The 2023 Honda Accord is the 11th generation of the model and it has been teased by the Japanese car maker.


The car will come with two powertrains; a hybrid and a petrol option. The petrol-powered car will use a 1.5-litre, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine that produces 195 hp and 260 Nm of torque. It will be mated to a CVT automatic. The hybrid Accord will employ a 2.0-litre, Atkinson-cycle, four-cylinder engine paired with a two-motor hybrid-electric system making 207 hp and 335 Nm of torque. The hybrid model will only be offered in four trims: Sport, EX-L, Sport-L and Touring. The petrol car will be available in two trims;  LX and EX. That makes it a total of six trims and two variants to choose from for the 2023 Honda Accord.


In terms of exterior styling, the car gets long and straight lines with an upright front grille and blacked-out LED headlamp units. The car has grown longer by 2.8 inches and runs on 17-inch wheels while top trims come shod with 19-inch alloy wheels. Colour options include Meteorite Gray Metallic, Urban Gray Pearl and Canyon River Blue Metallic.

Inside the cabin, the 2023 Accord gets a 10.2-inch digital instrument panel along with a 12.3-inch touchscreen that features wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other noteworthy features include Qi-compatible 15W wireless smartphone charging,  Google built-in, 12-speaker Bose system, six-inch head-up display and Over the Air (OTA) software updates. The entry level trims get a seven-inch touchscreen audio system instead of the 12-inch unit.

Driver safety kit includes driver and passenger front airbags, knee and rear passenger side-impact airbags, camera with a 90-degree field of view, wide-angle radar with a 120-degree field of view, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS) to name a few.

There is no official statement about the 2023 Accord making its way to India. If it does, the car will go up against the likes of the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Skoda Superb.
