Did Honda Get The 2013 Accord's Design Right? #YouTellUs

August 8, 2012
The mid-size sedan segment is heating up, with all-new entries from most of the major automakers either on sale now or arriving soon. Honda has finally revealed the new 2013 Accord in production trim, and it begs the question: Did Honda get the 2013 Accord's design right?

Honda is calling the new Accord's design sculpted and sharper. The front end is more swept back, and it features a new grille along with angular headlights. The sides have a stronger character line that runs the length of the car. The photos show new LED daytime running lights and LED taillights, though we aren't sure yet if those will be standard on all trim levels.

Ford revealed the new Fusion in January at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, and many were taken aback by the striking design. With styling cues that somewhat mimic both Jaguar and Aston Martin models, many feel that the new 2013 Fusion features exotic luxury-car styling for a reasonable price.

Both the current Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima feature aggressive styling with swept-back headlights and lots of sculpting. The wrap-around taillights on both models add visual width, making them appear larger than they really are.

So in a segment with so many stylish choices, did Honda get the 2013 Accord's design right? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
