The Honda's 10th generation family sedan, Accord 2018 was launched loaded with new technology and various features which are hard to be found in any other low budget car.

Most brands might save their best features for their expensive models but Honda surprised the Auto lovers when the Japanese giant launched the latest version of Accord in Detroit in July.

Jeff Conrad, senior vice president of the auto division at American Honda while explaining the reason for adding such high-end features to Accord said, "As we’re looking at technology that we can mature and bring online in time for a product’s introduction, Accord is the perfect candidate for it because it’s such an important car for us."

Despite the overall shorter length and height, this Accord version has a bigger and better wheelbase along with 10 mm lower center of gravity. Honda has given Accord 2018 a more aggressive appeal in comparison to its earlier versions.

Accord's two versions with 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter turbocharged fours make 192 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque and a turbo four producing 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque respectively.

Buyers are given an option between choosing a continuously variable automatic transmission or a six-speed manual which is the Sport trim model.

Honda claims the version provides better gearing and cruising through the highway due to being ten-speed automatic, which is 22 pounds lighter and has a 68 percent wider ratio range.

The vehicle has improved rigidity and crash strength due to the usage of high-strength steel structural adhesives in its manufacturing. This helped in the overall weight reduction of the car by 110 and 176 pounds for respective models.

Apart from the added trunk space and rear legroom, the addition of LED head and fog lights gives the car a more sporty look.
