Featuring the award-winning Honda Earth Dreams Technology powertrains, the 2014 Accord lineup includes a direct injected 4-cylinder engine and a powerful and fuel-efficient V-6. A sporty CVT (4-cylinder models only) and a 6-speed manual transmission are also available.
A new 2-motor Accord Hybrid, built with the rest of the Accord lineup in a Honda plant in Marysville, Ohio, also debuts for 2014.
Launched in fall 2012, Accord was the most popular midsize passenger car in America for the first six months of 2013, based on sales to individual car buyers, according to new vehicle registration data from R.L. Polk.
The all-new 2013 Accord has earned a host of awards for setting new benchmarks for fuel efficiency, fun-to-drive performance, customer-friendly connectivity, advanced safety features and overall value.
Starting at $21,955, the 2014 Honda Accord Sedan, and the Coupe, with prices starting at $23,625, offer a great value for drivers.
The 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid Sedan, with prices starting at $39,780, is also available.
The 2013 Accord has received numerous accolades, including an unprecedented 27th Car and Driver "10 Best" title for the model, as well as an Automobile Magazine All-Star award, a Best Family Car award from Parenting magazine and Edmunds.com, and Best New Sedan Under $25,000 status from KBB.com.
Using the highest amount of high-strength steel in the history of the model, the Accord Sedan and Coupe bodies combine sophisticated and athletic styling with high-efficiency safety protection and remarkable aerodynamic streamlining. Extensive use of under-covers improve the aerodynamics for increased fuel efficiency, while other advances include available LED headlights, DRLs and brake lights, and mirror-mounted turn signals.
Innovative Earth Dreams Technology powertrains include Honda's next-generation 2.4-liter, direct-injected 4-cylinder engine with continuously variable transmission or 6-speed manual transmission. The 2014 Accord Sedan and Coupe are also available with a powerful and efficient V-6 mated to 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual (Coupe only) transmission.
The Accord Plug-in Hybrid Sedan and new Accord Hybrid Sedan both use an all-new two-motor hybrid system paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel efficiency is the best ever for Accord in the EPA Midsize class, with 4-cylinder models earning a 36 mpg highway EPA rating and V-6 models garnering a 34 mpg highway EPA rating.
The Accord interior provides a level of luxury and craftsmanship never before seen in the Accord.
Available in Black, Gray and Ivory colors schemes, in cloth or leather, the Accord interior combines welcoming comfort with an impressive range of available technologies. New for 2014 is a more premium cloth seat fabric on the Accord LX.
A new smarter auto-dimming rear-view mirror no longer requires an on/off switch. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, rearview camera, 8-inch (diagonal) "intelligent" Multi-Information Display (i-MID), Bluetooth HandsFreeLink phone interface, Pandora internet radio interface and an SMS text messaging feature.
The Accord Sedan and Coupe offer the greatest range of active and passive safety and driver assistive features in Honda history. Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) is standard on all Accord models, and available new technologies include Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). The Accord's Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) II body structure, standard on all models, helps improve frontal crash safety performance. This allows the Accord to be one of few midsize offerings to excel in the rigorous Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) small-overlap frontal barrier crash test.
