The Honda Accord has been hit with a drop in sales during the past few months. Some analysts have blamed it on the arrival of the Honda Civic, which has moved closer to the territory of the Accord.
Some people are saying that Honda Civic is just one inch smaller in size than the Accord and of course it is cheaper and lighter. The engine is the 1.5 litre and this is the turbocharged 4 cylinder engine.
Therefore it would make a lot of sense for people to go for the Honda Civic rather than choose the Honda Accord. This is due to the Accord no longer being appealing to the eye. Honda realizes this and they have been teasing about something unique coming with the new version of the Accord.
At the moment they are not saying too much but it is thought that the Honda Accord might take the SH-AWD engine from the Honda Acura. This would give it a driving experience that is unique and this is something that the Honda Civic will not offer.
