Better, not bigger, the completely new Honda Accord lineup includes Sedan and Coupe models powered by 4-cylinder, V-6 and hybrid powertrains, teamed to manual, automatic and continuously variable transmission (CVT) options. The 2013 Honda Accord Sedan goes on sale September 19, 2012, with the Coupe to follow on October 15, 2012. An all-new, two-motor 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) Sedan is scheduled to debut in early 2013, followed by a conventional hybrid based on the same powertrain architecture in the summer of 2013.
Using the most high-strength steel in the model's history, the 2013 Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe bodies combine sophisticated and athletic styling with remarkable aerodynamic streamlining. Revised Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structures improve frontal crash safety, making the all-new Accord one of few midsize offerings expected to excel in the upcoming small-overlap frontal barrier crash test.
All-new Earth Dreams™ powertrains include the first U.S. application of Honda's next-generation 2.4-liter direct-injected 4-cylinder engine. The 2013 Accord Sedan and Coupe will also offer a more powerful and efficient V-6, and in early 2013, an all-new two-motor 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) Sedan will debut. Four transmissions are available, including the first-ever application of a continuously variable transmission (CVT) on 2.4-liter 4-cylinder models, a six-speed automatic on V-6 models, and unique 6-speed manual transmissions on 2.4-liter 4-cylinder models and the 3.5-liter V-6 Coupe. Fuel efficiency is the best ever for an Accord in the EPA Midsize class, with 4-cylinder models earning up to an EPA 36 mpg highway rating1 and V-6 models getting up to an EPA 34 mpg highway rating.1
Other new Accord technologies include the first application of the all-new cloud-based HondaLink™ system, which lets drivers put away their smartphones and still stay connected to the people, music and social media they love. Also debuting on the 2013 Accord is the exclusive available Honda LaneWatch™ blind-spot display, which uses a camera system mounted on the passenger mirror for an enhanced view of the passenger-side roadway. The all-new 2013 Honda Accord also receives a rearview camera and an Expanded View Driver's Mirror as standard equipment.
► Renault Clio 4 on the Road
Since the launch of the original model in 1990, some 11.5 million Clios
have been sold in more than 115 countries. Today, a new chapter in Clio's
history is about to be written with the unveiling of the fourth-generation
New Energy TCe 90 petrol engine
New Clio is the first Renault model to feature the new three-cylinder
petrol turbocharged Energy TCe 90
engine. This is the first three-cylinder powerplant ever produced by
Renault and, from launch, will provide a remarkable balance between driving
pleasure and fuel economy:
- This three-cylinder, turbocharged
900cc unit comes with Stop&Start and delivers the performance of a
normally-aspirated 1.4-litre powerplant,
- Peak power of 90hp at 5,000rpm,
- An ultralow-inertia turbo for
satisfying response from low engine speeds: 135Nm at 2,500rpm (90 percent
of peak torque available from 1,650rpm),
- An economy-optimised version with taller gear ratios and fuel consumption
of 4.3 litres/100km, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 99g/km ,
- A 21 percent fuel consumption and CO2 emissions savingc compared to the
TCe 100 it replaces.
New diesel Energy dCi 90
The latest addition to the Energy family is a new 90hp version of the 1.5
dCi, equipped with Stop&Start:
- A four-cylinder 1.5-litre engine with 220Nm of torque available from
1,750rpm, an increase of 20Nm over the current dCi 90,
- Peak power of 90hp at 4,000rpm,
- An economy-optimised version with taller gear ratios which also qualifies
for the Renault eco2 signature with fuel consumption of just 3.2
litres/100km, equivalent to CO2 emissions 83g/kmc.
New TCe 120, paired with six-speed EDC automatic transmission
New Clio will be available with the new, dynamic TCe 120 engine mated to
six-speed EDC transmission (Efficient Dual Clutch), a first for Renault in
the B segment:
- A four-cylinder 1.2-litre engine with the performance of a
normally-aspirated 1.6 engine,
- Direct fuel injection and turbocharging for peak power of 120hp and 190Nm of
torque from 1,750rpm.
This engine is currently in the process of being homologated and will
become available in the first half of 2013. It will be among the most
powerful, yet most economical engines in its class.
