With new modular design and a more powerful turbo engine, the Honda Accord 2018 will be more expensive than the global current-generation model.
The Honda Accord 2018 will feature a new modular design, and look sleeker and sportier than the 9th-gen model.
While the 9th-generation Honda Accord is all set to make its official comeback in India, during festive season, the carmaker has already started working on the 10th-generation model of the saloon. A camouflaged prototype of the Honda Accord 2018 was recently spotted testing outside India. Since it will be the 10th-generation model, the new Accord will feature Honda’s new modular design.
Engine options on offer could be a base 4-cylinder (either petrol or diesel), and a 2.4-litre, 4-cylinder i-VTEC petrol with electric motor that will debut on the 2016 Accord. The hybrid power mill produces a combined power output of 196bhp and 306Nm of torque. There are talks that the saloon might ditch the V-6 powertrain for a more powerful turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.
Coming to the design, the Honda Accord 2018 appears inspired from the 10th-generation Civic. One can notice Honda’s latest generation sleeker and sportier design. The saloon carries an angular front fascia and fastback roof that instantly reminds of the new Civic. Though, it will be bigger and more spacious than its sibling. The sedan’s new-gen model will be lighter and stiffer than ever before.
Though there is no official confirmation about its launch, the Accord’s 2018 year model is likely debut in the second half of the next year. The saloon’s new-gen model is likely to feature a powerful turbo engine along with new modular design and more features. These upgrades will certainly make it a more worthy deal.
