2013 AccordFeature Changes on the 2013 Accord

Redesigned in 2013, the new Accord has many upgraded features such as the popular hill start assist. One of the biggest differences with the redesign can be found at the gas station. The 2013 4-cylinder model can get between 28 and 30mpg, with the exact mpg adjusting based on the transmission you select. This is up to three miles more per gallon than the 2012 Accord, which came in at 27mpg.

Likewise the V-6 went from 24mpg to 25mpg. If you are an avid commuter or constantly driving the kids around, this can equal a significant savings at the pump. Meanwhile if you are interested in the V-6, the 2013 model comes with a 6-speed instead of a 5-speed automatic transmission, increasing its’ horsepower.
