2018 Honda Accord wants to make sedans cool again

Cars
While the CRV Crossover has become Honda's best selling model, the japanese auto-maker is still slinging a lot of Accords, with nearly 161,000 finding homes in the first 6 months of 2017, which proves that there are people who still want sedans. And come this fall a new 10th generation Accord will hit dealers, featuring a fresh design, engines and tech. From the outside, the Accord is lower, wider, and shorter in length compared to the current car. A more aggressive fascia with chrome wing grill, shorter overhangs, long hood, and greenhouse pushed further back give it a sportier look and stance. Inside, more comfortable front seats with taller bolsters move inward, providing additional hip, shoulder, and headroom, while backseat leg room increases by 2.5 inches, thanks largely to a longer wheelbase. Base. Things should be quieter in there too with an acoustic laminated windshield and standard noise control system. As for tech, infotainment is handled by an 8-inch display audio touchscreen that thankfully has traditional knobs for both volume and tuning. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities are standard, while wireless charging and 4G LTE in-car wi-fi are options. The Honda Sensing suite of technologies is standard on all 2018 Accords with collision mitigation braking, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and traffic sign recognition. In place of the V6 is a 2-liter turbo 4, with 252 horsepower and 273 pound feet of twist. Which works with a ten speed automatic. The two liter can also be had with a six speed manual on sport editions. A bit later on, a new hybrid will join the lineup as well. Sharper handling comes from a redesigned suspension, with adaptive dampeners, touring trims. And a body made from 54.2% high strength steel, that increases rigidity, and reduces Weight. Depending on model total mass is reduced anywhere from 110 to 176 pounds compared to the outgoing Accord. Pricing for the 2018 Accord isn't available yet. But it shouldn't be too surprising if the new model starts around the $22,450 base price of today's car. And for those who are wondering about the new Accord coupe, I've got bad news. Accord has killed the two-door for the tenth generation, so if you want one, you better run out and claim one of the current Accord coupes while you still can. [BLANK_AUDIO]
