2018 Honda Accord Design
Since Honda seems totally sealed, sensitive information related to the coming Accord. Nevertheless, some pictures of Spy Shot that spread over the Internet make us speculate. Although it is very difficult to reveal all the details, because the Accord prototype was strongly camouflaged in a secret test. We can only guess and speculate a little, nothing more.
The Honda Accord 2018 will certainly share the same platform with the current generation Civic. It is claimed that the new platform is lighter and has a stiffer chassis compared to previous platforms. This is evident from its general body shape that resembles the Civic. The most striking change in the exterior design is a quick roofline and a shorter trunk lid. While the design of the headlights seems wider and narrower for the 2018 model year. In addition, the new profile design will be more elegant and more aggressive than the previous generation.
The new Accord interior will also include technical changes, including updates on its multimedia system. But there is not much information that we can share with you regarding interior changes. So let’s talk about the specification. The new model will always be offered in several levels of finish, including Sport, Touring, EX, EX-L and the basic LX finish level.
2018 Honda Accord Powertrain
We bet that the 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharger used in Civic and the CR-V will be the core engine of the new Accord, which will probably somewhere near 200 horsepower. Given Honda’s continued support for stick changes, even in ordinary sedans, bank on a standard six-speed manual and optional optional variable continuously (CVT). The engine upgrade is a bigger question mark: rumors suggest that the Accord could nix its V-6 engine in favor of a four-turbocharged, a version of the Civic Type R 2.0-liter unit, Even though it is less suited to performance and between 270 and 280 horsepower. The Accord hybrid is expected to continue with a deferred version of the current hybrid’s electric fuel train.
