With competition growing steeper in an already cut throat segment, Honda is bringing an all-new Accord sedan out for 2013 to remain relevant in an area where many of its competitors already offer revised vehicles.
While we’re expecting the incoming model to look a lot like the 2012, we haven’t seen much of the new car at all. Spy photos have been surprisingly scarce which is why this almost undressed version of the new model being caught on the streets is almost a little surprising.
Snagged on a cell phone by someone in traffic, we only get a glimpse of the tail end, but this is the closest photo we’ve seen to the actual production car. In it, you can see that the 2013 model will have a new rear that looks almost like a BMW 3 Series. Larger tail lights and a trunk that almost looks like it has a thick layer on top, reminiscent of the controversial Chris Bangle styled Bimmers.
We also recently learned that there will be a sport package for next year, probably to compete with the Camry SE, though details on any actual upgrades are still in the dark.
