The design of SR-9 is very similar to European Accord which was probably used as a basis of the concept.

Re: Dongfeng Honda SR-9

I think you meant the Acura TSX. The TL is completely different.

This SR-9 is simply the European Accord with different taillights by the way.

Re: Dongfeng Honda SR-9

Dongfeng Honda launched the Honda Spirior today, launching what they claim to be a premium sports car for the Chinese market place.

The Spirior name is a mash up of the two English workds Spirit and Superior, the Chinese name has been set as 思铂睿 (sai bo rui), a phonetic translation of the English name.

The car itself is essentially the Euro market Honda Accord, or a US market Acura TSX. Instead of packing the V6 engines that other markets get, the Spirior will have to make do with a 4 cylinder 2.4l i-Vtec engine packing 225nm of torque, delivering 133kw of power (181bhp) and mated to a Sequential Sport Shift gearbox 5 speed automatic gearbox. The Spirior needs a leisurely 10.8 seconds to hit 100kph.

Today’s launch will see a 2.4l VTI Luxury model, VTI-S 2.4l Super Luxury, and a VTI-S Navigation super luxury model being launched, in total there are five different specifications to choose from, and six different colors.

It can be seen that Honda also manufactures too much of vehicles for the different regions or other than that it or any other car company delivers only the selected version of cars to the other countries. Many people are still unaware of this car also because it has not been delivered to many countries. Anyways the car is really good to look at.
