2018 Honda Accord Review
Shopping around for a midsize sedan with great efficiency, smart convenience and entertainment features, and advanced safety features? Drivers in Panama City and Springfield will appreciate that the 2018 Honda Accord goes above and beyond in all three of these categories.
This 2018 Honda Accord review will give you the basic knowledge you need, so you can see how capable the vehicle is. Let’s get started by looking at how it performs.
Under the Hood of the 2018 Accord
For maximum customization, Honda released six different trim levels of the 2018 Accord, including the LX, the Sport, the EX, the EX-L, the EX-L Navi, and the Touring. These all come standard with a turbocharged 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that puts out an impressive 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes configured with a continuously variable automatic transmission.
Two other powertrains are available for this vehicle, including a turbocharged 2.0L engine, which generates 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque for those seeking more power. If extra efficiency is closer to the top of your wish list, you can also opt for the hybrid option, which combines a 2.0L Atkinson-cycle engine with a 2-motor hybrid system.
Honda Accord Safety
The 2018 Honda Accord comes standard with Honda Sensing®, Honda’s exclusive safety technology package. With 10 different assistive and preventative technologies, you’ll get behind the wheel feeling confident on every day.
A few of these technologies, such as Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning, act as preventative systems. Lane Departure Warning lets you know when you’re drifting into another lane, while Forward Collision Warning uses a frontal camera to monitor potential collisions and alert you ahead of time.
Other technologies included in Honda Sensing® are corrective, like the Road Departure Mitigation System. This system detects when you’re heading off the road and alerts you by using rapid vibrations on the steering wheel. If you don’t correct your path, this system can even go as far as applying mild steering assistance and braking.
Honda Accord Technology Features
As you can see, the new Honda Accord is stacked with safety features. Still, these aren’t the only high-tech features you’ll be able to enjoy in this vehicle.
The standard Accord LX comes fitted with a 7-inch color touchscreen infotainment center. Upper level trims can enjoy this touchscreen with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. Stream music, send text messages, answer phone calls, and even access social media, all with your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.
Convenience features like Adaptive Cruise Control let you enjoy the journeys you make by sensing the proximity of vehicles around you and changing the speed of your vehicle to a customized safe following speed.
