Earlier this month Honda announced that the all-new 2018 Accord would start at $24,445. Now the 2018 Honda Accord has arrived at dealerships nationwide, just in time to battle the new Toyota Camry.
If you haven’t caught the news, the 2018 Accord has been completely revamped as Honda tries to boost sales in a segment that has been declining. The 2018 Accord is now only offered as a sedan and buyers can choose from three engine options. The base engine is a turbocharged 1.5L with 192 horsepower, while a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder is available with 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft. of torque. The Accord Hybrid will also return offering the third powertrain option in early 2018.
The 1.5L is rated at 30/38 mpg with the CVT or 26/35 mpg with the six-speed automatic transmission. Honda hasn’t announced the MPG specs for the 2.0L engine, but it won’t go on sale until next month.
The 2018 Honda Accord comes standard with LED headlight and taillights, dual-zone climate control, a 7-inch customizable digital driver’s meter and the full suite of Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies including new Traffic Sign Recognition.
Pricing for the 2018 Honda Accord 1.5T ranges from $24,445 for the base LX to $34,675 for the top Touring trim level with the destination fees included.
