Honda has unveiled the all-new 2018 Honda Accord, which marks the introduction of the 10th generation of the popular midsize sedan. Honda calls the new Accord the most dramatically styled and most fun-to-drive Accord ever, which is good news, since the midsize sedan segment needs some new life.

The 2018 Honda Accord will be offered with three four-cylinder engine options

On the outside the new Accord borrows styling cues from the Civic, which gives it a sleeker exterior than the current model. From the front there are strong similarities between both sedans, but as you move towards the rear, you’ll notice a unique C-pillar and a rethought rear. The new Accord is lower, wider and slightly shorter than the current model. Also the cab has been pushed back to give it a more rear-wheel drive look and the wheelbase has been stretched to give it more interior room.

The 2018 Honda Accord will feature three powertrains, but you’ll notice one is gone – a V6. That’s right, just like almost every other midsize sedan in the segment, buyers will now only be able to choose four-cylinder engines. The base Accord will be powered by the same turbocharged 1.5L as the Civic and CR-V, which generates 192-hp and 192 lb-ft. of torque. The 1.5L four-cylinder can be mated to either a CVT or a six-speed manual. If you want more power, the top version is powered by the same 2.0L engine as the Civic Type R, but it’s been detuned to generate 252-hp and 273 lb-ft. The 2.0L can be mated to either a ten-speed automatic or six-speed manual.

The 2.0L hybrid system features Honda’s latest two-motor hybrid powertrain. The system features greater than 40 percent thermal efficiency, the highest for any mass-produced Honda engine, paired with Honda-developed electric motors that are the first drive motors in the world to use magnets containing no heavy rare-earth metals.

Inside the 2018 Accord’s interior will have a more premium feel with a soft touch instrument panel, a sportier steering wheel and a new 8-inch display audio touchscreen.

Honda Sensing will be standard on every Accord, which includes Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Departure Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and new Traffic Sign Recognition.

    I love that the pictures mostly show the upper trim-level wheels and the lower trim ones are hideous! Ruined the whole car with those– Honda will never learn. At least they added knobs for radio and climate control unlike the car-wreck-accident-inducing infotainment system in the new Civics. I convinced my parents to buy a 2016 Civic and they utterly HATE the whole infotainment/climate control features.

  • I think car companies are overdoing it with tail lights. Why so complicated? Just like they did with grilles a few years ago.
