Honda Accord: Can't Take The Heat

Honda Accord: Can't Take The Heat

Transmission choices include a continuously variable transmission, a 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic.

A hybrid variant powered by a 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle engine and two electric motors is likely to be added to the line-up later.

Honda showed off its all-new Accord Friday, touting it as the most fun-to-drive and premium Accord ever.

It's therefore a pretty big deal when such a successful model undergoes a major restyle, and Honda has probably gone a little further with its recently unveiled 2018 Accord than some commentators may have expected. The latter one makes 250PS and 370Nm of peak torque, while the smaller motor churns out 189PS and 260Nm.

The issue will affect up to 2.1 million units of HOnda Accord with 1.15million from the US.

This isn't just a cosmetic exercise though, as this tenth-generation model is all-new from the ground up and employs a lighter and more rigid body structure, an advanced new chassis, a pair of new high-torque direct-injected and turbocharged engines, and a 10-speed automatic transmission that's a first for a front-drive auto. However, the 2018 model of Honda accord will not be offered in the existing 3.5-litre, V-6 and the 2.4-litre, I-4.

The new 2018 Accord also includes active and passive safety systems such as Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, Anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Distribution, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), advanced front airbags, driver and front-passenger side airbags and new driver and front-passenger knee airbags. With a roomier cabin, Honda is betting high on clinching back the lost market share from the SUVs and crossovers in Detroit. The vehicle will also get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity options.

The Japanese automaker is recalling 1.2 million Accords made between 2013 and 2016.
