Honda has long been known as a serious kind of car company. Press events
are orderly, the Honda folks wear suits and their products are similarly
starched. While we have a new corporate nose up front with a chrome
"smiley" face and aggressive headlamps, the rest of the profile is buttoned
up and professional. The large (and low) greenhouse says "I have kids," an
image that Honda has been embracing with their latest commercials,
essentially admitting they are leaving descriptives like "sexy" and
"dramatic" to Hyundai and Ford. I have to admit I am quite torn, I love the
Fusion's sexy sheetmetal making it my first pick in terms of looks, but
oddly enough the "plain Jane" Accord is number two for me because it's
simple clean. The new Kia Optima is a very, very close third thanks its
nose job for 2014. I'm not convinced that the Camry's nose or the Sonata's
dramatic character lines will age well, let me know what you think in the
comment section. Something important to keep in mind is the Accord has
bucked the growth trend and has shrunk on the outside compared to the
previous generation making it among the smallest in this segment. Good if
you live in the city, bad if you were hoping for a Honda land yacht.
Honda's interiors have long been known for their simple functionality
rather than opulence or elegance and Honda is still singing the same tune.
Despite being an all-new model for 2013, Honda hasn't radically changed the
interior design, opting instead for incremental improvements and more
standard features. All Accords now get standard dual-zone automatic climate
control, Bluetooth phone integration, a backup cam and active noise
cancellation. Honda seems to have listened to the complaints from reviewers
and customers and took a methodical and dedicated approach to making the
Accord quieter on the road. In addition to the fancy noise cancelling
software, there's more foam, more carpet and a one-piece dash designed to
prevent squeaks later in life.
Honda's seat engineers seem to be designing seats specifically for my back
lately. The Accord and the refreshed Civic both sport supportive seats that
coddled by back and backside on long journeys. There is a caution I must
toss in however, the lumbar support in Sport, EX and LX models is fixed and
pronounced. If you need some adjustibility in your back support, you'll
need to step up to a leather model to get it. 2013 has brought a raft of
materials improvements to the Accord cabin from improved seat fabrics to
more squishy dash bits and the ever-so-popular stitched pleather.
Thankfully Honda spares potential owners the shame of faux wood trim,
instead opting for a modern brown pattern that I found attractive. The trim
and the style are not as stylized or futuristic as eh competition, but
controls are easy to locate, and consistent in their high quality feel.
What piqued my interest at the launch even was Honda's new 2.4L
direct-injection four cylinder engine. The engine and the brand-new CVT
turned my impression of the Accord on its head. The engine's 185HP still
arrived at a very-Honda high RIM of 6,500, but thanks to the
direct-injection sauce torque jumps to a [nearly] HP matching 181 lb-ft
with a strong pull from idle and a peak at a decidedly un-Honda 3,900RPM.
If you choose the 6-speed manual, this means you no longer have to rev the
nuts off the engine to get the Accord in motion. Most shoppers however will
find a Continuously Variable Transmission under their Accord's hood,
although they may not even notice. Why? This is quite possibly the world's

recorded with binaural microphones that, when played back through

2013 Honda Accord
The redesigned 2013 Honda Accord sedan gets classier styling, improved
ride quality and better fuel economy, according to Cars.com reviewer Kelsey
Mays. Despite losing some interior space, the model remains roomy, Mays
says. Still, its sporty nature has diminished a bit.
