    2018 Honda Accord Previewed, Drops V6 In Favor Of Type R Turbo Engine



    Honda has released the first details about the 2018 Accord and it's going turbo.

    Set to go on sale later this year, the redesigned model is "new-from-the-ground-up" and promises to have a more aggressive stance than any previous Accord.

    The camouflaged photo doesn't reveal much but Honda confirmed the car will be offered with three different powertrains including two turbocharged four-cylinder engines and a two-motor hybrid system.

    The entry-level engine will be a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder which will likely be lifted from the Civic and CR-V. If our assumption is correct, the engine could produce 174 hp (129 kW) and 162 lb-ft (219 Nm) of torque. Regardless of the final numbers, the engine will be offered with either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission.

    Customers will also be able to purchase an Accord with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine related to the unit used in the new Civic Type R. There's no word on performance figures but the company confirmed it can be paired to either a six-speed manual or an all-new ten-speed automatic transmission which was developed in-house. The latter gearbox means the 2018 Accord will become the first front-wheel drive car to be offered with a ten-speed automatic.

    Lastly, the Accord will be offered with a next-generation two-motor hybrid system. Little is known about it but Honda says the powertrain is all-new and even more refined than before. It will also be able to operate without the use of a conventional automatic transmission.

    Future Cars: 2018 Honda Accord Goes From Placid to Playful



    The generic mid-size sedan is not exactly the stuff of bedroom posters, but they’ve been a hit with buyers for decades. Times are changing though, with consumer preferences shifting towards SUV’s and the battleground for the typical sedan is looking a little shaky.

    As with Toyota and Chevrolet, Honda knows they have to inject some sex appeal into their mid-sizer to keep buyers interested and maintain sales. How will they do it? With an all-new, 10th generation 2018 Accord, so let’s take an illustrated first look at what Honda has in store for us.

    What Will It Look Like:

    Breaking with stodgy tradition, the next Accord will follow in the footsteps of its smaller Civic sibling with contemporary styling featuring a fastback profile.

    Frontal design is dominated by thin-wedge LED headlamps, large multi-slatted chrome grille (or black for sporting variants) and aggressive lower intake detailing. The side DLO (daylight opening area) picks up quarter windows aft of the rear doors, whilst the boot opening will be slightly less practical due to the sleek profile and short rear deck.

    Under The Swathe Skin:

    The current car is one of the better offerings in terms of interior packaging and build quality, albeit lacking in design flair. How will Honda ramp up cabin appeal? Again, look towards the latest Civic, with better materials, driver assist technologies and infotainment options.

    Underpinning the new Accord will be a platform shared with new CR-V and Civic, so don't expect anything fancy construction or suspension-wise.

    Efficient Powertrains:

    Platform-sharing also means engine-sharing. Sitting as the new entry offering, Honda’s potent 1.5-litre, turbocharged four will supplement a larger displacement engine, gas-electric hybrid and plug-in hybrid (PHEV).

    What isn’t known, is if the larger capacity offering will be a V6 or detuned version of the 2.0-litre unit found in the Civic Type R. Power will be fed to the tarmac via continuously variable automatic (CVT) in most markets or possibly its new 10-speed automatic, however a 6-speed manual maybe be offered to North American buyers.

    Midsize Competition:

    Traditionally the Accord has outpaced rivals like Toyota’s Camry, Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima and Mazda 6. All have their strengths and weaknesses - arguably the Mazda is the best drivers pick of the bunch, however the next Accord is expected to up the ante in that department too.

    Look for an official debut later this fall with a minor bump in pricing.

    Tells us your thoughts on Honda’s next-gen Accord in the comments below.

    Honda Teases 2018 Accord With A Sketch Ahead Of July 14 Debut



    The all-new 10th generation Honda Accord will make its world debut on July 14 in Detroit, with the event to be livestreamed online.

    Honda calls it the most fun-to-drive and dramatically-styled Accord ever, which -given its past- isn’t a really tall order if you think about it.

    Earlier this month, the company announced that the new Accord will be offered with three powerful and fuel-efficient powertrains, two of those being turbocharged with direct injection and paired with either Honda’s newly-developed 10-speed automatic transmission, a CVT or a six-speed manual. The new Accord will also come with the next-gen two-motor hybrid technology.

    A single teaser sketch was released, revealing the front end of the new Accord, complete with LED headlights and Honda’s latest chrome grille. Judging by our own renderings, it seems that our man Josh Byrnes should really start working as a clairvoyant instead.

    Honda will reveal additional information about the new powertrains and technology on the 2018 Accord at the reveal event.

    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)
