2018 Honda Accord – Hartford
Hartford Honda Dealers Are Talking About the 2018 Accord
Everyone has been talking about the redesigned 2018 Honda Accord. According to area Hartford Honda Dealers, the new Accord now packs more technology than ever before. Seductive exterior styling and a roomier backseat make this best-selling midsize family sedan even more rewarding to drive. You now have six feature-packed trims to choose from: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi and Touring.
The 2018 Accord has lost some length and height, and it’s lighter, too. It’s also slightly wider and the wheelbase is now longer. All this adds up to a roomier interior for passengers as well as cargo. Legroom has been increased by 2 inches, and the Accord’s 16.7 cubic feet of trunk space makes it the most spacious trunk in its segment.
Powering the Accord is a standard turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 192 horsepower and 192 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to a standard continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The Sport gets an optional short-throw, six-speed manual gearbox.
The Sport, EX-L, EX-L Navi and Touring trims have an available turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 252 hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque, teamed to a new 10-speed automatic. The six-speed manual is optional on the Sport trim.
Hartford Honda Dealers Agree With KBB The Accord Is The Best Overall Buy
The 2018 Honda Accord was chosen as the Overall Best Buy of 2018 by Kelley Blue Book. On the road, the Accord delivers plenty of driving excitement. Even the base engine delivers solid performance. Boasting a recorded zero-to-60 time of 5.8 seconds, the 2.0-liter engine delivers especially strong acceleration. Balanced handling is also among the Accord’s strong points. Featuring adaptive suspension dampers, the Accord Touring can carve corners like a genuine sports sedan.
Longtime Honda fans will immediately notice the Accord’s more aerodynamic styling. A lower and wider stance enhances the sedan’s commanding road presence. Honda’s stunning Jewel Eye headlamps give the new Accord a special touch. Flaunting a powerful-looking set of 19-inch alloy wheels and a rear spoiler, the Accord Sport definitely makes a bold statement. Heated and ventilated front seats come standard on the top-of-the-line Touring trim.
The 2018 Honda Accord comes loaded with an impressive number of high-tech goodies. Key highlights include a multi-view backup camera, a 7.0-inch display and push button start. All models other than the base LX, get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard. EX-L and Touring models get a standard 450-watt stereo system that will appeal to music lovers.
For years, excellent crash protection has remained a hallmark for the Accord. The 2017 Accord received the highest rating of five stars in overall testing from the NHTSA. We expect the same results for the 2018 Accord.
You’ll appreciate the sedan’s standard Honda Sensing safety package, which provides an array of advanced driving aids. The new Traffic Sign Recognition technology provides drivers with a higher level of awareness on the road. Meanwhile, automatic braking brings you to a quick halt during emergency situations. Some of the other standard safety innovations include road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control and lane departure intervention. Blind-spot monitoring is standard on the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims.
