MARKHAM, Ont., October 6, 2017 – The completely reimagined 2018 Honda Accord is set to arrive at Canadian dealerships on October 27, 2017 with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $26,490 and topping out on the Touring trim (2.0T) at $38,790. In recreating Accord for its 10th generation, Honda designers and engineers sought to convey “absolute confidence” in every element of design and performance.
“Building on the bedrock character of Accord – its outstanding quality, fuel efficiency, packaging and sophisticated driving dynamics – the 10th-generation Accord injects a new level of emotional appeal and premium quality” said, Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Honda Canada Inc.
The 10th generation 2018 Accord takes an entirely new approach to performance with its two new direct-injected VTEC Turbo® 4-cylinder engines with dual VTC – a 1.5-liter 16-valve inline-4 and a 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC inline-4. Both new turbocharged engines produce peak torque across a broad range of engine speed (RPM), delivering smooth and virtually lag-free power for exceptional throttle response and power delivery in all driving conditions.
Upscale and sophisticated, confident and distinctive, youthful and sporty – the 10th generation Accord design strongly advances the emotional and aspirational appeal of Accord. Designed to distinguish itself as a “class above” its competitors, the new Accord has a wider stance, lower roofline and a dramatically longer, lower hood to achieve improved dynamics, a more comfortable interior and a more dramatic presence.
All Accords feature the full suite of Honda Sensing® safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard equipment.
The 2018 Accord Hybrid’s third-generation i-MMD Two-motor hybrid system is a highly efficient powertrain that selects the optimal drive operation under a wide range of driving conditions to combine fun-to-drive performance with outstanding fuel efficiency.The new hybrid will arrive in early 2018.
