Honda has decided to start a little early in the hype-building game for the all new Honda Accord Tourer.  Set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 4, the new Accord Tourer will be targeting the BMW 3-Series and the rest of the compact executive car class.

Introduced as a concept car at Frankfurt last year, Honda pushed development of the five-door Accord Tourer rapidly, bringing out this production version just five months later.  The Honda Accord Tourer will keep many of the styling cues of its siblings, but as we can see from the close-up photos provided by the automaker, there will be some key differences to the shape of the headlights and LED taillights.  Driving capabilities should be similar to the other Accords, while designing the interior to be as sleek and comfortable as possible for everyone in the cabin.

Although the press release says that both the "new Accord and Accord Tourer models will be unveiled" at the event, the Honda press office has told WorldCarFans that the lid will be lifted off the Tourer only.  However, we wonder if Honda will in fact show off the Euro version of the Accord spied last October.

Sadly, the Japanese automaker has refused request to release specifications about the car, but we do know the car will be Euro 5 compliant (like the rest of the Accord lineup), and that it will posess a bevy of safety features.  This should make the Accord Tourer something to scare the folks over at Volvo.  Honda is expected to release more information about the car in less than three weeks.

Sales of the all new Honda Accord Tourer will begin in early summer.
