2018 Honda Accord: The Tenth Generation

Following extensive development tests, the 2018 Honda Accord debuted on July 14 in Detroit through a live streaming event. Aesthetically speaking, the tenth generation of the new sedan resumes the style of the new Honda Civic, but also of Honda Clarity and Honda CR-V models.

The 2018 Honda Accord is based on the platform of the Honda Civic, which allows for wide cost reduction.

Through the first official pictures, the car was foreshadowed by a rendering where you can notice a chrome grille and LED headlamps. In early June, the Japanese company said that the 2018 Honda Accord will be released in three motor units, two of which are equipped with a turbo petrol engine with direct injection that will be matched to the new automatic transmission, to automatic CVT and the manual 6-speed. In addition, there is also space for a hybrid variant.

The sedan was tested in Nevada. The size is restricted to the current ninth generation. We recall that the fifth generation of the CR-V crossover recently glimpsed in the Mojave Desert during testing and about to debut in the middle of next year will also have the platform derived from Civic.

The part devoted to the thrusters will almost certainly including the V6 already present in addition to the hybrid variant, but there is nothing official. As mentioned before, the Japanese company is struggling with the tests of the CR-V and Civic Coupe, which also debuts next year.

Since 1976, Honda has been calling its middle-class model as Accord. While the eighth generation of the Accord chapter ended in 2015 in Europe, the tenth generation is now starting in the USA.

The reason is obvious. While the Honda Accord entered the market as a result of a lack of demand, in the USA, the Toyota Camry is crowning the crown of the best-selling Midsize Sedan. From January to April 2017 around 97,000 Accord were sold, which amounts to eleventh place in the US new registrations. This makes the car available as a sedan and coupé, the third-most popular car after the CR-V and the Civic.

Toyota occupies the sixth place with sales of 115,000 vehicles. Since 1976, Honda alone has brought more than 13 million Accord to the men and women in the US. For the completely new tenth edition, the Japanese manufacturer guarantees the smartest and most fanciful Accord ever.
