The Honda Accord is a midsize sedan we’ve loved and admired for the daily drive we need to make to wherever we need to go. This is a car that’s been around for a long time and it’s been upgraded for the 2018 model year to give you the car that you want with even more qualities that you’ll love than ever before. Here are some of the items you’ll find in the Honda Accord that you want to know about when you’re ready to consider this impressive family sedan as the one you want to drive.
Turbocharged Engines – There aren’t going to be any naturally aspirated engines found under the hood of the 2018 Honda Accord. This car is ready to offer you the benefits of three different engines that all have the turbocharging you want and offer you the power and efficiency that will give you the ride you want to enjoy out on the road.
More Cargo Capacity – While the new Accord looks sleeker and sportier, the cargo area found in the trunk is massive compared to the model that was offered in the past. This capacity gives you 16.7 cubic feet of space to store and carry what you need to whether you’re coming home with a load of groceries or ready to head out for the vacation you want to enjoy.
Honda Sensing – The Honda Sensing suite of advanced active safety features is offered as a standard part of the Accord on all trim levels. The suite includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warnings and lane keeping assist. This is offered on both automatic and manual transmission equipped models to make sure you can have the safety you want.
Fuel Mileage – The fuel mileage you’ll find for all three engines has been increased to make it easy for you to have the drive you want that sips at the fuel and makes the ride more affordable for you. You’ll have a range of mileages from 33 to 38 mpg on the highway to make sure you can take on the long commute when you have one.
Pricing – The Honda Accord continues to be one of the most affordable models you can find on the market. Starting at less than $25,000 for the base model you can move up through the trim levels and top out at a little over $36,000 for the trim that has all the bells and whistles you could ever expect to find in the Accord.
Ventilated Front Seats – The 2.0T Touring trim offers you standard ventilated front seats but you can have them as an option on other trim levels as well. You’ll also enjoy the benefit of heat for the front and rear seats on this trim and can have this added to some of the other trims to make it easier to have the comfort you’re looking for.
New Infotainment – You can enjoy the new touchscreens for the Honda Accord which offers you a seven-inch standard and an eight-inch optional screen for the infotainment you’re looking for. You’ll have the connectivity of the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to be able to connect your smartphone and use the apps you love in your new Accord.
Acceleration Unexpected – With this car and its lineup of turbocharged engines you can rocket to sixty mph faster than in the past. The 1.5-liter engine models reach that speed in 7.6 seconds, the 2.0T with the manual transmission does the run in 6.2 seconds while the models with the new ten-speed automatic can reach the sixty mph mark in 5.7 seconds.
Spread Out – Those that ride in the rear seats of your Accord will have more room for their feet and legs with an extra 2.5 inches over what was offered last year. This is the result of the longer wheelbase that’s offered on this car in order to give you more of the qualities and the comfort needed on the road during the long haul.
Upgraded In-Car Technology – The near-field communication makes connecting to the Bluetooth faster, the 2.0 Touring models come with traffic sign recognition, while other items offered on this car include blind spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, cross traffic monitoring, driver awareness monitor, adaptive damping, and more.
