The top vehicle in America has gotten even better! That’s right – The 2018 Honda Accord has finally been revealed. This vehicle has been completely redesigned and comes with amazing features that you’re sure to love. Here are a few things that you can expect to see on this updated favorite once it releases this fall.
The 2018 Honda Accord
The Accord’s credentials don’t lie. This Honda vehicle is hard to beat! Its affordability, efficiency, and stylish design have made the Honda Accord a consistent hit among buyers in the U.S. Plus, each model is equipped with great features that keep drivers coming back for more! So, with the bar raised so high from this vehicle’s past, what could Honda possibly do to take this amazing sedan to the next level?
Well first, notice the 2018 Honda Accord’s power. This vehicle is updated with three advanced powertrains. 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 Honda Accord Hybrid has evolved as well. It features a 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle engine with electric motors. This update comes in handy in a couple of significant ways: It helps keep money in buyers’ wallets and is less harmful to the environment than your average vehicle. With all three of these powertrain options available, Honda describes this new model as “the most fun-to-drive and fuel-efficient Accord yet.” So, be sure to get into one when you get the chance!
The Honda Accord’s Brand New Look
The Honda Accord has received more than a minor face lift. This new model has been completely redesigned! Take a look at the various trim levels in which the 2018 Accord 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 once the new Accord is released this fall, check out this vehicle’s exceptional exterior and interior.
The 2018 Honda Accord’s updates aren’t only surface level. Even from underneath the surface, great changes have been made. This vehicle 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 change in the Accord’s makeup reduces the weight of the vehicle by over 100 pounds and makes the vehicle more flexible.
The new Honda Accord has also been reshaped, giving it a sporty look that appeals to today’s buyers. 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.
Manufacturers made various efforts to reduce the Accord’s cabin noise. 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 better accommodate all of its potential passengers – whether they’re a reading bookworm or a sleeping baby.
The interior design of this vehicle takes the “sporty” feel to another level. As soon as you open its doors, you’ll notice the seamless marriage of style and functionality. From the sporty seat positioning to the added interior space, the 2018 Honda Accord has it all!
To take things a step further, 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 technology of this vehicle has been upgraded as well. 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. With all of these updates, the 2018 Honda Accord is the perfect vehicle for any driver!
