I test drove (extensively) the new accord over a year ago in the US when visiting. I thought I might want to buy one in Thailand. I read every review I could find and was quite disappointed when I actually drove it. I drove both the hybrid and the EL. The seats are hard as rock and it sits too low. The car itself is a blast to drive and handles like a Bimmer almost, so clearly it's a driver's car unlike the Camry.

 

Recently I went to the Honda dealer here to check it out and after sitting in it walked away with the same impressions. But, seriously, to wait over a year for the car to arrive in Thailand in just inexcusable. Anyway, just like in the US, most of us have moved on to SUVs anyway....

I'm sorry to say it, but saloons (sedans) are going the way of the dodo bird. Hell, there is even a new Roller SUV, the Cullinan, so I guess if you can't beat em you join em.
