2023 Honda Accord Interior: Vs. other Hondas…
I just found a better photo of the new 2023 Honda Accord interior, showing a bit more. And posted other current Honda interior shots to compare. Read on if you dare. It’s a little bit sad…
First, the one that started it all, the 2022 Civic. The new Accord interior seems shockingly close to the smaller and cheaper Civic interior. Same general layout. Exact same switch gear and steering wheel. So far, the larger screen seems to be the only difference.
Then we have the HR-V, which is just a more rounded, softer version of the Civic. But again, everything else seems the same.
Finally, the new 2023 CR-V. With its own wider console, but basically the same dashboard and exact same controls and steering wheel.
I really think this is very disappointing for the Accord. And Honda in general. Designing basically the exact same interior for at least 4 of your models (I am not holding my breath about the new Pilot interior) is just lazy and cheap. This is cheapness everyone can see. All these cars on dealer floors with all the same interiors. I guess the closest thing to this is the current Mercedes models. So Honda isn’t the only one.
I guess most people don’t care?

Having the same dash and having GM build your EVs, who is the smart one? Honda is laughing all the way to the bank.
Disagree – If Honda designed the perfect dash, which I think they did, why not put it in all their cars? How many people are going to own 2 new different new Honda models to even know this? Its not like the exterior where people can compare.
Does this genericize the Honda interior? A bit yeah.
However look at the last gen of Audis and BMWs—very similar approach where the same infotainment, HVAC, and iDrive stack were consistent across most of the lineup.
I like this far more than past Honda interiors. No one can look at the last gen CR-V and think it’s a great interior… the drivers cluster in particular is a mess. And it definitely looks more current than the functional but frumpy Passport/Pilot/Ridgeline setups.
I think this is conservative but functional and just modern enough….it will age very well compared to others.
Why is the volume knob placed out of reach?
If it was good and well received for the Civic, why not for the others?
