While we want to focus on the Accord Sedan on this page, it’s important to note that the Accord Coupe and Accord Hybrid are being updated right alongside it. For instance, one of the big enhancements for the next-generation Accord is its third-generation two-motor hybrid system, which will of course be found in the 2018 Accord Hybrid.
Specs & Features of the 2018 Accord Sedan
But, as we’ve mentioned, this page is all about the 2018 Accord Sedan. We just wanted to highlight a few of the important specs & features that will make the Accord Sedan such a strong choice in the midsize sedan segment, namely the updated powertrain we mentioned. While there are three new powertrain options total, two of them will be available in the Accord Sedan, and they’re both turbocharged 4-cylinder engines.
One option is a 1.5L, which is mated to a continuously variable transmission system regularly but you can opt for a 6-speed manual instead. The 1.5L engine features technologies like direct injection and dual-variable cam timing in addition to its turbocharger. It’s capable of doling out 192 horsepower alongside 192 pound-feet of torque, which is an improvement of 7 and 11 respectively from the base engine option last year.
The second option is a 2.0L, which is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission for the first time ever, but you can opt for the 6-speed manual on the Sport trim level if you’d prefer. This more powerful option generates 252 HP and 274 lb-ft. of torque, a pretty substantial boost. There are a host of other changes, updates and enhancements that the Accord Sedan has undergone, and you can check them all out right here in our showroom!
