2013 Honda Accord Coupe

What’s New for the 2013 Honda Accord Coupe?

The 2013 Honda Accord Coupe is all-new inside and out. Significant improvements include better fuel economy, more power, and more interior room.

2013 Honda Accord Coupe Exterior

The 2013 Honda Accord Coupe could very well be mistaken for a sports car. Sharp lines and an overall decrease in length help it gain better command of the road. It still looks like the popular Accord everyone knows about, but with a few modern upgrades like LED exterior lights and the sexy honeycomb grille.

2013 Honda Accord Coupe Performance

The 2013 Honda Accord Sedan offers two gasoline engines and three transmissions. The base engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder producing 185 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque via either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic. The optional engine is a 3.5-liter Earth Dreams V6 producing 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque via a six-speed automatic. Both the four-cylinder and V6 are notably strong for the segment, accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in just 7.5 seconds and 6.1 seconds, respectively.

2013 Honda Accord Coupe Efficiency

The base engine gets 28 mpg combined (24 mpg city/34 mpg highway) with the standard transmission. With the CVT automatic, that number goes up to 30 mpg combined (27 mpg city/36 mpg highway). The 3.5-liter V6 is also impressively economical given its power output with an EPA rating of 25 mpg combined (21 mpg city/34 mpg highway).

2013 Honda Accord Coupe Interior

The 2013 Honda Accord Coupe delivers a hefty amount of road visibility. This is augmented by the nifty LaneWatch display that uses a tiny camera under the passenger-side mirror to display what’s happening in the driver’s blind spot when a turning signal is engaged. The roomy interior, supportive seats, and overall quality of the materials ensure that all passengers in the 2013 Accord Coupe want for nothing in terms of comfort.

2013 Honda Accord Coupe Safety

The 2013 Honda Accord Coupe comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, active front head restraints, front seat side airbags, and side curtain airbags. It received the best possible five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the best possible rating of “Good” in the IIHS’s frontal-offset, side, and roof strength tests.
