For those in the market for a new family sedan (or coupe), Honda has announced pricing and detailed fuel economy numbers for the 2013 Accord range. Base MSRP for the 2013 Honda Accord LX sedan is set at $21,680, while the Coupe carries a base MSRP of $23,350 not including $790 for destination. This represents a price increase of less than $300 for the sedan and $200 for the coupe versus the outgoing model.
Accord LX sedan models with Honda’s new continuously variable transmission start at $22,480, the upmarket EX will set you back $24,605, and the Accord EX-L with navigation rings in at $29,995. These models are all equipped with a 2.4-liter inline-four making 185 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. Six-speed manual-equipped models achieve 24 miles per gallon city and 34 mpg highway while vehicles with the CVT put up 27/36 mpg city/highway.
Opting for a Sport model will get you a 189-horsepower version of that same inline-four, and doing so will set you back $23,390 for a six-speed manual model, which returns the same fuel economy numbers as the non-Sport 6MT models. A Sport model with a CVT achieves 26 city and 35 highway mpg with a base MSRP of $24,190.
Anyone seeking the 278-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 will have to shell out $30,070 for an EX-L V6 sedan, while the range-topping Accord Touring V6 starts at $33,430. These models are equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and deliver 21/34 mpg city/highway.
The Accord Coupe EX-L V6 starts at $30,350, and can be had with a six-speed manual, which drops fuel economy to 18/28 mpg city/highway (six-speed automatic models achieve 21/32 mpg). No pricing or fuel economy numbers have been announced for the Accord Plug-In Hybrid.
The sedan will hit dealers on Wednesday, September 19, while the Coupe will arrive Monday, October 15.
