Honda has recently increased the price of the 2013 version of the Accord sedan and the price hike was also extended towards the other car models that are included on the current lineup.

Based on the information provided by company, the 2013 Honda Accord sedan will be sold at a starting price of $22,470 including the destination charge of $790. The vehicle’s current starting price reflects a $200 increase over the previous year’s model.

Due to the slight increase in the vehicle’s price, a lot of car experts firmly believe that the 2013 Honda Accord might have received a number of additional features that were not offered in its predecessor.

Just like the sedan version, the 2013 Honda Accord Touring has also obtained a slight increase in price. This vehicle is currently sold at a starting price of $34,220 including the shipping charges. Fortunately, the price increase in the Accord Touring has allowed the vehicle to avail of some of the latest technology that Honda is trying to use in some of its upcoming vehicle models. This includes the adaptive cruise control and the first headlights made of LED that Honda has decided to use.

The 2013 Honda Accord Sport which is also considered as the newest member of the lineup was priced at $24,180 including the charges for shipping. This model is powered by a 2.4-liter direct-injected 4-cylinder engine mated to either a 6-speed manual transmission or to a CVT which is an acronym for the continuously variable transmission.

Aside from its powerful engine, the 2013 Honda Accord Sport is also loaded with a long list of standard features such as the 18-inch alloy wheels, deck lid spoiler, 10-way seat for the driver, foglights, paddle shifters for the models with the CVT. Aside from those, the Sport model is also equipped with the dual exhaust finishers, stiffer strut bar, and the exclusively designed steering as well as the steering tuning.

Given its current starting price, the 2013 Honda Accord is cheaper compared to some of its competitors in the segment such as the 2012 Toyota Camry, 2013 Ford Fusion, and the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu. The Camry which is currently sold at a starting price of $22, 850 including the destination charge of $795 is $380 cheaper than the latest version of the Accord.

Although the 2013 Honda Accord is cheaper compared to some of its competitors that were produced by the US-based car makers, this model is still sold at an expensive price as opposed to its Korean rivals such as the 2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS and the 2013 Kia Optima LX.
