So it’s back to the good ol’ times, but why? Well, the new Accord that was shown in pre-production concept form at the Detroit Auto Show has something to do with it. Also, a really early refresh is coming for he Civic launched just last year, as Honda tries to rectify its errors.

“It will be the year of the complete rebound,” Ito said at the company’s Tokyo headquarters, says Bloomberg. “Sales in North America will lead the recovery. We’ll introduce a fully revamped Accord in the fall, and that will be a big plus to our sales.”
