Will there be a Honda Accord Coupe for 2018?
Some people really liked the coupe option for the 2017 Honda Accord. This has led many to wonder if there will be a Honda Accord Coupe for 2018. We have your answers right here and we will also discuss the unique exterior styling of the Accord along with the history of the Accord Coupe.
What body styles will be available for the 2018 Accord?
For the 2017 model year, the Accord has two body styles available, namely the sedan and the coupe, but that will change in 2018. Honda will not be making a coupe version of the latest Accord, instead opting to produce it as only a four-door sedan, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Let us tell you why.
Which Accord models had a coupe option?
Third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth generation Accords have all had coupe variants. In other words, the Accord has had a coupe since the 1988 model year and 2018 will be the first model year without a coupe.
The vehicle landscape is changing. As more Americans look to larger cars, the Civic could fill any gap left by the Accord Coupe. With the new styling and sporty configurations the 2018 Accord won’t be leaving much of a gap at all.
Those who still want that Accord Coupe power and styling will find much to love with the 2018 Accord. Even though it has four doors, its fastback roofline and ability to have both of its turbocharged engines mated to a manual transmission in the Sport trim make this an exciting model. If a coupe is still what you desire, then the Honda Civic Coupe will still be there as an option.
What is a fastback?
The word fastback as it applies to cars has been underused in recent decades. This has lead many to wonder about the word’s meaning. Fastback was a style utilized by many American muscle cars in the 60’s and 70’s. Essentially it’s used to describe cars whose rear roofline slopes backward to meet with the taillight region. Fastback vehicles may still have a trunk like the 2018 Accord, but the trunk lid is much less pronounced than non-fastback styled cars.
