    The Accord does take a striking resemblance to the Camry/Solara

    The #1 selling automobile in america to date is a close tie between Honda and Toyota. So, generally, they will be competing against eachother. Either way, they are both very reliable automobiles that will last a long time if maintained as the service manual specifies. :)

    Actually, he's correct.

    The Camry displaced the taurus and has been the best selling car, with the Accord battling it since 1995, I believe.

    Also, for whoever thought that other cars used to try to replicate the looks of Hondas...ahahaha, laughable. Honda has always prided itself on being an engineering based business, so reliability and function are the primary concerns. Honda has never tried to compete based on style. Honda tends to pick neglected market segments and build a vehicle that suites the segment's functional needs while having modest styling.

    Read, "The end of Detroit" by Maynard. It chronicles Honda and Toyota's business plan in relation to American manufacturers. The book also goes into explicit detail about the Ford Taurus and how it was the number one selling vehicle for quite a few years, until Ford attempted to go upscale by jacking the price and also abandoned the known and liked styling for the oval redesign before Ford abandoned the Taurus for greater profits in the SUV and truck segments.

    wtfe. take a look at the honda accord and it's styling changes and tell me toyota hasn't been trying to keep up over the last 15 years. and the civic? sheeeit. every nissan and toyota passenger model that wasn't trying to mime the accord was working on the civic lines. it's to the point where even fords (fusion) are trying to look like hondas.

    it could be me though. just trends i think i saw. wtfe.

    IMO.. the Accord looks like an Acura TSX and a TL mated

    The Accord's becoming upscale to the point where it might actually be in competition to some of the Acura offerings...seems like the management team at Honda didn't really think this through too well...

    Um, I think I'll just stick to the simple CRX. Thems cars is too fancy for me.
    I don't know that much about vehicle history, but I do believe a lot of cars try to copy the honda. Just personal opinion.

    They can never look better than the 5th gen. But I LOVE the new Civic Type R sedan it's fucking sweeeet. Sporty sedans are my favs.

    That 09 accord concept looks pretty damn NICE too and I like where Honda's going with the lights.

    That's pretty nice, but pretty big also. Seems like Accords have become more luxurious than mid-scale vehicles.

    :werd: I knew it looked familiar, just couldn't think of it.

    Wow... terribly on all fronts.

    The number one selling vehicle of all time is the Ford F-series truck. NOTHING comes close.

    It's a euro accord. Keep in mind that Geneva is in europe..... ;)


    It looks like a tsx, because it is a tsx.


    Edit:
    Check out the new Acura TSX, I'll bet it looks a lot like this:
