2018 Honda Accord Sedan
The all-new 2018 Honda Accord is the most impressive Honda yet. This new tenth-generation Accord has new standard features, more tech and luxury than before, and eye-catching new styling. The new model year won’t be seeing a coupe version, but the new Accord offers up interesting new powertrains for a stronger sedan performance. It has the reliability, economy, and comfort you love and expect from the Honda Accord, now with even more thoughtful engineering inside and out!
The newest generation of this long-time favorite sedan offers new and exciting design and features. It has something that appeals to everyone, whether it’s the updated infotainment center or the new turbocharged engine options. The 2018 Honda Accord offers a smooth ride with lots of driver assist features, a comfortable cabin, capable power, and room for the whole family.
As a well-rounded family vehicle, it’s effortlessly sophisticated and still roomy inside. The new exterior is inspired by fastback designs, with a more burly appearance that doesn’t cross the line to aggressive. It looks just as sleek and fast as it performs with the new standard turbo engines, a first for the Honda Accord. The new front end is striking and distinctive. It’s also very practical, with active grille shutters and air curtains to help improve aerodynamics. With a comfortable, plush interior with space for five, the 2018 Honda Accord can take you anywhere to road leads.
The 2018 Honda Accord is loaded with standard and available features that make your drive pleasant and easy. A full-color seven-inch Driver Interface lets you customize your digital in-dash display. It makes it easy to check on the information you need as you drive along. The Accord also offers 12-way power-adjustable seating and two savable seat positions, to make sure you are comfortable and commanding in the driver’s position.
You passengers will also be comfortable and entertained in the 2018 Honda Accord. The dual-zone automatic climate control is now standard on all Accord models, with color-changing backlit knobs for a sophisticated, artsy touch. There’s flexible 60/40 split-folding rear seating for when you need to accommodate some cargo as well as passengers. All-season floor mats help protect your Accord’s carpets from the mud, slush, and dirt that comes with everyday life. There are also little conveniences like the versatile center console storage compartment or the trunk drawer in the back that keep your possessions neat and organized.
Other performance features make this Accord smooth and confident no matter the road. Honda’s adaptive damper system controls the suspension system so that you have a quiet and comfortable ride over rough roads. The 2018 Honda Accord also features Smart Entry, Push Button Start, and Walk Away Auto Lock on some trims for easy, high-tech security.
The all-new Accord also has lots of features that enhance its driving performance and capability. The 2018 Honda Accord offers two advanced gas powertrains, putting more power at your command. An all-new 1.5L turbocharged engine come standard in all the 2018 Honda Accord models, while a 2.0L turbo version will be available in late 2017. The new Accord also offers several different transmissions to pair the engines with. The Sport trim comes with a six-speed manual transmission, which is a nice nod to enthusiasts when more competitors are offering only automatic options. Honda still offers its famous CVT transmission as standard on its other trims, but you can also get the CVT with paddle shifters on the Touring or by adding them to the Sport trim. A new ten-speed automatic transmission is also set to become available later in 2017, along with the 2.0L turbo engine.
This new model has also been refined and restyled for better agility and handling. The 2018 Honda Accord is tranquil and composed for everyday driving, but it also has a playful side. With a responsive chassis, perfectly balanced damping, and a sense of harmony with the controls, the Accord is ready for a chance to shine. It’s also exquisitely crafted to protect the cabin from noise and bumps, even when you’re having fun. The 2018 Honda Accord boasts amazing impact absorption and a tranquil cabin that make it a natural choice on any drive.
The 2018 Honda Accord also saw lots of upgrades to the interior. It offers seating for five, and with ample headroom and legroom in both the front and the rear, you really can take family and friends out on the town. The new, longer wheelbase means that the rear legroom is not only satisfying but generous. The Accord also keeps you toasty or cool with heated and ventilated seating. On select trims, there’s even heated rear outboard seating, so your rear passengers will be kept warm as well.
With the 2018 model, Honda focused on blending the Accord’s past simplicity with modern sophistication. The result is a beautifully minimalist instrument panel that gives the driver crisp, clear information. The materials Honda used in the cabin are premium quality and put together with care and attention to detail. The EX-L trim’s leather appointments are soft and durable. There’s also smooth, tasteful faux-wood trim decorating the cabin.
The infotainment center has also seen an upgrade for the 2018 year. The Accord’s new interface is clean and easy to use, with a combination of touchscreen and physical controls. A seven-inch screen comes standard, while an eight-inch screen is available. The menu remains configurable, so you can move the apps and buttons you use most to the front. Once you’re all set up, using the infotainment is quick and intuitive.
The 2018 Honda Accord comes packed with standard safety features. It offers Vehicle Stability Assist with the traction control, as well as electronic brake distribution and ABS. Each new Accord also has a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, daytime running lights, and more. There’s also a tire pressure monitoring system, seat-belt reminders, and child-proof rear door locks. Multiple standard airbags and Honda’s ACE body structure help keep you safe in the event of a crash.
Each 2018 Honda Accord now comes with the Honda Sensing safety suite as standard equipment, as well. Honda Sensing is a suite of advanced safety and driver assist features that helps keep you and your passengers safe on the road. The 2018 Honda Accord gives you a forward collision warning feature and a lane departure warning. If the warnings don’t fully avoid an accident, Honda Sensing also has collision mitigation braking and road departure mitigation. To make your drive easier, Honda Sensing also has Lane Keep Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, and Traffic Sign Recognition. Although the driver must remain aware and responsible at all times, Honda Sensing makes your task easier and your drive safer.
Honda offers five trims so that you can choose the features and amenities you want. The basic LX trim already comes with Honda Sensing, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, and the rearview camera. It starts at just $23,570* with the 1.5L turbocharged engine and CVT transmission. You’ll have your choice of eight exterior colors and either black or gray premium cloth interior trim.
The next step up includes integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Sport trim offers a more aggressive ride and a six-speed manual transmission. If you want a little more sophistication, the EX trim has a one-touch power moonroof, heated front seats, and an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen display. It also has a blind spot information system in addition to the Honda Sensing safety features. For a leather interior, go with the EX-L trim. It offers additional perks like an upgraded audio system, driver seat memory, and available navigation. The top-of-the-line Touring trim includes a head-up display, ventilated front seats, wireless phone charging, the adaptive damper system, and more amenities. Later in 2017, the Touring trim will become available with the 2.0L turbo engine and a ten-speed automatic transmission.
