You may already know that the 2018 Honda Accord is coming to market this year with better performance, a new interior and exterior design, and more interior features. We can guarantee you’ll want to stick around as we go over a few of the main changes coming this year and give you a peek at the new design.
First of all, the main reason for the redesign comes from Honda wanting to change things up to appeal to the newest generation of buyers by implementing a newer design. The new 2018 Honda Accord takes a step back and works off exterior fundamentals more similar to the classic Accord, a sporty and athletic vehicle. Changes that make this possible includes a longer wheelbase, lower overall height, wider body, wider wheel tracks, and shortened overall length.
Aside from exterior styling, the 2018 Honda Accord also introduces more powerful engines. The first is a 1.5L 16-valve DOHC with dual VTC and 192 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque.
Those seeking more power should look toward the 2.0L turbocharged engine with 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Soon to follow these gas-powered engines will be a 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid with a 2.0L two-motor system.
The 2018 model brings changes to interior design and feature availability. A few of the new technology features include a panoramic forward view, soft-touch instrument panel, a 12-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, a 6-inch head-up display, and standard Honda Sensing for all trims.
