Honda has revealed the 2023 Accord, the latest generation of its mid-size sedan that now offers a revised hybrid powertrain. The vehicle will be offered in six trim levels – LX, EX, Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, and Touring.
The line-up’s hybrid models (Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, Touring) feature a 4th-generation two-motor hybrid-electric system with a pair of electric motors that are now mounted side-by-side. An all-new 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder engine that adds direct fuel injection.
Inside the hybrid models, a 12.3-inch color touchscreen offers wireless compatibility for Apple CarPlay & Android Auto. The LX and EX offer a standard 7.0-inch touchscreen, which also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Across all models, a 10.2-inch digital driver instrumentation display is offered as standard.
The Touring model also sees Honda’s first integration of Google built-in, which provides Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play capability alongside a variety of the vehicle latest apps and services. Further convenience features include an available 15W wireless smartphone charger, a standard 6.0-inch HUD and 12-speaker Bose audio system. The LX, EX, and Sport models provide two USB-C ports, while two additional USB-C ports are offered for rear passengers in the EX-L and Touring models.
Across all models, OTA software updates will apply to many of the vehicle’s computer modules – enhancing its functionality and capabilities over time. All models similarly provide the Honda Sensing system as standard as well as Low-Speed Braking Control, Traffic Sign Recognition system, and a new Traffic Jam Assist.
Honda is targeting a early 2023 release for the Accord in the U.S., with the full pricing structure set to be announced closer to its launch.
