Model Preview

In a world of SUVs, the Honda Accord soldiers on as a family-friendly midsize sedan that’s efficient, enjoyable to drive, and comfortable. For the upcoming 2023 model year, we expect the Accord to arrive as a carryover model, but a redesign could be in the cards based on the vehicle’s model cycle. Honda has not confirmed its plans for the 2023 Accord yet.

The current, 10th-gen Accord came out in 2018. Honda gave the sedan a light refresh in 2021. As a carryover model, the 2023 Accord is expected to retain the same exterior design as the current sedan on sale. The current Accord has a muscular, yet elegant look with sharp body lines, a Sportback rear end, and a large grille with horizontal bars. The C-shaped taillights are the current Accord’s most daring design elements, with the sedan playing it conservatively for the most part. In the case of a redesign, we expect the 2023 Accord to arrive with a similar design as the new Honda Civic with a more elegant look, a slimmer grille, and chunkier exterior lighting.

On the inside, the current Accord sedan features a restrained and simple design. The center console features large dials and clear buttons for the HVAC system, while the infotainment system sits higher up on the dashboard and features its own set of physical controls. Instead of a traditional shift knob, the Accord features buttons for the shifter, freeing up storage space in the center console. In the midsize class, the Accord offers one of the more spacious cabins. A carryover 2023 Accord will feature the same interior design, while a redesigned model will feature a more high-end cabin that’s borrowed from the Civic. A redesigned Accord is expected to feature large buttons and dials, but have a more high-end design with a simplistic dashboard and upgraded materials.

On the tech front, the current Accord comes with an eight-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, two USB ports, four audio speakers, and Bluetooth as standard equipment. Available tech features include navigation, a Wi-Fi hot spot, wireless smartphone compatibility, a wireless charging pad, and 10 audio speakers. A carryover Accord would see the sedan have the same features as the current model on sale. A fully redesigned Accord would result in a larger touchscreen, more standard features, and upgraded tech features like an available digital instrument cluster.

Honda offers the current Accord with three powertrains. The standard engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that makes 192 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. A more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that’s rated at 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque is available. The efficient Accord Hybrid comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor for a combined output of 212 hp. The hybrid carries a combined rating of up to 47 mpg, while the base four-cylinder can get up to 33 mpg combined. We don’t expect Honda to make any major changes to these powertrains for the 2023 model year.

In crash-testing conducted by the NHTSA and IIHS, the current Accord earned excellent marks. The IIHS named the Accord a Top Safety Pick+, earning “Good” ratings in all six crash tests. The IIHS gave the sedan a five-star overall safety rating.

The current Accord comes standard with the automaker’s Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety features. Standard equipment on the Accord includes forward-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, automatic high-beam assist, and a driver drowsiness monitor. Available features include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a head-up display, a rear-seat alert, and parking sensors. These features should remain the same for 2023.

Pricing & Release Date

Honda has not made any announcements about when the 2023 Accord will go on sale. Typically, we’ve seen the automaker come out with new vehicles in the fall, so we could see the sedan go on sale before the end of 2022.

Pricing for the 2023 Honda Accord remains a mystery. If the Accord arrives as a carryover model, it will have the same range as the current model that costs between $26,485 and $38,415 (with destination). A redesign would see pricing go up closer to the $40,000 mark for a fully loaded model.

The Honda Accord competes with the Mazda6, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, Hyundai Sonata, and Kia K5.

Stay tuned for more information as it is revealed to us.
