Honda had earlier made it clear that it would re-launch the Accord in India, though no official launch date was announced. The recent spy shot points towards an approaching launch, and verifies earlier speculations that suggest the next-gen Accord will make its Indian debut around this year's festive season (September-November 2016). Moreover, since the Accord was showcased at this year's Auto Expo, it makes more sense for the Japanese automaker to launch it in 2016 itself.

Speaking of the exterior, the front fascia gets a thick chrome grille flanked by large headlamp housing with LED detailing, you will see slimmer air dam on the bumper with LED foglamps, more sculpted hood. While the rear gets LED taillights and chrome detailing on the boot lid and rear bumper. The car spotted in Gurgaon was a petrol version.

Under the hood, the next generation Honda Accord will be offered in gets a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine that  delivers 185bhp with two transmission options - a 6-speed manual gearbox and a CVT. Moreover, Honda can also launch the new Accord in a hybrid variant, in order to compete with the Toyota Camry Hybrid and could be powered by a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine that works with AC Synchronous Permanent-Magnet Electric Motor to generate a combined output of 196bhp, mated to an e-CVT gearbox.

Once launched, the Honda Accord will compete with the likes of Skoda Superb, Toyota Camry, and upcoming Volkswagen Passat.
