Honda took the wraps off the 10th-generation 2018 Honda Accord sedan, revealing a radical new look and a number of surprising changes, including the deletion of the Accord's V6 engine option. But don't worry, the retail best-selling midsize sedan in America still has plenty of power, with a choice of two new direct-injection turbocharged engines. Standard is a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder good for 192 horsepower and mated to either a CVT automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. Replacing last year's V6 is a 252-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged engine derived from the sporty Civic Type R. This engine can be paired with either a 6-speed manual or all-new 10-speed automatic transmission, a first for a front-wheel-drive car. The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid returns using a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder and twin electric motor setup. Sadly, there will be no 10th-generation Accord Coupe.

The 2018 Honda Accord sedan is lower, wider and has a longer wheelbase than the outgoing model, yet its body is shorter, lighter and more rigid. Dramatic styling banishes all commentary of cautious design, with a sweeping greenhouse set further back on the body, a long hood and rather menacing front end. The design not only makes the new Accord look more like a premium sport sedan, it allows for two additional inches of rear-seat legroom. Overall passenger volume is up by 2.5 cu ft., and trunk space up by nearly 1 cu ft. The Accord Hybrid has its battery pack moved below the floor, permitting it the same spacious trunk and 60/40 folding rear seats as the gasoline model.

Inside the cabin, Honda has created a much more upscale environment, with more soft-touch surfaces and available features such as heated and ventilated front seats, a 12-way power driver's seat, 8-in Display Audio with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a head-up display and wireless device charging. On the safety front, every new Accord will come standard with the Honda Sensing driver-assist suite, which includes collision-mitigation braking, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control and road-departure mitigation. Underneath the new Accord, Honda has improved the overall driving dynamics and comfort with a re-engineered suspension that includes an adaptive damper system that can adjust the car's shock settings every 1/500 of a second.

The 2018 Accord sedan will be offered in six trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi and Touring. Models with the 2.0-liter engine are limited to the Sport, EX-L, EX-L Navi and Touring. The Accord Hybrid will be available in five trims: Hybrid, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi and Touring. Sport trims with either engine will offer a short-throw 6-speed manual transmission. Look for the new Accord sedan to arrive at dealerships this fall.
