The newly redesigned 2013 Honda Accord is now offered in five trim levels with two available engines, two transmissions and two body styles. Choosing the right one can be difficult -- especially if you're not exactly sure which one offers the features you want. We've made it easy by listing all the major features included with each model so you can compare trim levels and pick the one that's best for your budget and your needs.

Honda Accord LX: Sedan or Coupe

The base-level Accord sedan, called the LX, starts at $22,470 with shipping, while the two-door coupe model, called the LX-S, starts at $24,140. Both use a 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. A fuel-saving CVT automatic is optional.

The sedan includes standard 16-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera and an 8-in, center-mounted touchscreen. It boasts steering wheel-mounted audio controls, a USB audio interface and Honda's EcoAssist fuel economy coaching tool.

The LX-S coupe adds 17-in alloy wheels and a tilt and telescoping steering wheel. It includes Honda's Active Noise Cancellation system and Active Sound Control, both of which make for a quieter cabin. Finally, CVT-equipped Accord coupes feature a sport mode with steering wheel shift paddles.

Honda Accord Sport: Sedan only

The sedan-only Accord Sport starts at $24,180 with shipping. It adds five new items to the Accord LX: a rear spoiler, 18-in alloy wheels, fog lights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a 10-way power driver's seat. It comes standard with a 6-speed manual, while CVT-equipped automatic models offer a sport mode with steering wheel shift paddles.

Honda Accord EX: Sedan or Coupe

The Accord EX is available as a sedan or coupe. For sedan models, its features add to the Accord LX rather than the Accord Sport. The EX coupe, meanwhile, builds on the base-level LX-S coupe. Pricing for the Accord EX sedan starts at $25,395, while the coupe starts at $25,815.

Accord EX sedan models offer 17-in alloy wheels, a power sunroof and Honda's Smart Entry system with push-button start. The sedan also offers Honda's Lane Watch system, which assists drivers when making lane changes.

The Accord EX coupe includes a power sunroof and Honda's Smart Entry system with push-button start. In addition, it adds fog lights, a multi-angle rearview camera and an audio touchscreen featuring HondaLink with Aha compatibility.

Both the EX-L sedan and coupe are available with Honda's satellite-linked navigation system for an extra $2,000. In addition to navigation functionality, the sedan includes a 16-GB hard drive, voice recognition and FM traffic.

Honda Accord EX-L V6: Sedan or Coupe

The top-level Accord coupe is the EX-L V6, which starts at $31,140 with shipping. Sedan models start at $30,860. As the name suggests, EX-L V6 models offer a 6-cylinder engine. The 3.5-liter powerplant produces 278 hp and comes standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

EX-L V6 coupe models add 18-in alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights and a HomeLink system for garage door opening ease. The sedan adds only LEDs and HomeLink, retaining the 17-in alloys from the 4-cylinder EX-L model. Both models offer navigation for an extra $2,000.
