Crossovers and SUVs might be where the money is these days, but automakers aren't abandoning hope for sedans. Enter the 2018 Honda Accord. New from the ground up, the redesigned, 10th-generation Accord now comes with a 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder engine standard, good for 192 hp and 192 pounds-feet of torque. The V-6 option, as well as the coupe variant, did not make the cut for the 2018 model year. Here's what people are saying about the redesigned Accord.
"The proportions immediately bring to mind the Dodge Charger: muscular, long hood and short deck, greenhouse moved rearward to make it look like it's a rear-wheel drive car (it's not, that part hasn't changed). But the crisp lines, low front end and sweeping roofline make it seem like Honda's taken a page from the Audi A7 stylebook.
"It's a strikingly different look for the Accord, and it's damned attractive -- it no longer looks like any number of anonymous mid-size sedans on the road. If this remains the best-selling car in the segment, I'll be thrilled, as it means the streets of America are about to get better-looking.
"Inside, the changes are less dramatic. Interior quality is very good, with soft-touch materials and most controls within easy, viewable reach. The gauges are comprised of an electronic display screen, but they're very clear and look classy."
