Ottawa Auto Show: 2018 Honda Accord

Entirely redesigned this year, the new 2018 Honda Accord has received several major titles in recent months. The new Accord was named the North American Car of the Year at the Detroit International Auto Show in January, and last February it was named Canadian Car of the Year by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada. Come discover what makes the new 2018 Honda Accord so interesting at the Ottawa Auto Show today.

Turbo engines now under the hood of the 2018 Honda Accord

While the old Accord offered a normally aspirated four-cylinder engine along a V6 engine, the new generation of the Japanese mid-size sedan is powered by turbocharged engines exclusively. These engines have the advantage of being more fuel efficient in addition to being more powerful and refined on the road.

The first powertrain is a 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder engine with 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission, this engine delivers its torque below the 2,000 rpm mark which translates into brisk acceleration and convincing passing.

But that's not all. Indeed, the new Accord is also more economical with an average fuel consumption rating of only 7.9 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 6.3 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.The second option is a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine that develops 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Very powerful, this engine is also more fuel-efficient than the V6 it replaces.

This engine can be paired with a 10-speed automatic which provides smoother accelerations and impressive fuel economy numbers.

In addition to its new engines, the 2018 Honda Accord offers a roomier interior and a trunk that offers more cargo space than most rivals in the new Honda sedan’s segment.
