The 2023 Honda Accord Sport will try once again to conquer a midsize sedan segment. This model is one of the best-looking sedans in the class. It features attractive styling and some of Honda Civic Type R’s DNA. The upcoming sedan will generally receive more sporty lines and a much better interior from available information.
We also expect it to borrow the same engine from our favorite sports cars. Under the hood of the Accord Sport version is the same mill found in the Honda Civic Type R. This engine consists of a 2.0-liter turbocharged mill that delivers an excellent performance of 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.
2023 Honda Accord Sport Exterior
The forthcoming 2023 Honda Accord Sport will finally take some elements from the well-known sports model Honda Type R. Besides a wider grille and all-LED front lighting, the Sport model will also come with Sonic Gray Pearl paint taken from the Civic Hatchback. It looks snazzy and is much more eye-catchy.
Also, the manufacturer will make some changes on the side profile, and the Sports model features stylish wheels. On the back, this sedan looks more attractive than the outgoing model. It features sharper lines and the new LED taillights with much better graphics.
The new sedan`s cabin is tremendously spacious, with enough room to fit five passengers. This model also has the segment-largest 16.7-cubic-foot trunk. All models come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while wireless connectivity is included on the EX, Sport, and Touring trims. However, Wireless charging and rear-seat USB charging ports are available as well but only to those who chose higher-end trims. Interestingly, when you activate Sport mode, the gauge cluster’s LED accents glow red, like on many models with this mode.
On the other hand, the forthcoming model achieves excellent safety scores from the IIHS and NHTSA. It combines the effect of adaptive cruise control, lane centering, and blind-spot monitoring.

The Honda Accord Sport is a sedan that is powered by the same engine as the Honda Civic Type R. This model uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged mill that delivers 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission handles pretty smooth shifting.
According to Honda, this model can hit 60 mph in 5.5 seconds, which is slower than the Civic Type R. Along with this engine, we should also expect a smaller 1,5 liter and a hybrid powertrain as well. This edition sends power to FWD as the regular model, while AWD is still optionally.
Release Date and Price
The new Honda Accord Sport is a very important Honda member and is nearly as quickly as the Civic Type R. Also, it’s one of the most selling models that hold its top spot in midsize sedan rankings thanks to its sporty design taken from the Type R’s model.
