Which should you buy, 2013 or 2014? The 2013.The price increase doesn’t really get you anything.
Honda's best-selling car saw a hefty redesign for 2013; for 2014, coupe and sedan versions of the Accord get only a few minor changes and a slight price increase. Model-year 2014 versions of the midsize sedan will start at $22,745, and coupes at $24,415 — that's an increase of $275 over model-year 2013 sedans and coupes (all prices include a $790 destination fee).
Sedans are again available in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L V6 and Touring trim, and coupes in LX-S, EX, EX-L and EX-L V6. The Accord Plug-in Hybrid was new for 2013, and a regular hybrid joins the lineup for 2014. Also new are two minor equipment features: "premium" seat fabric on the LX sedan, Honda says, and a "smarter" auto-dimming rearview mirror that no longer requires an on/off switch.
The 2014 Accord Coupe is on sale now, and the sedan will follow on Aug. 22. The Accord Hybrid will hit dealerships in October.
