    2018 Honda Accord Unveiled With Turbocharged Four-Cylinder Engines



    Following a preview last month, Honda has officially unveiled the 2018 Accord.

    Set to go on sale this fall, the redesigned sedan has a unique front fascia with a prominent grille that sits above a large lower air intake. The model also has a sculpted hood, a sportier roofline, and uniquely shaped windows behind the rear doors. Out back, the Accord features an integrated rear spoiler, LED taillights, and a dual exhaust system with chrome accents.

    The exterior styling will likely prove polarizing but the cabin is different story as it features high quality materials and an upscale design. Once seated behind the three-spoke steering wheel, drivers will find a new soft-touch instrument panel, chrome accents, and an 8-inch Display Audio system with physical knobs for volume and tuning.

    Elsewhere, Honda installed more deeply padded arm rests and improved seats with taller shoulder bolstering for additional support. Rear seat passengers will also be grateful that the car's longer wheelbase results in nearly two inches of extra rear seat legroom.

    A variety of options will be available including heated and ventilated front seats as well as 6-inch head-up display. Other highlights include a wireless smartphone charger and 4G LTE connectivity.

    Entry-level models will be powered by a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 192 hp (143 kW) and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque. It can be connected to either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission.

    The Accord will also be available with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing 252 hp (187 kW) and 273 lb-ft (369 Nm) of torque. A six-speed manual is available on Sport variants but most models will come with a new 10-speed automatic transmission.

    Buyers looking for something more eco-friendly can check out the Accord Hybrid which features a 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle engine and two electric motors. Performance specifications will be announced closer to launch but Honda says the powertrain offers "improved power delivery with no compromise to interior or cargo space."

    All Accords will benefit from a lighter and more rigid body structure which uses the more ultra-high-strength steel. This helps the model to weigh between 110-176 lbs (49.9-79.8 kg) less than its predecessor.

    I kind of like the exterior on the white one. The front of the gray one looks like this though:

    It looks like it has down syndrome. At least the interior looks good.

    Honda has this very strange habit of alternating between beautiful and hideous Accords.

    If you go way back to the 2nd gens, there's a distinction, particularly with the taillights, that's made this model so popular and recognizable over the years. But then, every so often, Honda will radically change the look during a redesign, only to revert back to their old ways the next time around.

    The deviation from the "Accord look" really started with the 5th gen, but it wasn't that bad looking for its time period, imo.

    And from there...

    6th gen - attractive
    7th gen - ugly
    7th gen refresh (2006) - attractive
    8th gen - ugly
    9th gen - attractive
    10th gen - ugly

    If you put the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 9th gens all next to each other, there's a natural evolution that can be observed. All the other ones look disturbingly out of place.

    imo - one generation off (6th gen being odd)
