Honda Accord tops the luxury vehicles
In the history of Honda, the launch of new 2013 Accord is a milestone. The ninth generation Accord is living up to the hype of the media buzzes surrounding its launch, joined together along with a complete redesign and a whole slew of industry-leading standard features.
The person who road tested the all-new Accord for VehicleTests.com, Chris Kelly said “The latest incarnation of the Accord represents the best value-per-dollar of any vehicle on the market. After seeing all the high-tech standard features that come with the Accord, I got reverse sticker shock because the car was so inexpensive with more technology and safety features than a lot of luxury cars that are twice its price.” The VehicleTests.com awarded the 2013 Honda Accord with its vaunted 5-Star rating. The 2013 Honda Accord starts at $21,680 and is full of with high-tech standard features. Kelly further adds “After I spent the whole day driving the new Accord, I found myself missing the great features it has once I got back into my own car. You get used to those features really fast.”
The 2013 Accord comes at starting price of $21,680 with a collection of hi-tech standard features, including a rearview camera and Expanded View Driver’s Mirror. Other standard technologies include Bluetooth HandsFreeLink phone interface, Multi-Information Display (i-MID), SMS text messaging function and Pandora Internet Radio interface.
One of the main feature to which Kelly drew the attention refers is the new Honda Lane Watch blind-spot display, which enhances visibility of the passenger-side roadway. The Lane Departure Warning system uses cameras to make sure the vehicle is aligned within the lines on the roadway and alerts the driver if he or she is drifting. The vehicle comes with four-wheel anti-lock braking system, a total of six airbags, including front and rear head airbags and dual front side-mounted airbags.
The 2013 Accord comes in eight different trim levels, from the standard LX to the EXL, including the all-new Sport and top-of-the-line Touring models. Engine options include the 2.4L four-cylinder with 185 horsepower and the six-cylinder with 278 horsepower, which is more horsepower than the Lexus ES.
