About Honda Accord

One of best-selling sedans in America just got a major overhaul and wow, does it look good. The 2018 Honda Accord banishes the cautious styling of previous generations in favor of a racy coupe-like silhouette, which is good because Honda just killed off the Accord Coupe. A new set of turbocharged 4-cylinder engines replace the previous 4- and 6-cylinder engines, allowing Honda engineers to give the Accord a lower, wider stance. The new Accord’s longer wheelbase improves rear-seat space, so much so that a rear-facing child seat can now fit securely without hitting the front seatback. Honda Sensing brings more standard driver-assist features than are offered with the Toyota Camry, giving the Ohio-built Accord a slight advantage over its longtime nemesis.

"I came out of a 2015 Genesis sedan lease and financed the 2018 Accord Touring the day it went on sale in October 2017. I test drove the 2018 Camry (Toyota missed a lot of the tech the Accord has, making it a no go for me, even in the top trim level...plus the Camry costs more), 2017 CR-V (nice vehicle, but Accord had a few features the CR-V doesnt, like cooled seats and the newer Honda infotainment system), 2017 Mazda CX-5 (nice, but missing some tech), and the 2018 Audi A5 Sportback (super nice, but with a price tag to go along with it...57K). The Accord was the clear winner of the bunch. It is somewhat reminiscent of my Genesis from a tech standpoint, but for 20K less. The Accord is easily the most luxurious feeling midsize family sedan Ive driven, trumping even the Mazda 6. The material and build quality in the cabin is top notch; everything feels great to the touch. The active safety tech works well. The cabin is roomy and visibility is great. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are very useful and work well with Hondas new infotainment system (the 2018 Odyssey is the only other Honda with this new system). The sound system in the Touring is pretty good. Not an enthusiast-level system by any means, but certainly better than most non-luxury car high-end systems Ive heard. The heated and cooled seats work very well. The car is relatively quiet on the highway compared to the competition, although coming from a Genesis which was bank vault-quiet, it seems a bit noisy by comparison. I do mostly highway driving at 77 MPH and have been averaging 34 MPG combined which is good, but not amazing. My car is the Radiant Red Metallic with Ivory leather and the combo is quite striking. Ive been stopped by a few people who cant believe it is an Accord. On the negative side of things: power is just adequate. Its not slow, but compared to competitors with a V-6 or even the upcoming 2.0T Accord, it is a bit underwhelming. If you want performance, wait for the 2.0T at the end of Nov 2017. It is faster than the old V-6 Accord and even the new Camry V-6. The other benefit of the 2.0T will be the 10-speed auto in place of the CVT the 1.5T has. Its is okay as far as CVTs go, but not my favorite kind of transmission. Bottom line: this is without a doubt the best midsize family sedan on the market currently. Toyota tried with the new Camry, but failed pretty hard in my book. The Camrys 8-speed transmission is jerky, the interior is a bit of a chocolate mess, there is no Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, no ventilated seats, and no memory seats at ANY trim level, even the fully loaded XSE V-6 which costs an unbelievable 40K. Every major auto publication comparison test between the two cars has given the Accord the victory at every trim level, so theres no doubt the Accord will continue its reign as the most winning vehicle of all time on Car and Drivers annual 10 Best List."

