Honda Accord

Honda specialists have been working really hard these last few months trying to finish the developing process of the 2013 Accord, both in coupe and sedan versions, before the launching data arrives, this fall. Its complex exterior design will keep it popular for a long time. At the front it has a new grille that has slimmer headlights. The engineers offered additional chrome trim to improve the sedan. Even though Honda did not reveal any pictures with the interior of the new model, we do know it has the new HondaLink infotainment system. The interior packaging allows for increased passenger and cargo space in both the sedan and the coupe.

In terms of power, the 2013 Honda Accord will be available with a 2.4-liter Earth Dreams 4-cylinder engine capable of developing 181 horsepower and 240 Nm of torque and it will also be offered with a 3.5-liter V6 unit, capable of producing 310 horsepower and 359 Nm of torque. This is not all. The carmaker is also offering a plug-in hybrid variant which receives power from a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine, from an electric motor capable of developing 161 horsepower and from a 6 kWh lithium-ion battery. All the output will be then transferred to the wheels through an electric continuously variable transmission. Actually this will empower the 2013 Honda Accord to travel on electricity alone around 10 to 15 miles at speeds up to 62 mph. When the battery is empty, it can be fully recharge using a 120V outlet in less than four hours. The other possibility is to use a 240V outlet which will fully recharge the battery in less than 1.5 hours. More information will be revealed in the fall.
