The ninth-generation Accord is coming this fall, and the all-new 2013 Accord Coupe Concept offers some exciting clues as to what we can expect.
It starts with a distinctively bold, athletic profile, showing off a four-sided honeycomb grille and deeply set multi-reflector headlights. Under the hood, there’s a choice of three available powertrains: an efficient, 2.4-litre direct-injected 4-cylinder, a powerful 3.5-litre V6 and a plug-in hybrid. Regardless of which one you choose, they are all expected to provide class-leading fuel efficiency. Both the Coupe and Sedan will also feature lots of the newest technology. And while both will retain their current spacious interior dimensions, the Sedan's exterior will be more compact, creating a more aggressive appearance.
The 2013 Accord will introduce features that are not currently available in any Honda: Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and the Honda-exclusive LaneWatch™ blind spot display. These new features demonstrate Honda’s consistent innovation when it comes to safety.
For eight generations, the Accord has been a favourite among Canadian drivers, making Car and Driver’s 10Best list a record 26 times. This next generation seems destined to keep that legacy going strong.
