The Honda Accord is a well-known series of automobiles manufactured by Honda since 1976, and has been a best-selling car in the United States since 1989. The eleventh-generation Accord was unveiled on 10 November 2022 for the 2023 model year. The exterior of the car has been lengthened to accommodate the new hybrid powertrain system, but the wheelbase and height remain unchanged, while the car is 2mm wider than before.
The eleventh-generation Accord comes with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine from the previous generation, but with updates to feature improved VTEC variable valve lift technology, an upgraded direct injection system, a new cold-active catalyst, a high-rigidity crankshaft, and a revised oil pan to reduce engine noise. The power output is rated at 192 hp with 192 lb-ft of torque. The model also features a revised continuously variable transmission.
For the U.S. market, the 1.5-litre turbo engine is offered in LX and EX trim levels, while the hybrid option is available for Sport, EX-L, Sport-L and Touring trim levels. The car comes with a new 12.3-inch infotainment system that runs on the Android Automotive operating system. Honda expects the hybrid variant to account for 50 percent of the Accord’s sales.
