2023 Honda Accord Preview
Traditional sedans are starting to go the way of the station wagon. Fewer of them are available, and with each year that passes, more drive off into that great big scrapyard in the sky. Those that remain still sell in significant enough numbers to justify their continued existence, so people who prefer 4-door cars to crossover SUVs will have a redesigned 2023 Honda Accord to consider.

The 2023 Accord is the 11th-generation version of the car that first went on sale in America in 1976, and it is a far different vehicle from the one that made the nameplate a household name. Honda bases the new 2023 Accord on an upgraded version of the previous-generation car’s architecture. Still, any similarities lay primarily in overall proportions, the standard turbocharged engine, and general Honda design philosophies and layout principles.
For the 2023 model year, the new Accord comes in LX, EX, Sport, EX-L, new Sport-L, and Touring trim levels. Most of them are hybrids. Only the LX and EX have a conventional turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine. All-wheel drive is still not on the menu.
