For more than 40 years, Americans have loved the Honda Accord. However, for the 2018 model year, the sedan enters its best stage yet. In fact, the redesigned 2018 Honda Accord was named the Free Press Car of the Year.
The Critics Say.
Mark Phelan, an automotive critic for the Detroit Free Press, said, “The sleek 2018 Accord raises the bar for a class of vehicles that remains important to hundreds of thousands of buyers every year.”
The redesigned Accord is praised for its lighter, stiffer platform, a new lineup of turbocharged engines, and standard Honda Sensing active safety features. Making the Accord even more user-friendly is its return to buttons and dials for climate and audio control.
As the first turbocharged engine in the Accord, its 1.5-liter four-cylinder is an impressive piece of machinery. It is rated at 192 horsepower and delivers an EPA-estimated 38 mpg on the highway.* For even more performance, there is a 252-horsepower 2.0-liter engine that still gets an estimated 34 mpg on the highway.*
Every Accord comes standard with Honda Sensing that includes traffic sign recognition, forward collision alert, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane keeping assist, and automatic emergency braking.
