New Honda Accord 2018.

it Had been many months that our photographers are not faced with one of the units of the new Accord 2018. It was in the early days of last autumn, when we could peer into its interior for the first time, that it was so heavily camouflaged as its exterior.

At that moment the mules of the Accord, had a thicker camouflage black, which just left space to be able to see the new forms of the model. In this case, Honda has endowed it with some test units of the usual camouflage, comprising black and white vinyl, which allows us to see for the first time her features.

If last year we could see how the Accord went down at a certain size, approaching the Civic sedan, on this occasion, we can see that in addition to a size more similar to the model of the C-segment, the Accord share the traits pioneered by the Civic of the latest generation.

Smaller and features already seen in other models of Honda.

The next generation of Accord no longer have two different variants, that the the japanese brand has been removed from its catalogue in Europe, in favor of the models of cutting SUV. So the model that we are seeing in these images corresponds to the variant that is sold in markets such as the us.

The Accord 2018 will have a new platform, shared with the new Civic, so it is smaller than the sedan outgoing. Therefore, the two models share many elements, such as the new 4-cylinder engines supercharged, so that will wait until the version of six-cylinder engine today.

we Find again a hybrid version, which will be the evolution of the current Accord Hybrid 2017, which has a combustion engine of 4-cylinder and 2.0-liter combined with an electric motor with a combined output of 212 hp. The presentation of this new generation will be in the autumn of this year, probably during the Hall of Los Angeles 2017.
