2013 Honda Accord will receive new Sport trim

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 9, 2012

The appearance of Honda’s all-new 2013 Accord would be a lot similar to the current model but what makes it more appealing is that it will be offered with new trim packages: Sport and Touring. Amid the intense competitiveness in the mid-size family sedan segment and with rivals offering revamped versions, Honda probably realized that it will have to step up.

It’s believed that the new Accord Sport package would be directly rivaling the very popular Toyota Camry SE. The Camry SE features all types of sportier options that can’t be seen in the usual Camry, such as bigger wheels and a retuned suspension, as well as paddle shifters and a transmission that rev-matches on down-shifts.

It’s uncertain if the Accord Sport improves on its performance. So far, Honda hasn’t commented on this matter. The 2013 Accord is offered with a 6-speed manual transmission or a new continuously variable transmission for the 4-cylinder models.

With regards to the V6 model, a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission will be available. The new 2013 Accord will arrive at dealerships in September 2012.
