1.       The Look

The 2018 Honda Accord is a stronger version compared to previous years, offering superior safety while being sporty and fuel efficient. The frame is made from 29 percent high-strength steel (which is 2x’s more than the 2017 model). It’s easy to say that overall, the Honda Accord is more attractive than ever before.

2.       The Engine

With just the base model Accord, you’ll find a 192-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter engine mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a six-speed manual transmission. This is some serious power from the engine that will not disappoint. Additionally, there’s an upgraded 252-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that’s available, mated to a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission.

3.       The Features

The 2018 Honda Accord has a whole slew of them, including padded touchpoints for the driver and front seat passenger’s legs, two cubic feet more passenger volume than its predecessor, plus a larger trunk than ever before.

For the driver, steering wheel controls allow for easy navigation both in the entertainment system and the driver display screen.
