The tech-rich 2023 Honda Accord midsize sedan enters a new generation, taking the bold initiative of moving hybrid power away from the sidelines to put it front and center. Pricing starts at $27,295.
Following on from a track record of being the class leader, the 2023 Accord takes the unprecedented step of making its hybrid variants the most desirable.
Where car companies have tended to offer V6 engines or more powerful turbocharged 4-cylinder units in the higher trims of their midsize sedans, Honda has decided to source that extra muscle from electric motors. So, the top four 2023 Accord variants have a hybrid drivetrain.
There was a hybrid version of the previous generation, but Honda has made this the banner drivetrain. The company reckons that hybrids will account for about half of all new Accord sales.
The Accord has been a true success story for Honda. Kelley Blue Book has given it plenty of awards, like last year’s Best Buy among midsize sedans, as well as 2021, 2020, 2019, and so on. There’s also the 2022 Best 5-year Cost to Own and Best Resale Value awards for the class. The new Accord sedan looks on course to continue these winning ways.
