The forthcoming Honda Accord's design has been leaked thanks to a patent application.

Posted patent images show a new generation of the Honda Accord will feature a sedan with a more streamlined and modern appearance than the current generation.

When viewed from the side, the vehicle appears to have a slightly wider wheelbase and updated rear haunches in addition to

its shorter headlights, foglights, and wide, two-bar grille up front.

Sharp taillights and a large tailgate with an integrated spoiler are new features.

There are no interior photos available at this time,

but it is likely to get a modern infotainment system with various forms of convenience and driver assistance.

Honda's redesign of the upcoming Accord is remarkable as a whole, and it promises to be both elegant and appealing.
