Overview

What's New in the 2018 Honda Accord?

The Honda Accord was completely redesigned for 2018. It features a dramatic new design with a coupe-like fastback roofline and a higher-quality interior boasting much improved electronics. New turbocharged engines highlight the mechanical changes. Note that the Accord Coupe has been discontinued.

Which Accord is the Best?

Even the cheapest base Accord comes with the full gamut of high-tech safety features and a generous amount of equipment. However, we think most people will find the Sport and EX go above and beyond to provide an impressively elevated experience for a midsize sedan. They're more expensive, sure, but we think your friends will think you spent considerably more. Find a Honda Accord for sale

Competition

2018 Honda Accord vs the competition

2018 Toyota Camry -- Also all-new for 2018, the Camry is available in a diverse variety of trim levels that cater to diverse buyer tastes. Its available engines are also fundamentally different. We think both the Accord and the Camry should be closely considered. 2018 Mazda Mazda6 -- The Mazda6 isn't all-new for 2018, but it was significantly overhauled to provide sharper handling, a new turbocharged engine upgrade and a quieter, higher-quality cabin. Long ignored, the Mazda6 nevertheless deserves a look. 2018 Ford Fusion -- The Fusion boasts a similar turbocharged engine lineup to the Accord, along with its own attractive styling, high-quality interior and sharp handling. It's also available in hybrid, luxury (Platinum trim) and performance variations. Used Lexus ES -- If you're seeking a large, premium car that won't suffer from typical luxury car reliability issues, the ES is a great choice. It's far pricier when new, so checking out a used or certified pre-owned one is smart.
