2018 Honda Accord Teases its Sporty Styling

The 2018 Honda Accord will make its official debut July 14.

The Japanese automaker has released a teaser sketch previewing what it calls a “dramatically styled” 10th-generation Accord, promising that the midsize sedan is getting completely remade from ground up. The company also confirmed that the new Accord will feature three powerful and fuel-efficient powertrains, including a pair of new direct-injected turbocharged engines that will be paired with either a new Honda-developed 10-speed automatic transmission, continuously variable transmission, or a six-speed manual, depending on the engine. There will also be a hybrid version powered by Honda’s two-motor hybrid powertrain.

    Front end kinda looks like a Dart or Charger with that style of grill. Not saying that’s a bad thing!
