Sleek, powerful, and electrified, the all-new 2023 Honda Accord will begin arriving at Canadian Honda dealerships in February, bringing new energy to the midsize sedan segment.

The 11th-generation Accord is available in three trim levels (one 1.5L turbo-powered and two hybrids), topped by the hybrid-powered Touring featuring Honda’s first integration of Google built-in.

The 1.5L turbocharged Accord EX has a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $37,000i (excluding the $1,780 destination charge). The hybrid-electric powered 2023 Accord Sport starts at $41,000.

The two hybrid-electric-powered trims feature Honda’s new, more powerful hybrid-electric system. With 247 lb.-ft of torque, they’re the most powerful Accord hybrids ever while achieving outstanding fuel economy ratings, with up to 5.0 L/100 KM in the city and 5.3 L/100 KM  combined. Positioned at the top of the Accord line-up, they will eventually represent about 50% of annual sales, a key step in Honda’s electrification strategy.

“The Honda Accord has long been considered one of the best mid-size sedans you can buy, I know that the all-new 11th-generation Accord, with its sophisticated design, refined and exhilarating driving experience, reliability, and exceptional value, will keep that reputation intact,” says Steve Hui Assistant Vice President Honda Canada. “Accord Sport and Touring Hybrid models offer performance, efficiency, and connectivity as we continue our strategy to quickly transition to an electrified future.”

The top-of-the-line hybrid-electric powered Accord Touring leads the way with advanced technology, featuring Honda’s first integration of Google built-in, which includes Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play with the latest apps and services for seamless on-the-go connectivity.

With Google Assistant, users can get things done while keeping their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. Talk to Google to easily call or text a friend, set reminders, or even change the temperature in the car. Users can also navigate to the next destination or look up what’s nearby. For example, Google Assistant enables users to set their destination in Google Maps using just their voice, with the route map then displayed in the instrument cluster.

Drivers can control their media by asking Google to skip to the next track or rewind a podcast using their favourite media apps with just their voice. Google Play enables users to download various 3rd-party apps for music, podcasts and audiobooks, just like they would on their smartphone.

The tech-savvy Accord Touring Hybrid also features a redesigned, customizable 6-inch head-up display, a 12.3-inch color center touchscreen (Honda’s largest ever), a 12-speaker Bose premium audio system with Bose Centerpoint technology, Qi-compatible 15W wireless smartphone charging, 5G Wi-Fi Hotspot capability, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats. Berlina Black 19-inch alloy wheels with machined face are also standard.

Also turbocharged, Accord EX is equipped with heated front seats, a one-touch power sliding moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an 8-way power driver’s seat with lumbar control. An upgraded 8-speaker audio system and Pewter Gray 17-inch alloy wheels are also standard.

For a sportier driving experience, the 2023 Accord Sport and Touring come standard with the new, more powerful two-motor hybrid system with an all-new and more refined 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder engine. Combined system output is 204 hpiv (a 3 hp increase), while traction-motor peak torque is 247 lb.-ft. of torque (up 15 lb.-ft.). Despite the increase in power and performance, hybrid-powered Sport and Touring are the most fuel-efficient sedans in the Honda line-up, with fuel economy up to 5.0 L/100 KM city and 5.3 L/100 KM combined.

Accord Sport features a leather-wrapped shift knob and heated steering wheel, and Berlina Black 19-inch alloy wheels with machined face. Sport and Touring hybrid models get Honda’s largest ever touchscreen, a 12.3-inch unit with a physical volume knob, wireless Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto compatibility.
