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.
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 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.

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Honda Accord is one of the world's most
popular family sedans. It is also one of honda's best selling cars. With
decades of sales success, the Honda Accord has long history of hauling
families around America and thus cast a long shadow. Is the brand new 2013
Honda Accord up to the task of carrying on that tradition is a great
question to ask when reviewing the new 2013 model. That is question we will

2013 Honda Accord Sport 0-60 MPH Drive & Review

engine. It can also be had with a 6-speed manual transmission or a new CVT.
In this review we test and review the 4 cylinder manual model to see how
this family Honda has improved. What TFLcar review would be complete

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

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.

2013 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, & Test Drive
Honda proves it can still build a class-leading vehicle with the release of
their all-new 9th generation Accord. With its dizzying array of new tech
features, generous standard equipment list, and improved fuel efficiency,
it quickly puts the Accord back to the top 3 of the midsize family sedan
class. Our few gripes remain with its lingering ever-conservative styling
and a top trim touring model that looks too similar to an EX trim.
