Top speed is governed at 126 mph, which is plenty fast; once you pass the legal highway limit while, say, turning a 15.2-second quarter-mile at 93 mph, the Accord no longer feels as steadfast as it did a few seconds earlier.

Reviews Word on the street for the Honda Accord


8.8
Accord coupes come with 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels.Sixteen-inch alloys are standard on the sedan — most competitors have steel wheels in their base models — and 17s and 18s are optional.

8.2
The 4-cylinder engine has direct injection and is mated to a CVT automatic transmission for better fuel economy, while the V6 has more power and exceptional fuel efficiency.

Overall

8.5 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Powertrain

Mated to the 4-cylinder, this CVT feels much like a normal automatic, mimicking gear changes.
by KBB (Feb, 2013)
Two gasoline engines and three new transmissions are offered in the 2013 Honda Accord.
by KBB (Feb, 2013)
With the requisite six-speed manual (a continuously variable transmission is optional on all four-cylinder Accords), an Accord Sport comes in only two colors: black and dark gray.
by Car and Driver (Feb, 2013)

Transmission

Inside, Sport trim upgrades are a leather-wrapped wheel and a 10-way power driver’s seat; all Accords come with automatic climate control, Bluetooth, and steering-wheel-mounted phone and audio-system controls.

Even a base Honda Accord LX is well-equipped, with features such as an 8-inch color display with rear-view camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, 16-inch wheels, and a 160-watt AM/FM/CD stereo with Pandora Internet radio compatibility.
by KBB (Feb, 2013)

Manual

This bifurcated configuration has made us appreciate the relative simplicity of our Sport manual.
by Car and Driver (Feb, 2013)
Beyond that, we saw no need for backup sensors on a car with a standard reverse camera, especially when the Accord offers such good visibility in all directions.

Engine

That extra cash covers a modest power boost, 18-inch aluminum wheels, fog lamps, a tasteful spoiler, and chromed dual-exhaust tips.

Among the biggest features are satellite navigation, the V6 engine, a 7-speaker/360-watt audio system, 18-inch wheels, leather seating, multi-angle rear-view camera, LED headlights, blind-spot display, and adaptive cruise control.
by KBB (Feb, 2013)

Performance

a base Accord has good power for acceleration and passing, yet attains an impressive 36 mpg on the highway.
by KBB (Feb, 2013)
Fortunately, the hot roughness only becomes apparent under heavier freeway braking.
by Car and Driver (Oct, 2013)
If there’s a downside to the Accord’s excellence, it’s that it also encourages heroic driving, which has taken a toll on our brakes.
