Introducing the 2018 Honda Accord

Since 1976, Honda has striven to provide the Accord, its flagship sedan, with the latest innovations in design, technology, and safety. Thanks to this dedication, the Accord has gained a reputation for its reliability, efficiency, and for being an absolute pleasure to drive. Even with such a legacy of success to fall back on, Honda continues to push the envelope. They have poured everything they've got into the all-new Accord to bring it to the next level and make it the most impressive Honda ever. 

At First Glance

The Accord's European-inspired fastback roof, wide stance, and strong body lines make it stand out in a crowd. Its distinctive design features are a beautiful combination of form and function.  Active Grille Shutters and Air Curtains, available on EX and EX-L models, improve aerodynamics and efficiency. The Accord's signature LED headlights, running lights, and tail lights not only look good, but also provide sharper, more vibrant light to help keep you safe. To round off the Accord's good looks, alloy wheels come standard. The Sport and Touring trims even feature eye-catching 19-inch wheels.

A New Heart

The all new Accord offers three all new engine options as well. 

The first is a 1.5-liter, turbocharged, and intercooled DOHC 4-cylinder engine that produces 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. The 1.5-liter engine can be paired to either a 6-speed manual transmission or an automatic CVT transmission.

A 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 4-cylinder engine produces 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque is also available for Sport and above trim levels. You can enjoy the swift acceleration of all that power by rowing through the gears of a 6-speed manual transmission or choose the first-in-class 10-speed automatic transmission for smooth, seamless acceleration from gear to gear. The 10-speed automatic has an innovative push button drive selection, so you can choose park, reverse, neutral, or drive with the push of a button, giving you a more spacious center console.  Race-inspired paddle shifters are also available. 

Arriving early in 2018, there will also be a next generation two-motor hybrid available for more fuel-efficient driving. 


It's What on the Inside That Counts

The expansive cabin of the 2018 Accord offers sophistication, refinement, and features abound. There is seating for five with a remarkable amount of rear head and leg room. You will arrive comfortably with plush, supportive seats that can be positioned exactly the way you like with the available 12-way power adjustable driver's seat and two savable positions. Heated front and rear outboard seats are available to provide you with extra warmth on those cool days. For hot days, ventilated front seats are available as well.  Luxurious leather seats and a leather wrapped steering wheel bring sophistication to the next level and are available in the EX-L and Touring trims. 

A well-thought-out, ergonomic cabin make driving the new Accord easy and enjoyable. The standard dual-zone climate control keeps temperatures ideal for you and your passengers. Back-lit color-changing rotary knobs help you make adjustments easily as you drive. There is a standard full-color 7-inch driver interface display crafted into the gauge cluster that can be customized to provide you with helpful information as you drive. The drivers interface display, audio system, and Bluetooth features can all be managed by steering wheel controls that are also standard on the Accord. The Touring models even have an intuitive Heads-Up Display that projects important information such as speed, turn-by-turn directions and incoming calls unintrusively onto the windshield. 

The Accord has an abundance of other features and technology available. Here are some of the stand-outs:

  • Mobile Hotspot - Turn your vehicle into a mobile hotspot for wireless streaming and more, with an available data plan from AT&T
  • Premium Audio System - Play music from your favorite source through a full, rich-sounding 10-speaker audio system with an easy-to-use 8-inch touch-screen display. Connectivity includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, SiriusXM, and HD Radio.

Cutting-Edge Safety 

Honda goes above and beyond to protect you and your passengers. Not only is the Accord designed for reliability, but it also comes with the latest in Honda's safety technology to help prevent you from being in an accident in the first place. Honda Sensing, which comes standard on every new Accord, provides a suite of intelligent driver assistance features and safety systems as extra protection for you and your passengers. These features include:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System - Provides help with braking the Accord when an otherwise unavoidable collision with another vehicle is detected in front of you.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System - A small camera that senses road markers to alert you if you are about to leave the road, and it can take action to help prevent you from doing so.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow - Helps to maintain a set following distance on the highway so you don't need to manually adjust your speed if the vehicle ahead of you slows.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition - Uses a small camera to recognize and then notify you of speed limit signs with a visual icon. 
  • Lane Keeping Assist System - Adjusts the steering to bring you back into the center of your lane if it detects that you are drifting out of your lane without signaling. 
  • Honda Lane Watch - Live video of the passenger-side roadway will come up on the infotainment screen to show you what may be lurking in your blind spot
