Article by Christian A., on July 16, 2013

The 2013 Honda Accord Coupe V6 has just received a limited edition Honda Factory Performance (HFP) package and it will go on sale today at select dealers in the United States. This new vehicle was first shown back in 2012 at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas and was recently performance tested by Honda’s North American racing company, Honda Performance Development, Inc. (HPD).

According to Honda, the HFP package consists of 19-inch HFP alloy-wheels, a new HFP sport suspension which lowers the height of the car by 15 mm and enhances handling, a decklid spoiler, new front, side and rear underbody spoilers developed by HFP, red interior illumination, HFP floor mats and HFP badges for each side and the trunk.

Honda offers a 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty for the HFP package. Only 500 examples of the 2013 Accord Coupe V6 with the HFP package will be sold. The price of the package is $4,620 and does not include installation.

Accord has been the best-selling midsized car to come from Honda. For this ninth generation, two versions will be released which are the 2013 Accord Coupe and the 2013 Accord Sedan. Compared to other models in the 37-year history of the brand, these new versions perform better and show more luxury. It even shows more sophistication and are fitted with better equipment.

Indeed, the 2013 variants offer a new level when it comes to craftsmanship, dynamics, and luxury. The available selection of standard equipment being offered is also at the highest level for its segment. Unlike the generation of the Accord it will be replacing, both the Accord Coupe and the Accord Sedan are compact in terms of the exterior overall length and even the wheelbase.

Despite this, Honda was still able to execute some enhancements on certain dimensions on the interior like legroom in the rear and volume of the trunk. In redesigning the Accord, Honda made sure to look into everything, from the edge of the exhaust finishers and all the way to the front on the bumper’s tip. Changes include major components like aerodynamics, glass, sheet metal, and unit-body.

There are also new features on the interior, electronic systems, and various safety systems. Changes were done as well on the components of the chassis, engines, and transmissions.

All of the different modifications resulted in the Accord showcasing better driving dynamics, handling that is more responsive, and a more athletic look. The new Accord models will be manufactured in two sites located in Ohio. In addition to marking the ninth generation of this range, it also signals 30 straight years of the Accord being produced in the U.S.
