Honda in the past has been criticized for being skimpy on features, but this is no longer the case with the 2013 Accord.
The 2013 Honda Accord Sedan will be offered in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, V6, and Touring trims, with the Coupe available in LX-S, EX, EX-L, and EX-L V6 models. Bluetooth connectivity is now included throughout the lineup, not just in top trims, and all 2013 Honda Accord models include USB and iPod integration plus a rearview camera and an Expanded View Driver’s Mirror. Dual-zone automatic climate control, 16-inch alloy wheels, and an eight-inch i-MID display plus Pandora audio streaming and SMS text-messaging capability are all included in the base LX model.
Stepping up to the Sport model gets you fog lamps, a rear spoiler, steering-wheel shift paddles, a power driver's seat, a dual exhaust, and 18-inch alloy wheels. EX models get a power moonroof, plus the LaneWatch system, push-button entry, heated side mirrors, and 17-inch wheels, while the EX-L brings on a taste of luxury, with leather upholstery, a memory driver's seat, heated seats, Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning, and a HondaLink system featuring Aha streaming entertainment capability in an upgraded 360-watt sound system.
Adaptive Cruise Control is exclusive to the Touring Sedan, which also includes Honda’s first LED projector headlamps, while LED brake lights are included in EX-L and Touring models. All V6 models include daytime LED running lamps.
Honda is offering an underbody kit, additional side molding, a sport grille, rear wing spoiler, and other extras such as illuminated door sills as dealer-installed accessories.
Honda piles on the useful features, even in LX and EX trims, while the EX-L and Touring models get the traditional luxury treatment.
