Honda didn’t yet provide the price information for the new 2023 Accord. However, given the redesign and feature upgrades, the 2023 Accord will likely cost slightly more than the 2022 Accord.

According to MotorTrend, the 2023 Accord will likely offer upgraded versions of the three powertrains that are offered for the 2022 Accord. This includes a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine (192 hp), a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (252 hp), and a hybrid (212 hp). With the upgrades, you can expect to see a boost in horsepower for all of these powertrains. 

For the 2023 Accord Hybrid, the fuel economy will likely improve. The 2022 Accord Hybrid has a gas mileage of 48 city/47 highway mpg. 

Some of the Honda Accord’s midsize competitors, such as the Toyota Camry, offer a traction-enhancing all-wheel drive system. However, like the 2022 Accord, the 2023 Accord will probably only offer a front-wheel drive system.

As MotorTrend indicated, the 2023 Accord will likely incorporate some of the design features of the redesigned 2022 Civic. This includes thinner headlights, a “squared-off front end,” and a “more horizontal shoulder line.” Also, overall, many of the curved design elements from the 2022 Accord will be “straightened out” for the 2023 Accord.

The interior of the 2023 Accord will likely draw inspiration from the redesigned 2022 Civic as well. This includes a “classy full-width dashboard” and a “more squared-off” steering wheel hub, door handles, and switchgear. 

Like the 2022 Accord, the 2023 Accord will have a touchscreen that “floats above the dashboard.” However, instead of the 2022 Accord’s “half digital, half analog” gauge cluster, the 2023 Accord will probably have a fully digital version. Also, while the 2023 Accord will probably have a similar amount of passenger space as the 2022 Accord, the available cargo space in the trunk will likely increase.

As mentioned earlier, the release date of the redesigned 2023 Honda Accord midsize sedan will be in early 2023. Also, the 2023 Accord will likely cost slightly more than the 2022 Accord, which has a starting base price of $26,520 MSRP.
