Today's edition of Automotive News publishes two spy shots of the new Accord Coupe. The caption reads, "Honda over the years has been uncannily successful at keeping its redesigned models under wraps, often until the day it starts shipping vehicles. Not this time. Picture here is the redesigned 2003 Accord coupe, snapped nearly 2.5 months before the vehicle is supposed to go public." Go to www.automotivenews.com and you can see a very small snapshot of the front page, with the picture of the car. Unfortunately I don't have a scanner or I would post them myself. You can also go to a newsstand and look at a copy.

It looks terrific, and is much more stylized than the previous generation. The back somewhat resembles a Mercedes (slightly) and the front is aggressive with larger headlights than you would expect for an Accord. All in all I like.

the back looks like a cross between the 3.2CL and the Mercedes C-Class

Anyone notice how low the door handle is? Looks kind of weird.

eh....
from the back I see Audi TT (good) and also New Beetle (bad!) along with Solara (back fender area looks weirdly disproportianate)

The front is like a RSX/Celica/Stratus Coupe mix :barf:

OK. I'm really liking the looks of the coupe. If it really comes with a 6 speed on the V6 and navi, my next car purchase decision just got a lot harder to make. Do I go with the 2003 CL 6 speed or the Accord? Any word on the suspension on the Accord? I'm guessing it will be more like the CL-P than the CL-S. Ditto on the engine? Once (if) then kill the CL, is the TL going to be the only car with the Type S engine? Also, any word on weight?
