2012 Honda Accord Costs the Same, but All-New 2013 Accord Coming in the Spring

The current generation Honda Accord is entering its last model year, so Honda hasn’t really made any changes to the 2012 Accord. The base 2012 Accord LX starts at $22,150, which is the same as the 2011 model.

The only change to the 2012 Accord is the addition of a USB audio interface that is now standard on all models. The base Accord is powered by a 177-hp 2.4L four-cylinder, while EX models get a 190-hp 2.4L and the Accord V6 models are powered by a 271-hp 3.5L V6. The four-cylinder engines can be mated to either a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic, while the V6 is mated to a standard five-speed automatic transmission. The four-cylinder mated to a five-speed automatic gets 23/34 mpg and the V6 gets 20/30 mpg.

The all-new 2013 Honda Accord is expected to debut next spring. It’s reportedly going to be a little smaller than the current model. The new Accord will also get a new hybrid version that will be sold alongside the four-cylinder and V6 powered models.
