  • Honda Accord (Japan and Europe seventh generation)


    The seventh-generation Honda Accord for the European and Japanese markets is a mid-sized sedan and wagon, produced by Honda from 2002 to 2007. It competed with the Opel/Vauxhall Vectra, Ford Mondeo, Volkswagen Passat, Mazda 6 and the Toyota Avensis, and upon its launch in October 2002 it won 2002-03 Japan Car of the Year. This generation of the European and Japanese Accord, previously separate models, were consolidated into one version designed to be more competitive in the European market. It became a top seller in its class in Australia, where over 45,000 sedans were sold between 2003 and 2008. The car was also exported to the United States and Canada, where it was sold as the Acura TSX. Outside North America the first Honda-built diesel engine was offered. In the Japanese market, the Accord was merged into the Torneo range to compete against the Mazda Atenza and Subaru Legacy. A variant of the larger North American Accord was sold in Japan as the Honda Inspire to compete in the entry-level luxury sedan class.

  • Mitsuoka Nouera


    The is a mid size saloon from the Japanese car brand Mitsuoka. The Nouera is a 4-door saloon model, based on the Honda Accord. The front and rear styling is modified: a chrome grille and twin circular headlamps have been added at the front to give the car classic English looks, and differently shaped rear lights have been used. The interior is similar to the Accord's, with wood trim and leather seats available. There are 3 models: Nouera 20ST Nouera 20LX Nouera 24LXBoth 20ST and 20LX have 4WD or FWD, with a 2.0L DOHC i-VTEC engine (152 or 155eHP). The 24LX model has only FWD with the 2.4L DOHC i-VTEC engine (200eHP). The 24LX has 16-inch rims, where the 20ST/LX has 15-inch as standard. Length of both models is 4860 mm. Wheelbase is 2670 mm. The Nouera was of a similar size to the original Galue and Ryoga, and seems to provide an alternative to both models. The Nouera was the first non-keicar made by Mitsuoka that was not based on a Nissan model. At this time Nissan's main competitor with the Accord (the Primera) had unusually futuristic styling; a Mitsuoka version of the contemporary Primera may have been too difficult to style harmoniously.
