Bigger 2018 Honda Accord Spied with Sleeker Profile
The 2018 Honda Accord will grow in size, just like the Honda Civic.
Spy photographers have caught the 2018 Honda Accord prototype testing and it appears that the new Accord will take some styling cues from the new-generation Civic. Although it is heavily camouflaged, there are visible hints that the Accord will have a sleeker body, but a more angular design language than the Civic, most noticeably up front. Underpinning the new Accord will be a larger version of the architecture used on the Civic and the next-generation CR-V. Honda’s platform is similar to Volkswagen’s versatile MQB modular architecture, which helps the automaker cut costs thanks to economies of scale.
Expect to see the 2018 Honda Accord make its debut sometime next year, powered by more fuel-efficient engines. If you can’t wait, however, Honda has just introduced the all-new 2017 Honda AccordHybrid that delivers a total system output of 212 horsepower while returning 49 mpg in the city and 47 mpg on the highway.