Along with the availability of EDC dual clutch transmission for the dCi 90
engine in the first half of 2013, New Clio will mark a further step in
expanding access to the driving pleasure and seamless gearshifts delivered
by this responsive and frugal automatic transmission.
All-New 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid Sedan
The 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid Sedan features one of four efficient new
powertrains for the all-new Accord. The Accord Plug-in Hybrid will also
serve as the basis for a conventional hybrid version of the Accord Sedan,
which will join the Honda Accord lineup in the summer of 2013.
The 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid is powered by Honda's first two-motor hybrid
system, and uses a new Earth DreamsTM 2.0-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine
producing 137 horsepower, teamed with a
powerful 124-kilowatt (kW) electric motor. Electric driving is supported by
a 6.7 kilowatt-hour (kWh) lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery, and total system
output is 196 horsepower.
To maximize driving efficiency, the uniquely designed two-motor hybrid
system allows the Accord PHEV powertrain to move seamlessly between
all-electric EV Drive, gasoline-electric Hybrid Drive; and direct Engine
Drive. Fuel efficiency for the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid is expected
to exceed 100 MPG-e, and it's also expected to receive an Enhanced AT-PZEV
rating from the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
Beyond its function as a full-electric vehicle, owners of the 2014 Accord
PHEV will be able to choose two additional driving modes to manage battery
capacity and tailor the capabilities of the plug-in Accord to their own
commute. In its default upon start-up, the Accord PHEV acts as a pure
electric vehicle and will continue on in full-electric mode until battery
capacity necessitates the automatic switch to gas/electric hybrid
operation. At higher speeds or under high demand for acceleration, the
gasoline engine can kick in to provide additional power.
In "HV" mode, the plug-in Accord acts as a conventional hybrid, blending
motor power between gasoline and electric to maximize fuel efficiency while
maintaining the battery charge level. In "HV Charge" mode, the Accord PHEV
blends gasoline and electric power while also augmenting the battery charge
The 2014 Accord Plug-In Hybrid Sedan will feature an electric servo braking
system similar to the setup on the Honda Fit EV, which allows for
exceptionally natural brake pedal feel, while extending the range over
which the regenerative braking can take place. In addition to its efficient
powertrain, the Accord PHEV features remarkably swift charging times. The
plug-in Accord can be fully charged from a low-charge indication point in
less than three hours using a standard 120-volt household electrical
outlet, and in less than one hour using a 240-volt "Level-2" charger. The
free HondaLink™ EV smartphone application will allow owners to easily
monitor the charging state of the Accord PHEV.
Based on the Touring trim level of standard Accord Sedan, the 2014 Honda
Accord Plug-in Hybrid Sedan will feature three exterior color choices,
including two standard Accord shades (White Orchid Pearl, Crystal Black
Pearl) plus a model-exclusive Burnished Silver Metallic exterior color
choice. The Accord PHEV will also feature a weight-saving aluminum hood,
17-inch forged alloy wheels, a unique front bumper along with enhanced
underbody aerodynamic treatments.
A host of visibility technologies are standard on the 2014 Accord PHEV,
including a rearview camera, an expanded-view driver's mirror, Honda's new
LaneWatch™ blind-spot display, LED headlights, LED daytime running lights
(DRL), and LED mirror-mounted turn indicators.
The 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid Sedan will be built in Sayama, Japan.
► 2013 VW Golf 7 - Design Animation
Indeed, the latest Golf is up to 220 pounds lighter than the outgoing car,
thanks to careful focus on weight savings in all aspects of the car's
construction, from the electrical architecture through to the engines and
the body-in-white. The air conditioning unit is, for example, six pounds
lighter than the old car's; the seats have shed 15 pounds; and the
body-in-white is 51 pounds lighter. One major reason for the bodyshell's
weight loss is the extensive use of high- and ultra-high strength steels.
The share of the high-strength steels overall has gone from 66 percent in
the previous Golf to 80 percent in the new one. Of this, the share of
ultra-high-strength steel has gone from six to 28 percent.
One benefit of lowering the Golf's weight is better fuel economy: the
European-market 1.4 TSI® that uses a 140-horsepower, turbocharged, 1.4-liter engine fitted with
cylinder de-activation gets a European Cycle combined fuel consumption
figure of 49 mpg, while the base 105-horsepower TDI® Clean
Diesel engine delivers 62 mpg on the EC combined cycle.
