  • 2018 Honda Accord is here, now as Mark 10

This engine will in turn power Honda's continuosly variable automatic transmission (CVT) powertrain or in Sport trim, to a CVT or 6-speed manual transmission (6MT). The Hybrid version hasn't been detailed yet, other than knowing it has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder running on the Atkinson cycle and two electric motors.

It is still uncertain when the tenth-gen Accord will come to the Indian market since the current-generation Honda Accord Hybrid was launched in India only in 2016.

According to a January report from Busines Insider, the Honda Accord is the ninth best-selling vehicle in the United States, with 345,225 Accords sold to Americans in 2016 alone.

In the case of changes in the outer body, the new accord has a sportier, sharp and elegant look. The latter option produces 26 less horsepower than the 3.5-liter V6 it replaces but makes 21 more lb./ft. of torque that the New York Daily News claims is more evenly spread-out across the Accord's rev range.

"The 2018 Accord's lighter chassis features a new Macpherson strut front suspension with L-shaped aluminum control arms mounted to an all-aluminum front subframe", Honda said.

The wheelbase has been elongated in the 2018 model by 50mm and the width has also been increased by 10mm, while the roofline is lower by 15mm. The new generation Accord will have two driving modes - Normal and Sport along with Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spots Monitoring and Cross Traffic & Driver Awareness Monitoring. While the deliveries of the 2018 Honda Accord will start soon in the US.

Green vehicle enthusiasts will be happy to learn that the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid is even more refined than before and powered by Honda's third-generation hybrid system delivering better fuel economy than the outgoing model.
