Honda revealed the all-new 10th-generation Accord at an event held in Detroit, showing off its more stylish, sporty and premium styling and features. The 2018 Honda Accord is new from the ground up, with a lighter and more rigid body structure, new chassis design, new driver assist features and two all-new turbocharged engines.
“We are redefining the Honda Accord for a new generation of buyers by bringing something unexpected that challenges the idea of what a mainstream sedan can be,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president of the Automobile Division of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Even as we advance core values like great driving dynamics, safety performance and efficiency, the distinctive design of this all-new 2018 Honda Accord will help it appeal to both head and heart in equal measure.”
The new Accord’s design features a sporty and athletic appearance, with a longer wheelbase, lower height, wider body and shorter overall length compared to the previous model. This gives drivers a sportier seating position and provides rear passengers with more legroom.
A premium interior with soft-touch materials and a sophisticated design will impress all passengers. The new driver’s seat features available 12-way power adjustment, as well as heating and ventilation. The new 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen includes physical volume and tuning knobs for better usability, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
2018 Honda Accord buyers get the choice of either a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 192 hp or a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 252 hp. The 1.5-liter engine comes with a CVT, and the 2.0-liter engine features a 10-speed automatic. Sport models with both engines can be equipped with a six-speed manual transmission.
Honda is also making the full suite of Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies standard equipment on all 2018 Accord models. This includes features like Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation, Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow.