The new Golf is 2.2 inches longer than the old car, with an overall length
of 167.5 inches. Similarly, the wheelbase has grown by 2.3 inches to 103.8
inches. Since the front wheels are now located 1.7 inches further forward,
the proportions are sportier, the crash structure is improved, and the
interior package further optimized. The new car is 0.8 inches lower and 0.5
inches wider than the old car.
The new Golf is more spacious, with a passenger compartment that is 0.6
inches longer than before, giving 0.6 inches more rear kneeroom. Shoulder
room is improved by 1.2 inches in both the back and front of the car. Cargo
capacity has also been enhanced, while the load area is more accessible.
A key feature of the interior is a new infotainment system, which
incorporates a five-inch touchscreen, even on entry-level European models.
At the top end, the Golf features a navigation system which has a large,

2013 Honda Accord Sport: CVT vs 6 Speed Manual 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Honda Accord Sport with the 189 HP 2.4L
engine can be purchased with two transmission options. You can get the new
Honda Accord with a CVT automatic transmission with paddle shifters or you
can opt for the more traditional 6 speed tranny that you have to row
yourself. In another fun and informative TFLcar mile high 0-60 MPH mashup
review we test the car with the same engine but pit the CVT automatic
against the manual 6 Speed transmission. So which of these two options is
the faster way to go. You'll have
to watch this TFLcar mashup review to find out.

Fuel efficiency is also improved, with EPA estimated highway mileage
ratings up to 36 mpg for the 4-cylinder Accord and 34 mpg for the V-6
Accord Sedan. Not only does Accord advance the state of the art in its
segment, but the new Honda Accord models also introduce a host of new
technologies to Honda - while serving as the first vehicle to use Honda's
new Earth Dreams™ technology, which is dedicated to enhancing fuel
efficiency and minimizing the company's environmental footprint. In early
2013, an all-new 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) Sedan will launch,
followed by a conventional hybrid based on the same powertrain architecture
in the summer of 2013, bringing Honda levels of fun and efficiency to the
In addition to the upcoming hybrid versions of the Accord, the all-new 2013
Accord Sedan 4-door is available in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L V6 and new
Touring trim levels, while the 2-door Accord Coupe comes in LX-S, EX, EX-L
and EX-L V6 trim levels. Standard features on the new Accord include
Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® with audio streaming, USB/iPod® integration,
rearview camera and an audio/information screen and an Eco Assist™
driving system. As in previous EX-trim Accords, a choice of fabric or
leather seating upholstery is available.
Other standard Accord features include dual-zone climate control, Pandora®
internet radio integration and an SMS text messaging function. Available
features include a hard disc drive (HDD)-based Honda Satellite-Linked
Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition and FM Traffic, and Adaptive
Cruise Control. New visibility technologies include an expanded-view
driver's mirror and Honda's new LaneWatch™ feature - along with available
features such as LED headlights, daytime running lights (DRLs) and brake
Safety advancements include a thoroughly revised Advanced Compatibility
Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure and available Forward Collision
Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems.
Two Earth Dreams™ powertrains are available initially, including an
all-new 2.4-liter 4-cylinder with Honda's first use of direct injection in
North America, and a 3.5-liter V-6 with revised VTEC + VCM functions. In
early 2013, the Accord lineup will see the first application of a new Earth
Dreams™ 2.0-liter 4-cylinder/two-motor plug-in hybrid system in the Honda
Accord PHEV Sedan. The Honda two-motor hybrid system will operate
continuously through three modes - all-electric, gasoline-electric and
direct-drive - to maximize fuel efficiency. The 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid
will also serve as the basis for a conventional hybrid version of the
Accord Sedan, which will join the Accord lineup in the summer of 2013.
Accord 4-cylinder models will offer a continuously variable transmission
(CVT) that helps the Accord achieve outstanding fuel-efficiency, along with
a new fun-to-shift 6-speed manual transmission on selected models. The
Accord's V-6 engine offers a choice of a new 6-speed automatic or in the
V-6 Coupe, a 6-speed manual. The Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid will feature a
new electric coupled CVT.
