Honda has done a complete overhaul and is releasing the tenth generation of the popular sedan; the 2018 Honda Accord. The automaker has improved the sedan in every area. These changes are sure to make the Accord’s good reputation even better.

New Engines

The 2018 Honda Accord will offer different turbo powertrains to please different types of drivers. If your emphasis is strictly on affordability, the standard 1.5T turbo is for you. Honda uses this engine for the 178-horsepower Civic and the 190-horsepower CR-V. With the success of these fast-moving, yet fuel-efficient turbos, Honda is phasing out the V6. Instead it will offer the 2.0T turbo, which is currently making headlines as the powertrain for the 306-horsepower Civic Type R. This seriously competitive engine is expected to earn better gas mileage than the current V6. Daily drivers will appreciate the high horsepower and torque. In the updated Accord hybrid edition, another turbo is paired with an electric motor and hybrid battery pack.

Updated Transmissions

Honda is one of only two automakers to offer a manual transmission on a car this size. If you prefer a stick shift, you can enjoy a six-speed, three-pedal Accord. It is just one way that Honda makes the Accord more fun to drive. For this model year, conventional automatics are transplanted by continuously variable automatic transmissions. These gear-shifters aren’t limited by six or seven gears. Instead a wide variety of combinations keep the sedan moving. Honda CVTs have been shown to get the most out of a car’s power outlay. That will help 2018 Accord drivers maximize both competitiveness and fuel economy.

Curb Appeal

A new look is sure to grab your attention. As it is had done with the CR-V and other vehicles, Honda has changed the entire architecture of the Accord sedan. Longer, lower, and wider it offers advantages in handling as well as spaciousness. Already the car boasted one of the largest backseats in its segment. With improvements, there is more space at each position. The menu has been updated with more of the amenities that modern shoppers expect from their cars. A redesigned cockpit boasts a better infotainment system. There is less clutter on the dash, and yet there are more features overall. Safety, which has always taken a front seat in the Accord, continues to be a priority. Updated warning systems help drivers avoid crash situations. Available automation includes an autobrake to prevent a wreck or reduce crash severity.

The updated Honda Accord definitely works hard to snag a spot on your shopping list. Contact our dealership for more details on the all-new 2018 Honda Accord.
