Honda released new details and photos for the 2013 Accord, a model which will be offered as a sedan and coupe in the States.
Power is provided by a 2.4-liter gasoline engine delivering 185 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque and linked to a CVT.
Fuel economy figures start at 27mpg (city) and 36mpg (highway). A more powerful 3.5-liter V6 unit with 278 horses and 252 lb-ft of torque is available as well.
This engine can be ordered with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission with fuel consumption figures of 21mpg (city) and 34mpg (highway).
The new Honda Accord will be offered as a Plug-in Hybrid model too, in the US starting next year. Expect the 2013 Honda Accord to hit the US dealerships on September 19, 2012.
The Japanese people from Honda released no pricing information on the new Accord. Therefore, we could expect these details to surface in the coming days.
The big question is: Will this new Accord make the Top 10 lists again? Compare to best seller Camry, Optima, new Mazda 6, new Fusion, comparison winner Passat and others.
