2013 Honda Accord: It’s the Little Things

There are many reasons to like the 2013 Honda Accord. We’ve detailed most of them over the past few months. One of the Accord’s best traits is value. 

As equipped, our Accord EX with leather and nav is about $33,000. There is a more luxurious and more expensive version of the Accord: the Touring model. The Touring includes a more powerful V6 engine, LED lights up front, adaptive cruise control and a few other features that give it a more upscale look and feel. 

But even on the less expensive models, Honda really gets the details that make a car appealing. For example, the base Accord LX gets attractive alloy wheels. That means you won’t find any Honda Accord, 2013 or newer, with those tacky plastic wheel covers that so easily get scratched up and sometimes just fall off. 

Also, while the Touring version of the Accord gets cool-looking LEDs up front, the popular Accord EX does not. Still, Honda gave the EX’s headlights a bit of a faux LED treatment. It’s one of those little things that will make you feel like the Accord you choose is something to be proud of. 

The same is true of those alloy wheels on the LX or the chrome exhaust tip and rear spoiler on the Sport model. Honda has done a great job of making every version of the Accord appealing in its own way. 

That means shoppers don’t have to worry about spending too much money to get a car they really like. If you’re on a budget and can’t justify the price of the Accord EX with leather, we totally get it. However, even if your budget has you in the sub $30,000 range, the 2013 Honda Accord is still worthwhile no matter which version you pick.
