2013 Honda Accord

2013 Honda Accord details revealed by Honda

The car that defines the segment is newly restyled and has updates to every major system.

The press release by Honda for the all-new 2013 Accord begins “Better, not bigger.” Halleluiah. The Accord has grown from a small compact car during its introduction to a car just a little small for its aspirations, then was absolutely the right size, and sadly was grown to be just a little portly and too large. Very American that, but not in a good way. Frankly, it would be easy to stop here and just say “it is fixed”, but Honda has made noteworthy changes that it feels will make the Accord a leader again in the segment.

The 2013 Accord Release Schedule
The Accord will roll out in stages. The ones that will sell well are coming first. Those are the conventionally powered four and six (yes six) cylinder models. We will key in on those here in this story and leave the rest for later when they are released. Suffice it to say a plug in and also a more standard hybrid will join the lineup. In exactly two weeks, on September 19th, the sedan will arrive and then in October, the coupe.
