Spied on the Street! 2008 Accord Sedan!

 Credibility Rating: 10

We just got a new batch of pics of the 2008 Accord Sedan. These are the first known spy shots. There are about a dozen shots, but we picked four to show you. The vehicles they snagged appear to be 4-cylinder versions. Recall that Honda's all new Advanced VTEC is expected to debut on the Accords this fall, most likely with the 4-cylinder version. The V6 is expected to combine big power (perhaps as much as 280hp) as well as cylinder-cut technology to improve fuel economy. Watch for these to appear in showrooms sometime in September of this year.

Interestingly I received word a week or so ago that certain Honda associates had been promised a bonus if no spy shots of the Accord sedan were to find their way to the public prior to July 15th. If true, sorry guys. UPDATE: A few denials to this particular rumor have been registered, so maybe nobody will miss out on any incentives after all...

Testing of the 2008 Accord is clearly in full effect nowadays. Chris Doane snagged these pics of what appears to be an EX (4-cylinder) version of the 2008 Accord sedan. Check out the shameless emulation of BMW's handsome 5-series wheels on this one! If you ask me, this car's looking pretty sharp in this formal black color. I can't wait to see how the V6 models are trimmed out.

There were a number of photos in this new batch but we purchased as many as our budget would permit (perhaps more than our budget permits...) so don't be surprised if you see photos of the same car from slightly different angles popping up elsewhere on the web.
