Redesign and Changes Of 2018 Accord

What will the 2018 Honda Accord look like? Upcoming model is going to look rather classical so you are going to see a typical four-door sedan, however coupe version is promised to arrive as well.

2018 Accord redesign is going to be based on a new platform which follows all the latest trends. As you can guess this model is going to weigh less due to the use of lighter materials. Even though the overall look of Honda Accord 2018 redesign will not change a lot, you can see a lot of details which are modified and improved.

Look how similar 2018 Honda Accord rendering looks in comparison with the production model:

2018 Honda Accord dimensions are still undisclosed, but at the first sight it seems like the next-generation Accord has become bigger. The car also become very similar to Camry in terms of shape - sedan in a 5-door hatchback body with sloping roof - what could be better then? 2018 Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry holy war would be as hard as never before.

Main modifications and trim levels of next-generation 2018 Honda Accord:

  • Sedan
  • Wagon
  • Touring
  • Sport
  • Hybrid
  • Type R
Sedan Wagon Touring Sport Hybrid Type-R
The sedan is the most popular body type in North American market and the only one option for the customers from this part of the globe. The previous generation of the car was the first Accord ever has the same body style throughout the world. Before it, there were at least two versions - EU-spec and US-spec cars. The 2018 Accord is likely to have only one global design as well. We don't expect the availability of station wagon version of Accord. The reason is not only because previous gen of car doesn't have one; the main problem for such body type is that all potential buyers of utility vehicles are switching to all kinds of SUVs. Touring is the top-trim level designation for the current model year Accord. It is unlikely to be changed in 2018 Honda Accord touring V6. However, we could only guess what set of equipment will be installed in the top trim. The current Accord Touring has full LED headlights, heated rear seats, navigation, and a wide range of safety features. 2018 Accord Sport is likely to get the same distinctive features as the current generation of the car. For instance, matte-painted rims, rear spoiler, larger wheels and some sporty strokes in the interior. The powertrain of Honda Accord Sport 2018 will be slightly tuned 3.5-liter V6. There is some uncertainty for a hybrid version of Accord 2018 model year. The previous generation of hybrid Accord was discontinued in 2015, according to Honda's claim they could advance fuel economy through improving current engine technologies. So, of course, we could expect a new hybrid, but its appearance as 2018 model year car is under question. Type-R is a traditional designation for special 'sporty' versions of Honda cars. However, there was no Accord under this modification for quite a while. Even so, Type R was officially unavailable for the U.S. market. We could assume that Type R won't appear for 2018 Accord as well. Despite this, its appearance in other markets has certain possibility.

We could not expect changes in terms of market positioning. Just like before, the car will compete mainly with another Japanese brand mid-size sedans. Namely, Camry and Altima. Unlike rivals, Accord will get a coupe version and some special modifications.


2018 Accord Interior

When you talk about new Honda Accord 2018 interior, you talk about space and comfort. The fact is that this model has a wide cabin which provides enough room for five passengers and luggage as well.

Thus you are going to enjoy a new interior which is good looking and full infotainment features. If you wonder which ones, you have to be patient since Honda still does not give reliable information about this aspect.

2018 Honda Accord interior colors are unknown, but pre-production photos drop hints about bright beige and black leather upholstery, with different variations of front panel inserts.

New Accord Specs and Engine

To begin with, many sources promise that 2018 Honda Accord is going to arrive as a hybrid version. One of the engines which can be possibly used is an electric unit of a turbocharged type.

Another type which is anticipated is the 2.4-liter engine which is paired with a six-speed transmission. There also 2018 Honda Accord rumors predicting that the car may run on the V6 unit with 278 horsepower of productivity and 3.5 liters of displacement. It is also said that all types of new Accord will be of FWD type. We believe that 2018 Honda Accord V6 will be replaced by 2-liter turbo version.


Price Level

A new generation of Accord offers quite a wide range of trims and options to choose from that is why price range is wide. To start with, the base model is going to cost you from $24,100 to $35,140. A hybrid version of this generation is said to be priced quite reasonably and will amount to $31,400. The last on is Plug-in type which is the most expensive in line and will reach somewhat around $40,300. Nonetheless, these are not the final variants of pricing. As many sources promise the carmaker will probably make the pricing lower which sounds rather promising to all the Honda Accord fans.
