  • The Honda Accord for the Year 2018 is a Stunner to Look at and Drive

It seems to be the case that the Honda Accord for the year 2018 is a stunner both to look at and drive down a winding road.

The Honda Accord entered the world scene in 1976. It lies at a close second to the longest selling vehicle of the same brand which has been none other than the Honda Civic.

For a time span of 42 years, it has remained a common name bandied around the households of America not to mention the rest of the world. US sales have exceeded 13 million units. The current Accord is better than the best and it has been selling like hotcakes since the past half a dozen years.

While the Accord has its home in Japan, it was manufactured in America. The car has been famous for introducing low emissions technology which is a boon for the environment.

The 2018 Accord is a mid-size sedan. It is a novel vehicle with a lower center of gravity. Also its structure is lighter and more rigid. The chassis is more complex than it looks like at first blush. Besides a turbocharged engine, there is a 10 speed automatic transmission and twin motor hybrid system at its core.

This vehicle has a lot of sex appeal and defies other cars that share their dimensions with it. It has a luxurious and spacious interior. Connectivity is there and the driver assistance is available as well. The car is fun to drive indeed. Everything about it has been re-engineered.
