Honda Accord Loses Manual Transmission

Along w/loosing the M/T (which I'm not surprised of since the lost of them seems to be the trend across most vehicles currently) I found this statement interesting "An updated Accord is coming for the 2021 model year, presumably with new styling and features." Does this mean the end of Generation X Accord's? :unsure:

Interesting news. This has been done since 12/19, and we are just hearing about it now..
Unfortunately, they just aren't in demand, and people just don't want manual transmissions. That,
coupled with the tremendous engineering steps made with the automatics tn the past few years
yields itself to the demise of the Accord manual.

As far as the OP's question about the end of Generation X, I say absolutely not. In my humble opinion, a facelift and option deletion does not make a generation change. :)

My statement was somewhat in jest, however I think the 10th Generation only has a few more years (if that much) before Gen 11 is introduced. If you look at the history of the Honda Accord new generations are introduced within 3 - 6 years. Time will tell if Generation 11 will be introduced in 2021.

I love my '19 manual. But I get it; sedans are now a niche market, & the 6-speeds are a rounding-error of said niche. Good thing I pulled the trigger last Halloween.

Wonder if the '21 update is a mid-cycle refresh and not a brand-new model. Usually Honda's get a styling update around model year 3, '21 would be the 4th year of Gen X so its due.

I doubt that there will be new styling for the 2021 Accord. Based off of Honda's history, the 10th Gen Accord will be from 2018-2022 (a 5 year styling life). This has been Honda's formula since the 6th Generation (1998-2002).

Of the 5 year run, usually, the 1st 3 years are cosmetically the same with minor upgrades to technology. The last 2 years have the same body style with a "new style" grill and tail lights.

Looking at videos and pictures of what the 2021 Accord is expected to be, it looks the same as the current Accords.
