All-new 10th generation Honda Accord boasts advanced new powertrain lineup.
Honda will be bringing the latest version of the popular Accord to market later this year with three new powertrains, including two direct-injected and turbocharged 4-cylinder engines.
A 1.5-litre direct-injected Turbo with dual variable cam timing (dual VTC) will be mated to either a Honda continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) or 6-speed manual transmission, while a 2.0-litre direct-injected DOHC Turbo with i-VTEC valve train will be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission–the industry’s first 10AT for a front-wheel-drive passenger car–or a 6-speed manual.
In addition, an all-new Accord Hybrid will be powered by the next-generation of Honda’s two-motor hybrid technology, which operates without the use of a conventional automatic transmission.
Honda says the new Accord will have a dramatically lower and wider appearance that creates a more aggressive and athletic stance. Additional details on the all-new 2018 Accord design, technology and performance will be released in the weeks ahead.
