2018 Honda Accord's Features and Updates


The Redesigned 2018 Honda Accord Ushers in the Sedan's 10th Generation with a Bang

 The 2018 Honda Accord received an all-out redesign for the new model year, and designers did not hold back. The Honda Accord has always had an appealing design, but this time around the elegance and style boasts a European luxury feel and gives the midsize sedan a "class-above" presence.

If you're in the market for a new sedan, and have no problem turning heads on the highway or in a parking lot, then settle in as we at Honda Gallery break down the redesigned 2018 Honda Accord.

Upgrades & Changes in the new Honda Accord

It's not just the exterior that got a new look; the cabin of the 2018 Honda Accord has also changed since 2017. For example, in most trims, there is more room out back for full-size adults and the trunk space has gone up just over a foot of cubic space.

There are a few things you won't find for 2018, though. A big change was a discontinuation of the coupe body style. While we'll miss it, with the updated styling the Honda Accord maintains the curved, swooping look found on the coupe, minus the struggle of getting adults and/or children out back.

With the Honda Accord's reputation of being a family sedan, a V6 was truthfully superfluous for many shoppers. On the plus slide, the standard 1.5L engine gained a few horses (going from 185hp to 192hp) and several trims on the 2018 model have a 2.0L engine option that produces 252hp; less power than the old V6, but still enough to raise the adrenaline.

Increased Safety Technology

One of the biggest upgrades deals with advanced safety features. Now standard on all the trims is Honda Sensing®.  In the past, most vehicles worked to keep you safe after you got in a collision. Proper engineering is still important to our team, but now we have the knowledge and tools to help drivers avoid getting into an accident or collision in the first place! On the Honda Sensing® package drivers will have the following: Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, a Collision Mitigation Brake System, and Forward Collision Warning. Last year this was only standard on the Hybrid and Coupe version.

Convenience and Enjoyment Features

Even if the Honda Accord may have had "vanilla" looks before, the standard and available technology always stood out for shoppers. That's continued in 2018! We love the LED lights that not only look dazzling, but help keep you safer behind the wheel. We also enjoy the large touchscreens for easier tapping and viewing. Some trim-dependent standouts worth nothing include:

  • Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto ™ Integration
  • A futuristic and helpful Heads-Up display
  • Push Button Start and/or the Smart Entry Key
  • HondaLink subscription service
  • Wireless phone charging

Just the Right Amount of Options

The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid is available in the following trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring. The Sport, EX-L, and Touring trims are available in the 2.0L engine option for extra oomph when you press on the pedal.

The LX trim is great for shoppers who are watching their budget or want an attractive Honda leasing price. With the base model you'll get the same great looks plus the aforementioned Honda Sensing®, Push Button Start, and rear-view camera that provides helpful pathing.

If you're looking to compliment the elegant exterior with a luxurious interior then either the EX-L or Touring are trims you'll want to test drive. On the EX-L you'll find leather-trimmed seats, a Premium Audio system (perfect on busy morning and evening commutes), and available navigation if you enjoy a helping hand getting around the city. During the warmer summer months, drivers of the Touring will appreciate the cooling, ventilated seats. Year-round the wireless charging pad will keep you from getting tangled up and is a great conversation starter. We also cannot forget to mention the Adaptive Damper System that produces a ride so smooth that you won't want to get out of the car.
