The All New 2018 Honda Accord

The Honda Accord has been a household name since it was first introduced in 1976. It has gone through 9 generational changes across 42 model years. Over the years, American car buyers have purchased more the 13 million Honda Accords. The 9th generation Accord has been the top selling midsize car in America from 2011 to 2016. With current sales staying on trend, it is likely the Honda accord will retain this title in 2017. American car buyers have come to trust the reliability and resale value that Honda Accord offers.

Honda will introduce the 10th generation of the Accord this fall. The new Accord is completely redesigned. It is built on a lighter and more sophisticated chassis that has a lower and wider stance. The unibody structure is lighter and more rigid which offers better handling and performance and improved fuel efficiency. The new 10th generation Accord will also offer its most powerful powertrain yet with a new turbocharged engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission.
