2023 Honda Accord Sport Engine – The 2023 Honda Accord won’t be the first generation of the venerable midsize sedan to give the impression of a luxury car, but it may be the first Accord to look real. Recently unveiled with a sleek new design, the 11th generation model looks sharper, more modern, and more symmetrical than anything else in its class. Although we’re sad that the powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged upgrade engine is gone, Honda assures us that the hybrid drivetrain has been greatly improved, and that the base 1.5-liter engine carries forward with tweaks to improve refinement and economy. of fuel.
The lineup is being reconfigured to emphasize the hybrid model, as Honda aims for the gas-electric Accord to account for 50 percent of sales. Non-hybrid LX and EX trims come with a revised automatic transmission and continuously variable turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four; horsepower and torque the same 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft as before. (The manual transmission won’t make a profit, as Honda dropped it from the previous-generation Accord midway through its run due to low demand.)

The other four 2023 Accord trims—Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, and Touring—are hybrids only and come with an updated version of the two-motor drivetrain from the previous Accord hybrid. As in the new CR-V hybrid, the two electric motors are now arranged side by side, and the 2.0-liter Atkinson gas engine inline-four gets direct fuel injection. Combined power output is 204 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque, and Honda claims it will feel more responsive than the previous system. EPA fuel economy ratings aren’t available yet, but it should pick up a few extra mpg compared to the current Accord hybrid’s 48-mpg combined rating.

Although the new Accord is 2.8 inches longer than before, its wheelbase is unchanged, and it will likely ride and handle much like the outgoing model. That’s fine by us, as we like the current Accord’s refined road manners, but Honda says it’s increased chassis rigidity, tuned the suspension, and widened the front track by 0.6 inches. All Accords include Normal and Econ driving modes, while the hybrids also offer a Sport mode and an Individual mode that will allow drivers to adjust the vehicle’s different settings.
While the clean new exterior styling steals the show, the interior looks better than before as well. As with the new Civic and CR-V cabins, the Accord has piano-black trim and a mesh cover for the air vents that span the width of the dashboard. A 7.0-inch touchscreen with volume and tuning knobs comes standard in non-hybrid trims, and a much larger 12.3-inch screen (also with a volume knob) is offered in hybrid models. Wireless smartphone mirrors are only offered with the larger screen, but a 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster is standard across the board. There’s a little extra legroom in the back, and cargo space is unchanged at 17 cubic feet.
A full complement of driver assistance features will come standard on all trim levels, but many of the nicer features – like leather upholstery – are reserved for hybrids only. The Touring is the full trim, which comes with features like a head-up display, cooled front seats, heated rear seats, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and a variety of Google apps built in infotainment system.
We’re expecting a slight price increase for the new Accord, but we won’t know the details until closer to the car’s on-sale date in early 2023. Look for the LX to start around $28,000 and the Sport hybrid to be around $33,000, with the loaded Touring pushing $40,000.

The 2023 Accord is the 11th generation version of the car that went on sale in America in 1976, and it’s a very different vehicle than the one that made the nameplate a household name. . the architecture of the previous generation car. Still, any similarities were mostly in general proportions, the standard turbocharged engine, and Honda design philosophies and general layout principles.
For the 2023 model year, the new Accords come in LX, EX, Sport, EX-L, new Sport-L and Touring trim levels. Most of them are hybrids. Only the LX and EX have a conventional 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. All-wheel drive is not yet on the menu.
The new 2023 Honda Accord is 2.7 inches longer than the car it replaces, and to my eyes, most of that extra length resides in front of the front wheels. Indeed, Honda reports that the new Accord’s hood is longer than before, crediting my observation.
This look, along with a simple, clean, but simple graphics, represents a departure from the outgoing model. Stylistically, the tenth generation Accord was a winner, with a short front overhang and tight, sinuous, flowing lines. Some of the details may not have been to everyone’s taste, but the basic design was great.

However, time moves on, so the new 2023 Accord adopts a more technical look with modern LED lights. The result is attractive, and a wider rear track of almost half an inch improves its position, but in general, the design is not as convincing as its predecessor.
Wheel choices will affect the look, so here’s the line. The 2023 Accord LX gets silver 17-inch alloys, while the EX and EX-L have gray 17s. For 19-inch black wheels, you’ll want the Sport or Sport-L. The Touring model in the accompanying photos features gloss black 19s with triangular machined detailing.
The 2023 Accord Touring also features a unique combination of silver and black exterior trim, while the Sport and Sport-L get black side mirrors and a black spoiler. Three new paint colors for the first time: Canyon River Blue, Urban Gray Pearl, and Meteorite Grey.
According to Honda, the company paid close attention to the new Accord’s interior materials, touch points, graphics, and the look and feel of the switches. But then, the car manufacturer always does this, so this is nothing new. The result, especially with the Touring trim, is an interior that looks more upscale than you might expect.

You’ll notice the 2023 Accord adopts the metal mesh dashboard trim and inset air vents that first debuted on the 2022 Civic and have since been added to Honda models. another. Digital instrumentation is standard, and all hybrid-powered trims have a large 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment display, replacing the 7-inch in the LX and EX trims. Overall, the look is more sophisticated than the outgoing model.
As was the case before, the new 2023 Accord is spacious and comfortable, especially in the back seat, where it provides 40.8 inches of legroom. Although it competes in the traditional mid-size car segment, it could easily be a full-size sedan.
For the 2023 model year, the Accord gets new “body-stabilizing” front seat designs that Honda says will reduce fatigue on long trips. Get the Accord LX or EX and you can choose between Gray or Black cloth upholstery. Accord EX also has an 8-way adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a power sunroof.
Opt for the 2023 Accord Sport and the car has unique black cloth seats, aluminum pedals, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The new-for-2023 Accord Sport-L has leather seats, just like the Accord EX-L. The touring trim adds ventilated front seats and heated rear seats.

The storage space is equal to the outgoing model, and the trunk is the same size. In other words, it’s huge, providing 16.7 cubic feet of cargo space, more than any other car in the class.
With the LX and EX trim, the Accord comes with a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 192 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 192 pound-feet between 1,700 rpm and 5,000 rpm. It is connected to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) to power the front wheels of the car.
Compared to the same engine in the outgoing car, and according to Honda, the updated 1.5-liter turbo offers better response, lower emissions, and increased refinement. CVT upgrades are said to reduce powertrain noise, and cam shift programming helps it sound and feel more natural during wide-open throttle acceleration. Drivers can choose between Econ driving and normal driving
