  • The 2.4-litre four-pot is expected to get direct injection while the 3.5-litre V6 should get a boost in power.

With its eternal rivals Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima coming up with completely new models for 2013, the pressure is on Honda to come up with a credible reply. But for those Honda fans among you who were looking forward to seeing a radically different saloon in the next iteration, here’s bad news.

From what we can see in this partially camouflaged test mule, the next Honda Accord isn’t going to be much different from the Accord Coupé concept previewed at the Detroit show, which in turn looked much like the current model. From whatever is revealed in the pics, the radiator grille comes across as similar to that of the muchdespised Crosstour.

However, the 2.4-litre four-pot is expected to get direct injection while the 3.5-litre V6 should get a boost in power.
