Honda Accord Type S revealed

The hot Honda Accord Type S will be launched at next month's Geneva motor show.

It's powered by a 180bhp 2.2-litre diesel engine, with turbo, cylinder head and intercooler upgrades providing 30bhp more than the standard unit.

It also has 280lb ft of pulling power, up from 221lb ft on the standard unit.

Other modifications include 18-inch alloy wheels, clear indicator glass and a choice of two colour schemes: white or red.

It will be available as a saloon or estate.

Prices will be announced ahead of the car's on-sale date this summer.
