As engine technology improves, cars can do a lot more with a lot less. That is why the 10th generation Honda Accord is saying goodbye to the V6 engine in favor of a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. While some shoppers may be disappointed in this change, all indications show that this will be a thrilling update.
The base engine, though, will be a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder, which is the same engine found in the Civic and CR-V. It will be paired with a continuously variable transmission.
As for the 2.0T engine, it could very well be the most powerful one in its class. In addition, this engine will come standard with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Buyers can also opt for a six-speed manual with either engine.
Along with a new engine lineup, the 2018 Accord will have sleek new styling. While the official design hasn’t been released, we have seen quite a few spy photos of camouflaged prototypes out on the road for testing. Based on the details we can see, the Accord will have more dynamic styling that will help it stand out more from the crowd.
The redesigned 2018 Honda Accord will be coming to Lee’s Summit Honda later this year.
