Honda, a Japanese public multinational automaker has already teased a few features and aspects of its upcoming 2018 Accord mid-size sedan. According to reports, the 2018 Honda Accord will debut on July 14 at exactly 11 a.m. EST.
Aside from availing the vehicle, the automaker will also offer a live stream on its YouTube channel, with the real, in-person debut taking place in Detroit, Michigan. Honda's 10th-generation Accord ensures all customers of a more efficient and more stylize car experience. Honda also promises that that whoever ride on the sedan, it will encounter a more fun factor compared to other sedan rivals.
According to CNET, everything we know as of now regarding the 2018 Honda Accord involves the powertrain. The automaker already overturned the V6 for 2018, opting for a couple of turbocharged I4 engines instead. The said base engine is expected to be a 1.5-liter I4 based on the Honda Civic Sport's four-banger.
In addition to that, a more powerful 2.0-liter I4 will also borrow some of its foundations from the Civic Type R vehicle. However, many car analysists and enthusiasts warned people to not expect the upcoming car to have an all 306 horsepower to show up. This is because another hybrid car should be on the way, as well.
The standalone gas engines of the 10th-generation Honda Accord will be offered with a six-speed manual, Auto Blog reported. Also, the 1.5-liter seems to come together with a CVT, as what Honda does in its Civic model. On the other hand, the 2.0-liter will come paired to a new 10-speed automatic front-wheel-drive car.
It is really a good idea for Honda to stick with a manual vehicle as more and more opponents drop three-pedal setups from their sedan cars. On July 14, Honda will not just uncover the 10th-gen Accord mode, but also promised a lot with the new model, which are all focused on giving better driving dynamics, more refinement and better fuel economy.
