I'm sure I read in one of those auto-rag magazines some months ago the accord was being dropped in the UK if not the whole of Europe due to poor sales.

Correct. In the UK they're only selling about 2500/yr. I've seen it suggested that Honda may sell the US version in Europe but it's a different car.

The current car is imported from Japan so Honda are taking a big hit due to exchange rates but there's no way the volume makes sense to build it in the UK.

What do mean by not coming to the UK? According to various reports, there isn't going to be a 9th generation Accord at all.

Apparently so. The 8th gen car is built on different platforms for the US and for Asia/Europe. In Australia Honda sells both - Accord and Accord Euro (have a look on the Honda Australia website).

Info suggests that there won't be a Euro gen 9 but it unclear whether the US version will be offered here.

Why do you think that? They're only selling 2500/yr now, and the demand for large saloons is dropping all the time.

HML shows alarming sales drops for both Accord and Avensis (although Avensis sells in much bigger numbers)
