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."
Honda’s all-new Accord Sedan and Accord Coupe signal the beginning of the 9th generation of its best-selling midsize car. The 2013 Accord models are more sophisticated, more luxurious, better equipped, and better performing compared to any other model in Accord's 37-year history. Moreover, the 2013 Accord boasts the highest levels of craftsmanship, vehicle dynamics, range of standard equipment, and sense of luxury. New Accord models, built in two facilities in Ohio, will be launched in celebration of Accord’s 30 years of production in the U.S.
In addition, the exterior length and the wheelbase of the Accord Sedan and Accord Coupe are a bit more compact compared to the previous generation Accord. Yet despite being more compact, the new Accord models still offer improved interior dimensions, including trunk volume and rear legroom. The end result is a spacious new Accord with sportier appearance, better driving dynamics, and more responsive handling.
Nothing was left out when the Honda Accord was redesigned, from the tip of its front bumpers to the exhaust finishers’ end. This also includes major elements such as the unit-body, glass, sheet metal, and aerodynamics, as well as the interior features, the electronic systems, the chassis components, the many safety systems, and the engines and transmissions. But despite these complete generational changes, the new Accord Sedan and Accord Coupe are still focused on offering the long-established combination of Honda’s unbeatable safety and security, fun-to-drive performance and handling, passenger comfort, convenience, and value for money.
