Honda is consolidating its position on the US market with the ninth generation of the Accord. Unveiled today in a full and complete press release, the new Accord, derived also in coupe version, is more luxurious, more sophisticated, better performing and better equipped than any other model in the Accord's 37 year history.
 
Crisply styled and aerodynamically efficient, the all new 2013 Accord Sedan and Accord Coupe body design and engineering are the most sophisticated in the entire model's history.
 
The medium sedan and coupe will be offered with only two engines for the moment. First, we are talking about an all-new 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine with Honda's first use of direct injection in North America. Second is the highly acclaimed 3.5 liter V6 with revised VTEC and VCM functions.
 
In early 2013, the Accord lineup will see the first application of a new 2.0-liter 4-cylinder/two-motor plug-in hybrid system in the Honda Accord PHEV Sedan. The Honda two-motor hybrid system will operate continuously through three modes: all-electric, gasoline-electric and direct-drive.
 
Accord 4 cylinder models will offer a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that helps the 4 door achieve outstanding fuel-efficiency, along with a new fun-to-shift 6 speed manual transmission on selected models. The Accord's V6 engine offers a choice of a new 6 speed automatic or in the V6 Coupe, a 6-speed manual. The Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid will feature a new electric coupled CVT. 
 
Standard features on the new Accord include Bluetooth HandsFreeLink with audio streaming, USB/iPod integration, rearview camera and an audio/information screen and an Eco Assist driving system. As in previous EX-trim Accords, a choice of fabric or leather seating upholstery is available.
 
Other standard Accord features include dual-zone climate control, Pandora internet radio integration and an SMS text messaging function. Available features include a hard-disc drive (HDD) based Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and FM Traffic, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
 
New visibility technologies include an expanded-view driver's mirror and Honda's new LaneWatch feature, along with available features such as LED headlights, daytime running lights (DRL) and brake lights.
 
Safety advancements include a thoroughly revised Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure and available Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems.
