Honda Accord 2018 vs Honda Accord 2019

Dramatic Design of Reimagined 2019 Honda Accord Signals New Direction for America’s Retail Best-Selling Midsize Sedan

Next-generation Honda design, packaging and proportion
Interior space and quality that exceeds the midsize class
New powertrain lineup: turbocharged and electrified performance
Lighter, more rigid body and new chassis design
Honda Sensing® technology standard on all models and trims
New Accord Hybrid to be made in Ohio

The 10th-generation Accord is new from the ground up and features a lighter and more rigid body structure, an advanced new chassis design, two all-new, high-torque direct-injected and turbocharged engines, the world’s first 10-speed automatic transmission for a front-drive car and a new generation of Honda’s two-motor hybrid technology, along with a host of new safety, driver-assistive and connected-car technologies – all wrapped in a more sophisticated, sleek and athletic design with top class interior space and comfort.

“We are redefining the Honda Accord for a new generation of buyers by bringing something unexpected that challenges the idea of what a mainstream sedan can be,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president of the Automobile Division of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Even as we advance core values like great driving dynamics, safety performance and efficiency, the distinctive design of this all-new 2018 Honda Accord will help it appeal to both head and heart in equal measure.”

Next-Generation Accord Design and Packaging
In reimagining the Accord for its 10th-generation rebirth, Honda designers and engineers went back to the fundamentals of proportion and stance with a sporting and athletic appearance, like a sprinter in the blocks. The approach reinvigorates classic Honda design principles, such as a low and wide body, expansive visibility and sporty seating position, and then translating them into a thoroughly modern, sporty and premium Accord sedan design.

The new Accord features a longer wheelbase (+2.16 inches), a lower overall height (-0.59 inch) and wider (+0.39 inch) body, wider wheel tracks (+0.20 in. front, +0.79 in. rear), a shortened overall length (-0.39 inch) and lower, sportier seating position (-1.0 inch front and -0.79 inch back). A sweeping greenhouse positioned farther back on the body completes the new stance and proportion of the next-generation Accord. The combined effect of these changes is a more premium look, highlighted by shorter overhangs, a bold front fascia, a long and low hood, and a visual center of gravity moved closer to the rear wheels.

Viewed head-on, the new Accord’s greenhouse also angles in more dramatically from the window sills to the roof, further emphasizing the wide lower body, while inside the cabin the seats have been moved slightly inward that contributes to improved hip, shoulder and head room while enhancing occupants’ freedom of movement. Also, the longer wheelbase allowed designers to move the second-row seats substantially rearward, giving Accord almost 2 extra inches of rear leg room to offer one of the most spacious rear seating areas in its class. Overall passenger volume is increased by 2.5 cubic feet to 105.7 (based on LX). Trunk space has also been increased by nearly one cubic foot on the 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter engine powered Accords and by 3.2 cubic feet on the Accord Hybrid to a top level 16.7 cubic feet (+0.9 cu.ft.).

Elegant and modern exterior detailing compliments the Accord’s new, more dynamic design. The bold and upright front fascia is highlighted by Honda’s signature chrome wing front grille positioned above a large main air intake and flanked by available 9-lamp full-LED headlights and LED fog lights. The chiseled hood features a distinctive and aggressive raised center, and the deeply sculpted body sides enhance the visual length and strength of the lower body.

Further, a new laser brazing process that joins the dramatically arching roof to the body side panels creates a clean appearance with no garnish over the rain channels. The similarly low and wide rear view is finished off with an upswept decklid, distinctive LED light-pipe taillights and cleanly integrated dual exhaust ports. Overall aerodynamic efficiency is improved by approximately 3 percent (based on EX trim) to make it the most streamlined Accord yet.

      Echo Chamber anyone?

      There are not that many body design changes between the 17, 18. They did a few and everyone went crazy.

      I wish I could post a stationary side profile of these two cars so you could see not only how similar they look, but how plain and seniors car the 17 looks by comparison.

      Tough call. Things I like better about each. I prefer the taillights on the 17 and think the sport rims on that model was the nicest Honda ever made. Also like the V6 better than the turbo 4. Yes I know the 4 is faster but the 6 is still going to feel more refined during daily driving. I also like how the outgoing model actually has more stance to it from a standpoint of (I don’t know the perfect term to use here) but let’s go with height/girth meaning it doesn’t like skinny/lighter than every other car on the road it competes with. I also like the interior on the 17 a lot as I do the 18 but while a lot of people didn’t like the dual screen setup I do and also like the high gloss dark wood trim. Now onto the 18. The 18 looks better going by from the side. The hood is flat instead of sloping which will always make a car look longer and more expensive from that standpoint. However I like the 17 from head on and from behind better probably. The interior on the 18 is also very nice. It’s understated compared to the 17 and I don’t mean that in a bad way. I like the wood trim on the 18 as well. More of a matte finish with open pores, much like an Audi. Very tasteful. What I don’t like about the new accord is how skinny it is. When next to any other car at a stop light the car appears to have no stance whatsoever. The other day the car was next to an impala waiting at a light as I sat behind the two and I understand they’re not direct competitors but it looked like the impala could swallow the accord whole if it wanted. It gave the appearance of being twice as tall and twice as heavy and therefore in a way I believe more expensive looking. Like I said I like both. As I write this article (fall of ‘18) I would probably try to find a leftover loaded ‘17 sitting on a lot somewhere and get a great deal on it especially when you consider the 17 has Apple car play and basically all the technology of an ‘18. But then again I’m always a sucker for the newest model of any car just because it’s how I am. Like I said tough call and I wouldn’t knock someone for choosing either of the two. I hear the deals on the new accord are relatively awful however and in the end I’d probably buy a loaded to the gills 17 and pocket 10 grand for things like tints and whatever other little touches I think would make the car look nice and still have idk like $8k extra in the bank.

      I could not agree more the 2018 is not a good looking car at all !! It almost looks cheap like a Hyundai.. I got lucky landed a great deal on a brand new 2017 v6 for the wife ..I have to say it feels more powerful than the 278hp they promote

      Honda have made some great Accord models over the years and IMO, the 4th, 8th and 9th GENs have looked the best. I was in the market a few months back for a new Accord and after looking at the 10th GEN over and over and over again and testing driving one-I couldn't buy it over the 2017. Also knowing the 18 prices would not be that negotiable-I thought I can negotiate more with the outgoing 17 model and get more car for my money. I was right. Got into a 17 V6 Touring with all the trims added such as side body molding, tinted windows, weather mats, trunk tray, bumper applique and splash guards for $29,500 +TTL and the .9% financing. The handling on the 17 V6 touring is so much better than the same price 18 Accord (you may get an 18 EX 2.0 trim level at best at that price). There are a few 17s new left out there that you can negotiate and get more car with what I mentioned I got. Hope this helps those who are on the fence as to which model to buy and get a little closer to making a decision. For me, getting more for the 17 V6 made so much more (dollars) sense all the way around, plus I think it looks way better than the 18. Lastly, the 19" rims on the touring is the icing on the 17 touring that much better than the 18 models.

      Fantastic channel, you certainly deserves a billion subscribers, i was in dire need of a car channel which would show each and every aspect of cars from each and every angle with sharp crisp camera work and full description including price, availability, full specs and at last i found it. Bravo and hats off to you, keep up the good work
