Honda has released the first details on the 2013 Accord for the U.S., which will go on sale later on this month for the Sedan and in October for the Coupe.
After it was officially presented to the public in a world premiere just a few weeks ago, and with the model already being assembled over-seas, the new generation of the Honda Accord, the 2013 Coupe and the 2013 Sedan, is being placed into the spotlights once more, this time with the car manufacturer releasing more details on them.
Honda says that both the Sedan and the Coupe can get the 2.4 liter Earth Dreams four-cylinder engine, which is producing a total output of 185 HP (138 kW), mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT. The engine is shared with the Accord Sport Sedan, but in this version the unit is producing 189 HP (141 kW). A larger 3.5 liter V6 engine can also be ordered, with 278 HP (207 kW), which can be mated to a six-speed automatic in the Sedan or to a six-speed manual in the Coupe. This version is returning 36 mpg on the highway.
The 2013 Honda Accord will be offered in six versions, the LX, LX Sport, the EX, the EX-L, the EX-L V6 and the Touring, while the Coupe will hit the market in four trim levels, the LX-S, the EX, the EX-L and the EX-L V6. Nine exterior colors are available for the 2013 Honda Accord and standard features on the model include the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) and the six airbags, Hill Start Assist and Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Prices of the 2013 Accord Sedan and Coupe will be announced close to their launch.
