It is also indicated that the company will now shift its focus towards selling smaller cars in large numbers rather than the sales of larger cars, whose customers are comparatively less in number. Though, it is still speculated in the market that a new variant of Accord will hit the markets by 2014-15.

As Honda is now aware of the shortcomings that this vehicle faced, it is expected to bounce back soon with major improvements in Accord. The new variant is likely to feature both, petrol and diesel, engines as the pervious engine was the main reason why its competitors gained the lead.

As per market reports, Honda managed to sell only 272 units of the sedan in India in the past eight months. The company has not been able to maintain its pace in the bigger cars segment of late keeping in mind the fierce competition that it is facing from other carmakers.
