Honda Accord has already established itself as one of the most reliable and consistent vehicle in the sedan segment. The 2018 Honda Accord has been completely redesigned and we think, it has become even better in terms of visual appeal. Honda is notorious about its reluctance on experimenting with the technical aspects once they seem to find a successful model but they tried to sway away from that notion and fiddled a bit with this 2018 Honda Accord. All in all, 2018 Honda Accord seems to be the most refreshing Accords ever!
2018 Honda Accord received a bolder look than any of its predecessors. While the Coupe model has been discontinued, the new accord has a longer wheelbase. 2018 Accord has a somewhat narrower grille, the side and rear sheetmetal extends a fastback roofline. The 2018 Honda Accord definitely has a more streamlined and contemporary look than the traditional sedans.
2018 Honda Accord added additional legroom in the rear seat. We thought the previous model was spacious enough but the additional space makes this 2018 Accord even roomier. Coupled with generous cargo area and plenty of detailed, finer touches throughout the interior, we have to say Honda did a pretty decent job on the new interior. There are also plenty of technology: 8.0-inch touchscreen display, optional head-up display, lane keeping assistance, adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation braking comes standard with other safety techs.
Under the Hood
The new redesigned Accord has fewer horses under the hood but the impressive torque has made up for the difference. The newer engine lineup starts with 1.5-liter, 192 horsepower, turbo, 4-cylinder. The next step up is another 4-cylinder: 252 horsepower, 2.0-liter turbo-four. Unfortunately the V-6 is no longer an option. A six speed manual transmission is available but admittedly, we are a huge fan of the 10-speed automatic transmission. All things considered, the newly redesigned Accord seems to be a good balance of power and efficiency.
The base price of the 2018 Honda Accord is a little over $24,000 and you can spend as much $34,000 if you fancy all the bells and whistles 2018 Honda Accord has to offer. Historically, Honda Accords has a very good resale value and reliability record, and we think the price spent on a Honda Accord is a wise investment.
We don’t hear a lot of buyer remorse from Honda Accord owners. Party because, they are quality sedans at a reasonable price and have a solid track record for both safety and reliability.
