New seat padding is said to be "high-accuracy" and with variable firmness for comfort and support. A 12-way power-adjustable driver's seat, heated and cooled front seats, and heated rear seats will be available, as well.
An all-new HMI is present in the Accord, which has a new 8-in.
As with the Odyssey, the touchscreen's "app" tiles are customizable in their positioning.
Inside, the 2018 Accord can be positively loaded to the gills with high-end features, although it's not yet clear what equipment will be available on which trims.
Certain models will offer optional head-up windshield display.
There is wireless device charging, automatic Bluetooth phone pairing, 4G LTE in-car Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi-enabled over-the-air system updates, as well as a number of audio system options and USB charging ports.
As announced last month, the big news with '18 Accord's engines is the lack of a V-6. Above this is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 with 252 hp and 273 lb-ft. The engine is based on the 2.0-liter in the hot new HondaCivic Type R, though tuned and refined for use in the Accord. The 2.4-liter I-4 and sweet V6 are both out, replaced by 1.5- and 2.0-liter turbocharged engines, iterations of which were already seen in Civic. Both engines are also available with a six-speed manual. With standard adaptive dampers, a choice of punchy four-cylinder engines, and a six-speed manual, at least on paper, this new Accord stands out from the pack and could well get Honda a bigger chunk of a still-considerable pie.
On the technology front, all 2018 Honda Accords feature Honda Sensing, the brand's suite of advanced driver-assistance technologies. The company did not supply projected fuel economy for any of the models, but promised the new hybrid version will be more fuel efficient than the current one.
Honda said it plans to share details on the new Accord's powertrain, design and new technology at the unveiling Friday morning. The auto will use a next generation of Honda's 2-motor hybrid technology, with a 2.0L Atkinson-cycle engine boasting more than 40% thermal efficiency, the same thermal efficiency as the current Toyota Prius' 1.8L Atkinson-cycle 4-cyl. Otherwise it's a ten-speed automatic, which Honda claims is 22 pounds lighter and has a 68 percent wider ratio range, meaning better gearing for a standing start and cruising on the highway. The overall passenger volume of 105.7 cubic feet is an increase of 2.5 cubic feet, and there is more trunk space.
The specs are just as much of a throwback as the body style. Sadly, the automaker has confirmed that the Accord Coupe won't be making a return. Its wheelbase has been stretched by a little more than two inches, though it is more than half an inch lower. The Accord 4-door's length also is lessened a bit. According to Honda, the vehicle is longer, lower, lighter, and wider than before, featuring a lower seating position and less overhangs than the ninth-generation auto.
The Accord is more connected than ever. The materials used and new design help improve rigidity, crash strength, and reduce total vehicle weight by between 110 and 176 pounds depending on the model. If the seal is compromised, substances like road salt or water can short the sensor, potentially leading to a fire.
As it has for the past 35 years, Accords will continue to be screwed together in Marysville, Ohio.
