Patent images reveal the design of the upcoming Honda Accord.

The next-generation Honda Accord has a revised sedan that looks sleeker and more contemporary than the current model,

according to patent images that have been posted online. With shorter headlights and foglights and a wide,

two-bar grille up front, the side profile looks to reveal a somewhat wider wheelbase and updated rear haunches.

The new design has sharp taillights and a sizable tailgate with an integrated spoiler at the back.

There are currently no interior photographs available, but it is anticipated to get an updated infotainment system with a number of comfort and driving aid technology.

Overall, Honda's facelift is remarkable and promises an elegant and appealing appearance for the forthcoming Accord.
