Towing Capacity and Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Honda Accord Coupe and CVT Transmission


What is the towing capacity of an 2013 Honda Accord coupe with 4 cylinder engine and VCT transmission? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

According to the online copy of your owner's manual, your 2013 Honda Accord Coupe has a maximum total trailer weight limit of 1,000 lbs. This includes the weight of the trailer, cargo, and everything inside or loaded on top of it.

While CVT (continuous variable transmission) vehicles aren't ideal for trailer towing, as long as you adhere to the limits outlined in your owner's manual, you shouldn't have any problems. I suggest confirming this information on your hard copy of the owner's manual as well.

Below are my recommendations for a complete towing package for your 2013 Accord Coupe:

Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver - 1-1/4" # C11681

Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118586 (for LED taillights) or # 118596 (incandescent taillights)

Curt Euro Ballmount # C45571 (1-7/8 inch ball) or # C45572 (2 inch ball)

Curt Pin and Clip - 1/2" Diameter # F-4
