HONDA ACCORD COUPE
Honda revealed the first images of the much anticipated all-new 2013 Honda Accord Sedan and Accord Coupe, set to go on sale in fall 2012. The most sculpted Accord ever delivers an even more spacious and luxurious passenger cabin wrapped in an upscale, sophisticated exterior designed to stand the test of time.

The 2013 Accord’s styling is expressive, sophisticated and premium. Starting in the front, a bold new grille imparts a distinctive and dynamic tension that complements the powerful look of the hood’s multiple styling lines. A strong side character line flows through the door handles and flares upward toward the rear of the vehicle to further convey a sense of motion. A deep contour in the rocker panel firmly grounds its visual presence to the road and smartly turns upward to convey a sporty attitude. In the back, the inward slope where the fenders taper into the trunk and C-pillars is designed to convey a powerful, athletic stance from the rear.
The all new Volvo V40 is a sporty five door hatchback that sets new ride handling, fuel efficiency and safety standards in its class. Its eye-catching coupe design, which uses styling cues from the C30 coupe and classic P1800ES Volvo, is sportier and sleeker than the homogeneous class norm. Special attention has been given to handling, steering feel, agility and ride comfort. Volvo engineers believe that the Volvo V40 is now the class benchmark for dynamic fineness.
MERCEDES BENZ NAFA CONCEPT
Congested streets, parking space at a premium and long tailbacks raised new questions in motor vehicle research. Mercedes-Benz answered them in 1981 with the concept study. Owing to four wheel steering the car could even be parked forwards into tight spaces. Its turning circle was all of 5.7 metres. Even where the gap to other vehicles on each side was small, two sliding doors permitted convenient entry and exit.
