[the_ad id="3962"]

One thing I assumed I might by no means say is, “I actually like the best way Honda’s look”.  And right here I'm, saying I actually like the best way Honda’s look.  It takes an open thoughts to actually understand how sharp the 2018 Honda Accord seems to be, in addition to that new Civic they got here out with.  Heck, I used to be footsteps away from truly leasing one myself.

Honda is admittedly making some nice automobiles.  As a result of not solely do you get reliability and bullet proof engines, you additionally get some sharp and attractive designs. It’ll take some getting used to since there’s that big “H” on the entrance finish, however simply naked with me and don’t be judgmental simply because they made this factor:

2002 Honda
You'll be able to virtually see what they have been considering…However why, Honda? Why?

The Exterior:

2018 Honda Accord
Too A lot? Or simply proper?

You'll be able to’t deny there's A LOT happening right here.  It’s legitimately exhausting to comply with one line on the automotive to see the place it leads as a result of there’s like 30,000 totally different angles and slashes.  However take a look at how proud that Honda badge is.  It's the furthest out entrance level on the Accord, ensuring you understand “I AM A HONDA AND I AM COOL”.  The redesign for the 2018 Honda Accord has a really busy entrance, and it's simply teetering on the sting of an excessive amount of for the attention.

I all the time favored the Accord for a way sporty it seemed and its character, and this new one seems to be like an entire new degree.

2018 Honda Accord rear
This has “Future Tuner” written throughout it.

The rear finish is far simpler in your eyes.  I can’t assist imagining it with an obnoxious spoiler or wing a couple of years down the street when youthful youngsters are snatching them up nicely under MSRP.  We'll in all probability see the 2018 Honda Accord in future “Quick and Livid” Films.

Again to what we’re taking a look at although, it's clear Honda is aiming for these youthful consumers who like to be flashy.  Or their mother and father going by way of a small disaster.  You possibly can’t deny the earlier era (Take a look at her right here: http://www.caranddriver.com/critiques/2017-honda-accord-assessment) was a really sharp sedan (or saloon, in the event you like tea).  It was very government on the lookout for a Honda.

The Coupe:

In the event you like driving sport, test it out:

2018 Honda Accord Coupe
Strains and slashes made to chop via a brick wall.

I do know 4 doorways are obvious right here, however the basic Accord DNA (Should you can name it that) exhibits that we have now a really aggressive coupe-like roof line, so we'll see a 2018 Honda Accord coupe.

The Inside:  

2018 Honda Accord Interior
LOOK AT THIS

LOOK AT THE INTERIOR! No I’m simply kidding that’s completely not it.

2018 Honda Civic Interior
This can be a Civic. Naked with me please.

The brand new Honda Accord inside will function a number of cool gizmos, in addition to Honda’s curiosity in fighter jets with the instrument cluster.  You may also guess on Honda using the twin-display we see within the present Accord and different Acuras.  I may also predict that the brand new Accord will use a 3-spoke steering wheel relatively than the 4 spoke within the present mannequin to suit with their new, trendy and youthful look.

Anticipate the 2018 Honda Accord to seat 5 adults comfortably.

The Efficiency:

The Accord for 2018 will function Honda’s dependable little 2.4L 4 cylinder engine, in addition to a three.5L V6 and eventually a 2.0L 4 cylinder with an electrical motor to assist energy the wheels.  Energy output (in numbers converse) isn’t completely spectacular.  We’re taking a look at max output round 278 HP with the three.5L V6, which for my part must be reworked for extra energy.  The 4 cylinders will get you 189 HP.  278 max HP out of a V6 sports activities coupe?  There’s lots higher on the market proper now.

However don’t fret, Honda goes to be transforming issues and perhaps we’ll see some elevated energy.  Truthfully, in case you’re making a sports activities coupe that appears like some type of mutant shark, we'd like no less than 300 HP from the V6.  Even the 4 cylinder ought to be capable of output 240 HP.  Strap a turbo to it if you must, however energy is energy.  It’s one step to look the half, one other to truly be the half.  Don’t simply speak the speak, stroll the stroll.

Gasoline financial system although, is a unique story.  How does forty five+ Freeway MPG sound?  Good, huh?  That’s one factor Honda will get proper each time.  You'll be able to go for miles and miles with out worrying about upkeep or stopping to prime off the tank.  However please simply give us extra energy Honda.

Sum It Up:

In conclusion, the 2018 Honda Accord is shaping as much as be a cool providing from Honda.  Honda as a model has actually stepped up their recreation in recent times, and 2018 goes to be an amazing mannequin yr (Take a look at whats coming…) for Honda.  Simply so long as they pump out some additional horses (I’m positive they may) from their engines.

The Honda Accord is likely one of the greatest promoting automobiles ever, and it looks like the automotive is taking the form of a machine that may be a little bit of an acquired style.  The slashed and cuts you’d want to guard youngsters from on the physique work might not appeal to the identical viewers because the older fashions.  However Honda appears okay with that.

Here's what’s available on the market now.
