2018 Honda Accord Gets New Tech
The all-new 2018 Honda Accord is here, and just about every aspect of it is better than ever before. The latest Accord remodel shook things up, giving the new sedan more efficiency, higher performance, and better technology. As a result, the tenth-generation Accord is chock-full of standard and available technology. From infotainment and safety to the high-performance drivetrain, there are many new features here to make your drive better.
New technology makes the 2018 Honda Accord models faster and more powerful than ever. This is the first model year Accord equipped with boosted engines. It offers a 1.5L or 2.0L turbocharged engine to make the lower, lighter, wider 2018 Accord zoom. Starting as a later-model release option later this year, the Accord will offer the 2.0L engine paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. In the meantime, many first drive reviews make it clear that the boosted 1.5L engine is plenty fast.
Now, all 2018 Honda Accord models include the complete Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assist features. While this suite was previously available on many trims and standard on higher levels, Honda Sensing is now standard across the 2018 Accord lineup. The Honda Sensing suite includes mitigation systems for forward collision braking and road departure to help prevent an accident. It also gives you a warning if you start drifting across lanes, and the multi-angle rearview camera has dynamic guidelines. It also helps you stay aware of your surroundings with additional optional features like blind spot information, rear cross traffic monitor, and a driver awareness monitor. Traffic Sign Recognition technology also debuts this year!
The all-new model also boasts high-tech advancements to the interior. Honda reworked the infotainment center for the 2018 model year, and the Accord now features the new Honda Connect system. A seven-inch screen is standard, although you can upgrade to an eight-inch on higher trim levels. There are intuitive physical controls as well as a sharp, responsive touch inputs. The new system has a clean, organized menu for quickly reaching your favorite apps. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto both come standard on the EX trim and above. The top-of-the-line Touring trim also adds wireless phone charging, a 10-speaker audio system, a head-up display, and the next-generation HondaLink Assist system.
