More on the 2003 UK and European specification Honda Accord line: Britain's Autocar magazine this week says the Japanese-built cars will dump the current UK-built range's 1.8-litre entry level petrol engine and start off with a 160bhp two-litre with a 2.4-litre 180bhp unit optional. There will be no US-style V6, the magazine adds, but there will be a hot 2.4-litre Type R version with 250bhp that will debut, with the 140bhp diesel, in 2004.
