2013 Honda Accord Sedan/Coupe: first photos revealed

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 8, 2012

Honda released today the first photos with the all-new 2013 Accord Sedan and Coupe and announced that the brand new models will go on sale this fall. According to the official press release, the new Accord is the most sculpted ever and promises to deliver more space for the passengers.

As you can see from the photos, the new car features a brand new grille as well as a new strong side character line that flows through the door handles and flares upward toward the rear of the vehicle.

The rear of the vehicle shows an athletic stance. At the interior, the ninth-generation Accord comes with a smart interior packaging that increases increased passenger and cargo space in both the sedan and the coupe.

More details to be revealed later this fall. "This car is the most sculpted and the most dynamic Accord yet," said Vicki Poponi, assistant vice president of product planning for American Honda. "Following Honda's long-held philosophy of 'man maximum, machine minimum,' the beautiful exterior evolved from a focus on interior space and the needs of the people inside it."

All-New 2013 Honda Accord Will Debut with Premium and Sophisticated Exterior Styling

Honda today revealed the first images of the much anticipated all-new 2013 Honda Accord Sedan and Accord Coupe, set to go on sale this fall. The most sculpted Accord ever delivers an even more spacious and luxurious passenger cabin wrapped in an upscale, sophisticated exterior designed to stand the test of time.

The 2013 Accord's styling is expressive, sophisticated and premium. Starting in the front, a bold new grille imparts a distinctive and dynamic tension that complements the powerful look of the hood's multiple styling lines. A strong side character line flows through the door handles and flares upward toward the rear of the vehicle to further convey a sense of motion. A deep contour in the rocker panel firmly grounds its visual presence to the road and smartly turns upward to convey a sporty attitude. In the back, the inward slope where the fenders taper into the trunk and C-pillars is designed to convey a powerful, athletic stance from the rear.

True to the spirit of Honda and every Accord before it, the ninth-generation embraces a customer focus from the inside out. 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.

On the road, an overall aerodynamic shape combined with low-drag exterior surfaces including nearly flush windshield glass, flush-mounted windshield wipers and careful under-body tailoring promise enhanced fuel efficiency. Premium details like available LED daytime running lights, headlights and taillights hint at the sophisticated technology and luxury available inside.
