For four generations Europe has fielded a smaller version of the Accord compared to the one sold in the US and across Asia. From early 2015 this situation will be no more.
Indeed, across Europe Honda will no longer offer an Accord model, citing “declining market trends” for large sedans and wagons, with private buyers opting for similarly priced, but smaller vehicles, from luxury marques. For its competitors, like the Ford Mondeo, Opel Insignia and Mazda 6, most purchases are now made by corporate and fleet customers.
The current generation EU Accord was also sold in the US as the Acura TSX, which has already been withdrawn in favour the TLX. In Australia and New Zealand, the European Accord was marketed as the Accord Euro and sold alongside the US/Asian version.
