Ninth-generation Accord offers a lot of new technologies
Honda recently announced the reveal of its all-new 2013 Accord Sedan and Coupe. Completely redesigned for 2013, the all-new Honda Accord provides a host of powertrain, engineering, electronic and safety firsts.
Being 76mm shorter in overall length, Honda considers the 2013 Accord as 'better, not bigger' as it now has 25mm more legroom and 30 liter more cargo space capacity. The ninth-generation Honda Accord lineup comes in either a sedan or coupe model and comes in a 4-cylinder, a V6, or a hybrid powertrain mated to a six-speed manual, six-speed automatic, or CVT gearbox.
New features for Accord include a MacPherson strut front suspension, a steel and aluminum front subframe and electric power steering (EPS). Standard Active Noise Control (ANC) and Active Sound Control (ASC) on both 4-cylinder and V-6 models counteract engine noise, particularly at high rpm.
A completely new interior with an impressive range of available technologies are made available for the Accord. Standard features include redesigned seating, dual-zone automatic climate control and simplified controls and instrumentation.
The all-new 2013 Honda Accord sedan will go on sale in the US this month, followed by the Coupe version on October, while the plug-in hybrid sedan is scheduled to debut early next year.
