The Montreal International Auto Show continues to run until January 27 at the Palais des Congres. Here are a few more vehicles that premiered at this year’s edition.
While Honda kept their Urban SUV concept car and the Acura NSX concept car for the North American International Auto Show, they did save some goodies for us. Making its global debut was the Honda GEAR Concept Study Model. According to Honda R&D Americas, Inc. Design Director Dave Marek, “Subcompact cars are usually either utilitarian, but uninspiring or they’re fun, zippy cars that are impractical and too expensive for the Gen-Y buyer. GEAR Concept tears down those walls – it’s practical but fun, customizable, connected and affordable. Everything that young, discerning urban buyers would want in a car. Sounds good in theory—let’s see if it makes it from the drawing board to the streets.
Honda also showed off their new 2013 Honda Accord Coupe HFP (that stands for Honda Factory Performance). The HFP takes the 2013 Accord Coupe EX-L V6 Navi, and adds better handling and attention-getting style. This sporty new Accord will only be available in Canada, and only in limited numbers. However, judging by this topspeed.com article, there will be a limited edition in the US as well.
If you’re looking for something a bit more luxurious, there’s the 2013 Honda Accord VIP, an up-scale version of the Accord Touring, with touches such as 20” chrome wheels, Air-Ride suspension, and custom audio, all wrapped in matte black.
