The ninth-generation Accord is a stunning combination of style and sophistication. Not only do the Accord Sedan and Coupe sport dynamic new exterior and interior designs, but they also show off a host of new technologies.
The Accord delivers a spacious and luxurious passenger cabin wrapped in an upscale, sophisticated body style that will stand the test of time. Beyond the beautiful exterior, it was truly designed around the needs of the driver and all passengers. Designed with a focus on customer needs, smart interior packaging allows for increased passenger and cargo space in both the Sedan and the Coupe, while the overall exterior lengths are noticeably shortened, contributing to a sportier driving character and easier parking. An expansive greenhouse and generous rear seating area provide excellent levels of visibility and comfort for the driver and all passengers.
The 2013 Accord will debut ingenious new available features, such as Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and the Honda-exclusive LaneWatch™ blind spot display. The new Accord also introduces HondaLink™, a cloud-based system that connects you to Bluetooth® Streaming Audio, Pandora® internet radio SMS text message function and all your favorite digital content without hassling with your mobile phone. The available Aha™ feature on HondaLink gives you access to personalized restaurant searches, Facebook audio feeds, audiobooks and more via the audio system interface and voice recognition.
The Accord has been one of the best-selling cars in America since its introduction 36 years ago.

New Accord Technology
-Honda's first use of direct injection (DI) in North America contributes to the 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine's excellent fuel efficiency and low emissions.
-A new Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), available with the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, contributes to the
-Accord's improved fuel efficiency. Honda's unique G-Design Shift logic creates a connected feel and provides amore immediate acceleration response than conventional automatics or other CVT designs.
-New MacPherson-strut front suspension improves ride and handling qualities, while also reducing interior noise,
-Vibration and harshness (NVH). The new lighter aluminum and steel front subframe also uses a proprietary Honda friction-stir welding process.
-Three features highly coveted by consumers are now standard on every new Accord: Bluetooth®HandsFreeLink®, USB/iPod® integration and rearview camera. No other manufacturer provides this level of standard equipment. Honda's Expanded View Driver's Mirror is also now standard equipment on every Accord.
-All Accord models feature standard Econ button with Eco Assist.TM
-As in previous generations, two gasoline engines are available on the 2013 Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe. These include a new Earth Dreams.TM 2.4-liter 4-cylinder with Honda's first use of direct injection in North America, and an
-Earth Dreams.TM 3.5-liter V-6 with revised VTEC + VCM functions. The base 185-horsepower (hp) 4-cylinder engine is coupled to a choice of an efficient new continuously variable transmission (CVT), or a new fun-to-shift 6-speed manual
transmission on selected models. The Accord Sport Sedan model provides a 189-horsepower version of the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder. Meanwhile, Accord V-6 models feature a 278-horsepower 3.5-liter engine coupled to a 6-speed automatic or, in the V-6 Coupe, a 6-speed manual transmission.
-In early 2013, the 2014 Accord Plug-In Hybrid will debut Honda's new 2.0-liter 4-cylinder two-motor plug-in hybrid system. Available in the Sedan only, this system operates continuously through three modes--all-electric, gasoline electric and direct-drive--to maximize fuel efficiency.
Crisply styled and aerodynamically efficient, the 2013 Accord Sedan and Coupe body designs are the most sophisticated in Accord history. The 2013 Accord unit-body uses 55.8-percent high-tensile steel, more than in any previous Accord. In addition, 17.2-percent of the steel is now grade 780, 980 and 1,500--extremely high grades that have never before been used in any Accord. This contributes to higher body rigidity and reduced weight, which directly benefits ride and handling,interior quietness, performance and efficiency and long-term durability.
With its contoured body-sides, the Sedan's exterior design is sleek, bold and decisive, while the Coupe's design is rakish,taut and athletic. Extensive use of under-covers improve aerodynamics for increased fuel efficiency, while other advances include available LED headlights, DRLs and brake lights, mirror-mounted turn signals, and the standard Expanded View Driver's Mirror that increases the driver's field of vision by 4.2 degrees.
A completely new interior provides a level of luxury and craftsmanship never before seen in the Accord. Available in Black, Gray and Ivory cloth or leather, the interior combines welcoming comfort with an impressive range of available technologies. Standard features include redesigned seating, dual-zone automatic climate control and simplified controls and instrumentation.
Compared to the prior edition, both the 2013 Accord Sedan and Coupe offer spacious accommodations for five passengers, and a roomy trunk with a flatter load floor for greater utility. Although the Accord's length has decreased over three inches and the wheelbase is almost an inch shorter, key interior dimensions grow. Rear legroom increases over an inch, both front and rear shoulder room increase, and trunk space is up over a cubic foot. Altogether, the interior is remarkably quiet, stylish and upscale, with high-quality materials, exemplary fit and finish, and advanced seating comfort and ergonomics.
The 2013 Accord Sedan and Coupe offer the greatest range of active and passive safety features in Honda history.Vehicle Stability Assist.TM (VSA®) is standard on all Accord models, and available new technologies include Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). Collision safety engineering includes the updated Advanced Compatibility Engineering.TM (ACE.TM) body structure, which improves occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions, and the most extensive use of high-strength steel in Accord history. The Accord's impact-absorbing front body design can even help attenuate energy in the event of a frontal collision with a pedestrian.
Passive-safety features include six airbags, including dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, front side airbags, and side curtain airbags. New SmartVent.TM side airbags reduce the risk of excessive airbag deployment force and eliminate the need for the Accord's previous Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS). Based on internal testing, both the 2013 Accord Sedan and Coupe are expected to earn a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) and 5-star ratings in federal National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) crash tests.3.
