2018 Honda Accord reveal video
In case you missed it, Honda just revealed the 2018 Accord via livestream, you can watch the 2018 Honda Accord reveal video right here or keep reading to learn all about the exciting new design features. Accord is a car that surprises and the 2018 version is certainly no different.
All-new exterior and interior design
For 2018, the exterior of the Accord has received a makeover from the front to the back. The long sculpted hood features refined edges that contrast well with a shortened rear deck. Overall, it creates an athletic look with a swooping silhouette that arcs right down to the taillights in the rear.
The side features a sill line that runs the lengths of the doors creating a strong presence and attitude. Up front, the Accord has sharp headlights with any eye toward the future and a nod to the previous generation. Overall, the 2018 Accord is lower and wider with a longer wheelbase but a shorter overall length. This longer wheelbase provides even more interior space than before.
By pulling the front pillars backward and moving the seating positions inward the 2018 Accord has recreated the feeling and the wonder of a concert hall. Combine this with thinner a-pillars and this Accord provides an even better view of the road.
The interior is comprised of high-grade soft touch materials with a sportier steering wheel and plenty of available features including a heads-up display, a wireless charging pad, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi just like the 2018 Honda Odyssey. What’s more, for 2018 the Honda Sensing suite of safety technology becomes standard with all of its features across the entire Accord lineup.
We previously covered the new engine and transmission options in a recent blog post, but at the time we didn’t have horsepower or torque numbers. With this reveal video, that has changed. The 1.5-liter turbo provides 192 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. The larger 2.0-liter turbo provides 252 horsepower and 273 torque, which is more torque than any Accord ever. Even more details to come soon.
