Honda released the first pictures and details of the new 2013 Accord sedan and coupe. The new model has smaller size on the outside, but it’s roomier on the inside. It also has better aerodynamics and, according to Honda, it’s the most sculpted Accord ever. The sedan looks pretty normal, but the coupe variant is kinda chiseled and sculpted, especially around at the back.
The most notable design features on the new model include a bold new grille, side character lines that flows through the door handles and flares upward toward the rear of the vehicle, and a uniquely shaped C-pillar. The coupe meanwhile benefits from sports grille, revised bumpers, side skirts, different wheels and tailpipes, and a bootlid spoiler.
The 9th generation Honda Accord comes with a premium interior that is not only bigger than the last model’s, it’s better designed and made from higher quality materials. The rear seating area has also been enhanced in both coupe and sedan variants, and so has the cargo space.
Official specs of the car, including details of its new Earth Dreams engines will be released closer to the car’s launch this fall.
“This car is the most sculpted and the most dynamic Accord yet,” said Vicki Poponi, assistant vice president of product planning for American Honda. “Following Honda’s long-held philosophy of ‘man maximum, machine minimum,’ the beautiful exterior evolved from a focus on interior space and the needs of the people inside it.”
