Right now, everything we know about the 2018 Accord involves the powertrain. Honda ditched the V6 for 2018, opting for a pair of turbocharged I4 engines instead.

Both standalone gas engines will be offered with a six-speed manual. The 1.5-liter is likely to come with a CVT also, as it does in the Civic. The 2.0-liter, on the other hand, will come paired to a new 10-speed automatic -- the first time a 10-speed has come connected to a front-wheel-drive car., and we walked away impressed.
