The 2018 Honda Accord has been revealed! This vehicle is packed with amazing features that you’re sure to love. Check out this overview of the features you can expect to see on this updated favorite once it releases this fall.
The 2018 Honda Accord
Its credentials don’t lie. The Honda Accord is hard to beat! This vehicle is a consistent hit among buyers, as it is known to be affordable and efficient with a stylish design. Plus, each model is equipped with great features that keep drivers coming back for more! So, what could Honda possibly do to take this amazing sedan to the next level?
Notice the 2018 Honda Accord’s power. This vehicle is updated with three advanced powertrains that buyers should definitely make note of. The 2018 model ditches the optional 3.5-liter V6 engine and picks up two turbocharged inline-four-cylinders instead: a 1.5-liter turbo engine and a 20-liter turbo engine.
The 1.5-turbo is rated to reach 192 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, the 2.0-liter turbo produces 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Both of these new engines provide great power, quick spooling, and high efficiency.
The Hybrid has evolved as well. It features a 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle engine with electric motors. This update is beneficial to buyers’ wallets, as well as to the environment. With all three of these powertrain options available, Honda describes this new model as “the most fun-to-drive and fuel-efficient Accord yet.”
The Honda Accord Has a Brand New Look
The 2018 Honda Accord has been completely redesigned. First, let’s look at the various trim levels in which this new model is available:
The 1.5-liter engine comes in six different trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi, and Touring.
The 2.0-liter turbo engine is available in four trims: Sport, EX-L, EX-L Navi, and Touring.
The Hybrid comes in five available trims: Base, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi, and Touring.
Now that you know which trims to choose from, notice this vehicle’s exterior and interior.
Even from underneath the surface, great changes have been made. The 2018 Honda Accord is said to use more ultra-high-strength steel than any of its predecessors. In fact, the structure incorporates about 29% more of this material. This reduces the weight of the vehicle by over 100 pounds and makes the vehicle more flexible.
The 2018 Honda Accord has also been reshaped, giving it a sporty look that buyers of today love. It now has a long, sloping backlight and short edges on the rear door windows, as well as a full-length line that runs from the vehicle’s stem to its stern. The wheelbase has increased by 2.2 inches. Additionally, there has been a slight decrease in length and height of the vehicle, and an increase in its width.
There were many efforts to reduce noise while manufacturing the new Honda Accord. This vehicle now features structural adhesives, underbody covers, acoustic laminated windshield glass, and front and rear engine-compartment insulators. Now, the Accord is quiet enough to accommodate the traveling passengers of any growing family.
The interior design of this vehicle takes the “sporty” feel up a notch. Manufacturers did a great job of coupling style and design with functionality. From the sporty seat positioning to the added interior space, the 2018 Honda Accord has it all!
The new Accord’s seats move inward. This provides more head, shoulder, and hip room for front seat riders- as well as inches of additional legroom for backseat passengers. The seats also have taller bolsters and variable firmness padding, providing added comfort.
The cabin tech has also been upgraded. It features an 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen with knobs for tuning and volume. Plus, this vehicle comes packed with lots of standard intelligence and premium features that have never been showcased on any other Honda vehicle before! Buyers of the new Honda Accord will automatically have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an updated HondaLink telematics system, and Honda Sensing.
