Honda Accord Touring Hybrid 2018 Sophisticated Sedan Design – The new 2018 Honda Accord Touring Hybrid will lead in dynamic style, leading-in fuel economy in its class, large rear seats, and Honda’s reputation for excellence as well for this trip. Even the Accord Hybrid for those looking for superior fuel economy. The 2018 Honda Accord Touring Hybrid has a new adaptive suspension, while other trims offer the latest infotainment and smartphone integration. Honda Accord Touring Hybrid 2018 expands from three trim to five and has a lower starting price than previous versions.
Honda Accord 2018 is slightly shorter but lower and wider than the previous car. Low veil enhances aerodynamics, aided by aerodynamic aerodynamic undercarriage and, at 1.5 EX trim, active grille window. Wheelbase Honda Accord 2018 is also longer and trajectory wider. The result is a very tempting Accord that just looks better when you trim the trim. Sport wearing 19-inch black-chrome wheels, LED fog lights and rear spoiler, while Touring trims get full-LED headlamps, adaptive dampers, and front and rear parking sensors. Thanks to some smart repackaging, the 2018 Honda Accord Touring Hybrid now offers the same luggage space of 16.7 cubic feet and folded the rear seats as found in the Accord sedan.
The Honda Accord 2018 offers a more spacious and sophisticated new interior of the 2017 model. The front and center is an 8-inch infotainment screen available with large colored tiles, and pinch, swipe and zoom functions. The spacious rear seats offer plenty of legroom and can be fitted with a seat heater, but unfortunately there is no USB or additional power port. Up front, there is more space in all directions and the controls are logically arranged and easy to operate. One oddity is the push-button button selector located right next to the cup holder. We’ve all had spills on the move, causing us to question the wisdom of placing flat panel controllers so close to potential liquid disasters.
In typical Honda mode, options are given by trim. The move to the EX trim provides blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert, power moonroof, remote start, heated front seats and air vents in the rear seats. EX-L includes leather seats, 450-watt audio system, and 4-way passenger seats. Trim Touring adds navigation (optional on EX-L), Full-LED headlamps, head-up display, wireless phone charging, HondaLink Assist, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, rain vacuum wipers, front and back parking sensor. The Honda Accord Touring Hybrid 2018 fits quite nicely with their non-hybrid counterpart, although there is no Sport trim.
The Honda Accord sedan for 2018 offers a choice of two turbocharged 4 cylinder engines. The standard is a 1.5 liter turbo for 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque, a 7-horsepower increase compared to a 2.4-liter engine last year. Optional on Sport, EX, and Touring is a 2.0-liter turbo that pumps 252 horsepower, a real 26 horsepower loss compared to the previous 3.5-liter V6. However, the 2.0-liter carries an additional 21 lb-ft of torque to the table, which are all available at a much lower rpm. All trims with a 1.5 liter engine are mated to a CVT automatic transmission, with the exception of Sport which offers a 6-speed manual option. The 2.0-liter is paired with Honda’s new 10-speed automatic, again the only exception being the 6-speed manual Sport gearbox. Honda Accord Touring Hybrid 2018 uses the previous generation 2.0-liter gasoline engine and electric motor settings, as well as CVT transmission.
