Checking the tech in the 2018 Honda Accord HybridAn intuitive touchscreen infotainment system with lots of physical controls makes everything from navigation to syncing your phone straightforward in the newest Accord.
[MUSIC] This is the 2018 Honda called Hybrid and we're gonna take a look at all the technology that's packed into this efficient Mid-sized sedan. This is one of our favorite infotainment systems in new cars today. It's an 8-inch touchscreen supplemented by real physical volume and tuning knobs plus a lot of physical shortcut buttons to make things easier to jump between modes. It's really quick and responsive, and very very easy to use. I especially like that up top I've got little shortcut buttons that help me jump to navigation, or the radio, or choose a different audio source. The built in navigation uses Garmin software and for the most part it's pretty easy to use and responsive. You can pinch to zoom on the maps and finding a destination, whether by typing an address or looking up a point of interest, is pretty straight forward. And if you don't like the built in software, you can always sync up your smart phone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to use those navigation apps. Being the touring model, we've also got a Wi-Fi hotspot as well as wireless phone charging, although there are only two USB ports in the cabin. You also get a color head up display that gives me my speed and navigation information right in my line of sight. In addition to the touchscreen, you can scroll through more information on the left-hand side of the instrument cluster. You can use this knob and buttons on the steering wheel to go through Navigation, Audio, Phone, trip computer information. You can even change your audio source while you're in that and all that sound is being played through our ten-speaker sound system rated for 450 Watts. There is a ton of active safety technology in here too, starting on the stirring wheel I can turn on and off the adapter for cruise control and the lane keep assist. And then this button near my left knee brings up a short cut menu to turn on and off features like blind spot monitor, pre-collision warning and breaking, and the driver attention monitor. And that's a rundown of all the technology in the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid. For the full review make sure to visit theroadshow.com [MUSIC]
