Introducing the 2018 Honda Accord!
For the last few years, sedans have taken a back seat to the crossovers and SUVs on the market. Many consumers have been opting for larger vehicles with more room for passengers and cargo. With the release of the 2018 Honda Accord, however, the newly redesigned sedan is likely to set new standards in the midsize car group. From its sleek design to its range of new engines, the Accord is about to turn some heads.
For 2018, Honda wanted to create a sedan that was visually appealing and aerodynamic, with a roomy interior. The exterior possesses LED headlights and taillights, prominent front fenders, lower body sculpting, and larger aluminum wheels on the touring models, which make the Accord impressive, without being over the top. Though slightly shorter in length than the older models, the 2018 Accord has a larger trunk and more room in the back seat. The sloping roofline narrows to the trunk, which has grown 16.7 cubic feet, making it the largest in its class.
Despite the car's shorter length, the rear seat room is spacious. The comfortable front seat is about the same as the outgoing model but has improved armrests and an available 12-way power adjustment for the driver's seat. Heating and ventilation are available on both front seats, while options for rear seat heaters warm the back. Honda has also created an upscale appearance in the cabin's interior, the black dash, carpets, and lower cabin panels.
The Accord boasts improved crash-energy absorption, adaptive cruise control with low-speed following capability, a forward collision warning system with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane keeping assist, plus traffic sign recognition capability. The Accord also has a multi-angle reversing camera, as well as additional safety related enhancements based on trim level.
The new infotainment system includes an 8-inch touchscreen that works like a Smartphone and Bluetooth pairing with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A 4G LTE WiFi hotspot is also available, along with wireless Smartphone charging to keep you connected at all times.
Offered with a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, or a hybrid drivetrain, you will need to choose which to purchase for your driving pleasure. Set to arrive in dealerships during October, three model series will be available with the existing trim options LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L with navigation, and Touring. The hybrid models will go on sale in early 2018.
