Meet Honda's 10th-generation family sedan — Honda Accord

2015 Honda Accord Honda

TheStreet raised Honda Motor Company from a c+ rating to a b- rating in a research report on Friday, April 28th. The action affects Accords produced between 2013 and 2016. Equities research analysts forecast that Honda Motor Company will post $2.76 EPS for the current year. It looks longer, lower, and wider than the outgoing model with a steep fastback-style roof.

It will also see better and be more visible, with LED headlights, fog lights and taillights. The recall covers more than 1.5 million cars worldwide. The driver's seat is now an inch lower than before and rear passengers enjoy an extra 2.5 inches of leg room. The new seats feature improved shoulder bolsters and more heavily padded armrests. A 12-way power-adjustable driver's seat, heated and cooled front seats, and heated rear seats will be available, as well.

Inside, drivers get a seven-inch TFT "driver's meter", along Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility as standard. There are a number of customizable tiles for various apps. Upper trim models come with a 6-inch heads-up display that shows a speedometer, tachometer, and navigation. The third is the latest version of Honda's two-mode hybrid system.

This perennially popular midsize offering gains turbocharged engines, a more rigid structure, an advanced 10-speed automatic gearbox, and even a physical volume knob for the audio system.

Further cutting consumption is a pair of downsized, turbocharged engines. The '17 Accord Hybrid, which returned to Honda's lineup after a yearlong hiatus, makes 48 mpg (4.9 L/100 km) combined, short of the 50-mpg (4.7 L/100 km) Prius. The new 2.0-liter turbo-four makes 26 fewer hp than the V-6, but torque is up by 21 lb-ft - and fuel efficiency should increase substantially. This is no penalty. (260 Nm) of torque from 1,500-5,000 rpm, and a 2.0L DOHC DI turbo, closely related to the mill in the new Civic Type R, churning out 252 hp at 6,500 rpm and 273 lb. -ft.

The 1.5-liter Accord will be available in six trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi, and Touring. Honda will continue to use a continuously variable transmission for the Accord's base engine, although it claims updates to the CVT yield an 11 percent lower ratio than before.

The 2018 Accord arrives with three powertrain options, with drive going to the front wheels only for all of them. Production returns to OH after moving to Japan for the past few years. Interestingly, they use magnets that contain no heavy, rare-earth metals. That means no trunk space is lost and the rear seats can still fold down.

Overall, the Accord is between 110 and 176 pounds lighter, depending on specification. The same changes means body rigidity is up. Aluminum is used in the L-shaped control arms for the Macpherson-strut front suspension, as well as for the front subframe. An adaptive damper system and fluid-filled bushings should help improve ride quality.

To start with, we know that the Honda Accord will be coming in with an upgraded design. This includes automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warnings, road-departure mitigation, and adaptive cruise with low-speed follow. A rearview camera is standard equipment on all models, too.

Production of the entire Accord range will take place at a plant in Marysville, Ohio.
