Honda’s tough family sedan will debut a new look for the 2023 model year soon. The Japanese automaker has released three teaser images of the 2023 Accord midsize car, and from what we can see so far, it will have a slick design. third image, the new car’s infotainment display shows an image that draws attention to the hybrid powertrain.
A redesigned Honda Accord will be launched for the 2023 model year, marking the 11th generation for the popular nameplate, which has been in continuous production since 1976. From teaser photos shown here, we can see that the new Accord will sport a smoother design that fits right in between Honda’s newer offerings, such as the compact Civic car and the upcoming electric SUV Prologue.
Bright LED lighting elements accentuate the clean lines of the new design, while an elongated hexagonal grille carries an attractive triangular insert. At the rear, the Accord’s taillights extend almost the entire width of the car, save for a small break in the center of the boot lid to make way for a small Honda logo.
The 12.3-inch infotainment display features an image showing the 2023 Accord’s hybrid powertrain in action. We’ve previously reported that Honda has expressed its intent to grow Accord hybrid sales numbers, so we’re not surprised to see the electrified powertrain promoted in these teaser images.
Honda hasn’t released any details on the Accord’s powertrains yet, and while it’s clear the company is moving the hybrid to the midpoint, we still expect a non-hybrid powertrain to be the base offering. That could turn out to be the same turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder as the current model or it could be the more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged turbo from the current Accord Sport. The current Accord Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors that together make 181 horsepower, but this time it could get the hybrid system from the 2023 CR-V SUV that uses a turbo engine and delivers 204 horsepower.
It’s no secret that the Accord is regularly among our favorite cars, as the nameplate has won our annual 10Best award 36 times over the years. It’s the Accord’s balanced handling combined with great value and superb build quality that has impressed our editors in the past.
Obviously, we have high expectations for the 2023 model and are eager to learn more about the new generation. But we’ll have to wait with everyone else until the rest of the car is unveiled in November 2022.
