Honda has released details of the production version of the ninth generation Accord in both four-door sedan and two-door coupe body styles for the US market. Looking at history, this is the version that will most likely end up in Singapore as well. The styling of the new large sedan is clearly an evolution of the current generation but Honda would like you to believe that this is the “most sculpted” Accord ever.

According to Honda, the 2013 Accord sedan and coupe are noticeably shortened but smart packaging allows for increased passenger and cargo space in both models. During the presentation of the Coupe concept back in January, Honda said that the new Accord will be lighter than the current model with improved handling and driving characteristics.

This is the first Honda Accord that will feature a hybrid power plant. It links up a 2.0-litre four-cylinder gasoline engine to an electric Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) and a 120kW electric motor. The hybrid Accord can be driven in three different modes, namely all-electric, gasoline-electric and direct-drive. In all-electric mode, the Accord Plug-In Hybrid has a city driving range of approximately 16 to 24 km with a top speed of 100km/h.

If a hybrid power plant is not your cup of tea, there is a new 2.4-litre direct-injected (DI) engine delivering approximately 181bhp and 240Nm of torque. Like it or not, the automatic version will be linked to new Continuously Variable Transmission. The top-of-the range model features a 3.5-litre V6 I-VTEC with more power and torque than the current version. The V6 will be hooked up with a new 6-speed automatic gearbox instead of the 2.4-litre’s CVT.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
