Completely redesigned for the new model year, the 2013 Honda Accord has received extensive enhancements to just about everything—except its price. The all-new Accord will be stickered from $21,680 when it goes on sale at dealers like Used Honda Colorado Springs on September 19, representing a price bump of just $200 over the 2012 version.
It’s a high-value MSRP that delivers a high-efficiency Honda capable of 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway/30 mpg combined, along with standard features like:
- Alloy wheels
- Rearview camera
- Expanded-view driver’s mirror
- Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
- USB/iPod integration
- Pandora Internet radio compatibility
- SMS text-messaging functionality
- Dual-zone climate control
- 160 watts worth of audio enjoyment
That’s the entry package with the Accord’s new “Earth Dreams” 2.4-liter I4 engine, but the sedan also is available with that same green technology upgrading its 3.5-liter V6—the most powerful V6 ever offered in the car—at a sticker of $30,070 at dealers like Arrowhead Honda. Here, drivers will enjoy 278 hp, 252 lb.-ft. of torque and the best EPA marks of any V6-powered mid-size sedan: Up to 21 mpg city/34 mpg highway/25 mpg combined.
According to Bay Area Honda Dealer, the 2013 Honda Accord sedan also will launch with two fresh models as part of its lineup (and that’s in addition to both hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants coming early next year). The Accord Sport has been configured for younger drivers and delivers bigger, 18-inch wheels, fog lights, a decklid spoiler, dual-chrome exhaust finishers, enthusiast-tuned suspension and steering, and, on models with a CVT, paddle shifters. The spunky Sport model opens at $23,390 with a six-speed manual or $24,190 with the CVT.
Then there’s the elegant 2013 Accord Touring, now the range-topping member of the lineup, which brings high-tech goodies like LED lighting, adaptive cruise control, satellite-linked navigation, Honda’s blind-spot warning system, forward-collision alert and a V6 engine, all starting at $33,430 at Ontario Largest Honda Dealer.
“The 2013 Accord excels in all areas with sophisticated design, a luxurious interior, world-class dynamic performance, class-leading standard features and legendary Honda quality, all at a tremendous value for the customer,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales, American Honda Motor Co. Inc., “2012 is the year of the midsize sedan, and the new Accord will once again solidify Honda’s position at the head of the pack.”
