Fischer Honda is excited to introduce Ann Arbor area drivers to the recently debuted 2018 Honda Accord! This all-new Accord features a pair of new direct-injected, turbocharged engines and sleek styling inside and out which are sure to continue the strong legacy of Accord sedans. With the completed redesigned 2018 Accord, now is the perfect time to be in the market for a new mid-size sedan! With so many new features to cover, let's take a look at what makes the 2018 Accord the new standard in mid-size sedans!
No matter where the current gas prices lie, every driver wants a car that provides sufficient power and impressive fuel economy ratings for its class of vehicle. With the 2018 Accord, take your pick of two highly efficient turbocharged 4-cylinder engines. Honda's recently developed 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with direct injection has made its way into the tenth generation Accord after receiving rave reviews in the latest Civic and CR-V. Featuring 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque, the new 1.5-liter turbo in the 2018 Accord represents the standard powertrain and outperforms the previous-generation Accord's base engine by 7 horsepower and 11 lb-ft of torque while also improving fuel economy.
Replacing the Accord V6 model's 3.5-liter V6 for 2018 is an all-new 2.0-liter direct-injected turbocharged engine that develops 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque -- which is up 21 lb-ft of torque over the V6. Both of the new turbo engines employ variable valve timing for enhanced performance and efficiency to complement the powertrains' direct injection and choice of efficient transmissions.
Drivers who opt for a 2018 Honda Accord with the standard 1.5-liter engine will have a choice of a CVT (continuously variable transmission) or an optional 6-speed manual gearbox. 2.0-liter equipped 2018 Accord sedans get a new 10-speed automatic transmission as standard, with the 6-speed manual again offered on Accord Sport models.
The 2018 Honda Accord features a longer wheelbase, lower roofline and wider track, all which give this new sedan a sleeker, wider and lower stance than the outgoing model. The increased wheelbase should translate to increased legroom for both front and rear-seat passengers. One look at the cabin of the all-new 2018 Accord and you can tell that Honda has brought its mid-size sedan even further upscale, with its highly refined interior and elegantly designed steering wheel, gauges, center stack and infotainment system.
Honda's latest high-tech features abound in its redesigned flagship sedan. Honda Sensing, a suite of advanced driver assist and active safety features is standard on every 2018 Accord, and includes adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking and even a new traffic-sign recognition system. Wireless device charging, Bluetooth connectivity, 4G LTE in-car Wi-Fi and a 6-inch head-up display are also available tech amenities on the 2018 Accord.
