The 2018 Honda Accord Wants You to Forget All About Crossovers

2018 Honda Accord

Honda axed the Ford Mondeo rival from the British market in 2015, citing declining market trends as the reason for its withdrawal.

Engine options include two smaller, turbocharged engines - a standard 1.5-liter turbo four that makes 192 horsepower and 192 lb./ft. of torque, and a 2.0-liter turbo four capable of 252 horses and 273 lb./ft.

Honda introduced a redesigned battery sensor in June 2016.

Initial reviews of the 2018 Honda Accord have mostly been positive.

The vehicle is a little shorter than the previous generation, but the wheelbase is actually about 2 inches longer, which should translate into a smoother ride.

Accord uses high-strength steel in more than half of the structure, which is bonded together with extensive use structural adhesives. The vehicle will also get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity options. A suite of driver assists including adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking and traffic sign recognition is also available.

The Japanese firm announced on Thursday that it would recall almost 1.2 million Accord vehicles produced between 2013 and 2016, after receiving multiple reports of the cars' battery sensors causing fires in the engine.

Under the bonnet, United States buyers get a total of three powertrain options.

A hybrid variant powered by a 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle engine and two electric motors is likely to be added to the line-up later. It serves up 248bhp, and Honda says it is derived from the 316bhp powertrain found in the latest Civic Type R. A six-speed manual gear box will also be offered with the selected trims. The firm promises it'll be more efficient, and won't impede on the car's interior space and practicality.

It is still uncertain when the tenth-gen Accord will come to the Indian market since the current-generation Honda Accord Hybrid was launched in India only in 2016. Have your say in the comments.
