No Type-R for Honda Accord

Honda has no plans to launch a hot Type-R version of the new Accord, according to well placed sources. The all-new model, which is making its debut at the Geneva show later this month, doesn’t fit the Type-R brand according to insiders. ‘A Type-R Accord would not suit the character of the car or our target audience’ said one. Honda is making it clear that it wants the new saloon and estate to finally propel the company into competing with more premium marques such as BMW and Audi, but it’s not ruling out sporty derivatives altogether. The plan is to offer more aggressive body kits and lowered suspension in the same vein as Audi’s extremely successful S-line models. However they will be powered by the normal engine line up: a choice of 154bhp 2.0-litre and 197bhp 2.4-litre petrol engines and a new 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel. A more powerful version of this diesel is also in the wings. The new Accord saloon arrives in showrooms in June, while the Tourer goes on sale in September.

    This is a rather simple technical point. The le1es in front of your eyes shift the focus into the far distance. I don&1quo;t think a marketing campaign so heavily focussed on social media could afford openly lying about something like that.

    If you have one, can you comment on what it’s like watching a movie? Is the screen really like as if you’re in the cinema – would you say it’s IMAX size or just fairly large? How much would you recommend the experience? Thank you.
