ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

  • The styling is refined without straying from the established Accord look.
  • Increased passenger space is packaged in shorter overall length.
  • All three power train choices are new, including a plug-in hybrid.

Honda has revealed the latest Accord coupe and sedan--a completely redesigned, ninth-generation version of the popular midsize model. Exterior styling is refined but remains consistent with the established Accord look. Underneath, three new engine choices offer a range of economy and performance.

The 2013 Honda Accord Coupe looks nearly identical to the coupe concept that graced the Honda stand at January's Detroit Auto Show. Both the new sedan and coupe feature a prominent and sharp character line that runs along the body side, just below the belt line. Wider taillights on the sedan, reminiscent of the Hyundai Genesis, flank a chrome accent, lending a more upscale look. Still, the look is consistent enough with past Accord models that it remains unmistakably identifiable as the popular midsize Honda.

Honda paid special attention to give the new Accord a slippery exterior shape to improve aerodynamics and promote good fuel economy. Both the windshield and windshield wipers are mounted as flush as possible to allow air to move easily over the vehicle. Meanwhile, underbody panels help air to flow efficiently below.

While exact dimensions have not yet been announced, Honda says the new Accord is slightly shorter in overall length than the outgoing model. Still, the automaker says that clever interior design means more passenger and cargo space in the 2013 model. Vicky Poponi, American Honda's assistant vice president of product planning, says such efficient packaging fits with Honda's design philosophy.

"This car is the most sculpted and the most dynamic Accord yet," Poponi said. "Following Honda's long-held philosophy of 'man maximum, machine minimum,' the beautiful exterior evolved from a focus on interior space and the needs of the people inside it."

A range of three drivetrains, all new, power the 2013 Accord, offering a wide balance of performance and economy. The new base motor is Honda's first direct-injection engine, a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder. Honda re-engineered the optional V6 for improved horsepower and torque. The automaker will offer it with either an automatic or manual transmission, both 6-speed units. Finally, the new Accord Plug-in Hybrid will arrive this winter and will travel 10 to 15 miles on electricity alone.

Whether in coupe or sedan form, the 2013 Accord continues to offer style and quality in a package aimed at passenger comfort. The 2013 model builds on the formula without straying too far from the proven success of its predecessors.

What it means to you: The all-new ninth-generation 2013 Honda Accord arrives in dealer showrooms this fall with updated styling, more passenger space and three new engine choices.
