The Honda Accord 2023 will debut in November, but Honda has meanwhile released a teaser of the redesigned midsize sedan.

Honda was short on details, including the actual reveal date, in its brief press release, but it confirmed a 12.3-inch touchscreen, Google’s built-in connectivity (a first for the brand) and “a more responsive and fun to drive hybrid powerplant “.

The teaser images show the styling appearing influenced by the recently redesigned Civic, particularly in the taillights, with some of the 2023 CR-V in the grille. Honda also took a look at that new touchscreen, which is much larger than the 8.0-inch screen of the current Accord generation and more in line with offerings from other automakers.

The 2023 Accord represents the 11th generation of the model, replacing a version that dates back to the 2018 model year. The Accord has remained a benchmark for midsize sedans, although it is arguably less important to the bottom line Honda now that crossovers are the cash cows of the auto industry.

Powertrain details will have to wait until the November 2023 Agreement is revealed, but don’t bet on a return of the manual gearbox. Honda shut down after the 2020 model year.

One question is how much Honda intends to highlight the new Accord Hybrid. The automaker previously said it planned to increase the model mix of the 2023 CR-V to 50% of hybrid sales as part of an effort to use hybrids as a gateway for electric cars, which will begin to arrive in earnest with the Prologue 2024 SUV. Honda is also planning a new Civic Hybrid to replace the Insight, so hybrids will be an important part of the automaker’s plans for the future.
