Default 2013 Honda Accord: First official images released

From AB

All-New 2013 Honda Accord Will Debut with Premium and Sophisticated
Exterior Styling

The most sculpted Accord ever is bigger on the inside and smaller on
the outside

TORRANCE, Calif., Aug. 8, 2012 – Honda today revealed the first images
of the much anticipated all-new 2013 Honda Accord Sedan and Accord
Coupe, set to go on sale this fall. The most sculpted Accord ever
delivers an even more spacious and luxurious passenger cabin wrapped
in an upscale, sophisticated exterior designed to stand the test of

The 2013 Accord's styling is expressive, sophisticated and premium.
Starting in the front, a bold new grille imparts a distinctive and
dynamic tension that complements the powerful look of the hood's
multiple styling lines. A strong side character line flows through the
door handles and flares upward toward the rear of the vehicle to
further convey a sense of motion. A deep contour in the rocker panel
firmly grounds its visual presence to the road and smartly turns
upward to convey a sporty attitude. In the back, the inward slope
where the fenders taper into the trunk and C-pillars is designed to
convey a powerful, athletic stance from the rear.

True to the spirit of Honda and every Accord before it, the
ninth-generation embraces a customer focus from the inside out. Smart
interior packaging allows for increased passenger and cargo space in
both the sedan and the coupe, while the overall exterior lengths are
noticeably shortened, contributing to a sportier driving character and
easier parking. An expansive greenhouse and generous rear seating area
provide excellent levels of visibility and comfort for the driver and
all passengers.

"This car is the most sculpted and the most dynamic Accord
yet," said Vicki Poponi, assistant vice president of product
planning for American Honda. "Following Honda's long-held
philosophy of 'man maximum, machine minimum,' the beautiful exterior
evolved from a focus on interior space and the needs of the people
inside it."

On the road, an overall aerodynamic shape combined with low-drag
exterior surfaces including nearly flush windshield glass,
flush-mounted windshield wipers and careful under-body tailoring
promise enhanced fuel efficiency. Premium details like available LED
daytime running lights, headlights and taillights hint at the
sophisticated technology and luxury available inside.
