[cars name="Honda"]‘s Accord Tourer Concept doesn’t quite look like the car that will debut at the 2008 Geneva auto show later this year, but that doesn’t matter: We love it all the same. Yes, that’s right: We just said that we absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt love the way a Honda station wagon looks.
We must be on crack.
Regardless, Honda’s new styling direction is a good one. If previous Accords have stunk of middle-of-the-road conformity and simple inoffensiveness, then the current generation – the just-released coupe and sedan – effectively reverses that tide. Honda is mum as far as specification, but the production Accord Tourer’s technical specs aren’t likely to be much different from those of the European-market sedan.
(Oh, and in case you’re wondering, this car bears no relation to the American-market Accord. The European Accord is our Acura TSX, and we don’t get the wagon version of that car anyway, which makes all of this moot. Sad, but moot.)
