New For 2013
The Accord is all-new for 2013. A plug-in hybrid with a projected 100 mpg will be available in spring 2013.
Just when we thought the mid-size melee would end, major players started updating or overhauling their sedans for optimal kid hauling, grocery getting, commuting power, and efficiency. Honda’s 2013 Accord arrives this fall ready to duke it out with the best. It now offers eco-minded sedan owners up to 36 mpg with a new continuously variable transmission (six-speed manual and automatic transmissions are also available), and eco-warriors will appreciate the plug-in hybrid that arrives in spring 2013 with more than 100 mpge (miles per gallon equivalent). Sporty-Accord fans won’t be disappointed, either. The 3.5-liter V-6 returns with 278 hp and an available six-speed manual in the Accord coupe. In all, the Accord has four styles: coupe, plug-in hybrid, sedan, and sport sedan (with a slightly more powerful 2.4-liter in-line four). All ride atop a different suspension setup that Honda promises will curb noise, vibration, and harshness while keeping the Accord’s signature road feel. Inside, Honda has added HondaLink, a Harmon-developed system that uses voice activation for infotainment features and integrates with a smart phone for more connectivity. Whether or not the new model will be a hit remains to be seen. Then again, the Accord’s unimpeachable reputation as efficient, capable, and reliable precedes it.
