2018 Honda Accord and Civic Type R Voted ‘2018 Automobile All-Stars’
Two of Honda’s iconic vehicles have been named ‘2018 All-Stars*’ by Automobile magazine! The 2018 Honda Accord and 2018 Honda Civic Type R both received this distinction, giving Honda the most models on this year’s list. To compete for the All-Star honor, a vehicle has to be all-new, heavily revised, or have newly significant variants on sale within 12 months of All-Star testing. Here are a few of the ways that these two awesome cars stand out from the crowd!
The 2018 Honda Accord is all-new and completely redesigned from the ground up. It features a lighter, more rigid body structure, along with an advanced new chassis design. It has several new and innovative technologies that make it stand out and exceed expectations. For example, the Accord’s new drivetrain features a 10-speed automatic transmission: the world’s first for a front-drive car. The two drivetrain options include all-new, high-torque VTEC Turbo engines for the first time on any Accord. These new powertrain and chassis improvements give the Accord outstanding power, handling, and driving dynamics.
These All-Star cars were designed with no compromises, and it shows. The 2018 Honda Accord offers incredible value to its packages, with a host of new standard safety, driver-assistive, and connected-car technologies. Its overall design is sleek and athletic, with a sophisticated cabin that offers top-tier space and comfort. The quality materials inside create a welcoming, comfortable space to pass mile after mile. Plus, the 2018 Honda Accord now includes the Honda Sensing safety suite as standard equipment. This comprehensive technology suite gives you tons of active safety and driver-assist features, from Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow to all-new Traffic Sign Recognition.
Meanwhile, the 2018 Honda Civic Type R continues to steal the show. The Type R was the only unanimous All-Star choice over at Automobile magazine, earning tons of excitement and praise. From the 306-horsepower engine to the specially developed seats, the Type R offers incredible performance. The steering wheel and pedals are expertly placed for easy use and quick shifts. The six-speed manual transmission is snappy and smooth, providing seamless gear changes and a thrilling connection to the car. This hot hatch has lots of innovative engineering, like its dual-axis strut suspension up front, which gives you tons of punchy power with no discernible torque steer.
It also offers superb daily usability. The 2018 Honda Civic Type R comes with multiple drive settings, including an everyday driving mode. This mode softens the suspension and throttle response, which tames the Type R for daily driving. Inside the cabin, there are tons of thoughtful touches that appeal to a driver during a commute, not just on the track. The supportive and stylish seats are also comfortable for hours on end during rush hour or a long drive. Nimble handling means that the Civic Type R is easy to park and maneuver in dense urban areas, as well. Plus, this hatchback offers all the utility of its shape, with a spacious interior and tons of easily-accessed cargo space.
According to Mike Floyd, Automobile Editor-in-Chief, “To receive two All-Star nods in one year speaks to how special we think Honda’s recent offerings have been. The new 10th-generation Accord is a meticulously engineered sedan with soul, especially in Sport trim, and the Civic Type R is arguably the greatest performance car for the money available today. From family haulers to hauling butt, Honda continues to blow us – and the competition – away.” These two 2018 Honda models both deserve their All-Star status! The 2018 Honda Accord and 2018 Honda Civic Type R are two excellent examples of Honda’s innovative engineering and design.
