New Accord looks like VY Calais

The new Honda Accord looks like the VY Calais.
Do you think so too?

I don't think it does too much, I like the wheels on the Accord though.

I thought it was a Mazda6 at first glance.

Looks streets ahead of the sleep-inducing previous Accord model.

Nice wheels too!

Also good to see the bland badges are looking way better... will be interesting to see when the boy racers get a hold of them. They'll have kittens when they find out they don't have to replace the tailights on the Mazda6

As we say over here, it's fooly suck. Wish the VY did look like that :s6:

WHATS THE GO WITH ALL THESE 10" BADGES IN THE GRILLE!!!

Yes, I am yelling about this. Why the hell does Honda feel the need to put such an overbearing and just-plain-silly sized badge in it's grille?
