There’s more to 2018 Honda Accord than meets the eye.


With an injection of 10th generation Civic turbocharged edginess, and a dash of Odyssey advanced connectivity, 2018 Honda Accord punctuates Honda’s design direction for the next decade. From the “C” shaped tail lights to the dynamic “3-D” grill design, a slightly lower, wider, and perhaps more sinister looking Accord captivates the onlooker. It looks quick resting in park, thanks to a very aggressive stance, swept-back greenhouse, lowered tapered roofline, dynamic hood to grill integration, and organic to hard chine side profile.

Honda stays true to the concept teaser in presenting the most dynamic Accord in history

As with last month's reveal of the reinvented 2018 Toyota Camry, Accord comes to the midsize sedan segment swinging -- with a refined, sportiness, historically reserved for premium brand offerings. Coupe-like in its body language, 2018 Accord takes design cues from Acura’s Precision Concept Car, the 2017 Honda Civic, and the redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey minivan. Honda Accord D.N.A. is preserved, yet magnified -- signalling yet another design home run for Honda -- with a slightly roomier interior, trunk, and captivating visual appeal.

"2 new turbocharged engines, one, the most powerful Accord to date"

Most powerful 4 cylinder, not most powerful Accord which is the V 6 if you by powerful mean horsepower. Torque, however is the highest ever on an Accord and peak torque is available from 1500 to 4000 rpm. With the 10 speed and lighter weight we should expect the new Accord to perform better than the V 6 despite 26 less horsepower.

Welcome Pierre. Simply quoting Honda on the power statement. After driving the 10th generation Civic Turbo and the CR-V, the on demand torque, more than makes up for any horsepower deficiency. This is more about how the turbo torque band works in concert with the CVT or 10-speed transmission. Drive one, you will be impressed.
