The all-new Accord adds thousands of dollars worth of standard features and
technologies with average pricing across the sedan lineup increasing by less
than $300. The price of the most popular Accord LX (4-cylinder) trim is up by
only $200.


The 2013 Honda Accord has been fully redesigned from the ground up to deliver
new levels of refinement, sophistication, fuel efficiency and fun-to-drive
performance in the midsize segment. Every new Accord is equipped with alloy
wheels, and standard features now also include a rearview camera, an Expanded
View Driver’s Mirror, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®,
USB/iPod® integration, Pandora® internet radio
compatibility, SMS text message function, dual-zone automatic climate control,
and a 160-watt AM/FM/CD audio system.


“The 2013 Accord excels in all areas with sophisticated design, a luxurious
interior, world-class dynamic performance, class-leading standard features and
legendary Honda quality, all at a tremendous value for the customer,” said John
Mendel, executive vice president of sales, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “2012
is the year of the midsize sedan, and the new Accord will once again solidify
Honda’s position at the head of the pack.”


New to the Accord Sedan lineup for 2013 are the Sport and Touring models. The
Accord Sport targets younger buyers with the addition of 18-inch alloy wheels,
fog lights,10-way power driver’s seats, a decklid spoiler, dual chrome exhaust
finishers, paddle shifters (on CVT models), a stiffer tower strut bar and
exclusive suspension and steering tuning. Positioned between the Accord LX and
Accord EX, the Sport model is equipped with the 2.4-liter direct-injected
all-aluminum VTEC® engine paired to either a 6-speed manual or
Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The Sport model is value priced with a
manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $23,390 plus a destination and
handling charge1.


The luxurious and technology-packed Accord Touring is equipped with a
powerful V-6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. Equipped with Honda’s
first application of LED headlights and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), the
Accord Touring sedan is priced with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price
(MSRP) of $33,430 plus a destination and handling charge1.


The 2013 Accord lineup is powered by a wide array of new Earth Dreams™
powertrains, which includes the first U.S. application of Honda’s
next-generation 2.4-liter direct-injected VTEC 4-cylinder engine. The 2013
Accord Sedan and Coupe will also offer a more powerful and efficient Earth
Dreams VTEC V-6. Three transmissions are available, including the first-ever
application of a continuously variable transmission (CVT) on 2.4-liter
4-cylinder models, a six-speed automatic on V-6 models, and 6-speed manual
transmissions on 2.4-liter 4-cylinder models and the 3.5-liter V-6 Coupe.


The 2013 Accord successfully balances fun-to-drive performance with fuel
efficiency. Accord Sedan 4-cylinder models paired to the CVT earn an impressive
27/36/30 mpg2 city/highway/combined EPA fuel economy ratings (an
increase of 3/2/3 mpg compared to the previous model) and the V-6 models achieve
class-leading EPA fuel economy ratings of 21/34/25 city/highway/combined
mpg2 (an increase of 1/4/1 compared to the previous model) making it
the most fuel-efficient gasoline-powered vehicle in the V-6 midsize sedan class.


Other new Accord technologies include the first application of the all-new
cloud-based HondaLink™ system featuring Aha™, which lets drivers put away their
smartphones and still stay connected to the people, music and social media they
love. Also debuting on the 2013 Accord is Honda LaneWatch™ blind-spot display,
which uses a camera integrated with the passenger-side mirror and the vehicle’s
8-inch color display to provide for an enhanced view of the passenger-side
roadway. LaneWatch is standard equipment on EX and above versions of the Sedan,
and EX-L versions of the Coupe.


Celebrating 30 years of Accord production in the United States, the all-new
2013 Honda represents the expanding capabilities of Honda in North America. The
Accord is producedby Honda of America Mfg. Inc. in Marysville, Ohio,
using domestic and globally sourced parts. Its engines are produced at Honda
plants in Anna, Ohio and the transmissions are produced at Russells Point, Ohio,
and in Tallapoosa, Georgia. The Marysville Auto Plant earned a Silver Plant
Quality Award from J.D. Power and Associates in its 2012 Initial Quality
Study.

Warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, and a
