with an MSRP Starting Under $22,000

09/10/2012 - TORRANCE, Calif.,
The dynamic all-new 2013 Honda Accord Sedan will debut at U.S. dealers
nationwide on September 19, with a manufacturer's suggested retail
price (MSRP) ranging from $21,680 for the well-equipped Accord LX to
$33,430 for the luxurious Accord Touring model, plus a destination and
handling charge1 of $790 per vehicle. The Accord Coupe will go on sale
October 15 with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP)
starting at $23,350 for the sporty LX-S model plus a destination and
handling charge1.

The all-new Accord adds thousands of dollars worth of standard
features and technologies with average pricing across the sedan lineup
increasing by less than $300. The price of the most popular Accord LX
(4-cylinder) trim is up by only $200.

The 2013 Honda Accord has been fully redesigned from the ground up to
deliver new levels of refinement, sophistication, fuel efficiency and
fun-to-drive performance in the midsize segment. Every new Accord is
equipped with alloy wheels, and standard features now also include a
rearview camera, an Expanded View Driver's Mirror, Bluetooth®
HandsFreeLink®, USB/iPod® integration, Pandora® internet radio
compatibility, SMS text message function, dual-zone automatic climate
control, and a 160-watt AM/FM/CD audio system.

"The 2013 Accord excels in all areas with sophisticated design, a
luxurious interior, world-class dynamic performance, class-leading
standard features and legendary Honda quality, all at a tremendous
value for the customer," said John Mendel, executive vice
president of sales, American Honda Motor Co. Inc., "2012 is the
year of the midsize sedan, and the new Accord will once again solidify
Honda's position at the head of the pack."

New to the Accord Sedan lineup for 2013 are the Sport and Touring
models. The Accord Sport targets younger buyers with the addition of
18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights,10-way power driver's seats, a
decklid spoiler, dual chrome exhaust finishers, paddle shifters (on
CVT models), a stiffer tower strut bar and exclusive suspension and
steering tuning. Positioned between the Accord LX and Accord EX, the
Sport model is equipped with the 2.4-liter direct-injected
all-aluminum VTEC® engine paired to either a 6-speed manual or
Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The Sport model is value
priced with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $23,390
plus a destination and handling charge1.

The luxurious and technology-packed Accord Touring is equipped with a
powerful V-6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. Equipped with
Honda's first application of LED headlights and Adaptive Cruise
Control (ACC), the Accord Touring sedan is priced with a
manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $33,430 plus a
destination and handling charge1.

The 2013 Accord lineup is powered by a wide array of new Earth Dreams™
powertrains, which includes the first U.S. application of Honda's
next-generation 2.4-liter direct-injected VTEC 4-cylinder engine. The
2013 Accord Sedan and Coupe will also offer a more powerful and
efficient Earth Dreams VTEC V-6. Three transmissions are available,
including the first-ever application of a continuously variable
transmission (CVT) on 2.4-liter 4-cylinder models, a six-speed
automatic on V-6 models, and 6-speed manual transmissions on 2.4-liter
4-cylinder models and the 3.5-liter V-6 Coupe.

The 2013 Accord successfully balances fun-to-drive performance with
fuel efficiency. Accord Sedan 4-cylinder models paired to the CVT earn
an impressive 27/36/30 mpg2 city/highway/combined EPA fuel economy
ratings (an increase of 3/2/3 mpg compared to the previous model) and
the V-6 models achieve class-leading EPA fuel economy ratings of
21/34/25 city/highway/combined mpg2 (an increase of 1/4/1 compared to
the previous model) making it the most fuel-efficient gasoline-powered
vehicle in the V-6 midsize sedan class.

Other new Accord technologies include the first application of the
all-new cloud-based HondaLink™ system featuring Aha™, which lets
drivers put away their smartphones and still stay connected to the
people, music and social media they love. Also debuting on the 2013
Accord is Honda LaneWatch™ blind-spot display, which uses a camera
integrated with the passenger-side mirror and the vehicle's 8-inch
color display to provide for an enhanced view of the passenger-side
roadway. LaneWatch is standard equipment on EX and above versions of
the Sedan, and EX-L versions of the Coupe.

Celebrating 30 years of Accord production in the United States, the
all-new 2013 Honda represents the expanding capabilities of Honda in
North America. The Accord is produced by Honda of America Mfg. Inc. in
Marysville, Ohio, using domestic and globally sourced parts. Its
engines are produced at Honda plants in Anna, Ohio and the
transmissions are produced at Russells Point, Ohio, and in Tallapoosa,
Georgia. The Marysville Auto Plant earned a Silver Plant Quality Award
from J.D. Power and Associates in its 2012 Initial Quality Study.

The 2013 Honda Accord is covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile Limited
Vehicle Warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty,
