For the 2023 model year, Honda will introduce an all-new Accord with a sophisticated design that is possibly the prettiest ever used on the company's storied family sedan. Except for the two base trims, every new generation of the Accord comes standard with a hybrid powertrain, making it a major component of the portfolio.

These two, the LX and EX, are equipped only with continuously variable automatic transmissions and are powered by the dependable 192-hp, 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine from the previous generation (CVT).

The new 204-hp, a four-cylinder hybrid system that was borrowed almost entirely intact from the CR-V powers all of the upper grades. Design cues from the recently updated Civic, CR-V, and HR-V have been incorporated into the Accord's interior to complement the handsome exterior styling.

These cues include a honeycomb-patterned dash trim that conceals the air vents and a freestanding rectangular infotainment display that protrudes from the top of the instrument panel. Speaking of infotainment, the 2023 Accord comes equipped with a slew of modernized technology, including a newly standard digital gauge display and an optional 12.3-inch infotainment screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

What has Changed for 2023?

The Honda Accord's 11th generation debuts with the 2023 model year and is completely updated and more attractive than its predecessor. We anticipate the new Accord to go on sale in the first half of 2023 now that we've had a chance to examine it and understand more about its many trim levels and engine options.

2023 Accord: Engine and Performance

The 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the LX and EX grades of the Accord generates 192 horsepower and propels the front wheels via a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

The 2023 Accord lacks all-wheel drive, just like earlier iterations of the Accord. In the lineup, the hybrid powertrain is given more prominence. It is the only powertrain available on Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, and Touring models, and it combines a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with two electric motors to produce 204 horsepower.

This model of the Accord only has a CVT; no manual transmission will be available. To enhance the handling and ride quality of its family car, Honda claims to have modified the suspension and steering. When we get a chance to test drive a production vehicle, we'll evaluate that and other factors, and we'll update this article with the results.

2023 Accord: Interior and Comfort

The interior of the Accord is similarly stylish, with features adapted from the newest Honda models that serve as a familial link between them. For instance, the HVAC air vents are concealed by a section of honeycomb trim, a creative design choice that is also present in the new Civic and the CR-V SUV.

According to Honda, the front seats in the Accord have been reworked to provide stronger torso support, and the trunk has been expertly sculpted to store up to 16.7 cubic feet of goods. All trims save for the LX, EX, and Sport come with leather upholstery.

2023 Accord: Connectivity

Easy access to the Accord's infotainment system is provided by an upright 7.0- or 12.3-inch touchscreen display, and all versions, regardless of grade, come standard with a 10.2-inch digital gauge display.

All models in the lineup support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but only those with the larger 12.3-inch touchscreen do so with wireless connectivity. High-end Touring trims include a 12-speaker Bose stereo system, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and a 6.0-inch head-up display.

2023 Accord: Pricing

The base variant of the new 2023 Honda Accord is priced at $28,000 (est), while the top-of-line [Touring Hybrid] is priced at $40,000 (est).

Which one to Purchase?

Before the new Accord goes on sale, we won't know its exact price, but we do know that it will be available in six different configurations, four of which will only be available with a hybrid powertrain. We'll update this article and suggest the model that represents the greatest value after Honda releases price information and specifics on the standard and optional features for the 2023 Accord.
