2024 Honda Accord a Preview
Late in the previous month, we were given our first look at the next Honda Accord refresh, which is now in the works. Kolesa.ru has published several unauthorised drawings that aim to preview the new look, despite the fact that Honda has covered it with a camouflage wrap.
Although the spy images don’t show a lot of information, it seems like the new Accord will be the same size as the one that is being discontinued. However, Honda plans to give it a significant makeover, and the images depict a sedan that borrows aesthetic aspects from the latest generation of the Civic.
The new Accord will have headlights that are more slender, a larger grille, and a lower bumper that is more streamlined. The covert photographs revealed that the vehicle’s grille had camouflage, but these drawings make no mention of it.
It is impossible for the camouflage to conceal the fact that the Honda has a roofline that sweeps backwards at the rear. However, we anticipate that the rear end of the Accord will follow the front with a design that is more mature and will embrace the taillight style of the Civic.
The images depict the Accord with a light bar linking the taillights; this is a potential design item that will be included in the final product. The covert photographs seem to show the trunk to have an object sandwiched in between the lighting components.
There is a chance that Honda may use the same platform for the next-generation model as it does for the existing one. If this happens, then the current lineup of available powertrains will most likely be carried over to the next sedan. Both a 192-horsepower (143-kilowatt) 1.5-liter four-cylinder and a 252-horsepower (187-kilowatt) four-cylinder are available for the current generation of the Honda Accord.
In addition, Honda provides the Accord Hybrid, which is capable of producing 212 horsepower (158 kW), and the manufacturer may make some adjustments to the new model.
2024 Honda Accord Design Revealed in Patent Drawings
Because of the design drawings that we created earlier this year, we already have a very decent idea of what to anticipate from the forthcoming eleventh generation of the Honda Accord, which will debut in 2024. Now that the whole design of the next-generation midsize vehicle has been discovered on the website of the Brazilian government, we can evaluate how correct our predictions were.
Since the purpose of the patent is just to establish the proposed production design, the Brazilian patent site provides very little real explanation of the invention, despite the fact that the patent photos provide a complete 360-degree view at the 2024 Accord in the form of a series of drawings.
However, it is clear that our prognosis of a complete light bar for the taillights was correct, since this is reflected in the renderings that have been released. It is also clear that the next Accord will maintain the general basic and sleek fastback type design of the existing vehicle, but with even more simplifications.
The front end has a six-pointed grille form that is flanked by two flat, long headlights. This design is certainly partially influenced by the most recent design of the 2023 Honda CR-V, which was only presented in its entirety the week before last.
The overhangs also seem to be a little bit longer over the front and back wheels, which suggests that the tenth-generation wheelbase will remain the same. However, the total length might possibly increase, which could result in additional space inside the vehicle as well as in the trunk. The entire appearance seems to have been influenced by more luxury cars, which may be the direction Honda is trying to take its heritage sedan in the future.
Digital Life Is Breathed Into the All-New 2024 Honda Accord
The nameplate of the Honda Accord is rather persistent. It is one of the vehicles that sells the most units worldwide, independent of the body style, and we are prepared to bet that it will survive the EV revolution as well, despite the fact that the next model for the next generation will still use internal combustion engines.
The front end is still easily identifiable as being that of a Honda, but the profile lines have what may be described as a “suspiciously American” aspect to them. Perhaps they are evocative of a contemporary Cadillac. Not that we would raise a fuss over it.
The design of the vehicle’s rear end is another intriguing part of this image. It really brings to mind the rear end of the Audi A7 Sportback, despite the fact that the taillights on the Audi are much more slender yet having a form that is very similar.
As for what we should anticipate in terms of powertrains, we are aware that Honda intends to place a stronger focus on hybridization, which, if rumors are to be believed, will result in the next-generation Accord hybrid having a higher maximum horsepower rating.
We anticipate that the present engine configurations will be carried over into the next-generation Accord since it will be built on the same basis as the current vehicle. However, there may be some changes or upgrades made to them. Either a turbocharged I-4 engine with a capacity of 1.5 liters and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) or a turbocharged I-4 engine with a capacity of 2.0 liters and a 10-speed automatic gearbox would be required for this.
We anticipate that a hybrid version will once again be offered, which will combine a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine with an electric motor. It is certain that the vehicle will have front-wheel drive, but it is unknown if Honda would consider producing an all-wheel drive model in light of the increasing demand for such vehicles among other manufacturers.
