Honda promises the next-gen Accord will be the most stylish and premium one to date – and the most fun to drive, too
Honda‘s 10th-generation Accord is officially set to debut in less than a month.
Ahead of the full reveal on July 14, Honda also dropped a glimpse at the new Accord’s front end, promising the most “dramatically styled” model yet. Honda is also keen to point out the new Accord will be the most premium to date, as well as engaging to drive.
While we can’t speak for the finished product, we did recently get a sneak peek at the next-gen Accord and, yes, it lives up to Honda’s fun-to-drive promises. Part of this has to do with the engine; Honda has already confirmed two new turbocharged engines will be available, including a detuned variant of the Civic Type R’s turbo-four pegged as a replacement for the V6. Certainly sad news for some, but the boosted engine should put out around 295 horsepower – more than the outgoing V6, but less than the Type R.
Honda has also already confirmed the new Accord will come with three transmission options – a 10-speed automatic transmission, a CVT and on some trim levels, a six-speed manual. Along with the two new turbocharged engines, the 2018 Accord will also gain a two-motor hybrid powertrain.
We’ll have more details on the 2018 Accord following its debut.
