Honda has released its first teaser shot of the new Accord, and promised “improved hybrid performance,” ahead of the sedan’s full-reveal next month.

The 11th-generation Accord, a Honda staple that’s been in production pretty much constantly since 1976, brings a new, Prologue-esque design to the plate for 2023, with a wider hexagonal grille and sleek LED headlights at the front previewed via Honda’s official images. The rear, meanwhile, is dominated by the almost full-width tail lamps, which are split only by the Honda logo.

Save an assurance that the Accord will feature “a more responsive and fun-to-drive hybrid powertrain,” no further details have been released regarding the drivetrain. It’s speculated Honda could run with the 143 hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder that powers the current generation Accord, albeit with a more powerful electric motor than the current 181 hp example. Alternatively, the 2023MY Accord may adopt the more intricately-packaged hybrid powertrain powering Honda’s new CR-V SUV, the latter of which is said to offer a broader torque curve and more responsive acceleration.

Honda has confirmed though that the new sedan the Japanese marque’s first model to feature “seamless on-the-go connectivity” via Google Play, and will also boast a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, Honda’s largest example to-date, at the heart of an all-new cabin.
