A year ahead, the 2018 Honda Accord is expected to keep a strong place among the four-door sedan options on the market. The United States customers have well received it for almost three decades. The trend for the following year is to find a more stylized car with sportive details. The new design breathes modernity and screams for a change in the Honda Accord line. However, some might think that the Accord is following the steps of the Civic regarding interior design. Let’s move on to go deep into the details of the new Honda Accord 2018.
2018 Honda Accord redesign
The exterior of the 2018 Honda Accord has not been revealed officially yet to the public. So far, the information comes from driving tests performed recently, in which some photo shooters were able to take a glimpse at the new car. The silhouette shows a car that is substantially different from the previous model. First of all, it is the changes in the rear window, which is now more oblique than other Accords. It gives the car a new look with audacious personality for intrepid drivers. The Accord has been conservative for a while. The improvement of processes and sharing of production lines has obliged designers to think of reinventing the design to increase efficiency.
The grille on the 2018 Accord is looking smaller, as well as the trunk. That can lead to a lack of space for luggage and general transportation. Another part that shirked is the front fascia’s lights. The conserved characteristics from the previous version of Honda Accord are the jagged edges of the design. It is manufactured nine different colors. The most popular are red, white, black and silver. It will be available in five trim levels: LX-S, EX, EX-L, EX-L V6, Touring and Sport.
The interior of the brand new Honda Accord 2018 is expected to be entirely changed compared to the earlier version. The new model seems to have more room inside, particularly for the front seats. Re-design is similar to other Honda models, and it features all the amenities of modern cars. All the details have been well thought to remain valid in today’s life. It has a convenient charging area for phones that works with wireless technology. That way you don’t need to carry annoying cables. The engine start button makes operation easier. You don’t need to place the key, only hold it inside. For men, it is convenient because you can have the key in your pocket all the time and you’ll never forget it inside. Women can have it in a purse, and the automatic system will detect it when you are inside. The convenient dual displays have an intuitive user interface. It is available to manipulate easily and shows helpful information. The upper screen is meant to show the GPS navigational system, rear camera, and other relevant information. It is located in such a way that the driver can see it effortlessly while paying attention to the road.
It has all possible amenities, including leather seats, wooden accents, and adjustable seats. All seat positions are driven by motors, which makes control as easy as the touch of a button. The driver seat is the most important, and so are the controls. You can adjust it to 10 different positions, moving it to the front, back and even up and down. That way you can create the perfect environment for an incredible drive. The car’s software is compatible with mobile devices. Honda has released special music and synchronization in general. In the future, more app releases are expected to let you get control of your vehicle through an app.
New Honda Accord 2018 specs
The engine is expected to have important changes this time. Not just, it is anticipated that the new Honda Accord 2018 will have four cylinders on its core option. It is foreseen that other upgrades include a turbo motor (with six cylinders for added power), and a hybrid option to go green. The basic model should have a change in the gas capacity, replacing the 2.4-liter base engine featured today for a more efficient 2.5 liter and turbocharged option. The expected result is up to 300 HP of power to take you anywhere, with a torque of 300 lb. per feet. We expect that standard 3.6-liter V6 engine will be available in Touring and EX-L V6 models. The hybrid model will have many things in common with the 2017 Accord version. It will be able to print up to 212 HP to your driving in a combo of electric motor plus the traditional internal combustion model with four cylinders.
Transmission will be available in three different options. 6-speed manual gearbox will be available with LX, Sport and EX models, but there will be available optional CVT automatic transmission that is standard in EX-L model. Models with V6 powerplant (EX-L and Touring) will come equipped only with 6-speed automatic transmission with Sport Mode. The overall fuel economy for the 2018 Honda Accord should be between 3 to 4 gallons per every 100 miles, just as it is on previous models. Hybrid options will be even cheaper for that matter.
