Woodbridge, VA – October 13, 2012

Woodbridge, Va.-based dealership Hendrick Honda is currently carrying the all-new 2013 Honda Accord models.

According to Honda, the 2013 Accord is sleeker and more modern than its predecessor in each of its incarnations, and new standard technology sets it apart from earlier models.

“A Honda will always be a solid investment,” said Mike Sundquist, internet sales director at Hendrick Honda. “But the new tech features put the 2013 Accord more on par with luxury vehicles like the Mercedes C class and the Lexus ES 360.”

The i-MID system is the center of the new tech features included in the 2013 Accord. An eight-inch color screen on the front console, the i-MID displays everything from the driver’s current miles per gallon to incoming SMS messages from a connected mobile phone to the optional Satellite-Linked Navigation system. To encourage safe driving habits, most of the features of the i-MID system can be controlled using steering wheel-mounted buttons.

The 2013 models also include tech-savvy safety features. Standard features include dual zone climate control, central touch screen, and a rearview camera. Optional features include Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Honda LaneWatch, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

The 2013 Accord comes standard with EcoAssist technology. A green ECON button configures the car’s fuel-consuming systems to be more efficient with one touch. An additional touch will activate coaching bars on either side of the speedometer that turn green when the driver is driving efficiently.
