Honda said Monday it will reveal the next-generation Honda Accord sedan in an event July 14 in Detroit that will be livestreamed on YouTube.

Honda will officially introduce its tenth-generation Honda Accord on July 14, and to make us remember the date they chose to also drop by with a teaser sketch - which seems to imply the midsize sedan will be using similar design cues to the new Civic.

Honda is describing the new model as the "most fun-to-drive, premium and dramatically styled Accord ever". The overall appearance of the auto will be wider and lower with an athletic looking body.

The 2018 Honda Accord will be officially revealed on July 14, 2017, when complete details will be known. The V6 is out and has been replaced by a pair of turbocharged four-cylinder mills and the manufacturer's next-generation hybrid system. A Honda two-motor hybrid version will also be offered.

The 1.5-litre unit could be specified with either a regular CVT or a sporty 6-speed manual transmission.

And now Honda is giving the Civic's stable mate, the best-selling Accord, its own ten-gen treatment. If you can believe it, since its launch in 1976, more than 13 million Honda Accords have been sold.

Honda introduced the Accord to the USA market in 1976 and began assembling it in Marysville, Ohio since 1982, making it the first vehicle from a Japanese automaker to be built in the States.

 India will, of course, get the tenth generation of the Accord, but don't expect it to come anytime soon.
