About Honda Accord
The Honda Accord is a Car and Driver favorite, winning our 10Best award year after year with its spacious interior, driver-friendly road manners, and impeccable build quality. For 2023, it wins a 10Best award yet again for its stunning overall competence. The Accord is all-new for the 2023 model year, and it wears an elegant design that’s arguably the prettiest ever applied to Honda’s venerable family sedan. The hybrid powertrain has become a more significant part of the Accord lineup for this new generation as it’s standard on all but the two least-expensive trims. Those two, the LX and EX, are powered by the familiar 192-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine carried over from the outgoing model—and they come exclusively with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The upper trims are all powered by a new 204-hp four-cylinder hybrid system borrowed essentially intact from the CR-V. The Accord’s designers have complimented the handsome exterior styling by sprucing up the cabin with design elements borrowed from the recently redesigned Civic, CR-V, and HR-V, including honeycomb-pattern dash trim that hides the air vents and a freestanding rectangular infotainment display sprouting from the top of the instrument panel. Speaking of infotainment, the 2023 Accord features a host of updated tech, including a new standard digital gauge display and an available 12.3-inch infotainment screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
