No one was quite sure what to think when Honda released the news that they were completely redesigning their most popular model. While change is good, sometimes changing something that is all ready working great can be a tremendous risk. From what the critics are saying so far though, Honda just might pull that risk off. Not only does the redesign bring the Accord up to today’s expectations, it is has been given an additional boost in appeal that might sway some new drivers over to the Honda lineup for the first time ever.
Recently the Environmental Protection Agency rated the 2013 Honda Accord for gas mileage. The base model with the 2.4 liter direct injected four cylinder engine, when mated to the six speed manual gearbox has been given the official numbers of 24 city miles per gallon, 34 highway miles per gallon and 28 combined miles per gallon. That’s not bad at all considering you still get a considerable burst of assertive driving with the engine since it offers 185 horsepower and 177 pound feet of torque. Sure, not face melting, but assured enough for most day to day drivers.
Of course drivers can opt for the brand new continuously variable transmission if they are looking for more fuel economy for their 2013 Honda Accord. This boosts the mileage up to 27 city miles per gallon, 36 highway miles per gallon and 30 combined miles per gallon.
You can see the clean lines of the exterior in the following video. The interior for the 2013 Honda Accord has also been given its fair share of attention and has all the bells and whistles that a modern driver could expect along with comfort and enough room to feel at least somewhat spacious in.
