2023 Honda Accord teased, debuts in November

The Honda Accord 2023 will debut in November, but in the meantime, Honda has released a teaser of the redesigned midsize sedan.

Honda had few details — including the actual reveal date — in its brief press release, but confirmed a 12.3-inch touchscreen, built-in Google connectivity (a first for the brand), and “a more responsive and fun-to-drive hybrid powertrain.”

Teaser images show styling influenced by the recently redesigned Civic, particularly in the taillights, with a bit of the 2023 CR-V in the grille. Honda also gave a glimpse of that new touchscreen, which is much larger than the current-generation Accord’s 8.0-inch screen and more in line with other automakers’ offerings.

The 2023 Accord represents the 11th generation of the model and replaces a version dating back to the 2018 model year. The Accord has remained a benchmark for midsize sedans, although it’s likely less important to Honda’s bottom line now that crossovers are the cash cows of the automobile. be industry.

Details on the powertrain will have to wait until the unveiling of the November 2023 deal, but don’t bet on a return of the manual transmission. Honda died after the 2020 model year.

One question is how much Honda plans to emphasize the new Accord Hybrid. The automaker previously said it plans to increase the model mix of the 2023 CR-V to 50% hybrid sales as part of an effort to use hybrids as a gateway to electric cars, which will start in earnest with the 2024 Prologue SUV. Honda is also planning a new Civic Hybrid to replace the Insight, so hybrids will be an important part of the automaker’s plans in the future.
