2018 Honda Accord Review
You might have seen the Honda Accord ending up being considered the best car by many online publications that cover vehicles. The Honda Accord line seems to have a name to live up to and it’s probable that the company knows this. Coming to the 2018 Honda Accord, let’s see what it has to offer drivers and if it too can end up being one of the best cars available in the market.
Looking at the exterior of the 2018 Honda Accord you can tell that the design is all about taking the mid-size sedan to the next level. The build is an impressive balance between performance and style. You’ll notice a fastback-like roofline, giving this vehicle an athletic look. The wheelbase is 2.1-inches greater than the previous models, however, the wheel itself is 0.3-inches shorter. Furthermore, the rear and front overhangs are tighter, giving this vehicle a longer appearance. The front grille is definitely the defining feature of this car.
The cabin of the 2018 Honda Accord is spacious and reduces a lot of noise during the drive. It sticks to the series’ traditional look as well as new sophistication. The instrument panel is minimalistic; everything is marked clearly and that’s a good thing. The high-resolution digital display shows trip-computer, navigation, phone, and audio information.
Take note that the rear headroom might make some taller passengers lower their heads more when getting in. The trunk is 17-cubic-foot, offering a lot of storage space. You’ll see high-quality, nicely grained plastics, some soft leather, and even an appealing faux-wood trim. The front seats happen to be well padded and comfortable.
The 2018 Honda Accord has three climate-control dials. There’s a large bin at the center stack’s base that also has a USB port and a 12-volt outlet. You can go for a 7.0-inch infotainment screen or an 8.0-inch one. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard except for the base Accord LX. The trims you can choose from are EX-L, EX, Sport, and Touring.
The vehicle also offers adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and forward-collision warning. You’ll also get a push-button start, LED taillights and headlights, a backup camera. Furthermore, you can also add a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, sunroof, leather upholstery, and ventilated front seats.