"I have only owned the 2018 Accord EX for a week and with the stellar 9th generation Accord already in the stable, all I can say is WOW. Every inch of the new car was attended to and revised or improved in a manner that is both sensible and meaningful. Nothing is overdone. Inside the car, the dash layout is high-end and the overall attention to interior detail will challenge cars that cost twice as much. The new entertainment center is easy to use and with the additional two speakers, the sound quality is much improved over the prior generation. The driving position is even better than before and is almost panoramic in nature. For those who prefer to see more of the front of the car from the front seats, youll be pleased to know the newly sculpted hood is very visible without blocking the view of the road. If you did not know better, you might think you were sitting in the front seat of a sports car. While I understand the exterior design might be polarizing (what car isnt), I find it to be a great blend of sportiness and class - again with not being overdone like others in the mid-size class. The LED lighting is beautiful and effective. Fit and finish is terrific. Check out the flush mounted front and rear windows to reduce wind noise and the absence of the trim piece on the roof where it meets the doors. Nice attention to detail. Driving the car is a story in and of itself. Once inside, you are greeted with some music. Push the start button and see the new digital and analog dash come to life. You will notice right away the engine noise is muted and the interior noise levels are noticeably quieter than the 9th generation model. Drop the CVT transmission into drive and the new 1.5 turbo will pull with authority. I still find myself going faster than I thought I was going. The road manners of the car is very controlled and precise. The steering has much more feel than the prior generation. Yes, the ride is a little firm but that firmness is meant to keep the car better planted on the road and thus much safer. Also notice the seats offer better support yet seem more comfortable than before. In summary, the 2018 Accord EX is a loaded vehicle. Compared to the 2017 with sensing, it actually stickers a little less but offers more. If you want a great deal, shop online and let several dealers bid for your business. Use KBB as your guide. I started my search before my car was built and was still able to get a deal that compares to a best deal on the prior model. It was worth the wait."

"Im back and I thought I would help future buyers one more time with a 2500 mile update of my 2018 Accord EX in Radiant Red. Please refer to my initial review with the same title for my first impressions of the car. First off, yes I really did pack on 2500 miles since I took delivery the 1st of November. This is not normal for me but the extra time in the car helps in my evaluation of it. Here we go.. Fuel economy: 32.4 mpg in truly mixed driving. I do not drive the car in an over-aggressive manner and since the 1st week of ownership, I leave the car in econ mode. It is my impression that even the slightest pressure on the gas pedal takes the car out of the green halo around the instrument cluster. I confirmed this with my 2013 EX. Since my fuel economy is good, I suspect the meter is more sensitive than before. I also think a turbo engine under any amount of acceleration, might lend to this. Engine Power: Never felt lacking with the 1.5 liter. I feels stronger than my 2013 the 2.4 liter. Again, most of my driving as been in econ mode. In normal mode or sport its even more fun. Driving Dynamics: Terrific. Handles much better than I would expect a family sedan to handle. Steering is heavier and more responsive than my 2013. Yes, the ride is firmer than the prior generation but that firmness is required to give you the excellent handling and safety the car provides. Imagine how poorly traction or braking controls would work with a spongy ride? Infotainment and Controls: Excellent. Big improvement over the prior generation. Adding two speakers made a big difference to sound quality. Using the apps from the steering wheel or from the touch screen is simple and intuitive. Fit and Finish: You might have noticed I gave it a 9. My hood is a little bit off. Its not quite lined up to the nose of the car and needs an adjustment in my opinion. Ill have it fixed soon. Its a small thing that many people would not even notice but Im picky in that way. No other fit/finish issues. Honda Sensing: I was skeptical of this technology in the beginning but now I am a big fan. None of the features get in the way of your driving experience. They exist to help keep you safe and make you a better driver. On the highway, lane keep assist really does keep the car stable and centered in the lane but it DOES NOT drive the car and it will not allow you to let it drive the car. Take your hand off the wheel for a few seconds and the car will let you know its not safe. I love adaptive cruise control with zero follow. I used it several times and it works flawlessly even in heavy traffic. Brake hold is a favorite feature when driving in stop a go traffic. It gives you some piece of mind knowing that the car will not move if you accidentally slip or remove your foot from the brake pedal. Unless I missed it, I wish this feature can be programmed to stay on. For example, the emergency brake can be programmed to turn on automatically. Walk away lock feature. A great idea and I love using it but I wish it was less sensitive. Its possible to exit the car and walk around to the passenger side and find the car is locked. I need to look at this closer. In summary, this is one heck of a car and I am so glad I held out and waited for the 2018 Accord. I recommend a test ride of this car if you are in the market for a mid-sized sedan. I think you will see right away why the Accord is the best mid-sized sedan available."
