Calling it “the most sculpted Accord” ever, Honda has revealed the first official images of its 9th generation mid-size sedan.

In a way it carries over the traditional Accord styling we have seen over the decades, but at the same time, ushers in a modern era that clearly sets it apart from its predecessor.

The 2013 Accord offers increased passenger and cargo space compared to the previous generation, while the overall length has been noticeably shortened – offering a sportier driving experience. While not very many details have been revealed, Honda did mention the LED daytime running lights, headlights, and taillights, hinting at the technology and luxury that will be available on the next-generation Accord.

“This car is the most sculpted and the most dynamic Accord yet,” said Vicki Poponi, assistant vice president of product planning for American Honda. “Following Honda’s long-held philosophy of ‘man maximum, machine minimum,’ the beautiful exterior evolved from a focus on interior space and the needs of the people inside it.”

Honda has done a nice job with the design of the 2013 Accord but the new Fusion is the winner IMHO.

That is THE SAME car as last year - maybe the overhangs have shrunken, but the hard points from the a, b, and c pillar are exactly the same - this is a pure reskin - nothing new - just like Hondull had done for decades - same basic structure with new sheet metal hung from it. Hondull is a corrupt company that has forgotten that in the 1970's and 1980's it actually made great vehicles. After that, forget it - total fraud.

I am really very happy to see such an impressive model of car. it looks small but it has more space for your passengers. it provides sportier driving experience and it is highly considered good in comparison to the previous generation cars.

Mild exterior changes, but yet a significant overall improvement in looks, on the way to dinner the other night I went through the Honda Dealer, they had a 2012 and 2013 sitting side-by-side still very similar, yet the 2013 looks so much better.
