2008 Honda Accord
For years, the Honda Accord was the car to have if you were part of middle-class America. Those people looking for a car instead of a sport utility vehicle or a mini-van would go after the Accord. The 2008 Honda Accord will be in a different position, however. The Toyota Camry is creeping up on the Accord in sales as more people prefer the look of the Toyota. Other cars, such as the Kia Optima, also are making inroads in the same class as the 2008 Honda Accord.
The 2008 Honda Accord, then, will need to make some changes, and the folks at Honda have been doing just that. The new Accord will use the same design as the Honda Civic, which has changed drastically in recent years. Instead of the narrow look the current Accord has, the 2008 Honda Accord will have a wider wheelbase, which means that the car will be wider across. This design will make the car feel and look bigger than the current model, but that may work well for people who do not want the gas bill of an SUV but need the cargo room.
The 2008 Honda Accord also will have a sleek new design. Instead of the slightly boxy look the Accord still has, the new Accord will have a straight-line appearance, which is now popular among car buyers. The car will seem to glide from the sleek look, and Honda makers are hoping it goes over well. The 2008 model of this popular car also will feature a coupe version, which gives the car more appeal to single buyers who are looking for something a little sportier than the decidedly family car appeal of the sedan version of the Accord. Look for big changes in 2008 and beyond as Honda tries to keep the Accord a top selling car.
