2013 Honda Accord: Explaining The Trim Levels


(Cars.com)

Buying a Honda traditionally has been an all-or-nothing affair. If the 2012 Honda Accord SE has everything you want except Bluetooth, that would mean paying an extra $3,000 for an EX-L to get that common feature … plus a bunch of other stuff you may not want. The ninth-generation 2013 Honda Accord retains the mostly all-or-nothing trim setup, but now many more features are standard, including the common Bluetooth and not so common standard dual-zone climate control.

2013 Honda Accord Review

We'll walk you through the 2013's trim levels, what they include and their pricing below.

The new Accord comes equipped with a 185- or 189-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission; there’s also a 278-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The four-cylinder gets an EPA-rated 27/36/30 mpg city/highway/combined, while the V-6 can achieve 21/34/25 mpg, according to Honda.

The 2013 Accord sedan is available in nine exterior colors; the coupe is available in seven.  

The 2013 Accord sedan starts at $22,470, including the $790 destination fee.
