The Honda Torneo (Japanese language: Ja:ホンダ・トルネオ) is not related to the Ford Torneo, which was a minivan. "Torneo" is Spanish for "tournament". As Honda decided to consolidate models being offered in Japan, the Torneo replaced the Honda Ascot and Honda Rafaga. The Torneo was very similar to the JDM Honda Accord. The Torneo had more of a performance approach in comparison to the traditional Accord, utilizing a different front grille, headlights and tail lights. The Torneo was available with HID headlights, which were uncommon at the time. The Torneo was available with AWD on the "Euro R" trim level. 4 engines were available, all equipped with Honda's VTEC technology. The Torneo was a similar approach to the Honda Vigor, which had been discontinued earlier as a sportier version of the Accord. A few sport packages were available on the Torneo, such as the "Euro R", the "SiR-T", and the "SiR Euro".

As sales of the Accord proved more popular than the Torneo, the Torneo was discontinued in 2002.
