This vehicle paper model is a 1985 third generation Honda Accord AeroDeck paper car, created by Sakyo Studio. The third-generation Accord was sold in Japan and Europe as a three-door hatchback with a flat roof over the rear seats, known in Europe as a shooting-brake. It was offered only in Japan and Europe. The bodystyle of a flat roof hatchback was also used on the third generation Honda Civic subcompact, the second generation Honda City supermini and the first generation Honda Today kei car. The Honda CR-X was the only three-door hatchback that adopted a fastback, sloping rear hatch, demonstrating a performance car appearance identified with Honda Verno products during the mid-1980s. There are 1976 First Generation Honda Accord Hatchback, 1977 First Generation Honda Accord Saloon and 1989 Honda Accord Sedan Paper Car at the site.
In North America, the Accord Coupe was offered instead, and the popularity of the coupe showed to win out over the AeroDeck, and upon the coupe's introduction in Japan and Europe in 1988, the AeroDeck was cancelled due to lack of sales at the end of the generation's production. The "Aerodeck" name was reused on the Honda Civic 5-door stationwagon, sold in the UK from 1996 to 2000. In parts of Continental Europe, the Honda Accord 4-door station wagon was also called the Accord Aerodeck from 1990 until 2008, when the name of the estate was renamed the "Accord Tourer". Here's a Japanese television commercial for the Aero Deck The AeroDeck was only available in Japan at Honda Clio dealerships as a variation of the Honda Accord.
The cargo handling abilities of the AeroDeck were ceded to the fourth generation Accord station wagon in 1990. The AeroDeck was unique to the Accord model line, as the AeroDeck was not available as a Honda Vigor, as the Accord and Vigor were mechanically identical. The AeroDeck returned an aerodynamic value of .34, and the 2600 mm wheelbase returned a spacious interior for both front and rear passengers, on par with a mid-size sedan. Unfortunately, the appearance was not well received in Japan, as the introduction of the Accord Coupe was more well liked. The appearance was more popular in the United Kingdom.
The Aerodeck was equipped with a four-wheel double wishbone suspension, which gave both a comfortable ride and cornering performance. In addition, speed-sensitive power steering is included, which gives the car easy turning assistance at speeds below 40 kilometres per hour (25 mph) during operation, such as parallel parking. Note that the top model in Japan "2.0Si" is to 4w-ALB (4-wheel ABS ) are standard equipment.
"2.0Si" to the type B20A DOHC 16-valve 2.0L PGM-FI 160PS (145PS net output) engines are equipped with, shared with the Honda Prelude, and Honda Vigor. At that time adopted an aluminum block still rare, despite the light weight engine DOHC, in those days was the world's commercial vehicle output per engine weight. In addition, DOHC 16-valve 1.8L B18A-type CV Dual Carburetor 130ps, type A18A SOHC twelve valves 1.8L Single Carburetor 110PS, SOHC 12-valve 2.0L PGM type for the European market and A20A4-FI · 130PS, A20A2 2.0L SOHC 12-valve engine had a single Carburetor type 105PS.
Visibility from the driver's seat and passenger seat was better due to the lower instrument panel design of the front window and a large windshield. And switches are arranged efficiently and at the time was the driving position can be fine-tuned adjustments.
Because of the shape of the vehicle and the flat roof that continued to the rear of the vehicle, opening the rear hatch had some drawbacks in low clearance environments. The lower part of the hatch was not like one used on a station wagon that went all the way down to the rear bumper, so loading cargo into the back wasn't as convenient as a conventional station wagon with a one piece hatchback. The rear hatch also wrapped into the rear roof, similar to a gull wing door so that the rear glass was in two pieces, one for the back window, and another partially on the rear roof. When open, the hatch rose above the roof at a right angle, providing additional overhead clearance when the hatch was open.
Moreover, because of the emphasis on aiding rear-seat passenger entry, a longer front door was installed, and because power windows were not installed on the lower trim packages "LX", "LX-S" and as such, the window regulator opening felt heavy. [Source: wiki]
