Honda unveils new Accord as midsize cars fall out of favor

2018 Honda Accord In For A Rough Ride

The vehicle was completely redesigned from scratch, though it's not a significant departure from the ninth generation Accord, whose buyers prize reliability, sensibility and quality. In the six-cylinder's place is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, which can be had with a 10-speed automatic or a six-speed manual.

The auto maker also figured in the biggest car recall in the country's history, where millions of its vehicles were pulled out of the market due to exploding Takata airbags. The base four is 1.5 liters and it puts out 192 horsepower with a continuously variable transmission.

Above average safety ratings have been a hallmark of the Accord-and they remain a vital consideration for consumers cross-shopping midsized sedans. Like with the 1.5 liter, torque is available at 1,500 rpm and should make the car feel stronger around town. For European markets, the Accord is likely to get the 1.6-litre diesel as well, added to the range. First, it would have meant compromising other parts of the car's platform, such as reducing interior space. The seats are pushed in just a bit, improving hip room slightly. The new battery pack is mounted under the floor rather than in the trunk.

A variety of options will be available including heated and ventilated front seats as well as 6-inch head-up display. This is a real three-pedal transmission. The 12-volt battery sensors will be replaced free of charge.

Honda said the 1.5- and 2.0-liter gasoline models will be available this fall, with the Hybrid model to start selling in early 2018.

Owners can check if their car is included in the recall by visiting www.recalls.honda.com or by calling 888-234-2138.

That effort begins the 10th-generation Accord's new styling and revised proportions.

Outward visibility, always apriority with Honda, has been enhanced with a lower cowl and by front A pillars 20 percent narrower and moved rearward relative to the driver's seating position.

It's unclear how much more fuel the new Accord Hybrid will sip compared with the version Honda just last year released. Finally, Schafer Cullen Capital Management Inc. raised its stake in shares of Honda Motor Company by 4.6% in the first quarter.

For 41 years and nine generations, Accord has set the standard for passenger cars in America.

The Accord is more connected than ever.

Honda says it can run at more than 40 percent thermal efficiency, which it calls the highest for any mass-produced Honda engine. Production will begin in a few months. (50-80 kg) depending on grade.

Honda said the road salt can get into the sensor of the negative battery terminal and cause corrosion which could lead to an electrical short. Honda is once again using knobs to control volume and tuning for the very cool new infotainment system. The Accord Hybrid, to be built in Ohio, will come with the Hybrid, EX, EX-L, EX-L Naci and Touring Trims.
