Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Expected to be offered in a hybrid variant as well.

The Accord was given a facelift in the American market in July this year.

Set to rival the Toyota Camry primarily, and the upcoming 2016 VW Passat and Skoda Superb on price, the new Accord will be available in the conventional petrol and hybrid variants. Speaking to IndianAutosBlog, Mr. Raman Kumar Sharma, Sr. Vice President and Director, General Affairs, Honda Cars India, confirmed that the market launch of the Accord will take place next year.

The Accord packs a 2.4-liter four-cylinder i-VTEC engine that produces 185 hp and is mated to a CVT box, while the Accord Hybrid has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine linked to a 124 kW electric motor, which produce a combined output of 196 hp that is sent through an E-CVT.

The 2016 Accord sold in the U.S features new headlight and taillight clusters with LED tech, re-styled aluminium hood, optional 19-inch alloy wheels and redesigned front and rear bumpers.
