Honda Motor will add standard electronic-device connectivity and safety features to its 2013 Accord, but the new technology won’t increase the car’s cost by much, the automaker says.

The 2013 Accord will cost an average of $300 more than the 2012 version costs, but all new Accord models will have a rearview camera, a Bluetooth HandsFree Link system for wireless calling and Pandora Internet radio streaming capability as standard features.

In addition, all Accord EX models will have Honda LaneWatch, which is a camera that monitors passenger-side blind spots and allows the driver to view the area on the center console display screen, says Honda spokesperson Chris Martin.

The Accord Sedan will be available at dealerships beginning Sept. 19 and will start at $21,680, and the Accord Coupe will be available at dealerships beginning Oct. 15 and will start at $23,350.
