The 2013 Honda Accord is actually a bit shorter than last year's model, but it's packaged better than ever, with an excellent interior design, an improved back seat and cargo area, and significantly improved cabin refinement.
Thanks to a rather low beltline, there's more window glass all around, and that lends a sense of airiness and spaciousness. with thinner-than typical front and rear pillars—should not only keep your rear passengers from needing Dramamine but also helps you stay safe with a better view outward.
But it's not just that; rear legroom increases about an inch, while shoulder room in front and in back is improved. Front seats have a new design this year, with better back support for longer trips.
Trunk space is not only larger (15.8 cubic feet) but the cargo floor is now flat. Although one thing that we (and some shoppers, we're sure) would like to see in the Accord is a split-folding back seat. All 2013 Accord models include a rather inconvenient single-folding seat arrangement.
Beware that models with the larger 18-inch wheels--and V-6 models in general--tend to have a bit less composure on bumpy roads than base models.Thanks to additional noise insulation, the Accord is now one of the quietest mid-size sedans inside. All 2013 Accord models include both Active Noise Control and Active Sound Control, which help cancel out road noise especially.
