Looking through the 2018 Honda Accord configurator, most members here should be able to come to a conclusion on what they want and for me its what you see below. Specifically its a Kona Coffee Metallic Touring. I'm not going to get into details on the spec, but as far as design and color goes, although its the highest spec Accord, it just doesn't look better to me in any other configuration. Can't wait to finally see one in person.

Feel free to post pictures of your spec in this thread

I do find the trunk a bit odd in it's shape, the side foam seems to be encroaching on the cargo area making it look more narrow near the cabin.

Still looks a bit odd to me because the sides aren't flat all the way through, but it does show me the grocery bag hooks that were hidden in my image.

Why are you so concerned about some interior fabric cover that means nothing in relation to the vehicles design. Being part of the truck, its in the most insignificant area possible. Even if you were trying to figure out size and dimensions it would still be insignificant. What would it being flat all the way though do for you? Enlighten us.

Probably Xtream is a big-time shopper, that would make sense to me :D But for real, I don't understand why you're so concerned about it... My wife drives Toyota Yaris and even its tiny trunk has enough room to fit all the shopping bags.

I saw a black sport Accord earlier this morning, and it does look great in person. Amazing bodywork in a world of overdesigned cars. Also, I noticed how quiet this car is, can't wait to take it for a ride.

Costco trips, winter sports gear, etc needs every bit of trunk space available and sometimes things needs to go in sideways. But it's a hurdle you overcome when needed I suppose.

I haven't seen a wild Accord yet, but I'd imagine the side profile looks every bit as sleek as the images.

I doubt you need that space all the time which is rare for most people shopping in this segment but if that's you then you probably needed an SUV to begin with, hence the why its a utility vehicle. But if you can get away with roof top carriers, the Accord might still be an option for you.

So I'm having a hard time determining if this is a future concept design, or if this was an original design of the new 2018 Accord that was changed. The back end looks pretty similar to what is offered currently. What do you guys think? Personally I think its a little much.

That was an old accord concept from 2016 so it's pretty much obsolete since the new Accord is out already. No doubt another concept will debut when the outgoing model is due for a refresh.

Its an older concept but its bolder styling design philosophy still lives on in the accord and other new products from Honda from what I have seen. It didn't live on entirely but comparing the new Accord to that concept its hard to ignore the influence it has had so far.

Of course it'll influence the current generation of car design, but by the time the next Accord is due for an overhaul, they'll have released a new concept featuring what their next gen styling is headed.

Have to say that I'm glad the new Accord adopted more from the rear end of that concept than the front. Its definitely obvious from the styling of the new Accord however, that they were trying to do something unique with the grill/bumper set up for this generation. Wonder how long it'll be before we start to see aftermarket kits come to market.

Often as soon as owners can get their hands on these that's when aftermarket parts makers do as well. So don't be surprised if you see parts makers reaching out to owners on communities such as this.

Why are you so concerned about...
Let me introduce to you the process of selling vehicles to hybrid customers if you think his concern isn't valid. :wink:
