Now that we've looked at the Mazda6 and the new Camry, it's time to point the camera at the 2018 Honda Accord with the new 2-liter turbo motor and advanced safety tech.

      Trying to decide if I like those Wheels or not. I loved the Accord Sport Rims from 2016 and 2017, but all the Methheads were stealing those off of people’s cars

    • Perhaps
      Perhaps

      @10:00
      "0 MPH to 60 MPH test"
      -- Traction Control should have been turned off (it is on by default).
      -- The camera should have been on the road for that acceleration test -- not on your face.

      @10:44
      "All Sport mode really does is it re-maps the throttle and also tightens up those adaptive shocks."
      Sport mode holds lower gears longer, to make the throttle more responsive.
      Sport mode increases the turbo boost, for better acceleration.

      "It doesn't give you more horsepower."
      That is true, but needs clarification.
      Sport mode allows the car to use 100% of its power (without getting into aftermarket HonData modifications). It allows the car to use 100% of the power that the car comes with from the factory.
      The other modes reduce performance, in favor of better fuel economy (and softer ride).

      So although Sport mode does not give you more power (than what the car comes with), it does give you more power than the other two modes, because the other two mode reduce power (both via turbo boost and transmission shift points).

      If you drive the car in either Econ or the default mode for a while, and then shift to Sport mode, you will feel the car wake up.
      Perhaps more noticeable is if you drive in Sport mode for a while, and then switch to one of the other modes, you will feel the car ease up.

      "...not much of a difference between Econ and Sport, in terms of 0 MPH to 60 MPH times"
      Sport mode holds lower gears longer, and increases the turbo boost.

      @12:35
      "This one has Lane Detection"
      It works only when driving between 45 MPH and 90 MPH.
      It will make only minor adjustments. If you start to cross the line on a turn, you are going to cross the line. The Lane Detection system will not make more than minor adjustments.

      Note mentioned in this review is that those 19" wheels, with their low profile tires (meaning less sidewall), in combination with the way Honda tuned the suspension, results in a sedan that really grips the road during hard turns. Those tires will stay planted much better than most people think, and will hold sharp turns at speeds most people would never try. It is not like a mid-engine Corvette. But it is very, very good (but do not drive like a nut -- even a million dollar Ferrari will lose control if pushed too hard).

      Lastly, the brakes are very, very good.
      They are silky smooth, and slow the car down with ease. They will probably save many people from accidents, when they had to stop short.

      The Accord (Sport and Touring) is a great car. It is a blast to drive, and it is comfortable. The stereo, however, is so-so.
      The other Accord styles are probably also very good. I have not driven them. For performance, the 19" wheels (available only on the Sport and Touring) is a must.


      Cheers!

      Honda missed the mark by not offering leather with a 6-speed manual transmission. Kind of like keeping rough roads made of brick while asphalt has been around for decades.

      Econ has nothing to do with the suspension. Econ adjust the throttle, transmission,climate control and cruise control to get better gas mileage while cruising at highway speeds. I am a multi Accord owner and own the exact vehicle you are driving.

      After owning my Accord 2L Touring for a year now I can pretty much agree with the review. Cons: transmission shifts too much from the start ,it's inconvenient not to be able to open the back doors hands free, must either open the front doors with touch or use the remote and the ride IS a bit noisy. Only 3 cons is pretty good. The safety features as well as the occasional hands free driving are great. Safety has already saved me from a couple of potential bad incidents, and, on long drives, I"ve gone as much as 5-6 miles without any personal control of the vehicle and it's worked great. Heads up display is a big plus. My last 5 vehicles were Lexus ES which I was getting tired of so I tried the Accord. No, it's not a Lexus but I've been very happy with the Accord as a change of pace.

      Decent review, but he did say some things which weren't totally accurate. He said the mpg has increased with the Turbo and that's not true. For example, they rated the V-6 at 34 mph hwy.

      I was hoping he would comment on the transmission. I have a 2018 Toyota Camry XLE V-6 and I really like it overall, but after a year I still get frustrated with the transmission having some real flat spots. I went from a 2015 Camry V-6 with a very smooth 6-speed to the 10 speed, which the Accord has also. I guess I will have to find out for myself to know for sure. My guess is that the Accord shifts more smoothly than the Camry. As the weather warms up I'll have to go to a dealer and take one for a ride. Now that my Camry is over a year old, they won't tell me to get lost and think I am just wasting their time.

      When I went to the Honda Dealer about a year and a half ago, the redesigned 2018 Accords weren't coming out for some months so I bought the Camry.
