Honda has revealed the 2016 Accord ahead of its official launch in August 2015. The new Accord was unmasked at the Japanese carmaker’s R&D facility in Silicon Valley, California. On the outside, the new Honda Accord gets a reworked chrome garnished front grille, revised bumpers, slightly reshaped bonnet, new 19-inch alloy wheels, LED fog lights, taillights and headlights; the latter being identical to the ones found on the Acura TL (Accord’s upmarket cousin).
