The Accord was first introduced to the worldwide market by the Japanese automaker Honda in 1976, except in the United States. This model was introduced in America in 1989 and since then, it was one among the highest selling vehicle in the country. Honda used its nameplate for a range of vehicles, such as wagons, coupes, crossovers, and hatchbacks, all over the world. The 2018 Honda Accord, which is a medium-sized sedan, is just the adaptation of the 2016 model Accord, which is the ninth generation vehicle in the series.
2018 Honda Accord Redesign
The 2018 Accord will be constructed with a sleek and athletic body, made of lightweight materials to offer better performance and fuel saving characteristics. The new sedan is expected to come with an aggressive front fascia, which will now be equipped with a daring grille and with a set of square-shaped LED headlamps to offer it a luxurious front look. The vehicle comes with a small trunk lid, with a sexy and curved roofline that combines with an aggressive slanting window at the back in a smooth way.
Although new Accord 2018 is the redesigned version of the existing accord, it resembles the current model of the Honda Civic and marks an exit from a more traditional shape of the current model. Moreover, the 2018 model is going to underpin its platform with the Honda Civic because the automaker moves on the way to less, but more supple, vehicle structural design.
Honda Accord 2018 Interior
The interior of the 2018 Honda Accord is expected to be improved, but it’s a pity, because there are only few spy photos of the interior, with not much to show. However, some rumors imply that its interior features will be borrowed from the tenth generation Civic. Furthermore, the cabin should get more control keys and improved infotainment system. The new vehicle is a bit bigger footstep, meaning the cabin will be also bigger, considering that Civic has “grown up”, nothing unusual that Accord does the same.
One thing is certain, the cabin will get a bigger center display than that of the current Accord. It will now be designed with the touchscreen expertise. Some notable standard interior features that are expected to offer include Android Auto and Apple Car Play.

Main reason is, because this should be a four-cylinder turbocharged power unit. This smaller, but stronger engine will be used instead of the V6 engine found in the earlier model.
The new Honda Accord 2018 hybrid variant comes with the same four-cylinder power unit that powered older Hybrid. However, it will be finely tuned to offer the vehicle, more power output of 212 horsepower with the cooperation of a durable electric motor.
