The all-new 11th-generation 2023 Honda Accord (Specs | News) is set to make its global debut in the United States in November 2022. This highly anticipated sedan boasts a more mature and elegant design that is sure to impress drivers and passengers alike. In fact, Honda Cars of America recently released a video showcasing just how advanced this new Accord truly is.
One of the key features of the US-spec Accord is its powertrains. Drivers can choose between a turbocharged 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine that produces 192 horsepower and 260 Nm of torque, or a 2.0-liter petrol-hybrid engine that delivers a combined 204 horsepower and 335 Nm of torque. The turbocharged petrol engine is paired with a CVT gearbox, while the hybrid engine is mated to an e-CVT.
But it's not just under the hood where the all-new Accord impresses. The sleeker and less busy design is one of the most talked-about features. The controversial "stapler" taillights of the previous generation are gone, replaced by slim LED taillights that flow along the tailgate. And speaking of the tailgate, it now has a one-touch self-opening mechanism for easier access to the trunk.
Inside, the all-new Accord offers more space and elegance, with a streamlined dashboard design and layout that is also found on other Honda models like the FE Civic and the all-new CR-V. The seats are also redesigned to provide more lumbar and pelvis support, as well as enhanced side bolstering for a more natural seating position.
As the most advanced generation of the Accord yet, this sedan also boasts a range of technological features. The American-spec Accord comes with a 12.3-inch wide touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. But what sets it apart is that it's the first Honda with Google built-in, similar to a Volvo. With Google Assistant, drivers can adjust the air conditioning temperature and access Google Maps for navigational assistance.
While the US-spec Accord does not come with a LaneWatch camera, it does feature Honda Sensing as standard on all variants. This includes a conventional blind-spot monitor that indicates on the side mirrors, along with a range of other safety features.
If you're in the market for a new car, you may be interested to know that the US-spec 2023 Honda Accord starts at just USD 27,295 (~RM 123k) for the petrol-powered variants, while the Accord Hybrid variants begin at USD 31,895 (~RM 144k).
