One of the most exciting updates to the 2013 sedan model Accord is the upgrade in technology. With even base models featuring an LCD center touchscreen console, Honda has sent a clear message that infotainment and luxury-level convenience is something for everyone. HondaLink featuring Aha restaurant finder will give drivers access to cloud-based storage and a myriad of Internet functions, including streaming Pandora radio, voice-recognition SMS messaging, and Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices.
Honda has improved the Accord not just in terms of convenience, but safety as well — the innovative Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW) systems give drivers the ability to stay better in tune with their surroundings by providing alerts. The new Accord also works to integrate Honda’s next generation of advanced compatibility engineering (ACE) chassis and body structure, designed especially to keep the cabin safe in the event of a collision.
Honda has worked hard to ensure that there will be a 2013 Accord that’s a perfect fit for every kind of car buyer, as it is set to come in up to eight different trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L with Navigation, EX-L V6, and Touring. Consumers will have a choice of a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine or a 3.5L V6 engine with i-VTEC transmission technology.
Even more exciting is the news that a plug-in hybrid model of the Accord is set to be released in the near future, though information on when exactly it will arrive in showrooms is not yet available.
