Facing intense pressure from competitors in the mid-sized sedan segment, the 2013 Honda Accord has dropped its price and increase its features in order to gain some ground back with customers. Full prices for every Accord model are available below.
The new Honda will be priced to start at $21,680 for an Accord LX with six-speed manual transmission, with a series of trims that offer a variety of sports or luxury features all the way up to the Accord Touring V-6 at $33,430. The two-door coupe version starts at $23,350 with the manual Accord LX-S and increases up to the Accord EX-L Navi V-6 at $32,350. Honda will also tack on an additional $790 destination charge.
The sedan will be available in dealerships beginning next Wednesday, September 19, while the coupe will debut on October 15.
The big difference between the 2013 Accord and the previous generation is the long list of standard technological features. While most models increase in price by less than $300, they all include thousands of dollars of standard new features, including alloy wheels, a rearview camera, Bluetooth and USB/iPod capability, Pandora radio apps, dual-zone automatic climate control and a 160-watt audio system.
If that seems like a lot for a sub-$25k sedan, it is. Honda is trying to set itself apart from established contenders like the Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima, as well as the redesigned Ford Fusion and revolutionary Hyundai Sonata – which offered so many amenities at such a bargain that every sedan since has rushed to keep up with their value.
What Honda has going for them is the wide variety of trims that can appeal to any demographic. The 2013 Accord is available with a four-cylinder or V-6 engine, in two doors or four, with a six-speed manual transmission or CVT, in Sport or Luxury models. Several of the four-cylinder sedans are EPA rated at 27/36 mpg (30 overall) which is solid for the segment. With its versatility, fuel efficiency and bushel of standard features, the 2013 Accord figures to regain plenty of ground in the most vital market for most automakers. Pricing for the new Accord PHEV has not yet been announced.
