Interior and Exterior

We might be quite surprising to see the new Accord exterior styling due to it looks bit alike the first 1970’s Honda models. The sedan is shaped in more muscular body streamline and improved front grill integrated with the trapezoid LED headlights. Additionally, we could see the daytime driving lights as well as fog lights with two large air circulation system in around the front bumper to help cooling down the engine and the HVAC system. In its back end, there upgrades the LED taillights and air vent system. Overall, the back outlook of the sedan looks bit higher due to the rooftop surface and line stretched from the front and back wheels.

For the interior, the auto designer has prepared to equip the car with new infotainment system. However, some components such as the touch screen display and audio speakers are still retained as its previous model. The cabin will be more spacious quite convenient for five passengers and enhanced in all leather touches for the highest model. High-end quality materials like Chestnut wood and fabrics might be given to the inside. Not left, for the security system the company will supplement the 2018 Honda Accord with active lane keeping, forward collision warning, automatic braking system and adaptive cruise control.

Under the hood, the all trims of Accord generation are generally engaged with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and built up in a front wheel drive. Along with 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, the engine could deliver the output at around 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque.

Another powertrain will be a 3.5-liter V6 engine with a 6-speed automatic transmission capable to generate the output of 278 horsepower. The new 2018 Honda Accord is likely more efficient to drive at 28 mpg in highway and 34 mpg in city with the hybrid unit. Additionally, there will be deactivation room where cylinders are idled as the gas is low.
