These two sketches, allegedly previewing the Russian market 2013 Accord sedan, were said to be released by Honda's local division on the sidelines of the ongoing Moscow International Motor Salon 2012.
There are a couple of things about these renderings that immediately caught our attention, the first being the car shown here is essentially identical to the North American 2013 Honda Accord sedan revealed in the beginning of August and the second that it is wearing German license plates.
If true, this suggests Honda may offer the same version of the new Accord on both sides of the Atlantic – though each with its own engine lineup.
We will remind you that the current version of the European Accord is the same car as the North American Acura TSX offered with a different set of engines including a diesel option.
Talking about Acura, Honda's Russian arm announced that its premium brand will enter the local market in 2014 offering a comprehensive range of sedan and crossover models as well as the next NSX supercar starting from 2015 (which would partially explain why the Russian market Accord is the same as the North American model).
We'll try to find more details about the European and Russian market Accord sedan and update you accordingly.
