Honda has showcased some new photos of the newest 2013 Honda Accord Sedan and also the Coupe, which is the ninth generation of the best selling model of it’s kind. The interior space has apparently been increased, as the length overall is down a bit. As the styling is pretty much resembling the Hyundai Genesis from the very rear, but there are similar designs from the Sonata in this car additionally. The very front end is completely with LED running lights which makes it look even more refined than the Sonata to most people, and it’s very good to see Honda bringing back LED tail lamps finally.
No shots of the interior have been shown yet, which no prices on any of the models has been shown either. There are also no details on the engine. The Accord is going to be on sale until later this fall. If you see the press release below you’ll see the company hyperbole, with just a few details.
Honda has shown these images as being the first look of the highly anticipated 2013 Honda Accord Sedan & Coupe, which is going to be on sale as of the fall time frame of 2012. As being the most sculpted Accord ever that provides even more space and luxury to the passenger cabin that is wrapped in a upscale, and complicated exterior design that is set to last the test of time itself.
For 2013 the Accord’s newest styling is pretty impressive in my opinion, which after the Accord design from 98′-02′ were the best designs, ever since I haven’t seen the Accords look any better but actually uglier. This design upgrade completes that, this is what I’ve been waiting for.
The front has a bold new grille that gives it a dynamic and distinctive look, while the hood provides multiple styling lines. A new character flows through the door handles and towards the rear of the vehicle to give the consumers a sense of feeling. The rocker panel makes a firm ground in the car and the visual presence to the road is pushed forward to give the driver a more sporty feel of the car. In the very back, the slope inward, fenders the taper into the drink and also the C-pillars are designed to convey a more powerful athletic stand from the very rear.
The spirit of Honda is embraced even more in this model, so this 9th generation Accord embraces the focus of customers, from the inside and out.
What I am looking forward to is the LED daytime running lights, and seeing if the coupe will be available in a manual 6-speed transmission.
As for the Honda Crosstour which is a breed coming from the Accord, what I think we should see in the design of it is something similar to the TSX Sport Wagon that is only available in the U.S. right now. The current design of the Crosstour is very ugly in my own opinion, and it’s sad to see these vehicles only available in Automatic transmissions. But it is what it is I guess, at least the Accord Coupe has been offered with a standard in the past few years in the V6 and the 4cyl models usually coming in standard as well.
