The ninth generation Accord adds significant powertrain improvements including Honda's first application of plug-in hybrid technology. The Accord is offered in several trim levels with either a fuel-efficient four-cylinder or V6 engine. Transmission choices now include six speed transmissions and a fuel-efficient CVT on four-cylinder models. All trim levels include common power equipment. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants join the lineup in mid-2013 as 2014 models.
