2018 Honda Accord

Given the Honda Accord’s standing as an incredibly popular midsize sedan, you may expect Honda to stick with its winning formula and avoid making waves. But the 2018 Honda Accord debut reveals a daring new direction for this perennial favorite, and the automotive world is brimming with excitement. Not only can drivers expect a fresher look and new technology, but the new powertrain lineup will really get the adrenaline pumping. Learn all about the newest features, and then head to Jeffrey Honda to see our current Honda Accord inventory in person!

Design

For its tenth generation, Honda decided to revitalize the look and feel of the Honda Accord. This new model is lighter, sportier, and fresher than the Honda Accord of the past. Between its longer wheelbase and lower height, this sedan is sleeker than ever before. Add in the bolder front fascia and lowered hood, and you’ve got an athlete that’s ready to hit the roads. The gorgeous looks of the 2018 Honda Accord are not just for show. The chassis is built with ultra-high-strength steel, which results in a lighter and more rigid body. A new Macpherson strut front suspension is paired with the new chassis to enhance handling, so drivers enjoy a smoother ride.

Performance

While most vehicle generations see a new engine or two, Honda defied all expectations by introducing three different powertrain options. Here is a sneak peek at the specs you can expect:

  • A 1.5L turbo engine with direct-injection technology produces 192 hp, which bests the previous 2.4L engine by 7 hp.
  • A 2.0L turbo option replaces the previous V6 offering to bring new athletic finesse to the lineup. This 252-hp engine is paired with the brand new 10-speed automatic in the Sport trim.
  • A 2.0L Atkinson cycle hybrid engine offers an efficient way to power your commute. The hybrid Accord also features a redesign, maximizing trunk space by moving the battery pack under the floor.
