2018 Honda Accord: Little Details – Video

Editor’s note: You may also be interested in reading Autotrader’s 2018 Honda Accord review.


Honda is in the midst of a record-setting sales run that dates back to 2013. The company has many 1st place slots in the automotive world, including the number one subcompact SUV (the Honda HR-V), the number one minivan (Honda Odyssey), the number one SUV (Honda CR-V), the number one midsize sedan (Honda Accord) and the number one overall car in the U.S. (Honda Civic). If you look at just the Accord, more than 13 million have been sold in America, and, according to Honda, more than 11 million of those were built in the United States.

In addition, the Honda Accord alone outsells 30 other brands’ entire American lineup. At a recent press event introducing the Accord, Honda quoted Urban Science Retail Sales data saying that as of August 2017, the Accord sells more cars annually than the total number of vehicles sold per brand like Acura, Audi, Buick, Dodge, Lexus, Mercedes, Porsche and Volkswagen.

So the 2018 Honda Accord is important for both Honda and for American shoppers. By now you’ve heard plenty about the all-new 2018 Honda Accord, but here are a few little details that make it a car you WANT to own, not just a car you OUGHT to own.

Accord Sport

Of course, you can still get a sport version, but now buyers can pick between two engines: a 192-horsepower 1.5-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine or a 252-hp 2.0-litere turbo four. Both engines can be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. That’s right, you can now get the biggest, most powerful engine offered with a manual transmission.

Cool Touches

The 2018 Accord Touring has three driving modes: Normal, sport and econ. When you change between them, the instrument panel changes accordingly.

When you adjust the temperature, a ring around the climate control knobs change color as you adjust the temperature up or down — blue for cooler, red for warmer.

Even the start button is kind of cool — with the key in the car, depress the clutch in a manual transmission car and the button lights up. Start the car and it turns red.

Finally, the new Accord has active noise cancelling, making the interior very quiet — even on the highway. EX trims and above also have noise reducing wheels.
