The 2008 Honda family of cars and trucks builds on the excitement of a robust 2007 model year highlighted by the introduction of an all-new CR-V and Honda’s newest addition, the Fit. Significant developments for the 2008 model year include the debut of an all-new Accord later in 2007 and an Odyssey set to undergo a transformation with updated exterior and interior styling along with enhanced feature content.

Several members of Honda’s family will introduce new trims to their lineups for 2008. The S2000 adds a club-racer inspired S2000 CR with features and equipment designed to appeal to weekend racing enthusiasts. The 2008 Pilot introduces two new trims, the Value Package and the Special Edition. Both new offerings build upon popular trims by packaging different, highly-requested features. The 2008 Civic will offer a leather package for the first time in its history and will add a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) to its entire lineup.

2008 Honda Accord
An all-new 2008 Honda Accord sedan will debut in Fall 2007, and Honda unveiled the fully redesigned coupe concept in January.
