2018 All-New Honda Accord To Debut Soon With 10 A/T

Honda will debut the all-new 2018 Honda Accord in the United States later this year, featuring two turbocharged engines, an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission and six-speed manual for the turbocharged engines. On top of that, the upcoming Accord will also receive Honda's new dual-motor hybrid powertrain.

The 2018 Honda Accord will be available with three powertrains, which includes two direct-injected and turbocharged four-cylinder engines. The first being the 1.5-litre DOHC Turbo with dual variable cam timing (dual VTC) that is currently found in the Civic. This engine can be mated to a Honda CVT or six-speed manual. The second engine option is a 2.0-litre direct-injection DOHC Turbo with i-VTEC mated to either a 10-speed automatic or six-speed manual. Honda says that the 10AT is an industry's first for a front wheel drive passenger vehicle. Last but not least is the new dual-motor hybrid powertrain, which is able to operate without the use of an automatic transmission, similar to the outgoing Accord PHEV's i-MMD powertrain.

Photos of a camouflaged prototype was released by Honda, though that does little to reveal the new Accord's design. However, Honda did say that the new Accord will gain a lower and wider appearance for a more aggressive stance. 

Honda added that more details on the all-new 2018 Honda Accord will be released in the coming weeks. 

11 months after its global debut in the US, and 9 months after reaching US showrooms only we received the all-new Honda Civic.
